Lee Holdsworth is on the hunt for valuable Supercars Championship points that have escaped the team at the latest rounds.
Holdsworth is aiming to get the team’s momentum rolling at the Barbagallo Raceway event with a handful of valuable Championship points from Races 11 & 12.
The qualifying layout for the Perth Races will also follow the same structure as the Tasmania SuperSprint, with three rolling sessions eliminating drivers to make up the starting grid.
“WE’VE HAD A ROUGH TROT LATELY BUT I’M HUNGRIER THAN EVER TO MAKE UP FOR LOST POINTS. ALTHOUGH IT’S STILL EARLY IN THE SEASON, THE MOMENTUM HAS TO START HERE. IT’S BACK TO BASICS AND TIME FOR RESULTS.”
Team Owner Charlie Schwerkolt is looking forward to seeing his team bounce back from a tough run at this weekend’s Western Australia event.
“HANGING OUT FOR A GOOD RESULT IN THE WEST AFTER OUR DISAPPOINTMENT WITH THE FRONT SPLITTER BARS IN PHILLIP ISLAND. I THINK WITH GOOD STRATEGY AND A CONSERVATIVE APPROACH WITH THE TYRES DUE TO THE HIGHLY ABRASIVE TRACK SURFACE, THE TEAM IS IN GOOD SHAPE FOR SOME WELL-DESERVED TOP TEN FINISHES.”
Preston Hire Racing will now head to the Perth SuperSprint, to be held on May 4 – 6, with all races to be televised LIVE on Fox Sports.
