THE WORD FROM NICK

Nick Percat made his first ever Clipsal 500 Top Ten Shootout today when he qualified in 7th position. Nick moved up a spot after the shootout to find himself starting from the 3rd row of the grid; in 6th position. After getting a great start off the line, the Clipsal Commodore found itself caught wide on the unforgiving turn 8. The damage was just enough to end the race for the former Clipsal 500 winner, with engine bolts shearing and shifting part of the front end across. The crew worked as quickly as they could to repair the damage but were unable to get Nick back on track. There is no doubt that the Team Clipsal Commodore is fast and has plenty of winning potential.

 

NICK “Not the ideal end to my Clipsal 500 campaign. I didn’t expect the amount of aero understeer I got there, so it was a mistake. It’s a common thing to get in that corner when there are so many cars going around. Qualifying this morning was really good, so there are some positives to take out of today and the weekend. It was my first time in the Top Ten Shootout here and so was stable mate Tim Slade, so it shows our cars are fast. It’s a good step forward for the team and positive for us moving onto the next round. I feel like I’ve had a taste of a really good car so I want more and am already eager for the Grand Prix. The team worked really hard this weekend and I can’t thank them enough.”
