TOP 12 HIGHLIGHTS TOWNSVILLE SUNDAY FOR NULON RACING

Jimmy Golding has held on aboard the #31 Nulon Racing Camaro amidst a range of obstacles to bring home a solid top 12 result in the final 250km race of the Townsville 500 this afternoon.

On the other side of the garage, Tim Slade continued to be plagued by power steering issues in the #23 Nulon Racing Camaro and following a lengthy mid-race visit to the garage, persevered to bring home a finish and some valuable points.

“The #31 had a fairly clean race, and while a slow pit stop ultimately cost us a top ten, there was a good recovery by the guys and Jimmy to put us in a solid top 12 position by the end of the race,” Nulon Racing Director of Engineering, Geoff Slater, said.

“For Tim it has been a tough weekend with some unexpected steering issues plaguing the #23, which hurt his progress in qualifying and also in race trim unfortunately.

“We will take the lessons we need to from this one, put in the work to find out what exactly is going on with the #23, and make sure we can do a better job in Sydney in a few weeks’ time.”

Golding had started Sunday afternoon’s race from 14th on the grid and was running well within the top ten in the early stages.

“It was not too bad of a race for me. We had pretty good car speed compared to yesterday and made up a lot of positions early on,” Golding said.

“Unfortunately, we had a little bit of a mishap in the pits which cost us a bit of time, and then also how the safety car fell didn’t really work out for us either.

“It is still a solid finish for us with P12. We had good speed, and there is a lot we can take away ready for the next round.”

While it was a tough weekend for Slade, he is maintaining his sense of humour.

“That is Townsville run and won! We ran it, but we didn’t win it,” he laughed.

“It was a struggle for us today in qualifying and then unfortunately in the race we had a power steering issue where we had to pit to fix that.

“After that we basically just trucked on for the rest of the race and got a finish. It has been tough, but we will just aim to be better at the next one.”

Nulon Racing will next be on-track with the Supercars Championship for the Sydney SuperNight event at Sydney Motorsport Park across the 28th to the 30th of July, 2023. For event information, visit www.supercars.com.au
