2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship

Lee Holdsworth is looking to harness recent gains on the Preston Hire Commodore at the Auckland SuperSprint for Round 15 of the Supercars Championship this coming weekend.

Holdsworth is looking forward to heading across the Tasman to the only International Round on the Supercars Calendar, where he finished P10 in Saturday’s Race in 2017.

The two Races on New Zealand’s North Island will run for 70 Laps each with Sunday’s Race including a Top Ten Shootout to determine the Grid.

Holdsworth ran just outside of the Top Ten in Qualifying at the Gold Coast 600 earlier this month and believes recent gains should provide him with the opportunity to fight for a promising result. 

“LOOKING FORWARD TO HEAD BACK OVER THE TASMAN TO PUKEKOHE. SUCH A FAST, BUMPY, CHALLENGING LITTLE CIRCUIT THAT PUTS ON AN EXCITING RACE EACH YEAR. THE RECENT GAINS WE’VE MADE WITH THE CAR SHOULD GIVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO FIGHT FOR A STRONG SHOWING.”
