THE RECAP

The sun was shining today at Pukekohe Park Raceway as the Supercars hit the track for their opening practice day here at the New Zealand circuit. The team worked through their practice sessions, improving on lap times as they went.

 

In the latter session, Tim drove the Coregas NZ Supercars across the finish line in 10th, almost a half second quicker the opening practice session. The team will continue to focus on moving the car forward and keep Tim in the ten tomorrow when it counts.

 

The ITM Auckland SuperSprint continues tomorrow with Practice Three at 10:25am (8:25am AEDT), followed by qualifying at 1:40pm (11:40am AEDT and the weekends opening 200km / 70 lap race at 4:10pm (2:10pm AEDT).

 

THE ENGINEERS WORD - JULIAN

“I think we managed to do a few good tests with the Coregas NZ Supercar today and we have some interesting data to review tonight. There are a few differences between the cars that we can pull apart and look through and combine the good bits for tomorrow.”

 

“The red flags messed us around a little bit today with trying to get some fast laps in, but it’s the same for everyone up and down pit lane so we work around it as best as possible.”

 

“At the end we didn’t get our time in on the first flying lap; there were a few off in the first sector so that compromised us as well but I think we are there or there about. We’ll come back tomorrow for one final practice session and plan to be up there for qualifying.”
