After another top five effort in this mornings practice session, Tim had his second-best qualifying result of 2018, and was set to start from 13th for today’s 120km race around ‘The Bend’. After a slow start on the sandy side of the circuit dropped Tim to 17th, he managed to work his way back up to 15th.

“Mixed feelings after todays qualifying and race. This morning when the track was pretty clean our cars were very strong, we were 4th in the final practice session and after yesterdays results we thought we were well in the game. Qualifying became a bit of a lottery, teams only got two runs to get in a fast lap and we were probably a touch more conservative than we should have been. We finished 13th which still put us in a good starting spot for the race.”
“We had a poor start off the line, the conditions we had for the race were vastly different from how its been so far this weekend. I don’t think our car was as strong as it had been, but it was enough for us to hold onto 15th there at the end. I think we had the potential to be in the ten today, but track conditions were slightly off what we were hoping for this afternoon.”
