I can’t believe we’re heading into the final round of the Toyota 86 Series! I last drove in my Toyota 86 at Bathurst, so I cannot wait to jump back into the car this weekend for the Newcastle event.
I haven’t been to this circuit before, so I can’t wait to get there and check it out. It’s a street style circuit, which is a style I really enjoy. I’ve been watching a heap of YouTube videos of the track to try and familiarise myself with it, as there’s no simulator videos out just yet; so it’ll certainly be interesting come this weekend!
We had a few issues with the car at Bathurst and these have now all been fixed – dad and I have been busy preparing the car and I’m hoping we can have a successful round and can finish on a high. I’d love to come away with a top ten finish this weekend, I’m currently sitting 22nd in the Championship standings – so my focus is having a solid, consistent weekend.
I’ve just competed in the final round of the Legend Car Series last weekend, where I managed to come away with 3rd for the round. It was certainly a fun year racing the Legend Cars.
I’d like to give a massive thank you to all my sponsors and supporters who have backed me for the 2018 season; Brema Group, Charman Earthmoving & Heavy Haulage, CanCut, JKM Excavations, Funky Car Skins, Above All Roof Maintenance and Trick Fitness – we couldn’t have done it without you all, so thank you.
Also, a big thanks to my parents and to dad; I’m forever grateful for you helping to make my dreams come true.
Here’s hoping we have a successful weekend and finish the year on a high!
We hit the track for the first practice session on Friday 23rd November at 9:40am.
Bring it on.
