Thirty one drivers will head to AutoKlene Hobart Raceway for the Grand National which will wrap up the 2024 Tassie Tiger Super Sedan Trail.

Five states will be represented in the thirty one car field and all drivers will be looking to stop the on fire Brad Pascoe.

Pascoe has claimed the best part of $25000 across the first two rounds of the Tassie Tiger Super Sedan Trail, and will head to Hobart chasing another $7000 pay day.

Pascoe will look to create further history in Tasmania, and become the first ever driver to win the Tasmanian Title, Grand Prix, and Grand National all in the same season.

Three former winners are in the field, and they all stand at the top of the most winningest driver in Grand National history.

David Nichols has won the event six times, and he will be joined by Matty Pascoe and Darren Kane who both have five Grand National victories to their name.

Nichols hasn’t won the event since 2000, and will look to to wrap up his Tasmanian season with another strong performance against the best in the country in his own back yard.

Pascoe has dominated the Grand National in recent history, with four of his five wins coming in the last six years. Pascoe will hope to end his Tasmanian trip on a high after a DNF at the Grand Prix last weekend.

Kane last won the event in 2017, and will come to his original home track full of confidence after a runner up finish in the Grand Prix last weekend.

Steve Latham was back to his best last weekend at Grand Prix and was the first Tasmanian across the line. Latham will look to put on a show on his home track and keep the prize money in his home town.

Sean Black bounced back at Grand Prix with a top five finish after a big roll over in the Tasmanian Title. Black will hope to build on that performance and claim his first Grand National victory.

Each driver will compete in three heat races each on Friday night, that will set the fields for split field preliminary feature races.

Drivers will return on Saturday night to compete in a further two rounds of heat races, with the top eighteen in the points standings locking straight into the pole shuffle, and remaining starters transferring via the B Main.
