PERKINS SEVENTH FASTEST WITH NEW RACE ENGINEER AT BARBAGALLO

Jack Perkins has scored his best Friday practice performance of the season with seventh fastest in final practice for the Bigpond 300 at Barbagallo Raceway in Perth, WA today.

Perkins worked well with new Race Engineer Stewart McDonald to set some fast lap times aboard the #11 BET 247 Holden Commodore, sitting as high as second on the timesheets in the final stages of practice.

McDonald joined Kelly Racing recently from Tasman Motorsport and is already finding feet in the engineering role, as shown by today's strong performance.

Jamie Whincup was fastest in final practice today at Barbagallo Raceway ahead of Fabian Coulthard and James Courtney.

WHAT JACK HAD TO SAY ...

Jack Perkins - #11 BET 247 Holden Commodore:

"It was a good day for the whole Dodo Racing Team," said Jack Perkins.

"We worked together really well and we had a really good day.

"Everything we did we made some improvements and got some good speed out of the car.

"It was a good session for everyone. It was really good and we worked together really well.

"We worked through a list of changes that 'Stewie' (ED: new Race Engineer Stewart McDonald) had prepared and to be honest I had one of the better days I've ever had in a practice Friday.

"It was just a good, solid day where we improved the speed of the #11 BET 247 Commodore and had some good consistency.

"We used better tyres at the end of the day but we've still got heaps for qualifying so it should be good."
