A Disappointing Race for Team ADVAM/GB

An engine problem cut Team ADVAM/GB’s day short during race two of the Gold Coast 600 today.

Main driver Dale Wood found the car difficult to handle in the morning’s qualifying session – battling to put a lap together and finishing in 25th position on the grid.

Co-driver Chris Pither started the race and put together a solid opening stint, handing the car over to Wood on lap 36 from a midfield position that presented a promising opportunity to finish the race strongly.

Unfortunately the Team ADVAM/GB VF Commodore ground to a halt just two laps later with a terminal engine problem.

Dale Wood:

“It’s really disappointing because it looked like we were shaping up for a pretty good race. We’ll hopefully come back stronger at Phillip Island.”

Chris Pither:

“I was pretty happy with the car today, it definitely felt like it was better than yesterday. We had a good clean start and made up a few positions and we had a nice straight car that felt quite competitive. Unfortunately we had an engine drama which put us out. We’ve been really unlucky this season in the enduros. There was quite a bit of potential there in all the rounds and I was hoping for a good result but it wasn’t to be.”

Jamie Whincup and Paul Dumbrell won the race today.

The V8 Supercar Championship resumes for round 13 at Phillip Island in mid-November.
