As the Dunlop Series gears up for this weekend’s historic 150th round, several Australian motorsport’s up and coming stars will be on track looking to write their own name into history at the NTI Townsville 500.

The combined Dunlop Super2 and Dunlop Super3 Series will race twice over the weekend, once on Saturday and once on Sunday – both 40-minute battles.

Looking at past form in Townsville, there is a number of drivers to keep an eye out for in the Dunlop Super3 Series.

Jobe Stewart

The Erebus Academy prodigy continues to lead the Dunlop Super3 Series standings heading into the third of six rounds on the calendar this weekend.

The South Australian 19-year-old has two wins and two second placings from his first four starts in the #999 Commodore and holds a narrow 27-point lead in points standings heading into the two races in Townsville.

Cameron McLeod

The grandson of 1987 Bathurst winner Peter McLeod is second in the DS3 standings after two rounds driving his #92 Nissan Altima.


He has shared race victories with Stewart over the opening two rounds, the only blemish in his points coming from a fifth placing in the opening race of the year in Newcastle.

Jett Johnson

The third-generation grandson of Supercars Hall of Fame inductee Dick Johnson could gain one key advantage over his DS3 rivals this weekend in Townsville – driving the NAPA backed NASCAR in demonstration laps.

The 18-year-old #117 Nissan Altima driver is third in DS3 points after two rounds, after clocking two thirds and two fourths from his opening four races.
