MG XPOWER Hot Wheels Racing

Weather / Track: Warm / Dry

Car No. 26
Anthony Reid, Warren Hughes, Jonny Kane 4th Overall / 1st in Class

From 1930 hours: Jonny Kane handed to Anthony Reid @ 2115

Jonny Kane: "Everything seems to be going OK so far. We're quick though not as fast as Anthony in qualifying. The track is getting better as the temperature comes down so I'm sure the other boys will improve. To be honest it's been quite comfortable and driver changeovers are nice and smooth. It's fantastic to be racing here, we're all doing a good job and hopefully it will stay like that."

Car No. 27
Mark Blundell, Julian Bailey, Kevin McGarrity 15 th Overall / 2nd in Class

From 1930 hours: Kevin McGarrity handed to Mark Blundell @ 2055

The car came into the pit on Lap 71 as it was lacking in power.

Kevin McGarrity: "After last year it's great to be driving in daylight and in dry conditions. I continue to find the same problem as Mark and Julian that the car is lacking power on the straights. The team called me in earlier than planned to check the alternator."

Confirmation - there was a broken wire on the alternator, which clearly effected the performance of the car.
