THE RECAP

With the endurance season quickly approaching, today’s practice sessions saw the second additional driver session of 2018. Tim Slade’s co-driver Ash Walsh had 30 minutes behind the wheel, and with fine and clear conditions, co-drivers were able to get a good feel for the cars they will be campaigning soon in the biggest races of the year.

 

Tim Slade finished off the day with another 2 x 45 minute practice sessions, with another on the agenda tomorrow morning before qualifying and the first race of the weekend.

 

THE WORD FROM ASH

“It was great to be behind the wheel of the Freightliner Racing Commodore and get a feel for the car again. There are a few things that haven’t changed from last year; simple things like the seat is the same, dials are the same so you feel comfortable straight away.”

“The aero balance is a little different to last year. We went through a couple of different setup changes and tyre changes, so it felt like the session was over pretty quickly! It was nice to have dry conditions for todays practice session (in comparison to a very wet Winton Motor Raceway) as you really got a better feel for the car, it helps that I’ve done plenty of laps around here in the past too.”

“For us today it was just ticking the boxes in the lead up to the endurance season, getting comfortable again with the car and building confidence.”
