Lockwood Racing's Coulthard 'feels' his way to sixth

In-car data screens are like a sixth-sense to V8 Supercar drivers but Lockwood Racing's Fabian Coulthard had to do without at Sydney Motorsport Park today.

With just tenths-of-a-second influencing how a race pans out, drivers rely on the data to tell them when to push. Coulthard's screen, however, did not work from lap one but he did not let it slow him down, launching off the grid from tenth to seventh by Turn Two.

He was then stuck behind David Reynolds for much of the race, before making the pass in the final stint to finish sixth.

The Season of Endurance gets underway at the next V8 Supercar round at Sandown Motor Raceway from September 14-16.
