Slade first made headlines in 2006 when he finished second in the Australian Formula Ford Championship.
Slade progressed to the V8 Development Series in 2007, taking his first round win with his own team in 2008 and claiming the Privateers Cup for the best non-main game affiliated driver.
Slade's persistance captured the attention of Paul Morris, and he was rewarded with a full-time V8 drive for the Supercheap Auto Racing squad in 2009, scoring top ten results in the Phillip Island and Bathurst Endurance Races.
A shift to Stone Brothers Racing in 2010 yielded further improvements, Slade finishing 16th before taking his first podium finish in 2011 en-route to ninth overall.
2012 was even more impressive, Tim finished 5th overall after scoring more podiums along with his first career pole.
The 2013 season was more challenging, Slade remaining with his team through its transitition to Erebus Motorsport and struggling for results as the team developed its Mercedes Benz entries
Slade returned to a Holden Commodore in 2014 and 2015 with Walkinshaw Racing, improving his results again. After team changes at the end of 2015 Tim found himself an opportunity to join Brad Jones Racing in the #14 Freightliner Racing entry and jumped at the chance to drive this race-winning entry. The team are confident that together they will achieve Tim’s first V8 Supercars race win.
Julian Stannard gained his degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Queensland before heading to the Motorsport Training Australia campus in Wodonga. There he completed a Certificate III in Motorsport Technology.
Julian joined the BJR team in 2010 and worked for two seasons on the team’s 21 car in the Data Engineer role. He progressed to Race Engineer on the 21 Car and worked with David Wall in 2012 and with Dale Wood in 2013.
Julian rates Car 21’s podium finish at the 2014 Winton round and provisionally 3rd fastest at the 2014 Bathurst 1000 as career highlights to date.
