South Australian racer George Gutierrez heads back into uncharted territory with this weekends Toyota 86 Racing Series round at Sandown Raceway.

Aiming to build on positive results at his home event at The Bend Motorsport Park at Tailem Bend just three weeks ago, Gutierrez will tackle the historic track just outside Melbourne for the first time.

“I get to tick off another new track this weekend, as Sandown is a new circuit for myself,” said Gutierrez

“We haven’t even had a chance to test there, so much like the rest of the year, we’ll go into the weekend with a blank canvas.”

“I’m still feeling positive and upbeat coming from a solid result at Tailem Bend. So we aren’t stressing too much.”

Gutierrez currently sits ninth in the Toyota 86 Racing Series standings as it reaches its midway point in Melbourne after season-best sixth place result in the highly competitive 32 car field at the last round.

The young South Australia would also like to welcome a new sponsor, Sunterra who come on board to provide additional support to his small family run team for the Sandown round.

“I’d like to give a warm welcome to Sunterra who have come on board this weekend,” Gutierrez continued.

“It’s is great for my small Adelaide based team to have received support from a nationwide company.”

“Sunterra has a major presence in several prominent markets all over Australia, including South Australia and Victoria, and has helped thousands of Australians switch to greener power solutions.”

Sunterra specialises in the design and installation of grid-connected solar systems for residential and commercial properties. We supply and install a comprehensive range of Clean Energy Council (CEC) approved products, creating custom systems that are designed to meet the specific needs of individual customers.

George would like once again to thank all his sponsors for their continued support.
