“Barbagallo Raceway is a cool track and I guess is a little significant for me as it’s where I made my Supercar debut. The surface has always been a little different because of the amount of sand that blows on to the track, but that can make these things even a little more fun to drive. We’re looking forward to putting on one hell of a show for the fans who are becoming more and more knowledgeable about the series and its drivers.” Matt Brabham.It was a solid outing for a guy who had never before been behind the wheel of a Supercar, dealing with the increased physical strain of competing in two different categories and having back-to-back races. He finished the 2017 Stadium Super Trucks Barbagallo weekend on the podium with a third place overall.
