Team CoolDrive Ipswich SuperSprint Supercars Preview

26 Jul, 2019

The Supercars are back in the sunshine state for the second time this month, as they gear up to take on the Ipswich SuperSprint at Queensland Raceway.

In case you missed it, the CoolDrive co-driver announcement was made last week, with the exciting news that Dean Canto will be joining Macauley Jones for 2019 Pirtek Endurance Cup. Dean brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team, as this year marks his 21st appearance at the great race – Bathurst. He has a podium and plenty of top ten finishes here already, so we’re looking forward to seeing what he and Macauley can achieve over the coming months.

Below are the on-track times for Macauley Jones at the Ipswich SuperSprint event and your local TV times can be found here - https://www.supercars.com/tv-schedule/
