F5000 in Australia in November
The MSC NZ Formula 5000 Tasman Cup Revival Series will feature two rounds in Australia this spring to kick-off the six meeting calendar. Historic Sandown and Sydney Motorsport Park will host events in November, before the action heads across the ditch in early 2015.

The full calendar is Sandown, November 8-9; Sydney Motorsport Park, November 29-30; Hampton Downs, January 16-18 & January 23-25; Mike Pero Motorsport Park, Christchurch, February 6-7; Manfeild, February 12-15.
