Fresh from returning from a chilly week up in the Thredbo snowfields, Cam Waters will head for

the warmth of Darwin this weekend to contest two back-back nights of speedway racing. Waters

will drive his Chief Racing Maxim on Friday night in Round 11 of the Northline Speedway titles,

before backing up on Saturday night for the Northern Territory State Championships, which is

expected to attract a field of more than 50 Sprint Cars.

With fresh, major backing from Mildura-based company G1 Logistics, Waters will return to

Northline on August 26 and 27 for the opening two rounds of the popular ‘Chariots of Thunder’

title, before taking in Alice Spring’s ‘Dance in the Desert' event at Arunga Park Speedway on

August 30.

Sandwiched in between his pair of Darwin forays is the ‘Penrite Oil Sandown SuperSprint’, and

despite Waters' busy upcoming schedule, he feels confident the Sprint Car program will do

nothing to impact on his recent strong Supercars form, which sees him currently sitting in second

position behind championship leader Shane van Gisbergen.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the Chief Racing #6 at Northline

this weekend and also some more warmer weather, and hope my recent Supercars form at

Hidden Valley (where Waters recorded a win and a second place) can carry over to some

successful running on the clay.

“We’re pretty much using the first two events as shakedown meetings in anticipation of giving the

first ‘Chariots of Thunder’ weekend a real crack, and it’s great to have a new major partner in G1

Logistics on board too, and with them being Mildura-based it gives the whole Chief Racing

program a nice feel to it.

I’ll certainly be in for a busy few weeks, but the opportunity to get back behind the wheel of the

Sprint Car, and at one of the country's biggest events, was impossible to knock back and I really

have to thank Colin McQuinn and the team for the enormous effort they have put into making this
