PUSHING FORWARD IN QUEENSLAND

I can’t believe we’re past the half way mark in the V8 Supercars Championship season already! It’s been a massive year so far. I was in Kuala Lumpur over the weekend for the V8 exhibition round at the inaugural KL City Grand Prix.

Five of us drove in three 20-minute demo races over the weekend and was an incredible experience. The track was really challenging and the event overall was great. I hadn’t had that much fun in a race car in quite a while.

We’re set to head back over to KL next year for a full championship round, which will be great, so I can’t wait to get back there.

Before KL, we were at Ipswich for the seventh round of the year. It really was a fantastic weekend overall for us.

We’ve taken a bit of a confidence hit lately with some reliability issues. So the goal was three top ten finishes at Queensland Raceway and we absolutely nailed that.

We got to test some new stuff on the Friday, and while it didn’t really work for us, we made big improvements over the weekend. We learnt a lot from Friday and I’m confident we can use it at some point down the road. All in all it was a great weekend.

Because things were going our way, I could really focus on pushing hard on track. Knowing we had good speed and having a lot of confidence in our tyre life, I could really focus on the front of the field. It does a lot for your mental state in the car when you know things are going your way. It’s just a lot of fun racing with good speed and being able to move forward. I love it!

There were a few little things that weren’t perfect, like issues in the pits and also getting held up in the pack a little. Without those little things I felt like we could have really challenged for the podium. But now we can look at those things and work out how to do it better next time. I feel like we’re really starting to iron out some of the issues we’ve been battling with and make some ground.

Everyone at the team should be proud of that effort at Ipswich because it was a great result for us. Now I can’t wait to get back out there in a couple of weeks!

Cheers

Will
