Wall Targets Next Top Ten

Wilson Security Racing’s David Wall looks to be a contender for the top ten again this weekend after finishing 12th in today’s practice sessions at Sydney Olympic Park Street Circuit.

Wall, who ran full tanks in the first sessions to prepare for the weekend’s two 250km endurance races, says the car still needs some tweaks but is confident overall.

V8 Supercars will be back on track tomorrow at 11.55 for qualifying.

“We ran full tanks in the very first session because we wanted to pick a few things off going into a 250-km race.

“After that we were working on the balance of the car over a lap and it came together very nicely in that last session. I didn’t quite get it together over the curbs so there’s still more time to come in the car.

“We’re always aiming for top ten now but it just depends on how quickly you get on top of things. Hopefully we’ll nail it this weekend to finish the season off on a high.”
