THE RECAP & WORD FROM TIM / ASH

A light rain had settled in for the opening practice day at Mount Panorama. The conditions were not ideal for drivers, as the track continued to change from no rain, to light rain; not allowing the track to dry enough to really drive and push the Supercars at Bathurst today. The conditions saw several cars opt out of the practice sessions, not wanting to put any use on components that will need to withstand a 1000km battle on Sunday. With more rain forecast tomorrow before clearing for qualifying, it will make for an exciting day!

 

TIM

“Today didn’t provide the best conditions for our start to the Bathurst weekend. It’s hard to really push these cars how you need to in the tricky, wet conditions and you don’t want to be risking doing any kind of damage to the cars.”

“All you can really do at this point is get a feel for the car in the rain, and as we’ve said before, the Freightliner Racing Commodore seems to suit the wet weather races. It’ll be interesting to see how the weather pans out for tomorrow, especially with qualifying later in the afternoon. Ideally, we’d like to get a few laps in on a dry track as we want to fine tune our car to ensure it is fast over the 1000 come Sunday. Plus, really drive these Supercars how we should at Bathurst for qualifying.”
