BEST START YES FOR MCNALLY IN V8 UTES
Glenn McNally had his best start yet to a V8 Utes round today after being just four tenths of a second off the fastest time in practice 2 today at Darwin's Hidden Valley Raceway.
Darwin being a happy hunting ground for Glenn in the past, the West Australian was expecting a lot this weekend.
The first practice session threw up its own set of problems when Glenn suffered a loose steering rack which left Glenn sitting in the garage for the last third of the session.
He was still able to score tenth fastest time in the session despite not being on the track when the fastest times were being set.
"I knew that I had a fair bit left in myself out there but just didn't get the chance to show it," Glenn said after the first session.
The second session was where Glenn shone as he sat in fourth place for much of the session, only dropping to sixth after a severe flat spotted tyre.
"I pushed a bit hard at the end on the straight in an effort to see how deep I could go under brakes.
"I definitely found the limit but also fried a tyre in the process," he said.
With qualifying tomorrow Glenn should benefit from a new set of tyres and has high expectations for his performance.
"Top five is where I am aiming but it is going to be really difficult; I suppose if I make the top ten to will be considered a pass mark but I really want to be higher than that."
With a good record at the circuit Glenn feels that this weekend is his opportunity to make a big step forward in the category.
"Our car goes good here and the team has a good set-up for this circuit.
"I am going home for a good night's sleep before having a real crack tomorrow."
