“We had consistent qualifying across the whole weekend which was good, and I think our weekend in general was pretty consistent. We’ve had some good results, but it’s also been a little bit up and down. Obviously getting a second-row start was good, but overall I’m reasonably happy with those performances. The last race today was super wet – I normally enjoy racing in the wet, but I’ve only done three laps on the wet Dunlops before so it was pretty exciting. I had really good speed at the start and got to second, and I was right behind Cam (Waters) but I locked up and came off which totally sucks. We had really good pace at that stage and we were looking really strong, so to stuff up was really disappointing. I had a good comeback and passed a lot of guys and had really good speed, so there’s a lot of positives to take out of today, and it’s been our most consistent weekend overall. We also managed to bank a good chuck of points, so there’s plenty of things to be happy about, but it sucks because I feel like it’s the one that got away.”

“It’s obviously a great weekend when you walk away with 315 points, including three fastest lap results. Today’s race in the wet was really, really fun. I was laughing a lot, but I was having to concentrate a lot as well, and also be mindful that Cam (Waters) had his mind set on winning the race, so I was trying to race clean. Every time I passed him, he passed me back cleanly, so I was having a ball. This track is very hard to read when it’s wet, and I was trying to follow exactly what Cam did and follow his train tracks but do it better; brake later and try to use more grip. When I managed to get in front, I’d lose confidence and he’d manage to get me back. It took a bit to figure out but we had a lot of fun out there. It was also great to claim the manufacturers title this weekend for Holden and GM. The brand still means a lot to a lot of people so it’s really cool to represent them. We have some big races coming up including Bathurst, Pukekohe and Adelaide where it will be Holden’s last showing, so hopefully we can send the Holden badge out in a good way.”
