Ash Walsh ready for Townsville V8 Supercar street fight

Dunlop Series V8 Supercar driver Ash Walsh heads to Round 3 of the series ready to do battle on the tough Townsville street circuit this weekend. With a striking new livery on the #87 simPRO Falcon, Walsh completed a very successful test day last Friday and once again the Matt Stone Racing team made gains in the set up and outright speed of the Falcon.

To cap a big week for Walsh, major sponsor simPRO have launched a novel promotion culminating in the winner joining simPRO Racing, Walsh and the Matt Stone Team at Bathurst in October. Under the banner ‘Are you the face of simPRO?’ contestants are directed to provide a video explaining why they should be chosen as the face of simPRO.

Wash was excited about simPRO’s initiative. “A big week for us! The promotion is a great concept, and I’m really pleased the guys at simPRO are using the sponsorship so well” Walsh commented. “To top it off we tested some new engineering components in the car and feel we really made some ground. I think the whole MSR team are really pumped for Townsville this weekend”

Round 3 of the 2012 Dunlop Series will be run over three races this weekend. Ash Walsh currently sits in 5th place in the championship.
