THE RECAP & WORD FROM NICK / MACAULEY

It was a wet start to the Bathurst weekend as rain set in for the opening day of practice here at Mount Panorama. The Repco Authorised Service Supercar was on track for all three practice sessions, where as some teams opted to stay in the garage due to the tricky conditions.

More rain is on the forecast for tomorrow, however it is set to clear before the 40-minute qualifying session later in the afternoon. All drivers are eager to get in some laps in dry conditions so they can really start to push these Supercars to the limits, and make that all-important qualifying session count. Watch this space!

 

NICK

“It was a tough opening day due to the rain. My engineer Andrew was still keen to make the most of the sessions and try make a couple of changes to see if we could learn anything in the Repco Authorised Service Supercar. Some cars opted out of the sessions and didn’t even cut one lap; some that did go out only completed a handful of laps.”

“It will be interesting to see how we go if the rain continues like forecast for tomorrow. You’re not able to push these cars like you do in the dry conditions, but you need to get the most out of it. If qualify in the wet, it’ll put a lot of drivers on edge, a slip here could really cost you, you have to driver such a fine line – keeping it fast yet under control.”
