CHAMPCAR/CART: Team Gordon Gold Coast Friday Practice Notes

Robby Gordon #22 Johns Manville/Panasonic/Menards Toyota-Swift First-Round Qualifying time - 94.674 seconds First-Round Qualifying position - 14th

ROBBY GORDON ­ "We're having a hard time smoothing out the rough ride here. It's wild out there, I feel like I'm fighting a grizzly bear in every corner. Part of that is the track, but part of that is also us trying to come up with a better shock setup. At times, it's so bumpy I can barely see.

The biggest thing for us right now is to sort out the bumps and keep the car from jumping as much when I run through the chicanes. If we can do that we'll be in much better shape. Even at that though, the session wasn't too bad. We ended up 14th. The bummer was my last lap put us 13th and in the fast group for tomorrow, but Helio came through as the last guy in the session and beat us to drop us down. It would have been nice to be able to take advantage of all the rubber in the late session Saturday."
