Treseder hopes to improve form
MOTORSPORT: Looking after the tyres in the Aussie Racing Cars in Perth will be the difference between winning and losing this weekend, according to Bundaberg's Kel Treseder.
Starting today, the KKP Motorsport driver will compete at Barbagello Raceway in the next round series.
And he is wary of what the circuit can do despite not racing at the track before.
"From what I've heard the surface is really abrasive to tyres,” he said.
"We need to make sure we look after our tyres.”
Treseder hopes by looking after the rubber he can continue his recent good form in the series.
The 32-year-old finished third for the round in wet conditions in Tasmania, which moved him to fifth in the standings after a poor opening round in Adelaide.
"The car had to be repaired significantly from Tasmania,” he revealed.
"We hope it is dry in Perth and we can avoid the weather from the last round.
"We're aiming to get to the pointy end and if we're in a position for victory then we'll push for the wins.”
It is also a big weekend for Treseder with his sponsors.
"We have The Kart Centre on the side of the car and Newland precision engineering which are both based in Perth,” he said.
"It's our home sponsors' race so we're looking forward to racing.”
Treseder will be in action at 11.30am.
