Dontas Hunting for Gold Coast V8 Utes Redemption
Craig Dontas is returning to the Gold Coast 600 this coming weekend in the V8 Utes Category for Shannons Insurance, as he hunts for redemption after a tough 2016 round.
With a quick turn around in between the two of the largest rounds of the year, Dontas is looking forward to the challenge of backing up his strong Bathurst 1000 results with a drive at the Gold Coast 600.
The Shannons Insurance Racer is hunting for redemption after a crash in Race 2 last year, which retired him for the weekend and put him out of contest for a round podium and the Championship title.
Much like the Bathurst 1000, Dontas is happy to have a chance at racing the V8 Utes on the circuit for its final round on the Gold Coast.
Dontas is heading into the round with a positive mind set, and is aiming to survive the round and get a positive result for the Shannons Insurance team.
“I'm really looking forward to heading to the Gold Coast for a bit of redemption after last years massive wreck! I'm really happy that we have once last shot to run a Ute there. Our goal for the weekend we've set is to survive and get a good result."
The Gold Coast 600 will be held on October 20-22, with all races to be televised live on Fox Sports.
