BRT’s added incentive to spark season

AFTER enduring a shocker in its 100th Supercars Championship race, the Blanchard Racing Team is searching high and low for solutions.

And it has extra motivation to do so fast, in a bid to allow rookie Aaron Love to put in a good showing at his home race next up in Western Australia.

BRT struggled at the Bathurst 500 but was better at Albert Park, where James Courtney recorded an eighth-place finish and Love navigated chaos to take 12th in the event finale.

Both drivers were semi-competitive in the wet at Taupō but suffered once the weather cleared on Sunday.

The result was 22nd and 23rd in the Ford team’s milestone start.

“A fair struggle this weekend, to say the least. It wasn’t great,” said BRT boss Tim Blanchard.

“We’ve got a lot of homework to do after Taupō. We’re looking at everything to improve the speed of the cars.

“It’s important that we do better for Aaron Love in Perth, because it’s his home race.”

Love, 22, has responded well to criticism of his crash-littered solo debut, keeping out of trouble ever since.

The Perth product’s chance to steer his #3 CoolDrive Mustang at Wanneroo Raceway will come in Round 4 of the season on May 17-19.
