THE WORD FROM TIM

The Supercars hit the streets of Newcastle for the first time today for 2 x twenty-minute practice sessions. The two practice sessions involved learning the circuit and tuning the cars to suit the tricky track.

 

Tim “It was great to finally cut some laps of the Newcastle circuit, we’ve been talking about it for months and with the huge crowds here early this morning, it’s definitely shaping up to be a great weekend.”

“It’s a pretty wild track. Pretty bumpy and there are a couple of hairy bits around turn 5-6. Going through that downhill section where it’s a little off camber, the rear has the potential to get away from you there.”

“The braking zone into the hairpin is quite tricky too, you can’t see the corner until you’re going into it. Overall a tough little circuit but its going to be a lot of fun.”
