Prologue - Audio grabs

Eric Bana -- It felt terrible -- the tyres are brand spanking new, so we were just about steering off everywhere. It will be better once they scrub up a bit.

It felt really slow, but I was half expecting it -- it felt alright, it just didn't feel fast.

It will be fine once we get out on the faster stuff -- I haven't really set the car up for the street stages, so I'm not going to change anything.

Peter O'Keefe -- I got a lot of wheelspin -- I knew we'd be a few seconds shy of the fastest time because we were getting a bit much wheelspin in a few places.

It's been a few years and the prologue seemed tighter than I remembered it.

Matt Close -- We are always keen to do our best -- we like the prologue, so we always try.

This is our fourth year in Targa and we've always gone well in a much lower powered car, so we were pretty happy but a bit surprised.

We've put in some pretty respectable times over the past three years but for one reason or another we've had a bit of bad luck with mechanical problems.
