ONE YEAR LATER

So it’s been a little over a year since Erebus’ first – and last – V8 Supercar race win.

At a glance it may seem like we haven’t made much ground since then. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Since my teammate’s win at Winton last year, we’ve been challenging a lot higher up the grid.

Last year I finished in the top ten 15 times, scored my first podium finish with the team and claimed our first pole position.

And this year, while the results don’t show it, we’ve taken a huge step forward. Our speed is definitely there, we just need some more consistency to see the results come through.

We only get a couple of shots at getting things right at each circuit we go to, so when we’re working so hard to develop the car each time we hit the track, nailing the setup isn’t an easy task.

But this year we’re heading in with twice as much data as we did last year and it’s showing. We’re really starting to hit the ground running. We’re topping practice sessions and fighting for the top spots in qualifying. That’s where we need to be to start challenging for race wins.

We’ve definitely made the car a lot stronger. It’s easier to drive and we’re getting a lot more out of the engine.

To be a part of the process has been very rewarding and to see and feel the progress is the ultimate motivation.

We can now focus on the smaller things. With the field so close, those minor details are often the difference between fifth and first place on track. So we just need to keep pushing and everything will fall into place.
