MID-SEASON

EVEN THOUGH it was disappointing to have the Kuala Lumpur round of the Supercar Championship cancelled, it has given everyone a bit of a mid-season break.
 
When we hit the track this weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park, it will have been almost a month since we last raced at Queensland Raceway. But a lot has been going on during that time.
 
After the Ipswich round Riana and I rode 350km from Townsville to Cairns for charity. Collectively all the participants raised an amazing $500,000 for the Children’s Cancer Institute, which is awesome to be a part of.
 
We then spent a couple of days in the Northern Territory for a fund-raiser for the Australian Sports Foundation around the Katherine Cup. All up, the exercise raised $50,000, which was handed over to the Foundation for grass roots sport development.
 
After that I got to spend a few days at Falls Creek enjoying some fresh snow before flying back up North for the Townsville Triathlon Festival.
 
Then amongst that came the big news that Holden has switched its ‘HRT’ factory-team support from Walkinshaw Racing to Triple Eight Race Engineering.
 
It may have caught a few people by surprise, but I think it’s a huge positive that Holden has confirmed its continued involvement in Supercars.
 
From my perspective it’s no bad thing either, with our Tekno Autosports team so closely aligned with Triple Eight. I am looking forward to learning more about the new car and its development.
 
But it’s back to business this week as we head to Sydney Motorsport Park.
 
It’s important that we come out firing at Sydney Motorsport Park to keep us in the title chase. I know we’re going to be strong in the Endurance Cup with Jono Webb stepping aboard to co-drive, so we need to use that to setup a serious tilt at the Supercar Championship title.
 
We’ve done all our homework for Sydney and we know what we need to make the car fast there. Everyone at Tekno is working hard to make sure it’s a successful weekend and I can’t wait to get back out there and make it happen.
