Erebus Motorsport general manager Barry Ryan is confident the engineering of the car has been improved ahead of this weekend’s WD-40 Phillip Island SuperSprint.
“The first three events allowed us to capture valuable data ahead of this weekend’s round in Phillip Island. Campbell Little and I have worked closely over the past two weeks and we are both confident the car set up is moving in the right direction” said Ryan.
Ryan continued – “The entire team has worked selflessly during the first quarter. We will continue to unite and move forward and this weekend will give us another opportunity to grow and improve”.
David Reynolds understands that he needs to be patient as the team continues to engineer the Penrite Oil Hungry Jack’s Commodore.
“Getting the car right is a science and it takes time” said Reynolds. “We are learning about the car each and every time I get in it. Campbell, Barry and the team are working hard to find the best set up. I am really happy with the entire team’s commitment to Aaren and I”.
Reynolds is excited with the changes he has witnessed taking place. “What I was feeling in the car and voiced to the team following the races at Symmons Plains made sense after looking at some of the finer set up details we were able to extract from the data we acquired. I’m looking forward to getting in the car tomorrow and trying the new changes”.
This weekend will mark the second time Plus Fitness Go Karts Go Racing’s Aaren Russell hits the famous Phillip Island circuit and the Novocastrian knows he can improve on his performance in Tasmania.
“I am feeling more comfortable on and off the track. We have been going flat out since February and I am slowly finding my feet. It feels good knowing that I have raced this track before”.
Team owner Betty Klimenko understands her team’s position and complete faith that results will come if the team remains focused and patient.
“One thing I know is we need to be patient, I am so happy and proud of how hard everyone is working and the support we are getting from our sponsors. We just need to maintain our direction and tick each and every box one by one as we continue to build”.
Track action kicks off at 1:55pm Friday with two 60 minute practice sessions.
