THE WORD FROM NICK

“Tomorrow we line up for the new elimination style qualifying sessions. It’s disappointing not to make the top ten today to get straight through to the second qualifying session, but if we’re in the top 6 of that first group going out, we’ll join that group and we’ll get another chance to fight for a top ten start.”

“The new qualifying format tomorrow will provide its share of challenges for the teams and drivers as its something new for everyone. I’m excited to see how it goes. “

“The first practice session for us was a bit of a test run, we tried a couple of things and found a few things that didn’t work for us. Whilst the time didn’t look great on paper, it wasn’t a concern as we learned what we needed to. The second session saw a couple of small errors which saw me off track and unfortunately cause a short red flag for everyone.”

“At a track like Symmons Plains it really doesn’t take much to put you back down the pack. An eighth of a second is all that separates first and last. We’ve regrouped already and discussed changes we want to make for tomorrows qualifying and race. We’re just looking for that extra tenth of a second, it might not seem like a lot, but here it is critical.”
