• Over the past seven months the Super Sedan Class Technical Advisory Committee (CTAC) have investigated the potential implementation of the Chevrolet CT525 engine as an alternate option into the class of Super Sedans.

    Both the fuel injected and the carburettor version of the Chevrolet CT525 were investigated at length in order to introduce an alternate engine that is more affordable and is readily available to all competitors in the premier class of sedan racing,

    It is expected that the CT525 will prove to be a very competitive and durable engine and one that is much less expensive than current Super Sedan engines.

    Technical information, specifications and details of discussions with engine suppliers and importers were collected during the CTAC investigation. This information and the majority support of the Super Sedan competitor group made it very easy for the Speedway Sedans Australia Board to endorse the decision to implement the CT525 as an alternate engine.

    The introduction of the CT525 as an alternative engine for Super Sedans will be effective immediately.
