PRACTICE RECAP 

Car #8 was fast straight out of the box on Thursday morning - Nick relatively happy with the R&J Batteries Supercar in first practice but not setting a fast lap at the end of the session. Second practice was exclusively for co-drivers and Thomas Randle acquainted himself well before a small engine issue curtailed his final fast lap. The third and final session yielded the best result of the day after some significant setup tweaks, Nick setting a time that put the team well within the top 10 leading into qualifying tomorrow. 

 

PIRTEK PIT STOP CHALLENGE

The R&J Batteries Supercar secured the first win of the weekend for the team by crossing the line clearly in front of DJR Team Penske to secure the PIRTEK Pit Stop Challenge for the second year in a row! $20,000 a great reward for a superb year of pit stops.

 

THE WORD FROM NICK 

“A solid day one at Bathurst. We had a few little niggles at the start of the day but that’s always to be expected and we found our groove finishing with p5 in practice three today so I’m happy with that. The car is feeling mechanically good so we’ll work through our data tonight and see where we can improve on track and continue pushing forward. Thomas did a good job, the car is straight and moving into tomorrow his confidence will build so I’m happy with how we’re sitting at the moment. 

 

Winning the 2020 PIRTEK Pit Stop Challenge and bringing 20k back to Albury is an awesome way to start Bathurst. The boys have been working bloody hard so I’m very happy for the team. They really deserved it!”
