- Nick is building quite the Bathurst 1000 record – 3 podiums and 4 top 4 finishes from his 6 starts in the race.

- Eighth grid position is the only spot in the top ten to have never produced a Bathurst race winner!

- Nick won the Bathurst 1000 in 2011, the first rookie since Jacky Ickx in 1977 to win the race!

- The car that has started on pole position has won the Bathurst race 11 times, however the last pole-sitter to win was the Garth Tander / Will Davison HRT Commodore in 2009.

- Co-Driver Macauley Jones finished 15th in 2015 on debut with Dale Wood, and 10th last year with Tim Blanchard. Both times in the team’s #21 Commodore.

- Macauley was born six days after his father paired with Craig Lowndes to finish 2nd for HRT in 1994, and this year Macauley will celebrate his 23rd birthday on race day!
