News // WE HAVE GOT THE PACE

STORY OF THE DAY

The Team BOC Commodore had the pace, the feedback from Jason and engineers alike was that the car was good. Qualifying around this track is crucial, with so many turns and only 20 laps to get the job done it makes it hard to pass. Nick Percat got the jump on Jason in the first race, putting him back into 11th position where he ultimately finished the race. Jason took advantage of some other cars coming together to move up through the field, and in the latter part of the race moved past James Moffat to finish in 14th place.

JASON’S WORD

“We’ve got much better pace today, I feel like with both of races if you look at our lap times we’re in the top 5-10 of people out there, we just need to qualify better.”

“We made a bit of ground those on first couple of laps, we also had a fair bit of damage from those first couple of laps however the car had really good pace. I managed to gain on Moffat, we made a little bit of contact as I passed him and I bent my steering.”

“Our race pace is good. It’s really all about qualifying. Qualify well sets you up for a good day. If we qualify in the top 5 tomorrow we’ll be pushing for a podium. I believe we’ve got the race pace to be there.”

“We’ve still got a little understeering, I’ll try a few more things for the practice session tomorrow. We’ve thrown a little bit at it already. On the flipside we’ve got some good strengths in the car. It’s looking after its tyres well. Overall we’re in good shape.”
