Scott Taylor Motorsport set for busy weekend in Townsville

Scott Taylor Motorsport will have a strong presence at this weekend’s NTI Townsville 500 with entries across multiple support categories in the highly anticipated Repco Supercars Championship event.

The two drivers flying the Scott Taylor Motorsport flag in Far North Queensland will be team owner Scott Taylor in the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series, and rising star Nash Morris in the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia.

With Aussie Racing Cars entering its third round of the season, this weekend will be just Taylor’s third appearance in the past 12 months, having previously competed in the series at Queensland Raceway in April and Townsville late last year.

Although Taylor completed just one of the three races in Ipswich earlier this year, the veteran enjoyed a more consistent outing at Reid Park last year with four finishes from four races.

“We are heading back to Townsville because I love racing there. It’s such a fantastic circuit and such a fantastic place to visit,” said Taylor.

“Along with Darwin and Adelaide, Townsville is a real community type race event where you get the die-hards there which is fantastic.

“Obviously Nash is getting the chance to top up his Carrera Cup attributes by racing in the Sprint Challenge, and I get to race with my mate Paul Morris in Aussie Racing Cars.

“With a field of 40, it should be a ton of fun but massive - competitors going five-wide around corners will be exciting.

“I like the category - it’s a super community and that’s why I have supported Aussie Racing Cars for many years.”

Both drivers will have busy weekends in their respective categories, with Taylor to tackle four races in the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series schedule, while Morris will contest three outings, including the Jim Richards Endurance race on Sunday morning.

The NTI Townsville 500 will take place at Reid Park in Townsville on July 5-7.
