Race 1: 12th

Craig Lowndes - #888 Holden Commodore VF

"We qualified the car as well as we could knowing that we lost a session yesterday due to the crash. We didn't quite have the balance we wanted, didn't maximise it as much as we'd like. Starting 15th, we tried to stay out of trouble. We got caught up in the incident at turn two at the start and I actually got stuck in reserve. I couldn't get it out! Once we got going the car was really consistent. What the team did overnight was sensational and to have a fast car today was even better. It was consistent and looked after its tyres when everyone else was blowing them, so we'll take a lot out of today. The ending was obviously disappointing to get that 15 second time penalty. We know we had a fast car - I think we definitely could have been on the podium today. It's disappointing, but we'll take the positives, regroup tonight and look forward to tomorrow."
