QUEENSLAND RACEWAY BLUES

THERE'S NOT much to say about Queensland Raceway, other than that it was pretty disappointing.
 
I go into every Supercar round with a firm belief that our Tekno Autosports Commodore can be a serious contender. By all accounts, we have the team and the machinery to get things done on the track.

However, unfortunately things at Queensland didn’t really come together the way we would have liked. We never really got the car working well on Saturday and I think I ended up seventh by sheer persistence, rather than speed.
 
Overall it wasn’t a bad result considering the circumstances, but if Saturday was tough, we really struggled on Sunday.
 
We tried some different things over the weekend with the car, but we couldn't really make sense of it and it meant that the car was a real handful on Sunday.
 
Queensland Raceway that looks so simple, but it's a real chassis balance circuit, and it's not easy to get the car into the ‘window’ there. Over the years I’ve certainly had great cars and some shockers, and it doesn't take much to be either side of the window.
 
The important thing for us now is analysing what we did this past weekend and learn from it.
 
We know what we did and we are confident we now know where we went wrong.
 
With limited testing you are often trying to move forwards over race weekends and it's two steps forwards, one step back. But we’ll pick ourselves up and make sure it's three steps forwards at Sydney Motorsport Park next month.
