BROC FEENEY – DRIVER
“I am absolutely rooted after today. There were two practice sessions, qualifying and I had a Super2 race as well. It’s taken it out of me.”
“We made the car a lot better today and it was great out there during qualifying. I just made a couple of mistakes at different times that ultimately cost us.”
“My co-driver is doing well, the team is doing well, so now all focus is on Sunday. It’s still Friday, there is a long time still between now and when the race starts.”
RUSSELL INGALL – DRIVER
“Today was a big day. It’s being out there for practice and then getting everything in order for qualifying.”
“The team did an incredible job. To do a 2:04:8 around here is amazing.”
“I know Broc is disappointed not to have got into the 10 but he gave it a crack and now our focus is solely on Sunday.”
