After a breakthrough Saturday at the Darwin Triple Crown that saw the team and Jimmy Golding’s first pole position, Sunday in the Top End has once again seen both PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaros in the Top Ten Shootout, another race finish just one spot off the podium, and a solid move up the championship points.

To start the day, Tim Slade was third fastest in qualifying in the #23 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaro, while Golding was P6 in his #31 PremiAir Nulon Racing entry.

Following the Top Ten Shootout Golding lined up for the race on the second row in P4, while Slade occupied the P8 grid spot for the second and final 48-lap race of the weekend.

While Golding would lose a spot at the start, a flying pit stop saw him reclaim it in the lane, going on to finish the race in P4 with less tyres than those around him.

Slade meanwhile advanced to P8 before a slow stop saw him lose a number of positions and left him to work his way back up through the field to a finishing position of P13 when the team felt like a top ten would have otherwise been likely.

The overall strong results across the weekend sees Golding move five spots up the championship ladder from 12th to 5th, while Slade moves up two spots from 21st to 19th. PremiAir Nulon Racing meanwhile also advanced up the Team’s Championship order, from 10th to 8th position.

PremiAir Nulon Racing now prepares to head to the Townsville 500 across July 5-7. For event information, visit


Jimmy Golding – #31 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaro

“It has been a pretty good weekend for us. We did an awesome job in qualifying to get the pole position, which was unreal, and then had a good race today, turning the car around in race trim and it was really fast. So, we come away with two P4s, a whole load of points, and we moved up in both the team’s and the driver’s championship with good points for both of us. We also gained a lot overall with setup changes and got a fair direction on the cars which we can use heading into Townsville.”

Romy Mayer – Race Engineer for the #31 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaro

“Straight after the race you always think that was so close to a podium, but obviously that is what everyone thinks! In the end it was an amazing weekend for us, the pole obviously was great, and then to have two P4 results in the races, I think we can be happy with that. We didn’t quite maximise it like the big boys up the front, but I think for us as a young and smaller team it is an amazing result and we can definitely be happy with that.”

Tim Slade – #23 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaro

“Qualifying was good for us this morning. We went backwards a little in the shootout and then lacked a little bit in the race, where you definitely want to be moving forwards in the race not backwards which has been a bit of a common theme, so we have a bit of homework to do back in the workshop.”

Ludo Lacroix – PremiAir Nulon Racing Competition Director and Race Engineer for the #23 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaro

“It was a strong showing for both cars. There were some difficulties in the pit stop which cost a little bit for Tim for position which meant he had to fight a bit too hard. I think on the one lap pace we have definitely made some progress, and we can keep that in the bank and hopefully show it again. We need to make some progress in the pit stops and also in some areas of race craft. Jimmy showed some great pace today, even though in the race he only had two tyres (put on) where most of the other people did four as we didn’t want to take the risk of taking too much time doing four. So, he did a great job, and I think that was the highlight of the day to have the P4 with less tyres. Tim unfortunately got caught in a couple of battles and together with the slow pit stop it pushed us to end up P13, but we should have been in the top ten.”
