LIVE DIARY: TEST DAY

Tuesday 7th June

5:30pm – That’s a wrap. A solid Test Day allowed us to get some good runs on the board ahead of Darwin. Both cars once again showed great pace and performance.

3:54pm – Still running smoothly. We don’t want to jinx anything, but today has been pretty hassle free.

2:03pm – The wind is picking up on track as the temp starts to cool off again. Lee Holdsworth has taken car #88 for a spin, returning the favour from earlier in the year.

1:00pm – We went LIVE! Check out the real behind the scenes action from the Test Day below.

Join us behind the scenes at our Test Day at QR.

12:02am – We will be going LIVE on Facebook in less than 30 minutes. Make sure you’ve posted any questions you want our drivers to answer onto our Facebook page.

10;31am – RBRA OVERHEARD – Dutto on the track – “It is extremely dirty. After all the rain and violent weather over the weekend, the track is pretty messy.”

9:33am – Going anti-clockwise also means flipping pitstops. Everyone rotates

pit.

9:03am – We have kicked off testing. Cars will be running anti-clockwise to start with today ahead of the Darwin round.

8:00am – Oh yes. Marios egg and bacon burgers hit the spot.

6:15am – We have landed at QR on a very frosty morning (well, 11 degrees, but that’s cold for Brisbane) and we are ready to hit the track for a 9:00am start.
