Broc Feeney – Car #88

“It’s been a pretty average day unfortunately. It started in qualifying and getting a few kerb strikes which was my fault. It was very hard to feel where I was at, and I kept getting those strikes. On a positive note, we would’ve been in the top ten which would have changed our day, but we weren’t and we’ll try again tomorrow. We were pretty equal with #97 in terms of pace in qualifying, but as I said, we kept triggering the kerb strikes and I was pretty disappointed to keep making those mistakes. Unfortunately we just didn’t have the pace in today’s race either. We’ll have a look at what Shane’s doing differently driving wise and have a look at a couple of differences. We went aggressive in the race, but unfortunately we didn’t have the pace, but we’ll try again tomorrow.”

“I suppose from the driver’s seat, today was pretty dull until the last stint. We were sort of racing around in clear air and then I came out behind Cam (Waters) and thought there was a chance – I didn’t realise how close we were. I tried to cruise at the start and then drove up to him slowly, but it was a cool last couple of laps. It was a shame I ran out of time or left my run too late, but it was a fun battle. The aim tomorrow is to qualify a little better and get a better start. Dropping to fifth at the start today put me back a bit, but we weren’t very fast at the start and I really had nothing. I need to be better earlier in the race tomorrow and hopefully we can get some good points again.”
