Young-gun, Jaylyn Robotham who has just returned from a successful weekend in Bangsaen, Thailand where he competed in the TA2 Asia Series will now head over to Queensland Raceway this weekend, as he takes on double duties in the Excel Series as well as the Queensland Production Car Series.
With only a two-week break, the 16-year old is straight back into it and will co-drive alongside Andrew Wilton in the Massel Australia Endurance Cup, behind the wheel of a car he is no stranger to; a Toyota 86.
The duo will compete in the Class D category, sporting The86Shop livery where the Series will feature two one-hour long races, including the category’s second-ever night race on the Saturday night.
“I’m really excited to be joining Andrew and the crew for the enduro round at Queensland Raceway this weekend. I’ve been to Queensland Raceway a couple of times, most recently for a test day in a Super2 – so I can’t wait to get out there and see what we can do,” said Robotham.
There will be no rest for the youngster, as he takes on double duties over the weekend, also competing in the Hyundai Excel Series in the Endurance Cup; alongside 4-time Excel Cup champion, Brett Parrish.
“It’s certainly going to be a busy weekend, but I’m really looking forward it,” said the Victorian racer.
“Certainly, it’ll be interesting going from one car to the other, but that’s all part of racing and just another notch of experience to add to my belt. I’ll just have my head down, making sure I’m doing my part and doing the best I can for these guys.
“I can’t thank everyone enough for the opportunity this weekend, Andrew Wilton Racing and The86Shop as well as Brett Parrish and BPRO.”
