Broc Feeney – Car #88
“Today was probably one of my worst ever races. So much stuff went wrong throughout the race – I put it into the fence twice and ran off the track a few times but somehow, we finished eighth. It was the most out of control race I’ve ever been a part of. I’m not sure what it was like to watch from the grandstands, but it was full on to be a part of in the car. There were a lot of marbles just off the edge of the racing line, so if you were a tiny bit off-line or if you were trying to pass someone it was so easy to spear off. We had way too many mistakes, and it was really tough conditions to race in but one positive is that we have pace, so I have no doubt we’ll be more competitive tomorrow. I think I got lucky throughout the race. A lot of drivers had incidents which we managed to stay out of, but I was really frustrated with how I drove. We’ll come back swinging tomorrow.”

“I was pushing hard all race and obviously made a few mistakes today. Right from the start of the race the front roll bar was broken and was constantly dropping and dropping. The car was still handling itself ok, but I was pushing hard and things just didn’t quite work out. Sometimes you have to have a go, and I was really pushing hard. Chaz (Mostert) and I came together at one point and I was worse off after the collision, but it is what it is. Later on, I made an error and just missed the turn, hit the marbles which were pretty bad out there and unfortunately, I hit the fence. We need a big reset overnight, I need to do better, be calmer and make sure the car is straight so we can do a better job tomorrow.”
