In a meeting that included 12 on-track sessions for the Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 V8 Supercar from Erebus Motorsport, IRWIN Racing kept its 100 percent finishing record while in the middle of continued development of the all-new race car.

After finishing races #1 and #2 in 18th and 25th place, Holdsworth completed his weekend with 17th and 22nd placings on Sunday. It rounded-out a busy fortnight for Holdsworth and the IRWIN crew after last weekend's races at Symmons Plains in Tasmania.

The IRWIN car and equipment will now be air-freighted back to their Gold Coast base in preparation for the next round at Perth on 3-5 May.

It will once again be a busy period with an engine upgrade being currently worked on with through technical partners HWA and AMG in Germany. This upgrade will be on the IRWIN Racing E63 in Western Australia.
