Tim Slade became the year's second double race winner at Winton this season, breaking through for his first Supercars win on his 227th attempt. 

The South Australian shifts from Walkinshaw Racing after the decision to downsize, and hopes to continue racking up podium finishes as he did last year in Darwin and in 2014 at Winton, the Gold Coast and Sydney.

Slade first made headlines in 2006 when he finished second in the Australian Formula Ford Championship.

Slade progressed to the V8 Development Series in 2007, taking his first round win with his own team in 2008 and claiming the Privateers Cup for the best non-main game affiliated driver.

Slade’s persistence captured the attention of V8 Supercars team owner Paul Morris, and he was rewarded with a full-time drive for the Supercheap Auto Racing squad in 2009, scoring top-10 results in the Phillip Island and Bathurst endurance races.

A shift to Stone Brothers Racing in 2010 yielded further improvements, Slade finishing 16th before taking his first podium finish in 2011 en-route to ninth overall.

2012 was an even more impressive season for the South Australian, who finished fifth overall after scoring more podiums along with his first career pole.

The 2013 season was more challenging, Slade remaining with his team through its transition to Erebus Motorsport and struggling for results as the team developed its Mercedes-Benz customer entries.

Slade returned to a Holden Commodore in 2014 and continued with Walkinshaw Racing in the Supercheap Auto entry last year.
