Wills Disappointed As First Race Ends In Shunt.

Cat racings Simon Wills was disappointed at being shunted off the circuit 2 laps from home by John Bowe's Oze Mail Falcon. "The Cat Falcon was performing well, although not being able to transfer the power to the ground coming out of the corners did pose a problem " said Simon. Holding 17th position entering the second lastlap, Simon found himself spinning off the track after being hit from behind and found himself relegated to 27th position.

"I'm now focussed on tomorrow's race where I know I can improve on today's result , "he said. "The competition is very strong this year, highlighting many strong teams and driver combinations. I know we can make some subtle changes to improve the car's handling through the corners particularly. We have not been blessed with testing time and as a result must translate handling characteristics to improve the car's performance and must make adjustments here inorder to better perfect the car's handling for this circuit. I'm confident that continuous improvment will occur and allow me to improve my position in each event." Simon's fastest lap in today's event was 2.02.525 on lap 6.
