Practice Makes Perfect In Perth For Jack Daniel's Racing
The Jack Daniel's Racing Nissan Altimas of Rick and Todd Kelly had a learning practice day at Barbagallo Raceway today, ahead of this weekend's V8 Supercars Perth 400.
Although Rick and Todd finishing 21st and 25th overall respectively after 60 minutes of running, Rick was as high as tenth quickest in the second session, with the duo trying out multiple different setups on the unique track surface.
Saturday on track action features a pair of 10-minute long qualifying sessions, followed by two 100km races.
JACK DANIEL'S RACING QUOTEBOARD
RICK KELLY - #15 Jack Daniel's Racing Nissan Altima:
Practice 1- 12th
Practice 2- 10th
Practice 3- 21st
Overall Practice- 21st
"It was a really up and down day for us," said Rick Kelly.
"We started out pretty reasonable, we ran pretty good tyres today and tried a lot of different things with the car.
"We got the car to quite a reasonable spot I think, and had reasonable pace.
"We tried a few things in that last session to make up for the bit that we were lacking, but unfortunately I think we went the wrong way.
"We put on good tyres at the end, and it shot us backwards at a million miles an hour.
"If anything, we learned what not to do which is good, because generally we are pretty conservative, but we really wanted to learn about the car and make a gain.
"I think we achieved that here today, and we've got a good direction for tomorrow and know what we really need, because Barbagallo is very different to everywhere else we go."
TODD KELLY - #7 Jack Daniel's Racing Nissan Altima:
Practice 1- 25th
Practice 2- 24th
Practice 3- 25th
Overall Practice- 25th
"We didn't get a good run, or really a run at all in the end of the final session on the only set of decent tyres we had for the day," said Todd Kelly.
"We only had one lap before the chequered flag to do it, so it's a shame we don't really know where we are.
"It has been a bit of a struggle to be honest, the lap times just aren't there.
"There's a little thing here or there with the car, but it's not going to move us 25 spots up the grid, so we've got quite a bit of work to do overnight to put our finger on where the issue is."
