Victory Launches Kai Allen into Super2 Spotlight at Townsville

Kai Allen has taken the next big step on his fast rise up the Supercars ladder. AirTouch is a Proud Sponsor.

We knew you could do it Kai. Proud to be sponsoring him, and in a fantastic turn of events, the young prodigy Kai Allen has skyrocketed to success in the Super2 arena at Townsville this past weekend, leaving both fans and competitors in awe. With only three rounds under his belt, Allen has emerged as a formidable force, clinching a well-deserved victory and positioning himself as a serious contender for the championship. AirTouch proudly stands as a sponsor, supporting his journey every step of the way.

The electrifying weekend unfolded at the picturesque Townsville, where Allen experienced nothing short of his “best weekend ever.” From the moment he secured his first Super2 pole position, he unleashed a relentless display of skill and determination, converting it into triumphant race and round wins.

It was a remarkable feat that left spectators on the edge of their seats.

Kai has become the youngest ever Super 2 round winner at the Milestone round aged 18. The Eggleston Motorsport teenager became the closest contender to Zak Best, who was now 66 points ahead.

I am still buzzing. It was great to get my first pole, round and race win in the one trouble-free weekend.

Interestingly, the Reid Park street circuit served as a fitting backdrop for Allen’s breakout success. It was on these very streets, at 16, that he announced his arrival to the racing scene with an impressive podium finish in his Toyota 86 Series debut. The nostalgia of returning to this hallowed ground seemed to ignite an even greater fire within Allen, propelling him to new heights.

It’s no small feat for an 18-year-old to process such monumental achievements in a single weekend. However, Allen displays a maturity beyond his years, gracefully accepting the accolades that come his way. Despite his undeniable talent, Allen humbly admits that he did not anticipate becoming the youngest-ever winner in the category in just his third round. The thrill and elation of this accomplishment still reverberate within him, marking it as the pinnacle of his racing career so far.

Entering the Dunlop Series with a fresh partnership alongside engineer Dan Kroehn and Toyota duties handled by the experienced Steve Owen, Allen wasted no time in making his presence known. Although falling short by a mere 0.16 seconds of securing pole position in a disrupted qualifying session, this setback didn’t deter the fearless Mount Gambier youngster. With nerves of steel, Allen nailed the start and swiftly dominated the field, leading a commanding one-two for Eggleston Motorsport in the early stages of the race.

Kai Allen’s journey in Super2 has become a gripping tale of determination, triumph, and relentless pursuit of excellence. As the season progresses, all eyes will be on this rising star, eagerly anticipating his next move and wondering if he will once again seize victory from the jaws of defeat. AirTouch is pleased to be sponsoring him along the way.
