Fast car but no luck for Wood

On a weekend that brought a career best qualifying and race finish for Team ADVAM/GB’s Dale Wood, the third and final race of the weekend would turn out to be a disappointment.

After his sensational third grid and finishing position in the first race on Saturday, Wood was confident in today’s feature race.

Starting 10th on the grid, Wood held position during the first stint, despite a touch with team mate Jason Bright.

Any chance of a good result was ruined, however, when the car started to lose oil pressure.

Wood was forced to bring the VF Commodore into the pits for repair and eventually finished last, four laps behind.

Dale Wood:

“We had really good pace but I really wanted to turn that race into a result because I think we could have. Obviously we missed out on a lot of points that you get for the longer races so it’s really disappointing.”

FPR's Mark Winterbottom won the race from James Courtney and Tim Slade.

Round 4 is in New Zealand at Pukekohe in a fortnight.
