Australian Formula 3 graduate Todd Hazelwood has had an impressive debut in the Australian Supercars series.

Hazelwood says he is proud of what he was able to achieve and he certainly raised eyebrows from his first weekend in the main game courtesy of the new wildcard system.

The South Australian was the fastest of the four wildcards in practice, qualifying and Sunday’s Race 16, finishing ahead of several more experienced full-time Supercars drivers. Driving a Matt Stone Racing prepared Commodore, Hazelwood was able to show glimpses of pace which he followed up with 22nd and 18th finishes from the 30 car field.

Hazelwood managed to break into the top 10 in Saturday’s Practice 3 after topping Friday’s additional driver practice in the #21 Brad Jones Racing Commodore he will share with Tim Blanchard later this year.

Having entered the weekend with low expectations but felt he showed potential to Supercars teams. “We took a lot in but all in all I couldn’t be prouder of what the team has put together. It was a fantastic experience,” Hazelwood said
The rising Supercars star believes he has learned a lot of valuable information he will take into this year’s Pirtek Enduro Cup.

“It was the first time I’ve done high intensity racing with pit stops, managing new tyres, old tyres and saving fuel,” he said.

Hazelwood will now gear up for the fifth round of the Dunlop Super2 Series at the Red Rooster Sydney Super Sprint from August 18-20 where he hopes to extend his series lead.
