Trophy Race winners to get extra Clout thanks to new race sponsor

Winners of the Trophy Race at each round of the 2023 Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Masters Series will add a little more clout to their winning ways this year.

Brisbane-based Travel Agency Clout Travel will offer $500 in travel credit to each winner of the popular ‘Jumbled Grid’ TCM race that commences each weekend.

The Trophy Race sees the top half of the field from qualifying reversed and sent to the back of the grid, offering a chance for new names and faces to shine at the front of the field where otherwise they might not have the opportunity.

The Trophy Race is known for producing incredible racing as new names revel in leading and the fastest cars and drivers charge through the field.

Highlights of the Trophy Races in 2022 included Danny Buzadzic claiming his first TCM race win in Townsville, before going on to repeat that at Sandown the next round.

Clout Travel is a family-owned boutique travel agency that offers incredible experiences for customers looking for their next great trip away.

“The pride we take in our work and the care we show each of our clients has allowed us to grow into one of the most popular boutique travel agencies in Brisbane,” explained Melanie Clout of Clout Travel.

“With our expanding list of awards and accreditations, we are always striving for perfection in what we do for ourselves and our clients. We already work on sourcing travel solutions for several Queensland-based teams in Touring Car Masters, so we’re thrilled to work more broadly with the category to assist all the teams with their travel needs.”

The opening round of the Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Masters Series will be tightly battled this weekend at the third running of AWC Race Tasmania this February 24-26.

Coverage of the opening round of the Shannons SpeedSeries will be broadcast live on both days on Stan Sport, with live and free-to-air coverage on the Nine Network on Saturday afternoon.
