Rain makes for a frustrating first day at Surfers Paradise

After rain during the morning practice session, Friday's first qualifying session at Surfers Paradise capped a frustrating day for the RuSPORT team.

The track didn't dry sufficiently for flat-out running on slicks and Justin ended up a provisional 14th on the grid while team-mate A.J. Allmendinger posted the 11th fastest time. Sebastien Bourdais clinched the 2005 Drivers Championship by setting provisional pole.

The forecast for Saturday and Sunday is for blue skies and Justin is hoping that some solid dry running on Saturday morning will give him a shot at a decent qualifying position for Sunday's race.
