2:20.9 was the fastest time set by Shedden in the morning session.

“The thing with a 12 hour race is it’s all about getting to the end. You just want the car to stay in 1 piece for the first 11 hours and then it’s all about the last 30 minutes. I’m really happy with the car, it’s doing everything it’s supposed to do. We’re i n a good place and that’s all you can ask for.” Said Shedden

“I’m feeling very confident for tomorrow, the lap times tend to fall off in this mighty heat but we’re confident that we can go faster tomorrow with more time at the wheel. I’m looking forward to standing on the podium thanks to our sponsors compareinsurance.com.au!” Said Pete storey.”

“ We’ve had lots of red flags and crashes today which shortened session time so we only got a handful of laps in Quali 1. Quali 2 we wanted to use for seat time for Pete and Ben, but with 70 degree track temperature this played havoc with grip and a few systems. We’ve seen a lot of over enthusiastic driving in qualifying, with at least 3 cars having to pull out of the race already. I thought this was an endurance race!” Said Motionsport Team Principal, Simon Phillips

“I was a bit apprehensive getting into the car with the high in-car temperature. I only managed to get 1 decent lap at 2:25. Towards the end of the session we got a bit of front brake fade. This was a bit spooky going over skyline as the rears would snatch a little when trying to load up the front.” Said Ben Gower.

It’s a long day tomorrow, and the team are hoping to put everything they’ve learnt in qualifying to good use.
