“We had a few issues in the first practice session but the boys worked really hard to fix them up for session two. It ended up being a pretty good day,” said John Martin.
“We’ll have to wait for tomorrow to see where we are. We’ve been in the top five for practice for most of the year, but Tailem Bend was really good with the victory.
“Things are starting to click and steps are going in the right direction for our Hondas.”

“It’s a fantastic opening day for us at Queensland Raceway. It has rolled out of the truck perfectly,” said Dylan O'Keeffe.
“We are still trying to make changes to the car because you should never stand still, otherwise, everyone will catch up to you.
“We probably went the wrong way with set-up in Practice 2. The car was quick but very hard to drive, and we had a moment and went off at the last turn and into the gravel. At least we know the car has potential for tomorrow.”

“It was a good start. Obviously this level is very high. There are some top guns of the V8 Supercars here, so I came here with a lot of respect,” said Jean Karl Vernay.
“I had to learn the track. There’s not many corners to this track, but it is pretty difficult and bumpy and technical. There’s long corners, heavy braking, kerbs you can’t touch and kerbs you have to avoid. It’s not that easy and you need experience, but my team and engineer are making progress, so now the things is to get ready for tomorrow.”
