Lowndesy’s Look: Darwin Saturday 2018

Saturday Wrap

The first race of the weekend is done and dusted and Lowndesy took the Autobarn Lowndes Racing Commodore from 12th on the start line to seventh through great car speed and an aggressive strategy. The aim for tomorrow? Secure out spot in the Top Ten Shootout and come away with some silverware!

Practice 3: 10th (Fastest Lap: 1:06.5656)
Qualifying: 12th (Fastest Lap: 1:06.2376)
Race 1: Seventh

“We’ve always had a good race car. I think today was all about trying to push forward and be aggressive on our strategy, which we were. We came in early and actually followed a few other cars in, which was probably a little bit surprising. Our tyre life was really good. We just got stuck behind Rick (Kelly) there for too long and of course, with the super soft tyre and that sort of situation, you use them up faster than you want to. We’re very pleased starting 12th to finish seventh. It’s good for our points, which is obviously what we want, but we’ve just got to work a bit harder for tomorrow, be in the top 10 to start with and make progress. Credit to the team, we made a very fast race car.”
