MCNALLY ON THE CHARGE IN V8 UTES AT DARWIN

Glenn McNally continued his strong form today at Darwin's hidden Valley Raceway where he qualified 6th and finished 5th in race 1.

After an impressive performance in practice yesterday Glenn was ready for a big day today at one of his favourite circuits.

Qualifying went well for Glenn where he was positioned fifth for most of the session until being beaten by Layton Cranbrook on the last lap which relegated Glenn to 6th.

"I was so close to my target of the top five," Glenn said.

"Sixth will have to do; I am only four tenths off pole position which is as close as I have been."

Race 1 saw Glenn get caught behind Jack Elsegood on the first lap and loose substantial ground to the pack up front.

Mid-race Glenn was able to forge his way past Elsegood and into fifth position and get on with the chase of the leading pack.

"I was able to close the gap to Andrew Miedecke over the last part of the race," Glenn said.

"It gave me confidence in the car and the speed that I had which will help me tomorrow."

Glenn will start form grid 12 for tomorrow's reverse-top-16 race, the fartest back to date.

"It is my first genuine reverse grid start, I need to get as far up as I can," he said.

"I already have a good swag of points from qualifying and race 1 so I need to continue to do well tomorrow if I am going to make it onto the podium.

"Let's just see how it pans out."
