News // PHILLIP ISLAND SUPERSPRINT PREVIEW
+

With the Phillip Island event following a week after the Symmons Plains event, this is the first time in five years (since 2014) where Supercars Championship rounds have been held on consecutive weekends. In 2014 the field raced at Symmons Plains one weekend, then Winton the next.

 

Tim has 22 race starts at Phillip Island and 22 finishes, making him 1 of 11 drivers to have a 100% finishing rate at the Victorian circuit. Tim has claimed 6 top ten finishes, with one of those being a podium finish. For the Freightliner Racing driver, he will be looking to add to add to his top finishes, only having finished outside the top ten on two occasions this year.

 

Tim won’t be the only Freightliner Racing Supercar on track this weekend. The Super3 Series begins, with 18-year-old karting star Madeline Stewart set to race in Freightliner colours as part of BJR’s junior driver program. A very exciting weekend with a huge field of established and rising talent set to hit the track for their first time in 2019.
