WILSON FIGHTS THROUGH FIELD IN RACE TWO
Max Wilson driving the WOW racing car #45 had a horror first race of the day with the car failing to start when positioned on the starting grid.
The car was pushed to start then requiring it to start the first 36-lap race of the day from pit lane.
A clearly disappointed Wilson said "That wasn't the best outcome of any of my races so far, dropping from 13th position on the grid to start at the back of the grid put me to a distinct disadvantage and made the job almost impossible to make up that many places in 36 laps".
"The team found a problem with the flywheel on the car that prevented the starter motor from engaging, unfortunately these things happen in racing and I guess today just wasn't our day".
"Finishing in 30th place for the first race hasn't helped my points standing to any great degree, however the important thing was to finish the race".
"Race two gave me a better opportunity to gain valuable ground early in the race allowing me to work my way through the field from 30th starting position, into 16th spot, a position I was able to maintain through to the final flag" - said Wilson.
'"The team has done a great job in preparing the car, and as we gain more resources for the team, I know we will be more competitive out on the circuit, really I don't think that situation is very far away".
"We all have to focus now on the next big round at Shanghai China in just two weeks, I'm looking forward to that experience and I believe the circuit is very special".
Wow Racing finished Round 4 in 20th position on the round points table with 78 points, whilst placing the team in 24th. spot in the Championship table.
Round 4 this weekend was taken out by Craig Lowndes in the Betta Electrical Ford, placing second in race 1 and winning race two, stepping up to fourth position on the Championship points table with 554 points, behind Steven Richards, Russell Ingall and Marcos Ambrose who is leading the Championship with 708 points.
