Double MSR Top 10 on Sunday in Darwin

Both the Bendix Racing and Dabble Racing Chevrolet Camaros finished in the top 10 on Sunday at the Darwin Triple Crown.

A brilliant strategy saw Nick Percat vault from 13th on the grid to fifth at the chequered flag, gaining eight positions.

Cameron Hill made his third Top 10 Shootout appearance of the year where he also jumped a number of positions to qualify sixth on the grid.

Hill made it home in ninth, seeing both cars collect strong results on the final day at Hidden Valley Raceway.

Percat is now a fantastic 4th in the Drivers’ Championship, while Hill moved up to a solid 16th with a decent haul of points.

MSR is sixth in Teams’ Championship ahead of the next event in Townsville.


Nick Percat – Driver of #10:

“It’s been a really good weekend for the whole MSR team. The Bendix car came home in fifth position today having come from 13th — we had really good car speed in the race but the real credit is to the team in the pits. The improvement this year has been unbelievable, they absolutely nailed the pit stops today so I couldn’t be more proud of the work they’re doing back at the shop. Cam was in the top 10 too so it was a really good day for the whole of Matt Stone Racing. Can’t wait to head to Townsville now and keep this form rolling.”
Cameron Hill – Driver of #4:

“All wrapped up here in Darwin. A really good Sunday for the MSR team; on the Car #4 side we qualified in the top 10 and got the run in the shootout. Then in the race it was a top 10 result for me in ninth and Nick obviously moved up to fifth which was awesome. We had fast cars as soon as we rolled out of the truck, the team executed faultlessly all weekend, so just have to thank them for all the hard work. It’s all making sense — some more good results are obviously coming our way. It’s funny how you can be chasing the top 10 and then all of a sudden you’re in the top 10 and you’re saying ‘should have been top five’. Can’t wait for the next one.”
