Broc Feeney – Car #88
“It was a real shame to see Shane’s race and his championship fight come to a close very quickly at the start. We moved forward from the start and got stuck in a battle with (Will) Davison for the first half of the race which I think cost us quite a bit of time. In the last stint in clean air, I think we were really fast. We were really strong towards the end of the stints and I was just having heaps of fun out there and was enjoying the battles with both Brodie (Kostecki) and Chaz (Mostert). The car was fast and we beat the guys we’re battling at the moment, and I think if we can qualify up the front tomorrow we can certainly take it to the other cars. We obviously still have the Teams’ Championship to battle for tomorrow. We’re still a long way behind but it was good to get those extra points on Brodie (Kostecki) and make it a little bit closer. I’m just going to go out tomorrow and try and replicate last year.”

Shane van Gisbergen – Car #97
“Firstly, congratulations to Brodie (Kostecki) and the entire Erebus team for their championship win. It’s pretty deflating the way today’s race ended, but that’s the way these things happen sometimes. The car isn’t looking too bad and I have full confidence that the crew can get it back to one hundred percent tomorrow – it would be nice to finish off the year with a good result. Broc did a fantastic job and managed to close the gap in the Teams’ Championship, so that’s our full focus tomorrow.”
