LUBRIMAXX KEEPING MIEDECKE'S 5TH TCM SEASON SMOOTH
Feb 25, 2015
As the hype continues to build for the season opener of Australia’s premier motoring racing categories at this weekend’s Clipsal 500 Adelaide, seasoned racer Andrew Miedecke is swapping the business suit for a race suit once more, preparing to head south to commence his fifth year with the Touring Car Masters, and his 21st anniversary season with Lubrimaxx/Whiteline Transport Racing Chevrolet team owners, Bob and Sharon Middleton.
With his #95 Camaro winning an all-in all-star battle at the 2014 Phillip Island series finale, securing two race wins and the round victory, there’s no doubt that Miedecke is confident in the strength and performance of his muscle machine, saying,
“Our final races last year were full on, and I was pushed against some of the greats in our sport. The car proved to be strong, and I felt really comfortable in the drivers’ seat so to have completed last season on a high, we’re feeling really good about getting into the demands of Adelaide.
“We know our handling was already in a good place, and to make it even better we completed some further suspension development during testing last week.”
With the Masters entrants always looking for the next opportunity to push their muscle further, Miedecke’s Camaro has proven to consistently find pace over the years on the Adelaide Parklands circuit, gaining a second each visit to close in on lap record times, now looking to follow up last season’s concrete canyon race winning feeling as the series returns for the eighth time, explaining,
“Starting the year on this track is always a challenge, for those of us who keep coming back and for the new faces in the series, but it’s because of, and in spite of the challenge that it’s one of my very favourite tracks.”
The Miedecke and Lubrimaxx names are well connected in Australian motor sport, with both father Andrew and son George receiving loyal support from the quality lubricant, cooling, additive and cleaning product manufacturer. For Andrew, this season marks the seventh year of his association with Lubrimaxx, his #95 Chev again to strongly feature the brand as he races around the country.
Miedecke, his Lubrimaxx/Whiteline Transport Racing Camaro, and the Touring Car Masters will hit the track on the first day of the season opening Clipsal 500 Adelaide for two practice sessions, followed by a Friday qualifier and three action-packed races as the strong grid seek the inaugural ‘Adelaide Tourist Trophy’ honours.
