Airton Dare, #1 Banestado Lola - Qualified 7th:

"I had oversteer on the exit of Turn 6. I corrected but I made a mistake and put a wheel on the grass and hit the tire wall. Because of the eight-minute penalty for causing a red flag, we were not able to go back out on new tires. We have a good car and hopefully we can show that tomorrow."

Guy Smith, #6 Swift Caravans Lola - Qualified 8th:

"The car is pretty good, but we didn't get a clear run on new tires. I'm confident we'll be better tomorrow."
