A Tough Day with Little Reward for WSR at Homebush
The last race of the 2014 V8 Supercars Championship started off well with Scott Pye driving in his first Top 10 shootout to grab a 7th grid position. David Wall had a more difficult qualifying and would start further down the grid.
The race was once again dominated by weather conditions and eventually was red flagged on lap 44 out of a planned 74 lap race. Pye had struggled a little at the start with tyres he felt were under pressured and dropped back. He then had to pit twice after a short fuel fill, ruining his chances.
David Wall was battling with Dale Wood, but did not seem to be able to make progress on the wet or dry tyre.
All cars were back in the pits for wet weather tyres on Lap 38, but despite being fuelled to the finish, the race only went another 7 laps before the red flag was displayed. The storms had again arrived and stopped short the final race of the season.

“The car has been fantastic all weekend and the pace showed that. We just got screwed up with things that were out of our control. Today we bounced back well after a crash with Kelly. The guys did a great job fixing the car and making the Top 10 shootout was very satisfying.
For me it was good way to send off the year. I really enjoyed the racing this year after a tough 2013 and these DJR guys welcomed me and made me feel part of it.”

“It was taken out of my hands a little as I had to do another lap when the rain came before I could pit. It was good to get a Top 10 in the last outing with DJR and at least left on a bit of a high."
