STORY OF THE DAY

After qualifying in 14th, the afternoon saw two races to determine the qualifying position of the Team BOC Commodore for Sunday. The co-driver race was first and Andrew got a brilliant start, quickly moving from 14th to 10th. After sitting comfortably behind a battle pack of cars Andrew was involved in what was deemed a racing incident with Alex Premat, however the incident causing enough front end damage to end the race early for Andrew. Andrew retired to the pits with the team work frantically on the car to have it ready for Jason who started the second race in position 25. Jason was able to make ground on some of the pack early on, slowly making his way through the field and gaining on others unfortunate mistakes. He finished the race in 17th which is where the pair will start for tomorrow’s first endurance race of the season, the Sandown 500.

DRIVERS WORD

ANDREW:

“We definitely didn’t want to end our race like that, it wasn’t in the game plan. We were trucking along pretty good until that incident, the start was great and I managed to make up a few spots on the opening lap. At that point for me it was like we have achieved our objective and made up a few spots in the race so we could then run the natural flow of the race. We didn’t need to be getting involved in anything so to be involved in that was disappointing.”

“Like all racing incidents there are a two sides to it, my view on it is that on the turn point of the corner Alex wasn’t far enough up on the inside of me to be having a crack. I haven’t seen his onboard cameras to compare to mine but I feel like both cars should have been able to get through there side by side. Am I disappointed, yes absolutely I am.” “It’s not what we came here to do and not what today is about. I would have preferred for Jason to start the second qualifying race from up in the top ten and put us in a strong position for tomorrow. It’s happened, we can’t change it so will see what we can do tomorrow.”

JASON:

It’s always going to be hard starting from the rear on hard tyres. I felt like the car was good. It was better than qualifying and we were able to move forward but it was a difficult task. We had good car power.”

“There were not a lot of passing opportunities here, it’s too risky to make a lot of hard passes when you’re fighting for qualifying positions. You want to make sure everything is a gain.”

“The car will be good for tomorrow, there are a couple of little things we can improve on overnight. We just need to make sure the first part of the race tomorrow is clean and from there we will see where we end up.”
