V8 driver visits town on way to Townsville 500

NATHANAEL Taylor is a motor sport fanatic, so when he heard about Aaron McGill coming to town with his VE Commodore, he immediately locked in the time to meet the V8 Development Series driver.

On his way to the Townsville 500, McGill made his first stop of four in total at Gladstone's Battery World, greeting Taylor and a host of other fans.

Offering the opportunity to pick his brain about the sport, and jump into the driver's seat of the V8 Supercar, McGill is also stopping at Rockhampton, Mackay and Townsville before the race as a thank you to his sponsors Battery World.
