MCNALLY BACK IN THE TOP TEN AT GOLD COAST V8 UTES

Rhys McNally has made a welcome return to the top ten in the V8 Utes at the Gold Coast street circuit this weekend where he has qualified 9trh.

After finishing 14th at Bathurst two weeks ago, Rhys was keen to push back into the top ten where he has been on a number of occasions this season.

Practice 1 saw Rhys finish 18th fastest as he familiarised himself with the tight, concrete-lined circuit, but it was qualifying where he shone the brightest - 9th fastest.

"The car is good," he aid.

"This is a daunting place, there are tyre bundles everywhere and concrete walls on aggressive angles.

"I want to keep stepping it up as the weekend goes by, but racing clean here is the most important."

With limited passing opportunities and concrete everywhere it will be important not to make an error on this circuit.

"If I can keep my nose clean I should be able to do well here; I am confident in the car and happy to be racing up the front with the faster guys."

Rhys has one race on Saturday and two on Sunday.
