Penrite Racing has again sent its cars straight to North Queensland between events instead of returning to Melbourne, with one of its Holden's parked up at Malouf Holden in Mount Isa.
After claiming two podiums at the Darwin Triple Crown, the team spent until Tuesday in Darwin preparing its two Commodores before sending them across country ahead of this weekend's Townsville 400.
It is the third year in a row Penrite Racing has opted the same procedure with David Reynolds' Holden on display last weekend in Mount Isa.
"It's something we have done for a few years now and it works well," Penrite CEO Barry Ryan said.
"We can't thank Paul Malouf and the Malouf Holden team enough for their support over the last four seasons.
"We have enough time to prepare everything we need ahead of Darwin and the stopover gives our crew an opportunity to take a deserved break between these two events.
"We were lucky to come out of Darwin so well and it only took a day and a half to turn the cars around."
The #9 Penrite Holden was on show from Thursday until Saturday before heading to Townsville.
"It's a great opportunity for the locals to go down and take a look at the car, the truck is there too, and we're giving away merchandise," Ryan said.
The squad sits third in the team's standings following its fifth podium result in Darwin.
