Nulon Racing was pleased recently to take delivery of a brand-new complete car from Triple Eight Race Engineering.
The car has been purchased as a spare for the team, which fields the #23 Nulon Racing Camaro and #31 Nulon Racing Camaro for Tim Slade and Jimmy Golding.
In its short time with the team so far, the chassis has already been put to work, playing an important part in Nulon Racing’s pre-Gold Coast 500 activities, including playing starring roles in Supercars’ pre-event Sundale Bridge activation and the FIA Girls on Track visit to the team’s Arundel workshop.
“In the new Gen3 era of Supercars, it is a smart decision to have a complete spare car on hand if you are able to,” Nulon Racing Team Manager, Stephen Robertson, said.
“Accidents happen – we saw that in particular with Jimmy last year at the Gold Coast event – and as we have seen across the 2023 season putting these new cars back together after heavy accidents like that takes quite a bit.
“This is especially problematic when you have short turnaround times between events, as we have at some points throughout the season.
“If we had a similar incident to what we had at the Gold Coast last year at Bathurst, for instance, we wouldn’t be able to have that car back online in time to compete at the next event.
“So, when the opportunity came up to have such a high-quality, brand-new spare car on hand, Peter was swift to act.
“This purchase gives us a lot of confidence heading into the final round of the 2023 season and into 2024, and we thank Triple Eight Race Engineering for delivering such a great product to us today.”
Nulon Racing will next be on-track for the season-ending Adelaide 500 across November 23-26. For event information, visit www.supercars.com.au
