THE WORD FROM NICK

It was a solid day for the guys at Boost Mobile Racing, with Nick and Macauley both spending a bit of time behind the wheel and getting re-acquainted with the famous Mount Panorama circuit. For Bathurst winner and multiple podium visitor Percat, he was excited as he exited the car after the final practice session, saying it was the best Supercar he’s driven around the circuit. Tomorrow the final practice sessions will be held before qualifying, and the team are keen to open up the Boost Mobile Commodore even more to see what she can do.

NICK

“For us, it was a good day. We struggled a little bit early, but I think that was me getting used to this car around here, it was brilliant. It’s the fastest I’ve ever gone around here, the car is different to anything I’ve ever driven around the mountain.”

“The car is getting more comfortable to drive with the more laps I get to do, and Macauley did a good job in his session earlier as well. So far so good, the Boost Mobile Commodore is comfortable and I’m pretty happy.”

“Over the other side of the garage – in the Freightliner Racing garage there is an incredible effort happening behind the scenes here after the big accident this morning. I’ve been watching the team work away; they are very methodical about it all, there is no mess, no panic, they just work through this plan and I know they’ll get it all done for the guys and have them back on track tomorrow. It’s pretty amazing. It’s a real credit to the team to see how well they deal with these kinds of things.”
