VIDEO | Scott McLaughlin Ready For V8 Supercars Gold Coast 600

MyDrive | Volvo Polestar Racing – Scott McLaughlin heads to the Gold Coast 600 race this weekend seeking redemption after the Bathurst 1000 race where he lost a strong position after a wall visit.
”Gold Coast is one of my favourite events, it is really demanding and hard for the cars. Coming off some great speed at Bathurst, I am looking forward to seek redemption and making up to my team after the mistake I made at Bathurst,” said McLaughlin.

This year features the 20th anniversary of V8 Supercars on the Gold Coast, a demanding street circuit held in Surfers Paradise, Australia.
”I have looked at onboard footage from the track and it looks unbelievable. It is going to be awesome to learn this track and my aim is to get a top ten finish this weekend,” said Robert Dahlgren.

Co-driver Alexandre Prémat put in a solid effort in the Bathurst 1000 race two weeks ago and hopes to continue on the strong speed together with McLaughlin this weekend.
”I am confident of a strong result this weekend, especially after the speed we showed at Bathurst,” said Prémat.

Dahlgren’s co-driver Greg Ritter is just as teammates McLaughlin and Prémat hoping to build on the positive parts from the previous races this weekend.
”We made a lot of progress at Bathurst with the car and I am hoping that we can capitalise on that this weekend,” said Ritter.
