Sunday Post-Race Quotes

Airton Dare, #1 Banestado Lola - Finished 12th/Championship Rank - 9th:

"I damaged my front wing at the start and had to pit to replace it and the right front tire. At that point I had nothing to lose. I was pushing really hard, but we were a lap down. We started strong, but the second half of the season has not been good for us."

Guy Smith, #6 Swift Caravans Lola - Finished 4th/Championship Rank - 7th:

"I was pleased with the start. I was pushing hard to try to get away from Didier (Andre). When I came to Turn 6, apparently it was covered in dust and I took the turn as I normally would, hit the dust and went straight on. Obviously I was disappointed for that to happen, but it was out of my control. The car wasn't as good as we've had it. I had quite a lot of understeer. I don't know if something happened when I went off or not."

Top-Five Finishers:

1. Didier Andre 2. Scott Dixon 3. Jonny Kane 4. Guy Smith 5. Casey Mears
