Third in the standings within reach for Brett Holdsworth

Brett Holdsworth is predicting a wild final weekend of Turtle Wax Trans Am Series at Sandown Raceway this weekend.

Third in the standings, Holdsworth has been impressive this season as he sits 85-points in arrears of Garry Rogers Motorsport’s Owen Kelly, but is on target to finish on the podium at season’s end.

Holdsworth has finished every race this year and only failed to achieve a top 10 finish once, which came at Queensland Raceway. His season was highlighted at Sydney Motorsport Park with a podium, but Holdsworth realises the challenge isn’t over just yet.

“Our plan for this year has come together and we’re in a great position, it’s just a case of closing it out now,” said Holdsworth.

“We’d need to get a bit fortunate to climb over Nathan (Herne) and Owen (Kelly) for the top two spots but we’ve got Kyle (Gurton) breathing down our necks so we certainly can’t be resting on our laurels.

“It’s going to be a crazy weekend I feel, it looks like some wet racing on the cards and these cars are an absolute handful in slippery conditions. I’ll take a look through the archives and dig up some wet footage to study, I doubt it’ll be too hard to find wet Sandown footage!

“We had a damp qualifying last round and we didn’t nail it, but that’s actually going to help us this weekend. We know exactly what’s needed once the conditions turn.

“In terms of what we need to be competitive, it’s all about the kerbs. There’s no other permanent circuit in the country where you smash the kerbs as hard as we do in Sandown so you need to have a setup that handles them well.

“My vision for this round is to close it out with some podiums across the weekend.”
