WE'RE BACK

Hey guys,
Well I have to say, it’s great to be back!
We kicked off the 2016 V8 Supercar season at Adelaide last week and it was fantastic to be back behind the wheel.
It was a crazy weekend to start the year. There was plenty of drama and I’m sure the fans loved it. For us, it was a bit of a mixed weekend.
This was my first round with my new team, Tekno Autosports and it was always going to be a big learning curve as I tried to get comfortable in the new Holden Commodore.
You always want to be right at the front straight away, but often that’s not the way it goes.
Early in the weekend it was all about getting comfortable in the car and learning how to get the speed out of it, and how it reacts to certain changes.
We’ve gelled quickly as a team. Everyone at Tekno is great to work with, so I am really enjoying that side of it.  It’s a great operation and gives me great confidence for the season ahead.
There will always be more to learn and the next round at the Australia Grand Prix is the perfect opportunity to build on that foundation.
We’ll still be there racing as hard as we can, put there’s no pressure from a points perspective.
So it’s always a very different challenge to the standard race meeting. But it means I’ll be able to experiment with some changes to the car to understand more about it. I’m really looking forward to that.
I’m still coming to grips with the car, so it will be fantastic to throw a heap of different settings at it, which will allow us to go to Tasmania with a much better understanding of where we’re at and hopefully challenge for wins.
That’s the plan, anyway!
