RACE 31 / 250KMS / 95 LAPS
TIME: 16:15-18:13
CONDITIONS: Dry, warm
FINISHED: Position 9th
WINNER: Shane Van Gisbergen
RECAP: Tim started Race 31 off well getting a great start and drama free. On a different strategy to his stable mates, Tim stayed out on a longer stint before coming into pit. Ultimately being a great decision and keeping Tim up within the top ten for the duration of the race.
 
With a Safety Car free race, Tim remained on this strategy to get him through to the end. Sitting in P7 Tim came into contact with Scott Pye as he entered turn 8, this nudge bumping him down the grid.
 
A tremendous drive by Tim and great work from all the team. One last day on track for the 2019 season, Tim and the team are eager to keep this result going into tomorrow.

 
 THE WORD FROM TIM
“I felt good out there today and had a positive day on track. It’s been a while since I’ve been in the top ten so I’m pretty stoked to have gotten up there and been a part of the shootout.
 
A few little tweaks we will make to the car overnight but no real big changes. Hopefully we are back in the ten tomorrow for the final day.”
