DRIVER JAMES MOFFAT.
After second outright at the Bathurst 1000 just two weeks before, James Moffat and co-driver Taz Douglas endured a contrasting weekend on the streets of Surfers Paradise.
Struggling to extract speed from their #360 Norton Hornet Nissan Ultima, James and Taz finished a frustrated 14th in Saturday's first leg of the season's final endurance round.
And then on Sunday in the final leg, after a promising show of speed in qualifying, they were dropped down the field by pitlane stacking, before James crashed heavily just after half-distance.
"A weekend to forget for us we struggled to unlock true speed from the car and had to over-drive to get any sort of pace, and it showed. The accident was just an error (of mine) but I really feel bad for the boys, because there's a big repair job to do," James Moffat said.
"We move onto Phillip Island and hopefully find better form."
- Inside the Top 10 on pace immediately
- Brush with the wall slows progress
- Co-driver Douglas gets two sessions
"I scuffed up the side of my car in the last session pushing a bit too hard. Taz did a good job in his co-drivers sessions. He didn't make a mistake and he's feeling confident in the car. We'll have a think about the car now and try and fix it up for tomorrow."
