News // COME-BACK KING MAKES UP 18 PLACES

People said passing would be difficult at Townsville?s demanding street track but Team BOC?s hard charger Jason Richards made it look easy during today?s 200km race.

Richards was gutted after qualifying 25th today; a far cry from fastest yesterday and 1.4s off his Friday pace. After Darwin?s race last month, however, Richards knew he could come from the back and some great strategy and a fast car saw him up to sixth with 20 laps to go.

A titanic battle with Russell Ingall lasted practically until the chequered flag, when The Enforcer passed him for sixth. Qualifying for tomorrow?s race begins at 11am.

?Ingall did a great job and wore me down; not bad for an old bloke!

?When you come from 25th all the way through the pack with great race pace and still have some left for the end, that?s just awesome. I?m pretty proud of my lads; you couldn?t pass that many people if you haven?t got the car under you.

"It was good strategy over the race distance; we basically just ran in clear air and we had a fast car.?

Brad Jones
Team Co-Owner

?It was clear from yesterday that we have a very quick car and it just goes to show you can pass in this category. It was a little bit marginal on fuel at the end but what a great result.?
