Nissan Altimas (Teanas) pulling strong in V8 Supercar championship
Nissan Motorsport’s James Moffat has finished in seventh place during Race 9 of the V8 Supercars Championship last weekend. Moffat, debuting new major support from Toshiba in partnership with Intel Security, qualified 10th and used smart race strategy to move up to7th at the end of the 200km race.
The result marks Moffat’s best result for the year after a difficult start to his 2015 campaign. He now sits 15th in the championship chase. Michael Caruso also had a strong day, coming home in 10th place in his NISMO Nissan Altima V8. Todd Kelly qualified 18th before making good gains, finishing in 13th place.
Jack Daniel’s Nissan driver Rick Kelly will look back on this race as the one that got away. Having finished inside the top 10 in both of Saturday’s races, Kelly was on target for a potential podium today, only to suffer from a long pit stop that dropped him down a lap. He finished 20th but has maintained 10th overall.
The next round of the V8 Supercars Championship will be held at Winton Motor Raceway in two weeks.
