THE WORD FROM TIM
Albert Park turned on the sunshine for today’s final qualifying sessions and first of four Melbourne 400 Supercars races.
The final two qualifying sessions saw Tim double up with a result of 21st, and he finished the first race in 23rd. It became a tyre game at the end of the race, with the high degradation circuit favouring those who stopped that little bit later in the race than others.
Tomorrow Tim will start the 70km race out of 18th, then the 130km race out of 21st. With rain on the forecast it could be an interesting day for racing!
