THE WORD FROM TIM

The tight Townsville circuit provided plenty of action today, however not the kind that Freightliner Racing and Tim Slade wanted to be a part of. On the opening lap a number of cars attempted to get through turn 3 at the same time, with some drivers going 3 or 4 cars wide, creating a concertina affect. Tim was caught out, suffering heavy body damage to the front and rear of his car from being wedged between Fabian Coulthard and Garth Tander. They weren’t the only drivers caught up in the incident, however the damage was enough to see Tim pit on lap one for repairs. The team were impressive in their repairs, instantly making the TV highlights reel by body slamming the bonnet back down so Tim could resume the race. Tim re-joined a lap down and finished the race in 20th position. The team will regroup overnight, look to go one position better in qualifying tomorrow to make the top ten shootout and finish the weekend with a solid result.
