THE WORD FROM TIM

It was a great weekend for the team at Freightliner Racing, taking home two top ten finishes and the fastest pit stop in the Pirtek Pit Stop Challenge. Qualifying today wasn’t the result the team were after, but Tim was undoubtedly one of the biggest movers in the field, charging from 16th to 7th.

It was a great effort from the guys behind the scenes to not only pick the right strategy, but to provide Tim with a really fast race car. Yesterday’s result of 4th equalled BJR’s best result here in their Queensland Raceway history. The weekend results also moves Tim up to 11th in the Supercars championship.

 

TIM

“I feel like this is the first weekend we’ve had this year where we’ve put it all together results wise. Two top ten finishes and some good points on the board is really nice.”

“Today I was disappointed after qualifying because I didn’t get the lap I wanted, and I feel the car would have got me into the top ten, but we just didn’t get the lap quite right. So we were way off the starting position we wanted.”

“In saying that I was confident for todays race, because I knew the car had good speed and that was going to help me move forward. We had the right strategy, stayed out of trouble, passed a few people, and overall I’m pretty pleased.”

“I have a bit of hope that we’ve found a bit of stuff this weekend that should help us at Eastern Creek. Combined that with the test day and hopefully we’re starting to move forward as a team.”
