McLeod’s key to maximising stellar pace

AFTER being slapped with costly penalties at each of the first two rounds of the 2023 Dunlop Series, Super3 young gun Cameron McLeod is intent on capitalising on Townsville opportunities.

The Nissan driver enters Race 1 today 27 points behind Image Racing Super3 leader Jobe Stewart, the pair having already duked it out plenty on the racetrack – twice leading to five-second post-race penalties for McLeod.

The teenager again showed blistering pace yesterday in Townsville, upstaging most of the Super2 field to be outright sixth in final practice.

Speaking about his overall season to date, McLeod told V8 Sleuth: “I’m happy with the pace, not necessarily how it’s gone so far.

“I’m really happy with the pace of the car, I’m confident with the car and me and the team I have got behind me, it’s just some of the driver stuff which I need to fix myself, which are the penalties.

“I would have won all of the races by now if it wasn’t for the penalties and I would be in the lead of the championship.

“It’s just the penalties I need to stop getting myself.

“Regardless if it was my fault or his fault, I just need to keep my nose clean.”

McLeod is the grandson of 1987 Bathurst 1000 winner Peter.

Dunlop Series qualifying begins at 9:25am.
