THE RECAP 
The retro CoolDrive livery was getting plenty of attention on track and TV, as it brings back a lot of great racing memories for the Supercars fans. Many fans arguing it’s the best retro livery on track this weekend.
 
The co-drivers spent most of the time behind the wheel today for the opening practice sessions at the Sandown 500. Dale Wood doing a solid job behind the wheel, finishing inside the top twenty in both sessions, but is eager to work together with Tim to unlock some more speed for tomorrow. With rain and potential thunderstorms forecast tomorrow, it could make for some very interesting qualifying races!
 
THE WORD FROM DALE
“I don’t think we’ve hit the sweet spot with the car yet, we’re still on the hunt for the pace that we need. I think the likes of turn two three four are really hurting us and turn nine ten elven are weak as well. We’ve got a bit of work to do yet.”
