THE WORD FROM NICK

Nick has come out swinging at Albert Park for the Coates Hire Supercars 400. In all practice and qualifying sessions Nick has been well inside the top ten, scoring his best qualifying result since joining the Brad Jones Racing squad. Nick described his TEMPUR Racing Commodore as the best car he’s driven around the Albert Park circuit, so no doubt he’ll sleep easy tonight!

 

The final two qualifying sessions are first on tomorrow’s agenda, then Nick will be starting out of position 7 for the first race of the weekend. He recaps the day below…

 

NICK

“Practice was really positive today, we’ve rolled out the cars and they’ve been fast from the get go which is always a positive start to a weekend at Albert Park. BJR has always had good pace here, and to be around the top of the times has been really good. It’s one of the strongest days I’ve had with BJR since I’ve been here.”

“The two back to back 10-minute qualifying sessions is almost like a top 26 shootout, the warm up lap here is crucial and you really need to walk the car around at 60km or so to make sure you take no energy or grip out of the car and then hope you arrive at turn one with enough tyre temp to get through there and push for a flying lap.”

“The TEMPUR Commodore is by far the best car I’ve ever had at the Grand Prix circuit, and it’s my best qualifying result so far with BJR.”
