|Winslow dominates on the streets of Adelaide with a clean sweep and record breaking 19th victory|
James Winslow got his 2012 Formula 3 Australian Drivers Championship underway in the perfect way by taking a clean sweep of race wins on the streets of Adelaide, and in turn broke a longstanding record, but the lack of a major sponsor could hamper the BRDC Gold Star points leaders' chances to try and continue his winning streak at the next round in Tasmania.
Having only landed in Adelaide about 15 hours before his first session on track, Winslow set his stall out from the outset by powering his RTek machine to pole position for the first of the weekend's three races.
With the chequered flag awaiting Winslow at the end of the first race, so did joint 1st place in the ranks of outright Australian Formula 3 race wins, and this was followed up two more victories over the weekend to put Winslow clear in first place.
Having almost missed the event, Winslow was quick to praise the efforts of his RTek Motorsport team, and the huge effort put in by each and every team member.
"RTek did an amazing job. I know everyone says this after winning races but they really did do me proud this weekend.
"We all worked very well together and I would like to dedicate this win to them.
"We basically got the okay to race here on Tuesday, after failing to sign a big sponsor for the 2012 season, and have survived the weekend on the smallest of budgets.
"Yet again we have shown an amazing team spirit, and managed to pull of an amazing hattrick of wins win.
"We are looking for support for the remaining season," said Winslow.
In taking all three race wins, Winslow now has 19 outright championship victories in Australian Formula 3, and 21 if non-championship events are counted.
Winslow is keen to further extend the number of category race wins he has, but does need to secure sponsorship to continue in the series for 2012.
Having missed one event in 2011 due to budgetary reasons, Winslow ultimately missed out on the championship title by the smallest of margins, but if he had been able to compete at that one event, the 2008 series champion would have more than likely secured his second series title.
"Thank you to RTek and Gravity Events, Foam Fast and Climate Air.
"We are now looking ahead to the rest of the season, and with Tasmania coming up in three weeks, we need to find a sponsor.
"Our results last year, and the way we have started this year show we are competitive and are fully able to deliver the title at the end of the season," added Winslow.
Of his current position at the top of the BRDC Gold Star standings, Winslow said "I'm really glad to be leading the BRDC Gold Star award, I'll enjoy it while it lasts as when the F1 season starts and World Touring cars I'll get shuffled down... but I'll enjoy it while it lasts!'
