ADAM BRESSINGTON’s switch from an American GM muscle car to an Aussie counterpart has been a
rewarding one with him debuting a Holden Monaro for an eight, third and seventh in the three races of the first round of the Auto Barn Touring Car Masters at Sydney Motorsport Park last weekend.
The deal to run the car was a last minute negotiation and the preparation the car was completed a day before the round which was the headline support act to the Top Gear Festival. In front of big crowds over two days, Bressington and the Bandit Racing Holden Monaro were star performers along with several of the historic tourers, particularly in the second race where the combination were the race leaders for a couple of laps.
“Considering it was our first time out in the car and I haven’t raced for five months, I thought we put in an accomplished effort. John “Barrell” Pachos and his Hi-Tech Motorsport team did wonders getting the car ready . . . and it didn’t miss a beat all weekend,” said Bressington.
“I couldn’t have asked for more from these guys,” the 46-year-old added. “We were actually quicker than some of the cars that finished ahead of us, but it was mainly in places where we could do little about it, let alone get past.
“Not saying we could have matched it with Bowie (race winner John Bowe) but once we get really sorted and utilise our entire tyre allotment, I think we will be in line for a podium at the end of one of the rounds in the very near future,” he concluded. In race one he was third home of the Australian-sourced muscle cars, second in race two in local stakes before another third.
