THE WORD FROM NICK

The Dunlop Super Dealer Commodore was running strong in the top ten in today’s 200kms race, making it as high as 5th. However with less than 15 laps to go, Nick, James Courtney and Garth Tander all came across debris on the circuit which forced them into the pits for tyres. The safety car made its first appearance of the weekend to remove the debris, and the race resumed with 8 laps to go.

With Nick rejoining 26th and a lap down, he didn’t have enough time to gain back the positions he would have liked. However Nick managed to get in front of the cars in front who were also a lap down to claim 24th.

 

NICK

“I’m obviously disappointed for the team today. We had the chance to have The Dunlop Super Dealer and Freightliner Racing Commodore score top ten finishes in both yesterdays and todays’ race and take away a really good points haul.”

 

“I can’t believe the amount of potential we have, but something out of anyone’s control has caught us out today. The Dunlop team came down straight away and were pretty gutted as well, they’ve had nothing but great feedback about this car and how good it looks all weekend. It would have been awesome for them and all the guys and girls at BJR to get the result I feel we deserved today.”
