Sydney based British racer, Cam Walton is looking forward to making his first trip up to Townsville for the second round of the Australian Toyota 86 Racing Series in July.
Building on a successful opening round of the series at Phillip Island where he scored three top-five finishes, Walton is excited by the challenge of racing on a street circuit for the for the first time.
"I'm really looking forward to getting up to Townsville next week. It'll be great to explore new parts of Australia I've not visited yet. Actually, I've never been north of the Gold Coast before." said Walton.
"It looks like it'll be a great event with the warmer winter weather, but most of all I'm excited to get back out on track for my first ever street circuit race and continue to build our momentum from an awesome debut round at Phillip Island back in April."
Walton will enjoy additional support heading up to Townsville, with fresh new backing from UK based Flying Vinyl, who are looking to build their international customer based in Australia.
Flying Vinyl is a subscription-based music service designed to make discovering the best new alternative music intimate and personal by delivering a monthly collectors box of five exclusive 7" vinyl records from the best up-and-coming indie, alternative and rock artists, paired with regular art prints and lyric sheets.
"Bringing Flying Vinyl on board is a massive boost for us, helping with the big trek from Sydney and the car developments we've been working on since the last round," said Walton, who also holds a Masters Degree in Motorsport Engineering.
"On top of that, it'll be great inspiration for our race weekend playlist... Anyone at Phillip Island would've heard the tunes pumping out our garage and know music is an important part of the way we go racing."
"Having been lucky enough to see a couple Flying Vinyl featured bands while working at Glastonbury Festival the past 2 years, I know they keep their finger on the pulse and press only the best new music."
Walton currently sits fifth in the Toyota 86 Racing Series standings, and the next round will be held in Townsville on July 6-8.
Cam would like to thank all his supporters for their continued assistance, including:
