Cam Walton enjoyed a competitive top ten weekend in what was his street circuit debut in Townsville.
The second round of the Toyota 86 Racing Series presented a unique challenge for the British driver, who had never raced on a temporary street circuit before. Walton revelled in the opportunity to end the weekend with three top ten finishes in the competitive 33 car field.
It was not all smooth sailing for Sydney based racer, however. Walton's Toyota 86 race car and equipment were significantly damaged during the 2100km transit to Townsville, leaving his small team on the back foot from the get-go.
"The guys did an incredible job all weekend, and I feel so grateful for the unfaltering team attitude which was spot on," Walton said after the weekend.
"My preparation was compromised far less than it would have been with Luke, Terry and Glen taking on some of my usual responsibilities on top of their own on an already busy meeting."
