THE WORD FROM BRAD

The competition was close for the final day of the season opening event, the Adelaide 500. The day started with qualifying, and only .042 of a second kept Tim out of todays’ Top Ten Shootout. Tim started from 11th, and shuffled back and forth through the field but a broken front roll bar saw his top ten finish slip from his grasp.

 

BRAD

“I felt Tim was having a pretty good run throughout todays’ race. For a while there he was stuck behind someone who was fuel saving and it was difficult to pass. He just couldn’t seem to get past him.”

“With about 15 laps to go, a front roll bar broke in the car. It took him a few laps to get it sorted out, and the pace eventually came back to him. Having that break massively changes the way the car handles and it enabled McLaughlin to move past on a much greener set of tyres.”

“I’m pretty happy to come home in 11th, considering what happened at the start of the race we dropped back a bit, we managed to get back those spots and finish just outside the top ten.”
