Get the rEcap from SVG & JDub’s Races last night at Phillip Island and Interlagos! 🇦🇺🇧🇷
"We had another awesome night last night. I was able to continue the momentum from last week into the first race at Phillip Island. It wasn’t an easy race as everyone has improved from Round 1 so much, but I was able to hold off Anton (de Pasquale) again at the finish line to get the win. We then headed to Interlagos which is a pretty cool track. I was able to get a podium in the first race there which put me at the back for the reverse grid race. The start of Race 3 was hectic. Somehow, I managed to weave my way through all the carnage on the first lap and gained a fair few spots. I had another great battle with Scotty (McLaughlin) towards the end after I did my last pit stop. I think our strategy worked well for that race and was able to claim another win, and another cheque for Wings for Life."
"To be honest, I felt like I made a massive improvement last night. I got some help from Brodie Kostecki during the week who helped tune my sim, as I realised there were so many things I was doing wrong. Simple things like not enough resolution on the screen, tyre noise was turned right down and a few other small things that made a huge difference. I was much happier driving the car last night – it was much more realistic, but unfortunately for me the whole field stepped up last night and we were all much quicker. If you look at the times last night compared to the first week, it’s crazy different – everyone’s really competitive now. We generally moved forward in the races which was good, and to finish 14th and 13th in the last two races was a good gain from the week before. I’ll keep cracking on this week with some more laps and see if we can improve again next week. Well done to SVG too, he’s looking really good out there."
