Sufers Paradise is one of the places on earth always linked with pleasure: sun, beach, girls, waves and beer, that’s what the small town at Australia’s Gold Coast is best known for. But every October, motorsport is coming into town: The V8 Supercars make a stop in Surfers Paradise with the Gold Coast 600.
This year from October 19th to 21st, Nick will make his debut in a V8 Supercars and his proud to announce that he will race for Ford Performance Racing (FPR
) in Down Under: “I am very excited to be racing at the Gold Coast 600 this year”, Nick said.” V8 Supercars is a category I am hearing a lot about from friends in Europe who have driven on the Gold Coast and they all say very positive things. The cars are very unique and look like a lot of fun to drive. They are very different to what I have driven for most of my career but I am looking forward to the challenge.”
To be part of Ford Performance Racing is a privilege especially given the season they are having”, he continues. “ I know Prodrive well from my racing in Europe and I know they are very professional and well run. My team-mate in The Bottle-O car David Reynolds is a rising star and I look forward to learning a lot from him when I test for the first time in October. The Gold Coast 600 looks like a fun event and one that now attracts a lot of attention from drivers all around the world. I can’t wait to race there in October.”
