Riewoldt is close mates with Shell V-Power Racing driver Scott McLaughlin, who leads the BP Supercars All Stars Eseries at the halfway point, but that’s not been his only source of motorsport wisdom.
“Scott has been coaching me a little bit but I’ve been driving at Dream Simulation with Tommy Randle actually and his dad Dean, so I’ve been down there punching out a few laps around the Mountain,” Riewoldt said on Supercars SideTracked.
“I started on a pretty low base so I have rapidly improved – I couldn’t get much worse.
“I think I crashed about 25 times in my first lap around there but yeah, I’m getting better slowly.
“I still have got a couple of practice runs before next Monday night.”
Riewoldt later added: “My goal is, before the race I want to get down to sort of like 2:08 to 2:09 for a lap around Mount Panorama in the simulator.
“I’m getting about two seconds better every time so with another sort of 14 visits to the simulator I think I’ll be down there!”
Dunlop Super2 Series driver Randle recently launched his Dream Simulation business; among his clients to date has been Lee Holdsworth, who he teamed up with in the 2019 PIRTEK Enduro Cup.
