HI-TEC OILS RACING QUOTEBOARD

Mark McNally - #16 Hi-Tec Oils Holden Commodore:

"It's definitely a new challenge with all the new things like driver changes that come into the equation," said Mark McNally.

"Working with another driver on the same car and finding a set-up that suits you both involves a lot of compromise.

"But I'm really happy to be working with a fellow West Aussie in Tony Ricciardello and he's done a really good job testing today.

"I'm pleased with how it's all going and we have worked through a good, solid testing program today.

"We got some good speed out of the Hi-Tec Oils Commodore today and both found some consistency, so it's looking good for Phillip Island."

Tony Ricciardello - #16 Hi-Tec Oils Holden Commodore:

"We've been playing around with seating positions between myself and Mark and just trying to get a good compromise for both of us ahead of Phillip Island," said Tony Ricciardello.

"I'm looking forward to these events and we've had a very productive day today.

"Adjusting to the V8 Supercar back from the Sports Sedan, I've had to relearn a few things in terms of braking and cornering with the help of Oscar (Fiorinotto, #16 Race Engineer) and Todd and Rick (Kelly).

"We've been making progress all day working on our times and it has been a while since I have driven these things in anger, so I'm starting to really feel comfortable after today."
