Melbourne Supersprint
Published March, 2024

The March 21-24 event, part of the Australian Grand Prix, will feature the only Supercars races of 2024 to have no pit stops, presenting a unique challenge at what is already a challenging circuit for the category’s Camaros and Mustangs.

Jimmy Golding in the #31 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaro will be taking part in his fourth run at this event and his second with the PremiAir Nulon Racing team. After a strong start to the 2024 season yielded two Top Ten Shootout performances (P6 and P4) and a top five race finish on Sunday, Golding is hoping to build on that momentum this weekend.

This event is certainly very different to all of our other events,” Golding reflects.

It allows us to have multiple opportunities with four qualifying sessions and four races in the one weekend, and of course supporting Formula One at one of the biggest sporting events in Australia is pretty cool."

At the same time, it is very challenging because it is a fast track with a lot of big and flowing corners which isn’t really what our cars are designed for, but that just means it is very rewarding when you get every element right to complete a good lap.

For Tim Slade in the #23 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaro, it will be his fifth appearance at the Melbourne Super Sprint and his second for PremiAir Nulon Racing. He will be hoping to improve his best Albert Park qualifying and finishing position of third (both for race three of the 2019 event).

The biggest challenge will be qualifying as the races are short and there aren’t any pit stops, which eliminates any strategising your way forwards in the race if you don’t maximise qualifying,” said Slade, who has secured four top five finishes and 12 top ten finishes at the event previously."

Nulon has made a splash at Sea World on the Gold Coast, unveiling the new liveries for the #23 and #31 Camaros in picturesque surroundings ahead of the start of the 2024 Supercars Championship season. 

Supercars commentator, Benny Bishop, MC’ed the launch, after which the PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaros remained on-site – with park visitors taking the opportunity to check out these striking racing machines as part of their Sea World fun across the rest of the day. 

The new-look liveries will ensure the #23 and #31 stand out when the Supercars Championship gets underway at the Bathurst 500 later this month and across the rest of the 2024 season, while proudly displaying the branding of co-naming rights partners Nulon and PremiAir Racing. 

Sea World on the Gold Coast has provided a terrific location for us to unveil the bold new liveries. We can’t thank them enough for partnering with us as we launch our 2024 season today,” PremiAir Nulon Racing Team Boss, Peter Xiberras, said. 

Nulon Products Australia Channel Marketing Manager, Tom Murray, said he was excited about the coming season and the team prospects for 2024.

"We’ve had a great launch today at Seaworld and can’t wait to see the pace of the cars at Bathurst next week. The team have made some key hires in the engineering department and doubled down on efforts to fine-tune the cars and strategy, so we’re hopeful of a strong first showing at Bathurst.” Murray said. 

The first Supercars event of 2024 for PremiAir Nulon Racing and the rest of the Supercars field will be held at the season-opening Bathurst 500 across February 23-25 at the legendary Mount Panorama.

Nulon join forces with Team 18
Published February, 2024

Nulon has announced a new partnership with Team 18, joining forces with David Reynolds and the TRADIE beer Racing Chevrolet Camaro for the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship.

Linking two iconic Australian brands under one umbrella. Nulon is a major supporter of the Australian motorsport scene from grassroots to professional competition and returned to Team 18 after supporting them between 2020 and 2022. During this time, Nulon was the primary backer for seven rounds of the 2022 season on Scott Pye’s Holden ZB Commodore.

Team Owner Charlie Schwerkolt: "We are thrilled to welcome Nulon back to the Team 18 family for the 2024 Supercars season. Nulon has long supported Australian motorsport, and their commitment to delivering the best possible product aligns perfectly with our team's goals."
“This partnership represents a reunion of our brands, and we are getting set for exciting times ahead with David Reynolds joining the stable this year. We look forward to a successful season together on and off the track."

David Reynolds: “It’s exciting to team up with Nulon and be part of their renewed partnership with Team 18 for the 2024 season. Nulon's commitment to pushing the boundaries for quality and performance is something I can personally relate to on the track. The new season is edging closer, and I can’t wait to head to Bathurst for Round 1 in a few weeks' time.”

Nulon welcomes David Reynolds to our motorsport family
Published February, 2024

Nulon has partnered with a living legend of Supercars, David Reynolds, from Tradie Beer Racing for the 2024 Supercar Season.

Dave started his racing career in 2003 in the Australian Formula Ford Championship, winning two national titles before graduating from opener wheelers into the Carrera Cup.

The first taste of tin-top racing saw him battle some big names in Australian Motorsport, like Alex Davison and Craig Baird. It was a hellfire introduction to touring car racing that set him up for a successful supercar career.

In 2009, Dave found his home in the Australian Supercar Championship, the ideal environment for the larrikin of Australian Motorsport. His first win came in 2013 on the streets of Gold Coast. From there, Dave has recorded 42 podiums and eight race wins, including the famous 2017 Bathurst 1000.

Dave was also awarded the Barry Sheene award two years in a row, in 2017 & 2018, following his Bathurst victory, voted best and fairest by the motorsport media—a deserved honour for a great racing season.

The most recent reward for all the hard work came at the same track; he claimed his first victory as he snagged the top step at the 2023 Gold Coast 500 event for Grove Racing with a now infamous "Fire extinguisher" celebration.

With such a strong heritage in Australian Motorsport, Nulon is very proud to welcome David Reynolds into our Motorsport program; we can't wait to work with Dave on and off the track throughout the year, giving our fans some fun and exciting content as we follow him throughout the 2024 supercar season.

Heating up at Surfers Paradise

The Gold Coast 500 will be held just 20 minutes away from our race headquarters on the Gold Coast.

The #23 and #31 Nulon Racing Camaros come to the event fresh from a top ten finish at the Bathurst 1000 and ready for the final run towards the end of what has been an action-packed 2023 Supercars season.

Nulon Racing Team Principal, Stephen Robertson, said the team was looking forward to tackling the challenging yet rewarding street circuit.  

“As we near the pointy end of the 2023 season, we continue to work hard to put together the best package we can while developing the best team we can,” Roberston said. 

Driver of the #23 Nulon Racing Camaro, Tim Slade, already has two surfboard trophies at home after claiming third positions at the 2014 and 2017 Gold Coast events.

“The Surfers Paradise street circuit is truly exciting. The Beach Chicane in particular is quite exhilarating – it is fast, and the car is up on two wheels for a fair amount of time after hitting the kerbs each side. I think it is one of the best spots to spectate of any of the tracks we go to for that reason,” Slade said.  

And, after a strong performance at the Bathurst 1000, Golding is feeling confident heading to the technical street circuit at the Gold Coast.  

“We had a good weekend at the Mountain but straight away have switched our focus to the unique challenges of the concrete jungle that is racing in Surfers Paradise,” Golding said.

The Great Race Celebrates 60 Years

The countdown to the start of action for the Bathurst 1000 is now in its final stages, and the team at Nulon Racing is thrilled to be part of this historic milestone, which takes place on Sunday, 8 October on Mount Panorma in Bathurst NSW.

“The Nulon Racing Transporter arrived here in Bathurst on Monday with some of our crew on-board, with the rest of the team arriving on Tuesday and I can tell you, there is just something really special about Bathurst’s welcoming atmosphere that is really deeply meaningful for everyone up and down this pit lane,” Team Manager, Stephen Robertson said.

For the second endurance race of 2023, our drivers, Jimmy Golding and Dylan O’Keeffe, will continue to share the driving duties in the #31 Nulon Racing Camaro and Tim Slade with Jonathon Webb in the #21 Nulon Racing Camaro.

Strategy key to success at Sydney SuperNight

One of the year's most exciting races is just around the corner! Sydney SuperNight is on this weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park with an action-packed 3 days of racing, starting Friday 28th – 30th July. 

Race strategy will play a significant role in collecting valuable championship points this weekend as the Nulon Racing drivers threaten the top ten in the Repco Supercars Championship.
"There is certainly going to be no shortage of action for Nulon Racing at Sydney Motorsport Park," Team Owner, Peter Xiberras, said. 

"On Saturday, in particular, there are going to be many strategy games going on – we can run the entire length on one-stop as far as fuel goes, but whether that is the right way to go about it will be the question, given we will be running on the soft compound tyres for the entirety of the weekend, on what is historically a high-deg track.

"I expect that we will see a lot of different strategies playing out, which should make for some very interesting racing. And racing under lights at Sydney Motorsport Park is always a spectacle!"

lding and Slade will also be dropping into the Nulon Racing merchandise stand in Merchandise Alley across the weekend, where race fans can meet the drivers and grab a new-style Nulon Racing T-shirt, winter gear, and more.

Nulon Racing is heating up in Townsville for twin 250KM races

Supercar drivers James Golding and Tim Slade are flying the Nulon Racing flag in Tropical North QLD for the sixth round of the 2023 Supercars Championship. Both drivers are flirting with the top 10 in the driver's championship, so every point from here on in will be valuable as we enter the second half of the season.

The Famous Reid Park circuit combines a permanent race track and local Townsville streets. Combine this with a hot and humid weather forecast, and the result will be harsh conditions for drivers and pit crew alike.
The Nulon Racing mechanics are more focused than ever on rolling out fast cars for the boys. With this type of circuit and length of race, car setup and servicing are critical in achieving a result. These races can be won and lost in the pit lane.

All but one of the events held so far this season have been run under a sprint-race format. The Townsville's 2.86km Circuit will see the return of twin 250k races for the first time this year since the season-opening Newcastle 500.
Both outings will feature a compulsory pit stop after lap five, with each entry required to take on 100L of fuel and conduct a tyre change.
For Golding, the event is extra special because it is where he made his debut for Premiair Racing following a mid-season call-up in 2022.

"The Townsville 500 is a special event for me. Last year was my debut with the team, and while it was certainly difficult, it was really enjoyable to return to Supercars full-time at Townsville. It was the beginning of a new chapter in my career and something I will always cherish," Golding said.

"We have learnt a lot since then and improved a lot. Of course, we have new cars with Gen 3 this time, so I am excited to get back to Reid Park and see what we can do in the Nulon Racing Camaro."

Nulon Racing proudly unveils indigenous liveries.

With thanks to respected Indigenous craftsman William Hewitt, Nulon Racing is proud to unveil its striking liveries for the upcoming Darwin Triple Crown Supercars Indigenous round.

The #31 and #23 Nulon Racing Camaros will carry matching liveries for the Darwin event across June 16-18 at Hidden Valley Raceway. The liveries have been designed by Aboriginal Indigenous Australian William Hewitt, who was born in Larrakia Country (Darwin, NT) and is part of the Wadjigan/Yawuru/Karajarri /Bard clan. 

Hewitt, also known as Chulichi, Great Warrior, and Hunter, is a respected artist in contemporary arts, graphic and digital design, and traditional Aboriginal artifacts.

Inspired by the elements of nature and the essence of Indigenous traditions, Hewitt's design captures the spirit and energy of the land. 

The design of the livery features vivid shades of red that represent the scorching sun, while the flowing lines depict the energy radiating from the dusty earth. White accents signify heat waves and clouds moved by the unique humidity of the area.

The black vibrations pay respect to Australia's Indigenous peoples' rich cultural heritage and serve as a tribute to the Indigenous round in 2023. Hewitt expressed his gratitude for the chance to combine her artistic expression with the world of motorsports.

"This collaboration showcases the beauty and resilience of IndigenoNulon Racing in Darwin has a busy schedule from June 16-18. It includes the next Supercars championship round, the Darwin Triple 1 Crown, and the final round of the Burson Auto Parts Top Fuel Championships.us culture while adding a vibrant touch to the Nulon Racing Supercars.
"I hope this design sparks conversations and inspires people to learn more about our rich heritage."

 Twin Top Tens for Nulon Racing in Tasmania!

Despite freezing temperatures, Nulon Racing performed impressively on Tasmania's challenging Symmons Plains circuit. They achieved a series of top-10 finishes in qualifying and the races, securing valuable points and solidifying their position in the Repco Supercars Championship. Unfortunately, they narrowly missed a chance at a podium finish in the final race due to a mechanical issue on Tim Slade's car.

While the weekend was one of ups and downs, Nulon Racing Team Principal Matt Cook said there were plenty of positives to focus on.

"Overall, we had a good weekend. The cars were consistently quick, which was very pleasing, they showed a lot of pace, and our pit stops were excellent, but we had a bit of up and down luck as the weekend pressed on," Cook said.

"We had a weird engine problem with Tim's car in the last race, and we are not quite sure what the problem is. We will have to diagnose that when we return to the factory, but it is extraordinary – these are new cars and new engines, and this is the first time we have seen something like this. I was distraught for Tim; the guys he was battling with were in fourth, fifth and sixth position at the end, so we should have been around there, so I am gutted for him.

Nulon Racing flying high after opening round.

The Newcastle 500 has seen Nulon Racing end the opening round of the 2023 Supercars Championship on a high, with both cars firmly inside the top 10, including mega Shootout laps to secure grid positions of 3rd place for Jimmy and 5th place for Slade, rewarding the entire team for all the hard work under hot and sticky conditions.

With great race pace and good pit stops for both entries across the duration of the afternoon, Golding was able to cross the line in P4 after having been as high as P3 in the final stages, while Slade finished his race in P9.

After the difficulties of Saturday, Nulon Racing Team Principal Matt Cook was exceptionally pleased with the result. “It was a super Sunday for us, that is for sure,” Cook said.

“We had another great outing in qualifying and then the Shootout, with both cars well in the top ten and Jimmy even in the top three in qualifying and the Shootout, while Tim put in a really solid job for P5 and P6 in what were again really competitive sessions.

“To have both cars in the top ten all day today was fantastic, and I can’t thank the team enough for their efforts – all of the boys and girls did a fantastic job. Now, we move onto the next one!” he smiled.
