RECAP:

It was a solid first day for both BJR drivers. Nick finished the first qualifying session well inside the top 10 before a small car adjustment didn’t yield the result the team was hoping for in the second session. For Todd it was a reversal of fortunes with the second session resulting in his best ever albert park qualifying position.  

 

THE WORD FROM NICK

It was a good first session but the change we made for the second one should have worked but for some weird reason it didn’t and resulted in a lot of understeer and cost us 7 tenths of a second so it’s going to be hard work for the second race but the good news is there are two qualifying sessions tomorrow and the races so I’m looking forward to a good day.

 

THE WORD FROM TODD

A couple of top 15s, we’ll take that and have a crack tomorrow and see where we end up. I think we could’ve done a better job today – especially me personally and I know I can get more out of myself on this track. The hardest thing on this track is to get a really clean lap. Looking forward to tomorrow!
