This year's series was the most exciting in history, and came to a nail biting finish at the Telstra Sydney 500 at the Homebush Street Circuit on December 2-4, 2011.
The top two drivers, Adrian Cottrell and Tyler Owen, entered the final round with one point separating them. The pair gave it their all over the three races and both drivers finished the final race with 341 points each. The Championship had to be decided by a count back, a tally of first places in the Series.
Cottrell, who had won three out of the six rounds, was awarded the history-making Championship.
