“It was a tough finish to our weekend at ‘The Bend’. We had shown good promise during the practice sessions on Friday and in both qualifying and the race yesterday.”
 
“Qualifying was a mixed bag today, with a few of us really struggling to get that perfect lap, so it was disappointing to be starting well down the order. There was plenty of passing going on in todays race, with people really trying to push each other around as they find the limits of this new circuit. We moved forward, but not nearly enough as I would have liked.”
 
“We’ll regroup and have our final test day in the next week, before getting the cars ready again for the first Pirtek Endurance Cup event on the calendar – the Sandown 500. I always look forward to these events, so I’m excited to see what co-driver Dale Wood and I can achieve together.”
