Team CoolDrive is the latest V8 Supercar team to launch their 2016 campaign. The #21 car out of the Brad Jones Racing stable has a new name, a fresh look and a different engineering lineup heading into the season ahead.
Tim Blanchard will be driving a relatively new chassis when he takes over ‘Alice’, the Freightliner Racing chassis which was debuted at Darwin in 2015. The car has proven speed, claiming a number of podium positions in its time with the team.
Wally Storey moves from Jason Bright’s #8 car, to co-engineer the Team CoolDrive Commodore with Tony Woodward, who continues on the #21 car. Combined they will bring vast experience and new ideas to the table, with the goal to get Tim cemented in the V8 Supercar Series.
Blanchard has spent the last couple of days in the Albury workshop, giving him the opportunity to look at car preparation, complete seat fittings and spend time with the team who are busily preparing for the test day on the 22nd of February.
‘Brad and the team have made me feel very welcome. Wally (Storey) is easily one of the most experienced engineers in the field so it’s fantastic that he is stepping up to work on my car. It shows the team are eager to solidify my spot in the championship.’
‘I’m going into the season ahead looking to get consistent results. I know it will take time to get to the front so the expectations are set accordingly. I’m looking forward to the challenge the year ahead will bring.’
‘The cars are competitive, with all of them achieving top ten results and podiums throughout the 2015 season. From the feedback I’ve had, people are excited to see what I can do in the Team CoolDrive car so it’s without a doubt that I’m happy to be on board.’

The Sherrin Rentals Racing team has claimed a host of accolades at the final round of the 2015 Australian Manufacturers Championship *held at Sydney Motorsport Park at the weekend), including the prestigious Australian Production Car Championships.
Alongside the ‘big trophy’ – awarded to Grant Sherrin in the #18 Sherrin Rentals Racing BMW135i – the team also took home the Class B Australian Production Car Championship (Grant Sherrin), the Class B Australian Endurance Championship (Grant Sherrin), the Amchamps Teams Award (Grant and Iain Sherrin), and the Class B victory in today’s Australian 4 Hour race (Grant and Iain Sherrin) for a total trophy haul of 7 between the two drivers.
The victory did not come easy, with a big week of repairs following damage to the #18 at the Winton 300 last week, followed up with two seized turbo wastegates over Friday and Saturday, plus a host of gremlins related to the Winton damage. At the same time, the team was reeling from the fact that the #19 Sherrin Rentals Racing BMW135i suffered a weekend-ending crash during Friday practice with Michael Sherrin at the wheel – whilst the car was unable to be repaired at the track for the Australian 4 Hour, Michael Sherrin emerged relatively unscathed.
What an explosive weekend of racing at the Steel City Race Way on the 3rd and 4th October, with 25 of the toughest Supercharged Outlaw cars, Nitro Funny Car, Jet Cars and Fireworks spectators had a lot to smile about.
Saturday 3rd October was Round 1 of the Club Championship with the weather conditions being quite testing; we still saw some close and competitive racing. Super Sedan saw Tony Miskelly in his AMX Hornet take the win in the Max Cranes Lane 1 running a 5.934 @ 109.07 mph on a 5.92 dial in over Danny Buccella who ran a 6.441 on a 5.91 dial in.
Long-time racer Neville Herreen took the win in Super Street in his immaculate Holden Torana in Hi-Tec Oils Lane 2 running a 7.065 @ 97.16mph on a 7.06 dial in over Michael Bridges who broke out running a 7.292 on a 7.32 dial in. With a great turn out of cars for Modified Eliminator the biggest field the track has seen for some time saw Simon Barlow and Andrew Braithwaite in the finals. Braithwaite giving the win to Barlow after running a -.399 red light, Barlow running a 5.28 @ 94.68 mph on a 4.75 dial in Max Cranes Lane 1, Derryn McGregor a huge supporter and rider from Mildura took the win in Modified Bike on his Honda CBR running a 7.109 @ 102.37 mph on a 6.95 dial in Hi-Tec Oils Lane 2 over local rider Malcolm Price who ran a 6.62 @ 115.51 mph on a 6.50 dial in. While Street Challenge was only a small field local racer Cameron VanDijk took the win in Hi-Tec Oils Lane 2 over Dianne Patrick after she ran a red light. Junior Dragsters was a battle between the girls and boys and Shari Young took the win in Max Cranes Lane 1 after Josh Baker pulled a red light.
With Round 1 done and the weather gods on our side racers returned to the track on Sunday 4th October for the biggest event the Steel City Drag Way has staged hosting the inaugural Steel City Supercharged Shootout.
Sydney’s Molly Taylor has made Australian motorsport history, taking her first outright win in the Australian Rally Championship, and becoming the first woman ever to win a round of the series.
Taylor, 27, and experienced Perth-based co-driver Bill Hayes did battle with time penalties and a fragile car (Renault Clio R3), as well as some serious competition, before taking the win in this weekend’s National Capital Rally in Canberra (May 15-17). The win puts the pair at the top of the championship points tally after the second round of the 2015 series.
“It’s not bad,” Taylor said, smiling broadly. “I have to admit my first outright win does feel pretty good! It’s always good to win, obviously, but I don’t think of myself as being the first woman to win a round. I’m out there to be the first driver home, irrespective of my gender.”
Australian based lubricants company, Hi-Tec Oils, has signed on as naming rights sponsor for the re-birthed Toowoomba Speedway, now Hi-Tec Oils Speedway.
The Charlton based venue is currently undergoing an extensive renovation after coming under the umbrella of the same company that assumed the management of Sydney Speedway last season, and with almost $1million being invested in the upgrade, Hi-Tec Oils CEO, George Gambino, was ardent in partnering with the new management and their vision.
“Hi-Tec Oils held the venue naming rights under the previous management, but when we saw what the new owners were about to invest, we didn’t hesitate to continue our support. It make sense for us, as we’ve recently appointed a new rep in the Toowoomba area and already have a great relationship with the new management through other areas of business.”
