PRACTICE DAY RECAP

For the first time ever at Townsville, the wet weather tyres were needed! With overcast conditions, a light and continuous rain had set in, just in time for the drivers to roll out for practice one. Drivers found the track quite slippery, with a few sliding oh-so-close to the walls of the Reid Park street circuit.

 

Nick has always enjoyed the challenge the Townsville street circuit provides, with the added rain it only upped the ante for drivers and Nick proved his skill in the Elite Roads Supercar, finishing 3rd in the slippery first practice session.

 

The rain held off for the second practice session, so the times dropped considerably as drivers were back on their usual fast pace. Nick finished the final practice session in 15th, with only half a second between him and the top spot.

 

Teams will have one final practice session tomorrow before qualifying and the first 200-kilometer race of the weekend. The forecast is set to improve for tomorrow with everyone eager to see that famous Townsville shine!

 

NICK

“It was the first time the Supercars had ever driven the Townsville circuit in the rain, so it was interesting to learn how the track is in those conditions. Overall, I was happy with how the Elite Roads Supercar performed in the wet. As the conditions were really mixed today, we didn’t get to try everything we wanted to in the practice sessions.”

 

“It’s hard to know where everyone really sits after the final practice session as everyone is on different, old practice tyres. We’ll aim to make some further improvements in tomorrows’ final practice session before we get into qualifying.”
