JUL 07, 2024

Townsville Day Three


Cam Waters narrowly missed out on pole position in the top ten shootout by 0.0016 seconds, marking the closest pole margin in Townsville Supercars history. Randle landed in fourth position as we headed into the final race of the weekend. Waters and Randle got off to a flyer in race fourteen. Differing strategies saw Waters do two stops and Payne do three, handing over the lead. Waters held off Mostert to keep second place. Randle had a solid race, finishing in fifth. With Will Brown out on lap 1, Waters made gains in the championship chase.

“We had an awesome weekend. Rolled out of the truck super-fast. Awesome to get a pole and a win yesterday. Second in the shootout today and finished second. We had a really good car for a two-stopper, not a three-stopper. A massive thank you to the team.” – Cam Waters.

“Another fifth-place finish, disappointed we didn’t get a podium this weekend. It’s a really big turnaround from Darwin and awesome points for the team. Congratulations to Cam and the Monster team.” – Thomas Randle.

Our next round is at Sydney Motorsport Park, 17-19 July, where we’ll be running a wildcard for Lochie Dalton.

Super 2

The team finished repairing Brad Vaughan’s car in the early hours of Sunday morning. Vaughan qualified in fourth for race two before receiving a three-spot grid penalty for blocking in qualifying. Vaughan and Gray had some first lap drama at turn three, seeing them pushed down the order. The mid-pack fight was one to watch, with Lochie Dalton finishing eleventh, Gray sixteenth, and Vaughan seventeenth. The next round of Super 2 is at Sandown in September.

Toyota 86

Charlie Nash had a solid weekend of results in his first-ever round of the Toyota 86 Series. Race three saw some on-track battles, but Nash enjoyed his first weekend of racing.

“Bit disappointed to be put in the wall, but I saved it pretty well, I feel. I tried to work my way back up the field but couldn’t make a pass. If I had one more lap, I would have made a few more passes, but that’s racing. We’ll come back stronger for Sydney.” – Charlie Nash.
