CONQUERING THE MOUNTAIN

YOU ALWAYS believe you can win the Bathurst 1000 but when it happens it’s almost too much to believe!
 
After I won with HRT back in 2009 I immediately wanted to win Bathurst again and it feels incredible to finally achieve that dream.
 
Sunday’s race was truly amazing. We had a big task ahead of us, starting 17th, but it’s a long race and we had time to get ourselves up there ready for the sprint home at the end.
 
Jono Webb did a brilliant job in his stints, the pitstops were great, our strategy was orchestrated perfectly. We had some luck along the way too, but everyone does to win that race.
 
The last hour of the race was incredibly intense and those last few laps racing Shane Van Gisbergen when we were marginal on fuel were among the toughest I’ve ever done.
 
Plus I hear our winning margin was apparently one of the smallest in Bathurst history!
 
There are only seven permanent members of Tekno’s Supercars operation, so we are a close-knit group and made our victory together against the big teams on Sunday all the sweeter.
 
All the guys at Tekno deserve a lot of recognition for the huge hours they’ve put in this year, for sticking with it when we’ve struggled and for maintaining the faith. Things like this are truly a team effort.
