I love going up to the Gold Coast – it’s one of my favourite tracks.
It’s a unique street circuit with little room to pass. The consequences are severe when you don’t get it right too. Of course the other variable is we run with co-drivers too, but having Bairdo with me gives me confidence going into this weekend.
For our team it’s an opportunity to achieve a podium result and with all the work we’ve put into the car I have no doubt we’re capable of a strong result.
It’s been a busy two weeks behind the scenes too. Straight after Bathurst I filmed a new Hungry Jacks TV commercial. It was good fun and the guys at Hungry Jacks are great to work with . Check out the video here http://www.hungryjacks.com.au/brekk-e-tag
On Tuesday this week I joined the Inside Supercars team on Fox Sports. James Phelps asked me how I felt about Will Davison winning Bathurst? All I can say about that is I’m happy for Will…but it doesn’t change how I feel about my team at Erebus – I really do enjoy my position with the team. It’s a dedicated crew of people and I’m sure we’ll improve as the season progresses. We also have an awesome group of sponsors including Penrite and Hungry Jacks who are right behind us.
So it’s off to the Gold Coast now for some sunshine…! See you there.
