News // WINTON SUPERSPRINT PREVIEW
+

Tim Slade and the Freightliner Racing team return to Winton Motor Raceway this weekend, the venue where Tim took out his first ever Supercar race win with the team in 2016. It was a dominating weekend for the Freightliner Racing team, with Tim winning both races and claiming a pole position along the way.

With a test day completed last week, the team head to their home track as prepared as can be and are eager to get back on the podium this weekend.

Ash Walsh will jump behind the wheel of the Freightliner Racing Commodore again this weekend, as co-drivers have a dedicated practice session on Saturday morning. Walsh scored a Super2 round win at the last Supercar event in Perth.

The Super3 Series will be on track this weekend as one of the highly-anticipated support categories, with Madeline Stewart in the Freightliner Racing VEII Commodore and Josh Fife in the Natural Gas & Water VEII Commodore representing the Brad Jones Racing team. This is their second round for the season, and with a couple of test days under their belt at the Victorian circuit, we are excited to see what the rising stars can achieve.
