WATERS MAKES SUPERSTART TO 2017 IN ADELAIDE
Monster Energy Racing has kick started the 2017 Supercars Championship in style with Cam Waters upping his pace to finish fourth in the opening round at Adelaide’s street circuit.
The kid put in the hard yards in the off season, bulking up his fitness regime and heading to Europe for some intensive driver training to hone his skills for his second season behind the wheel of the #6 Monster Energy Ford.
“I’m really stoked to get in the top 10. That was our goal for the race so to do that and finish fourth in race 1 and then eighth in race 2 is really cool.” Waters said.
“I’m really pumped for the Monster Energy Racing team that we made both top-10 qualifying shootouts as well.
“We had legit speed at this event, no questions asked, so I can’t wait for the next race weekend!”
In conjunction with launching the meanest looking livery in pitlane earlier in the week, Monster Energy Racing also announced Cam’s co-driver for this year’s Supercars Endurance Cup.
Kiwi ace and international racer Richie Stanaway will join Cam this year and the word around the paddock is the pair will be ones to watch at the biggest race of them all, the Bathurst 1000 in October.
Fans in the hundreds of thousands flooded into the event, partying up a storm at the Clipsal 500 as the Supercars Championship launched with a bang.
The Monster Energy Racing crew now sets its sights on the next challenge when teams head to Albert Park in Melbourne to race on the same schedule as the opening round of the Formula 1 World Championship, March 23-26.
