- Nick’s best result here was a 9th place finish in Race 3 in 2015.
- 2017 is the first time we will see Supercars qualify for each individual race. Previously drivers qualified for race one, then race 2 and 3 were determined by the previous race finishing position, and race four starting positions were based on points earned over the first three races. The qualifying sessions on Friday will be 10 minutes each, with only a 10-15 minute gap in between each session.
- A memorable moment for Nick is in 2009 when he won the Formula Ford races and the round overall at Albert Park.
- Nick’s favourite part of the circuit is turns 3, 4 and 5. He says turn 3 is a corner which is hard to get the braking right and has a low corner speed. Then the approach to turn 4 and turn 5 are medium to high speed corners, where the car balance is a lot different. Nick likes having to adapt two different driving styles to these corners to make the most of them.
