PremiAir Nulon Racing is set to mark Tim Slade’s 200th Supercars round with a number change on his Chevrolet Camaro.

Slade will become the 22nd driver to record 200 ATCC/Supercars rounds at this weekend’s Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint.

The 38-year-old, who debuted at the 2009 Adelaide 500 for Paul Morris Motorsport, will sport the #200 for the Perth round.

Slade has campaigned the #23 on his Chevrolet for all events with PremiAir Nulon Racing since joining in 2023, bar from his very first round with the team.

The veteran raced with the #400 at last year’s season-opener in Newcastle, with Slade celebrating 400 Supercars races.

The team will be competing on both sides of the country, with Xiberras fielding the PremiAir Nulon Racing Top Fuel Dragster in two National Drag Racing Championship title rounds in Sydney.

The Supercars squad is still chasing its first Supercars podium, with James Golding already scoring two top fives this year, in Bathurst and New Zealand.


Slade claimed two top 10 finishes at last year’s Perth round, with redemption the goal following reliability issues 12 months ago, and recent heartbreak in Taupō.

Slade qualified for both Shootouts in New Zealand, but a Saturday start-line collision and Sunday fuel issue prevented him from converting to results.

“We are greatly looking forward to celebrating Tim’s milestone, and to building on the strong showing he had their last year with some top 10 results and an impressive drive job around a broken gear selector,” Stephen Robertson, PremiAir Nulon Racing Team Manager, said.

"From this event onwards Tim is partnering up with our Competition Director Ludo Lacroix as his lead engineer. Ludo has had some great success in the West in the past, including 14th to first with Craig Lowndes in 2016 and 18th to first with Scott McLaughlin in 2018.

"He tells us that he loves Perth, and with the steps made forward at the GP and at Taupō, I can tell you things are feeling quite positive on that side of the garage ahead of this event.

"For Jimmy, he and lead engineer Romy Mayer have also been hard at work as they look to continue their momentum from the recent rounds.

"Golding’s last trip to the West showed plenty of strength, driving from P24 to P14 in the first race of the weekend, from P22 to P11 in the second, and from P19 to P11 in the third, so they have plenty to build upon."

Tickets for the Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint are on sale now. Track action will commence on Friday. International viewers can follow all the action on Superview.
