SUPERCHEAP AUTO BATHURST 1000 MEETING - Mt PANORAMA - BRIAN BOYD PREVIEW OF DUNLOP SERIES
- PAYCE Headquarters, Sydney NSW.
The three PAYCE sponsored drivers are having a highly successful year in this years' development series.
"PAYCE sponsored drivers, James Golding, Macauley Jones and Richard Muscat, are having a very successful year in the development series.
Currently sporting third, ninth and tenth positions for the championship going into the Bathurst round" noted Mr Brian Boyd from the pit lane.
Team PAYCE Racers for the Dunlop Series 2016:
"James and Macauley will have a busy time at Bathurst, as they have deservedly earned themselves co-driving duties with the GRM and Brad Jones Racing Supercars' teams respectively.
"Since Sandown, they have been back in the workshops working on their cars to make sure they are tip top condition for the most important race of the series. James and Macauley had a bit more work to do with their teams - James also had to work on the number 34 Volvo as well as his own car and Macauley's number 14 Commodore needed repairs to the chassis structure, but is now ready to go," remarked Mr Boyd.
"Richard notched up his best season result to date in the first DVS race at Sandown with a podium to finish in second spot. On Sunday, his team mate, James went one better and won the second race and scored his second win for the season, which turned out to be some consolation for what was to come with his crash after a tyre failure in the Sandown 500.
"Macauley was caught up in some incidents at Sandown and to his credit he recovered well to score two top 10 finishes and gain some valuable points. He has had a busy couple of weeks in the lead up to Bathurst repairing the damage sustained, but no doubt he is excited about the opportunity to test himself against the best in Supercars."
Five rounds down and Three to go ...
"With five rounds down and three to go, the three young PAYCE drivers continue to grow in experience and skills in what is arguably one of the most challenging categories in the sport today,' noted Brian Boyd.
"With a fair share of luck on their side, they could well produce some great results again this weekend at Bathurst.
The track schedule includes a 40 minute practice session on Thursday and again on Friday, followed by qualifying on Friday afternoon to set the field for Saturday's mini-enduro," said Mr Boyd. The mini-enduro over 250 kilometres (41 laps) gets underway at 2.05pm on Saturday.
