THE WORD FROM NICK & MACAULEY

MACAULEY “It was not the run we were hoping for in this morning’s co-driver session. A popped spark plug saw us have to finish the session after only 7 laps and the team had to then work as quick as they could to do an engine change to get Nick out for his practice session. A positive we can take out of it was that our team-mates Todd Hazelwood (Team CoolDrive) finished in P1, and Ash Walsh (Freightliner Racing) finished in P6. So the potential to have all 3 cars in the top ten was possible.”

 

NICK “The guys did a really impressive job to change the engine as quick as they did this morning. I feel bad for Macauley as he didn’t get to turn many laps here today and the previous session at Winton was pouring with rain so I feel like he hasn’t been able to get a really good taste of our Dunlop Racing Commodore just yet. Luckily for us as a group we know where he is at and he’ll be fast no matter what.”

 

“We made a couple of changes over the sessions and improved the car. We didn’t get the flying laps like we wanted to at the end of the second session, everyone was frantically exiting pit lane and the traffic made us cross the line a nanosecond after what we needed to, so the result is far from where we would have been. Ipswich is really dependent on setup, so I feel like we’ve rolled out a decent car here this weekend and just need to fine tune it some more to get that little bit further up the order.”
