The Word From
Jake: Dunlop Racing “Bit of an up & down night for me in the #8. AE (Nick Percat’s engineer and my spotter) put together two awesome strategies in both races, with big over-cuts allowing me to come from 4 seconds behind in P21 to P9 in Race Two. Huge thanks to him for his work as he really saved our night in Race Two. A solid night with two top Tens for my championship! Huge thanks to Dunlop for their continued support, fingers crossed for future rounds we can translate good strategy and pace into some podiums and race wins."
Madison: Cub Cadet Mowers “Another solid night for the #14 and it was great to be in the Cub Cadet Mowers livery this round. We had great car speed and I feel once again managed to maximise the result. Qualifying was solid and really set up the night for Race One. We played the strategy perfectly and managed to bring the Cub Cadet Mowers Commodore home in 3rd.
The reverse grid was the high risk race for us with 150 points on offer. We were lucky enough to stay mostly out of the carnage and keep the car relatively straight which really is the aim of the game in that style of racing. We managed to bring the car up from 22nd to 8th to grab some much needed championship points.
Bathurst was such an important round with 150 points on offer in both races, more than any other. Scoring well has certainly strengthened our championship chances.”
Jackson: R&J Batteries “Definitely enjoyed racing at Bathurst, it’s a track whether you drive it in real life or on the sim, it’s always a good time. I felt like we had strong pace, I struggled to get a lap down when the track was at its best which cost me a top 5 in quali but we pushed forward in the race. I opted to run a long first stint and was looking good for a top 5 finish. Unfortunately, with 4 laps to go technology wasn’t on my side and my internet dropped out and took me out of the race.
Started from pole position in Race Two and it was a good opportunity to finally put the bad luck to an end and get a great result. I kept hitting consistent laps, made no mistakes and I took the win with some solid points. Overall good night of racing and it was great to be in the R&J Batteries Commodore. I have really good race pace every week, so I just need to work on extracting better one lap pace.”
