Nulon Racing and its drivers, Tim Slade (#23 Nulon Racing Camaro) and Jimmy Golding (#31 Nulon Racing Camaro) are champing at the bit to get back into some longer races at this weekend’s Townsville 500 – round six of the 2023 Supercars Championship.
While all but one of the events held so far this season have been run under a sprint-race format, the July 7-9 event at Townsville’s 2.86km Reid Park Street Circuit will see the return of twin 250k races for the first time this year since the season-opening Newcastle 500.
Both outings will feature a compulsory pit stop after lap five, with each entry required to take on 100L of fuel and conduct a tyre change.
For Golding, the event is extra special because it is where he made his debut for Premiair Racing following a mid-season call-up in 2022.
“The Townsville 500 is definitely a special event for me. Last year’s was my debut with the team and while it was certainly difficult, it was really enjoyable to return back to Supercars fulltime at Townsville. It was the beginning of a new chapter in my career and something I will always cherish,” Golding said.
“We have learnt a lot since then and improved a lot. Of course, we have new cars with Gen 3 this time around, so I am really, excited to get back to Reid Park and see what we can do in the Nulon Racing Camaro.”
Slade is also keen to get into the action at Townsville.
“Definitely up there with one of my favourite events – nice location, fun track and I enjoy the longer races so I’m looking forward to that.” Slade said.
“Like every new track to the Gen 3 car this year, it’ll be interesting to see/feel how the cars will behave and especially over the race distance.”
