It was cool and windy at Symmons Plains today, and after a disappointing qualifying session, the only way was forward for Tim today. Starting out of 26th he was one of the bigger movers of the day, making up a total of five spots through passing and attrition, to finish 21st. After finding some confidence in the changes, Tim is eager to go better tomorrow.

“Qualifying was not the result we were after today. We made some big changes going into the race, as we really had nothing to lose today. I feel the changes worked out pretty well and we had a much more competitive car today, I had more confidence with braking and turn which is what we needed.”
“It’s hard to pass here at this circuit so it was good to move forward a few spots and make some moves.”
“Overall, I feel we have the car in a better window for tomorrow, so if we can get a better result in practice hopefully we can move forward in qualifying and go from there.”
