Scott McLaughlin and Chaz Mostert have visited Century Batteries headquarters near Queensland Raceway today, to help the company donate $5,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities South East Queensland.

McLaughlin, Mostert and ECB SuperUtes driver Cameron Crick met with over 400 staff members at the Carole Park facility just four days out from this weekend’s Century Batteries Ipswich SuperSprint.

The $5,000 helps to provide critical family services at RMHC for 38 consecutive days.

This year marks the first for Century Batteries as the naming rights sponsor of the Ipswich event, coupled with its deal as the official battery of Supercars.

McLaughlin took all four pole positions at Queensland Raceway in 2017 and 2018, and has scored 11 of the 18 on offer so far this season.

But being first on the grid hasn’t delivered much success at Queensland Raceway, with just three conversions from the last 14 races, Mostert (Sunday 2015) and McLaughlin (Saturday '17 and Saturday '18).

McLaughlin heads into this weekend holding a commanding 292-point lead in the championship from his Shell V-Power team-mate Fabian Coulthard.

Red Bull Holden’s Shane Van Gisbergen is third while Mostert is fourth, 528 points behind McLaughlin.

This weekend’s Century Batteries Ipswich SuperSprint will feature a packed support card, featuring Dunlop Super2, Kumho Super3, ECB Supercars, Touring Car Masters and Aussie Racing Cars.
