WSM Team owner Craig Thompson said “Charlotte is doing good for her first run, we just want her to learn the car characteristic’s before heading to Bathurst this weekend”.
Ponyting and Woods will be joined once again by Ben Walsh in another WSM SuperUte, Walsh had a podium finish in the last round at Sandown Raceway, “The pace in the final race was hectic. I stayed in second place at the start but had to fight off Woodsy for a couple of laps. I started catching the leader slowly, about 1 tenth every lap but very very consistently” said Walsh on Facebook.
The ECB SuperUtes Series get two practice sessions on Thursday, their qualifying is first up on Friday morning at 7.25am with Race One later in the day and followed by two more races on Saturday.
