Post-Race Quotes

Airton Dare, #1 Banestado Lola - Finished 5th:

"The car was good. I could do the same lap times as the leaders, but I would lose front downforce when I got close to another car. I couldn't pass. We gained a few points and narrowed the gap to first to six points. It's a real battle for top position right now and the next few races should be interesting."

Guy Smith, #6 Swift Caravans Lola - Finished 11th:

"It was a tough day for us.  I had too much front grip and the steering
was heavy.  It got worse and worse as the race went on."
