We’re back in action for week 2 of the North Queensland double, this time, for three sprint races at the Townsville SuperSprint.
After a challenging first weekend, we are pumped to get back on-track just a few days later to turn it around.
Two days, three sprint races, 110km each.
It is a change up from last weekend’s longer races, this time, three 39-lap races across Saturday and Sunday.
The format is condensed over two days, with on-track running not starting until practice Saturday morning.
One compulsory stop for a minimum of two tyres means no fuel, quick stops, and the gamble of whether you take two tyres for a quicker stop or four tyres for better car speed.
All running will be on the soft tyre this weekend.
We’ve got five sets per car for the weekend.
Reid Park is a half street, half purpose built, 2.86km track that sits just outside the Townsville CBD.
In typical street circuit fashion, it is a concrete jungle in parts… any mistake is punished by the concrete barriers that surround the track.

“Really excited by the opportunity to go racing again here in Townsville, we’ve put our heads together during the week, and worked pretty hard to try and turn it around.
“There’s been some really positive discussions around our direction for this weekend, so I’m looking forward to seeing how we end up, we’ve got such an awesome bunch of people here that are willing to do whatever we can to improve.”
“Really looking forward to getting back out there this weekend that’s for sure.
“It’s not often you can go straight back on track at the same place, so this type of data we get from week one is almost better than a test day, because you can see where you stack up against everyone else, where the strengths are, where the weaknesses are.
“The format will change things up a bit, so I’m excited to see where we end up.”
