Supabarn Motorsports Continue Impressive Run on Home Track

Supabarn Motorsports returned to the top ten in the Australian Carrera Cup Championship today at their home track, Wakefield Park.

In a frantic opening race of the third round of the championship, James and Theo Koundouris finished 10th and 13th respectively.

Commenting after the race James spoke about how physically demanding the circuit is;

"The track is one of the tightest that we race at and is one corner after another without long straights to break it up. As a result, we have no time to relax during the 20-minute race; we are constantly wrestling the car round the track, pushing as hard as we can.

"The racing today was as close and hard fought as ever and we are pleased to return to the top ten this weekend. We are expecting tomorrow's two races to be just as hard and just as exciting. With some of the most talented drivers from Australia and New Zealand competing in the category, the standard of racing is very high making for some of the closest racing you will see."

Being held so close to their home town of Canberra, brothers James and Theo have been racing with their family and friends cheering them on from the sidelines and are hoping to see plenty of support from Canberra at the track tomorrow.

The team's Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars are prepared and run by Michael Newton Racing and the team receives support from local Canberra company, Supabarn Supermarkets and Dare Flavoured Milk.
