THE RECAP AND WORD FROM TIM / ASH

Ash Walsh got the Tasmania practice sessions underway, driving the Freightliner Racing Supercar in the additional driver session. They were his first laps behind the wheel for 2019, and he was excited to be back.

 

Tim completed the further two practice sessions, with today’s second session determining the starting order for the knockout qualifying format. As expected, the times were incredibly close, with the entire field covered by less than a second. Tim will be in the first group of fifteen drivers (those who place 11th-25th) and the top five from that session will progress forward.

 

For the latest updates as they happen be sure to follow the live timing available through the Supercars website or via the Freightliner Racing page on Facebook.

 

TIM

“We didn’t quite get the speed from the car that we wanted today, we’ll go through the data from today and hopefully make it better for qualifying and the race tomorrow.”

“Hopefully our car is fast for qualifying and we don’t have to use an extra set of tyres in the first or second segment of the knockout rounds.”

 

ASH

“The additional driver session was pretty good, and I was happy to finish the session in 8th. I felt like the car has improved in a couple of areas since last year. A few more laps would have been nice!”
