PERSONAL BEST FOR 2011
Confidence is the name of the V8 Supercar game according to Karl Reindler and a solid 11th place in today's practice at Barbagallo Raceway has given him plenty.
The Fair Dinkum Sheds Racing driver was especially pleased to get his best practice result of the year in front of a home crowd, including his mum who lives just down the road.
Qualifying starts tomorrow at 10.50am.

"That's my best practice result this season. I had a good crack at the end of that session and was reasonably happy. There are still a few improvements to come in the car and in myself putting a lap together but it's just very encouraging.
"A result like that gives me confidence and this game is all about confidence. If you can increase that going into qualifying you've got to be better off!"
"It was a great result for Karl. He's certainly very close to his first top ten. They've been on top of the car pretty much since the second practice session and he's a genuine chance for a top ten in qualifying tomorrow."
