Well I certainly had an interesting weekend at Sandown. I kicked off the weekend with P3 and P4 in Friday’s practice sessions and was wrapped with how the car felt. It was super cold and wet, but it was awesome fun to get the wets on and have a spin in the rain!
Saturday’s qualifying session, I managed to put the car on the second row of the grid, in fourth – which I was stoked with! Race 1 was awesome fun; I was able to get a strong race start, which helped to keep me in the pack with the front-runners. I could see Vidau and Fallon battling it out and on lap 13 saw my opportunity to take second ahead of Vidau, whilst Fallon claimed first. I was absolutely wrapped with P2!
Unfortunately, Race 2 I made a mistake at turn 6/7 and made contact with the fence, forcing me out of the race. We had hopes to get the car back out for Race 3, but unfortunately there was just too much damage! But, that’s racing I guess! I live and learn from the mistakes and it makes me even more eager to get back behind the wheel for the next race!
A huge thanks to the crew at Wall Racing for such an awesome car and for all your hard work! I would like to give a massive thank you to all of my incredible sponsors for all of their help and support this year, without you I wouldn’t be where I am today.
Bring on Phillip Island July 1 – 3 June 2018!
Hope to see you at the track!
