DRIVER JAMES MOFFAT.
James Moffat endured a tough initiation into the Volvo/GRM Team at Adelaide's opening round of the 2016 V8 Supercar Championship season.
Racing the Volvo S60 for the first time, James spent the weekend learning the car and the team, to understand how to extract speed from the new combination.
"It's a frustrating start to the season, certainly not what I'd hoped for, so there's work to do no doubt," James Moffat said.
"The Volvo is totally different to what I've been driving (previously), it requires a different style, and I don't fully understand it yet. I also need to understand how it reacts when we make changes, so that'll be the focus next.
"The engine is great, it's a good crew and a great (team) environment … I am just keen to get on with it. I wish we were racing again this weekend!"
- Season underway in hot, humid conditions

"The car is so different to what I am used to. I am not comfortable (yet) with the braking package and with the rear grip, and (at the moment) I am basically trying to drive Scotty's setup and it's not working for me. We're going to make some changes for tomorrow morning and see if we can get it a bit more to my liking."READ MORE
