“It’s always a great weekend when you’re disappointed with two podiums. Broc did a better job in both qualifying sessions which allowed him to get the two wins. I felt like I had a really fast car and did what I had to in both races, but ultimately up here in Darwin it’s very hard to pass, so if you don’t qualify well you’ll generally finish where you started. I was trying really hard in the closing stages of the race to pass Broc but I knew by the time I got to him I’d be short on tyre life. I got within a second but then I started to get some wheel spin and struggled. After that I knew it would be hard to close the gap further to make an attack, but overall I’m happy with the weekend we’ve had.”

“Technically we didn’t win the Darwin Triple Crown, but we won two races and a shootout, so I’ll certainly take that! I’m absolutely chuffed with my two wins. That one was really tough today and we certainly worked a lot harder for that one. Will (Brown) and the whole #87 crew did a great job and were super-fast, so we certainly pushed ourselves today and the gap to the rest of the field was quite large. It reminded me of SVG (Shane van Gisbergen) and JDub (Jamie Whincup) in Townsville in a few years ago when they gapped everyone by so much just racing each other. I’m just pumped with back-to-back wins for the first time in my career. Qualifying was great this weekend and to back it up in the races was awesome.”
