Race results

Bathurst, Mt Panorama, New South Wales

9-12 October 2008

  • Qual 2nd
  • Race 1 4th
Championship 2nd

The most famous racing circuit in Australia and the home of one of the world's greatest motor races - which is of course our grueling, six and a half hour and 1000 kilometre long test of man and machine at the amazing 6.2km Mount Panorama circuit. The fastest of all V8 Supercar circuits, with cars reaching close to 300kph along Conrod Straight, the Bathurst circuit has it all, from a tight and twisting climb to the top of the mountain, to a fast flip-flop ride down that rewards bravery behind the wheel. This circuit is without a doubt a complex engineering exercise to get the cars absolutely right for, considering that two drivers need to be comfortable with the car set up. I came to within 13 laps of winning it in 2007...

Post-race report

30 November -0001

Bathurst is a heartbreaker, we will conquer it one day. 4th place is still a good result, it was hard to loose a spot on the podium in the final laps, but you can only do your best with what you've got and the car just wasn't right today. I wont be surprised if the team find a problem back at the workshop. We are 33 points behind Whincup in the championship and I'm looking forward to the final 4 rounds.
