RAEME soldiers used their skills to keep the Stadium Super Trucks racing during the NTI Townsville 500 Supercars event earlier this month.

Nine junior RAEME soldiers from units across the 3rd Brigade were selected to support the Super Trucks from July 9 to 11, working with the drivers, conducting general vehicle maintenance, body repairs and staging the ramp jumps. 

More familiar with working on armoured cavalry tanks, Corporal David Seymour from the 2nd Cavalry Regiment explained how the adaptability of their trade-based skills allowed the RAEME soldiers to integrate within the Super Trucks team.
