It was a tough weekend for the team at the Sandown 500, Qualifying on Saturday put us on the back foot when we missed out on the Top 10 Shootout.
We knew starting towards the rear of the grid meant it would be a big race ahead already, but on the opening lap Lee got caught up and the #25 sustained rear damage there.
The pit crew did an awesome job to keep Car 25 on the lead lap while fixing the damage across two separate stops and in the end, they cut away most of the rear bar which was dragging on the ground, making matters worse.
We struggled with Race pace and finished P22, it’s safe to say it’s not the result the team wanted our car just didn’t do what we wanted it to do all weekend. The whole WAU team and Lee gave everything they could all weekend to try and make something happen.
On a positive side, it always blows my mind the amount of support for WAU and myself so I just want to thank everyone for always being there for us through the ups and downs! It’s you guys, girls and little ones that help fuel us to keep fighting, so thank you.
To the team and my personal sponsors, the messages from you guys and girls means the world to me too!
Through a tough result we’re so lucky to represent you and we are hungrier then ever to get a much better result at the Bathurst 1000.
Till then, we’ll keep race prep up for the big one!
