Erebus Motorsport admits it has its work cut out, but is positive the weekend was rewarding.
The 4th and final race ended prematurely for Reynolds as another car moved across on him in turn one of the start – “I held my line and he turned in hard from the outside. The impact broke a wheel and bent several things on the car. There was nothing to gain staying out there” said Reynolds.
Aaren Russell made several inroads throughout the weekend and is positive his time in the car was valuable – “It’s a tough field, I made a pass, made some advancements and felt more comfortable as the weekend went on”.
The team has a short turn around before they head to Tasmania for round 2 of the V8 Supercars Championship.
General Manager Barry Ryan is optimistic that the team will progress and is positive that this weekend will prove valuable for Tasmania –
“The weekend will prove valuable as we prepare for the second round of the championship in Tasmania. This weekend is a non-championship event and we are encouraged by the amount of positive tests we performed on the car. We know exactly what Dave wants and with smart engineering and sensible tuning, Dave will be able to extract the performance he requires from the car to move up the grid. It’s unfortunate what happened in the final race as it wasn’t his fault”.
The team will head back to its headquarters in Melbourne to prepare for Tasmania. They have 5 days before the cars and transporter is required to be on the boat.
Next event: Tasmania 1-3 of April
