TICKFORD RACING – eSERIES ROUND 4 REPORT
29 April, 2020
Cameron Waters (No. 6 Monster Energy Ford Mustang) has won Round 4 of the BP Supercars All-Stars eSeries on Wednesday night. With finishes of fifth, second, 10th, and fifth across races at Montreal and Watkins Glen, Waters’ overall tally for the evening earned him the round win. For his win, Supercars sponsor ArmorAll will donate $1000 to Waters’ nominated charity, Camp Quality, an Australian-based charity that supports children living with cancer and their families. Waters remains second in the eSeries championship, just 83 points off championship leader Scott McLaughlin.
Posting his best qualifying and race results of the eSeries to date, Lee Holdsworth (No. 5 Truck Assist Ford Mustang) qualified and finished fourth in Race 13 at Watkins Glen, and also scored a top ten in Race 11 after climbing 14 positions from his 24th starting spot. Holdsworth exits the round 14th in the championship.
Will Davison (No. 23 Milwaukee Racing Ford Mustang) started his evening well, qualifying sixth and finishing fourth in Race 11, but struggled in the remaining races.
Jack Le Brocq’s (No. 55 Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang) fortunes appeared to be taking a turn for the better after a 12th place finish in Race 11, but the 27-year old was also collected in incidents across the remaining races, leaving Le Brocq little more than laughs on an otherwise frustrating night.
The BP Supercars All-Stars eSeries continues its world tour next week with a visit to two of Europe’s most prestigious circuits: Germany’s Nurburgring and Belgium’s Spa-Franchorchamps. Live coverage of Round 5 begins at 6:00 p.m. AEST on Fox Sports, Kayo, and Sky Sports. Additional live coverage on Supercars’ digital channels begins at 7:00, and tape delayed broadcasts can be view on Ten Play and Ten Bold on Saturday.

“We had a couple of good races tonight, to go from 24th to 10th in the first race was a great start, and the third race I ran in the top five all race, which shows how helpful qualifying up front can be. Unfortunately it just ended sourly for us, I was parked down the back with the reverse grid and couldn’t get further up in the end. A tough way to finish the night, but I’m happy to get my first top five of the eSeries, it shows we’re making progress in the Truck Assist Ford Mustang. Hopefully we can keep that up next week back in Europe.”

“It’s great to win the round tonight, and even better that we get to donate a thousand dollars to Camp Quality because of it. Tonight was good fun, I had some good battles, missed a few big crashes, and clawed some points back on Scotty (McLaughlin) in the championship which is good. There’s plenty of racing still to go so hopefully we can close the gap a little more next week.”

“Another eventful evening on the sim! The glasses didn’t help me too much in avoiding crashes tonight, but hey we had a lot fun doing it and had plenty of laughs while we were at it. Just glad I don’t have to hand the Supercheap Auto Mustang back to the mechanics after all that, they wouldn’t be happy with me!”

Race 11: 6th | 4th
Race 12: 26th | 18th
Race 13: 20th | 27th

“Tonight started off all right, starting sixth and finishing fourth in the first race, then it all pretty much fell apart. The Milwaukee car must have had magnets on it because I kept getting run into, even when I started up front things wouldn’t go right! But we had some fun tonight, I let Hector, one of our French bulldogs, have a steer during the expression session, which hopefully gave the fans a laugh, that’s what it’s all about. But yeah, hopefully next week’s a bit nicer to us in the results.”
Tim Edwards, Team Principal
“It’s never boring, is it? First off, it’s great to see Cam take the round win and have a donation in his name to Camp Quality. Lee and Will had some good races tonight, but also bad luck, and Jack’s had nothing but bad luck of late, we’ll have to look into what mojo we can arrange for him for next week. We had some laughs and had some cheers tonight, hopefully the fans found it just as entertaining.”
