RECAP – We finished the third practice in 10th and felt strong going into qualifying. Unfortunately, qualifying didn’t go to plan and we missed the opportunity to progress through to the second qualifying session because we left our run to late.
The team accepted the fault and regrouped to focus on the 120km race.
Tim started well and moved to 13th early in the race. The team decided on a late pitstop that relegated Tim to 14th. Overall it was a positive result as he moved up 3 positions.
