RACE DAY RECAP
This morning’s overcast conditions helped drivers get a grip on todays’ opening practice session; then the sun was shining for the first time in Townsville this weekend as teams rolled out for qualifying. Even with the change in conditions, it saw Tim post almost identical times in the Freightliner Racing Supercar for both sessions, but with very different outcomes on the leaderboard.
Tim started todays 200-kilometre race from 16th, which marked a milestone 600th Supercar race for the Brad Jones Racing team. The race saw a few early battles, Tim trading places back and forth with a few of the drivers.
In a Townsville Supercar first, every single car finished the race! Something that has never happened in the previous 21 races held here at the Reid Park circuit. Tim brought the Freightliner Racing Supercar home in 16th.
“It was a battle to move forward out there today, my team-mates Nick, Macauley and I all agreed - it was one of the toughest races we’ve done in a while due to the heat, intensity and track conditions. We really need to find more grip and get those lap times down tomorrow, so we’ll work on improving our package overnight and have another crack at it tomorrow.”
