TAKING ON TOWNSVILLE

Well here we are, now past the half way mark in the championship. 2016 is flying by and we’ve had a mixed bag of results on the race track.
 
Townsville was a little disappointing for us. While we were in the mix, we had issues all weekend which held us back a little.
 
A few different issues raised their heads on Saturday but we still managed to grab fifth place, which was a solid result. Things don’t always go the way you want them to on the race track, so often it’s all about doing the best you can with what you’ve got. So coming home with fifth on an average day is a pretty good result.
 
On Sunday the car was a lot better and I was confident after qualifying fourth, though the Top Ten Shootout didn’t pan out the way I had hoped.
 
During the race things went from bad to worse when we had to stack in the pits, before struggling with a significant issue tyre issue that completely killed our speed. Things started to look up towards the end of the race but unfortunately it was too little, too late and the best we could do was 11th.
 
Of course it’s frustrating when these things happen, but you learn from them and move on. It’s a pretty quick turnover as we’re off to Queensland Raceway this weekend.
 
QR is our home test track so with that bit of extra experience in the Tekno Commodore there, hopefully redemption is not too far away.
