Australian Team Selection Races Series for 2023

Ski Racing Australia (SRA) Ski Racing NSW (SRNSW) and Ski Racing Victoria (SRV) are excited to announce details for the 2023 Australian Selection Race Series.

SRNSW will host back to back races at Gosford over the weekend of the 12th & 13th August on the IWWF World Water Ski Racing Championships course.

SRV will host selection races 3 and 4 at Mulwala for the final chance for teams to earn points to represent Australia on the 26th & 27th August where another back to back race weekend will be held.

With the IWWF World Water Ski Racing Championships being held in Australia for the first time since 2011, this is a fantastic opportunity for Australian Teams to compete at the World Championships without having to go through the logistics and costs associated to compete overseas.

The IWWF Racing Council are also trialling for 2023 the opportunity for 6 Teams from each Country to compete in each class and this is leading to high expectations that a large number of teams will attend the Australian Selection Races Series.
