« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on November 23, 2017, 01:33:48 PM »
History making day for Supercars in Newcastle

A new chapter will be written into the history of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship today, when cars take to the challenging Coates Hire Newcastle 500 circuit for the very first time.

The street circuit today becomes the 32nd venue in history to host a round of the Australian Touring Car Championship/Virgin Australia Supercars Championship when Supercars begin practice on the streets of NSW second-largest city.

19-year old Newcastle local, Charlotte Poynting, will have the honour of being the first driver to complete a lap on the specially designed track, after winning a competition to lead the Aussie Racing Cars support category around the streets of her home town in the first ever on-track session.

Later today, Supercars will take to the track for the very first time, in a critical practice session ahead of a busy weekend of racing.
 
Video News Releases will be issued today and will include:
Highlights from the opening day of inaugural Coates Hire Newcastle 500
Interviews with drivers following historic first sessions
Colour vision of fans enjoying opening day of event
Highlights from today's practice sessions
There will be two Supercars practice sessions today in front of what is expected to be a huge crowd. Tomorrow there will be a qualifying session and the inaugural 250km race on the streets of Newcastle.

On Sunday, there will be a qualifying session, a Top 10 Shootout and a potentially championship deciding 250km race to close out the 2017 Supercars season.

Six-time title winner Jamie Whincup holds a narrow 30-point championship lead over rising star Scott McLaughlin heading into the event, while McLaughlin's Shell V-Power Racing Team leads the Teams' Championship by 105 points from the dominant Red Bull Holden Racing Team.

Following today's on-track sessions fans will enjoy a performance by The Veronicas and Delta Goodrem, while tomorrow night, Aussie Rock legends, Cold Chisel, will perform in front of a packed house of Supercars fans alongside Spiderbait and The Owls.

Every practice, qualifying and race, as well as support categories, from the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 will be broadcast live, ad-break free on Fox Sports 506 across the weekend.

The event will also be broadcast on TEN and TEN HD from 12pm - 6pm AEDT on both Saturday and Sunday. For the full TV Schedule, head to supercars.com/tv-schedule.

Results/News / CBRT WELCOMES BRETT TAYLOR FULL-TIME IN 2018
« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on November 20, 2017, 07:33:19 PM »
CBRT WELCOMES BRETT TAYLOR FULL-TIME IN 2018
 
November 16, 2017. Following a successful 2017 campaign Canada’s Best Racing Team (CBRT) is hard at work preparing for competition in the 2018 NASCAR Pinty’s Series that will again race on ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits across Canada.  In the first of several upcoming team announcements CBRT is pleased to welcome Calgary, Alberta racer Brett Taylor as a full time participant for the upcoming season.
 
This past year Taylor was behind the wheel in a CBRT prepared car for three events and having him back next season was something CBRT General Manager Joey McColm was hoping to achieve.  “From the moment Brett joined our group it was a really good fit,” said McColm.  “He’s a passionate guy and wants to do anything he can to be better and help make the team better.  That’s the kind of person you want on your team.
 
Taylor raced for CBRT in the season opening event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this past year and quickly turned heads with his performance.  In extreme conditions that went from wet to dry and back again, Taylor moved smartly through the field from his 19th starting spot on the grid to finish ninth, his best finish in four series races to that point.  For his efforts Taylor gained the most positions of any driver that day and claimed the Rookie of the Race award.
 
“To come in and achieve that kind of success right away, that’s special,” said McColm.  “We want to do everything we can to help Brett become the Rookie of the Year in 2018”.
 
Joining CBRT on a full time basis to drive the #46 car has Taylor equally excited and looking forward to the 2018 season.  “I’m so excited for the opportunity to race a full season.  I have always watched these guys on TV and proud to race with them.
 
Brett Taylor will race the #46 CBRT machine this season as it has a special meaning to him.  The choice was inspired by the movie “Days of Thunder” that first jolted Taylor’s enthusiasm for NASCAR and has him focused on success for the upcoming season.  “This is my chance to put Alberta on the map in NASCAR,” said the driver.  “I’m hoping through my commitment to the rookie campaign and this series, that I can help bring more awareness to NASCAR in western Canada and what great racing we have at home,” he added.
 
Early in the New Year there will further announcements regarding marketing partners for Brett Taylor and the CBRT group for the upcoming season.  The 2018 NASCAR Pinty’s Series race schedule is expected to be finalized shortly.
 
You can find the most up to date information on the CBRT website www.cbrteams.com and there are openings for interested partners to come on board in time for the new season. The NASCAR Pinty’s Series consists of races on ovals, road and street courses across Canada.
