THE WORD FROM TIM

Supercar drivers rolled out for their practice day at the top end, with temperatures topping at a warm 33 degrees.

 

Times were close as expected, with Tim less than half a second off Chaz Mosterts’ quick time in practice one, and times dropped again in practice two. With a mechanical adjustment leaving Slade without the opportunity to have one final shot at completing a flying lap, the team will have the Freightliner Racing Supercar ready for tomorrow’s knockout qualifying battle.

 

Tim Slade and the team receive additional support this weekend from partners Snap-On Tools & Puma Energy, with their branding proudly displayed front and centre on the Freightliner Racing Supercar.

 

TIM

“Darwin has been one of the better performing tracks for the Freightliner Racing team, our cars have been speedy there in the past and both my team-mate Nick Percat and I have picked up podium finishes there so it would be nice to do that again.”

 

“As always, heat and tyre degradation will be a focus for teams here this weekend. For us, we are looking to make some qualifying gains too.”

 

“I’ve been reminded a few times about me lining up for my 150th round in Supercars this weekend. Besides making me feel a little bit old, it’s a pretty good thing to have been in the sport and achieved that milestone. There have been some good memories made over that time; notably my first Supercars race win with Freightliner Racing.”
