LESSONS FROM THE NORTH

After the disappointing round we had at Darwin, I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into Townsville this weekend.
 
We went into Darwin expecting to be strong but we just didn’t get on top of things. We were chasing all weekend which was really frustrating.
 
We still learn something every time we hit the track though, so hopefully we can turn things around at Townsville.
 
Townsville is definitely one of the highlights of the year. It’s a beautiful part of the world and it’s a really exciting event for us.
 
The fans really get behind the V8s and come from all around Queensland to embrace the event. It makes for an amazing atmosphere.
 
The track itself is also really enjoyable from a driver’s perspective. It’s a pretty short street circuit, so you need a car that’s really good on the kerbs but that also handles the nice flowing chicanes.
 
It’s a circuit where you can drive the car really hard, so it’s a pretty intense race. After 200km at full throttle, your body is really fatigued so it’s important to be mentally sharp.
 
It really takes its toll on the body, so we have the cool suits for the races and we make sure we rehydrate after Saturday, so we can back it up again on Sunday.
 
I’ve won there before, in 2013, which is certainly a thing I’m proud of on the CV. Getting my first podium with Erebus at Townsville last year was another big milestone. Hopefully we can go a couple better this year! 

Cheers
Will
