Townsville Top Ten Snaps

There’s no better way to quench thirst than with champagne and the whole Triple Eight crew did just that in Townsville. Three podium finishes and a long-awaited win for car 88 mark it as an event to remember from 2017, so here are our favourite snaps from the week that was.


Run, Forrest, run!

You can always count on Townsville to shine…

Townsville really does shine on Shane van Gisbergen!

Although it actually stopped shining on Monday, so we’d like to think the sun came out just for us.


… And then have some of the best sunsets anywhere

The Townsville sunsets are pretty good too

Headlights on, coming through!
