THE ENGINEERS WORD – Paul Scalzo

Why is qualifying so important this weekend?

With each race being the 100km sprint format, there are no scheduled pit stops and passing opportunities are slim. Therefore, qualifying will likely be the determining factor in race finish position this weekend.

What was the focus on in today’s 3 half hour practice sessions?

A strong qualifying car was on the top of today’s agenda. To have a successful race weekend we need to maximise one lap performance from the car. As the qualifying sessions are shorter also, changes in the session will be difficult so we’ll need to make sure the car is close to the mark heading into both the Saturday and Sunday qualifying sessions.

What do you think your strength will be at Pukekohe?

Pukekohe has mixture of high speed and low speed corners. Typically we have a strong high speed balance which should suit turns one, ten and eleven. Whilst the good grip in the new section through turns five, six and eight should also help with overall grip.
