Broc Feeney – Car #88
“These practice sessions feel so short because you only really get four short runs, so you really need to maximise every opportunity you have because it goes super quick. There’s certainly going to be a lot of challenges come race time, and as always the entire field is super close so we have a bit of pace to find that’s for sure. I think the deg of the tyres is going to be quite high with these cars, and there’s lots of rubber off the racing line which means there’s going to be a lot of pick up in the race, so they’re some of the challenges everyone will be facing. 88 laps is a bloody long way and its hot up here, but everyone’s in the same boat. Our qualifying run at the end of practice went ok – we’re still missing a little bit, but we’re somewhat in the mix. I think another tenth puts us somewhere in the top two, but we’re quite a long way off the quickest, so we still have a bit to find.”

“Today didn’t go our way unfortunately. We seem to have the same issues as what we had in Darwin, so instead of trying to utilise our practice sessions to make the car faster, we’re fixing issues which is a real shame, it’s gutting. The car is obviously fast, but we’re focusing on errors and trying to make things better instead of focusing on speed, and it’s really puzzling. Our qualifying run at the end of the practice session was challenging as well. The car is not handling well at the braking zones and I’m having some steering issues down the straights which isn’t nice. We’ll work on those issues tonight and hopefully make some changes to the car so we can focus on racing rather than issues.”
