Holden and Volkswagen top times in practice at The Bend

Andre Heimgartner and Aaron Cameron have topped the two carsales TCR Australia Series at The Bend Motorsport Park in Tailem Bend, South Australia today.

Heimgartner took his Holden Astra to the fastest lap in Practice 1, dipping under the record mark set during the category’s first visit to the circuit back in July. 

The Kelly Racing driver Heimgartner lapped his Astra in 1m57.3180s seconds to edge out Tony D’Alberto in a Honda Civic Type R.

In the second session, Volkswagen young star Aaron Cameron went faster again with a 1m56.7515s in his Volkswagen Golf GTi, 0.28 seconds quicker than Chris Pither in a Renault Megane RS and 0.38 better than Dylan O’Keefe in an Alfa Romeo Giulietta.

“The car is awesome. We didn’t expect it to this fast at the start of the day, especially considering the used tyres that we had to run on," said Aaron Cameron.

“I was having a really big dip through over the back through the triple right hander, hoping she stays on track, and I think that is where I found some time.

“I’m in contention for second in the title. Myself and Tony D’Alberto and Dylan O’Keeffe are all close, we know what’s at stake, so hopefully I can stay in front of them and move up to third or even second."

“We've had our challenges with this car, but thankfully, we seem to be back in form," said Chris Pither.

“We are near the pointy end, which is nice, and that’s kind of where we were last time we were here at The Bend. Since then, we’ve had a few technical issues, but the GRM guys have put a lot of effort in between Sandown and now and it seems like there’s a reward for that.

“This is only practice, so we’ll see how we go tomorrow and hopefully we can stay up the front.”
