Budding motorsport aficionados from Horizons College were given the chance to be right in the thick of the Supercars action by the PremiAir Nulon Racing team today, with a group of 20 students invited to be part of the team’s official pre-season Test Day program at Queensland Raceway.

These students, who are completing automotive qualifications as part of their senior studies at the independent Special Assistance School based in Caboolture, were able to witness up-close the preparations of drivers Tim Slade and Jimmy Golding and their engineers and crew as they undertook vital development work on the #23 and #31 PremiAir Nulon Racing Supercars ahead of the season-opening Bathurst 500 (February 23-25).

PremiAir Nulon Racing Team Manager, Stephen Robertson, also took some time to speak with the students about what was happening and to answer their questions.

“I have no doubt that future members of our great sport were here with us today, and it gives me and the entire team immense pride to be able to play a small part in inspiring and educating these young minds on all things Supercars,” Roberston said.

“We always need more great people in motorsport, so we take any chance to help foster enthusiasm in the upcoming generation very seriously, so of course we were very pleased to have this amazing group of students with us at Queensland Raceway today from Horizons College.

“We were certainly very impressed with their keen interest and considered questions – you never know, perhaps we met some future PremiAir Nulon Racing mechanics, engineers or drivers here today!”

This is the seventh time Horizons College students have enjoyed a valued learning experience with PremiAir Nulon Racing, with groups having previously attended a number of high-profile drag racing events with the team in previous years as well as a Supercars test day in 2022.

Established in 2014, Horizons College of Learning and Enrichment assists young people across years 7 to 12 for whom mainstream education has not meaningful. The college’s overarching emphasis on student wellbeing, small class sizes and personalised learning ensure its students have the positive educational experience they deserve.

“Experiences like the one offered today by PremiAir Nulon Racing are so very important for our school and our students,” Horizons College Principal, Jane Robinson, said.

“By providing meaningful and hands-on learning opportunities such as this in areas our students are keenly interested in, we are able to further foster their passion and their commitment to their desired future pathways while further expanding their understanding and knowledge – and all in a fun and interactive way.

“Today’s involvement in the test day is an opportunity that many of these students would not have otherwise had and really is a highlight of the year. We couldn’t be more grateful to the PremiAir Nulon Racing team for having our students along today, taking the time to make them feel welcome and answering their questions.

“I know each and every one of our students will be following PremiAir Nulon Racing’s progress with keen interest across the year, forever remembering the highly valuable experience they have had here today.”

Today’s test day at Queensland Raceway precedes the beginning of the 2024 Supercars Championship season, which will officially begin at the Bathurst 500 across February 23-25. For event information, visit
