Winton in country Victoria is my home track – it’s only a short drive from where I grew up in Albury. I really like racing there because there’s not a lot of glamour – it’s pure racing.
Winton is the first place I ever raced a car. I was 15 years old and I raced Mum’s WRX. I think it was called ‘Winton Fun Day’. I paid $10 for the day….MAD FUN!
We haven’t tested at Winton this year and given we have a new tyre we’re approaching this round like we have no data. We have no idea how the new tyres will go!
In some ways it’s a weekend of testing. I’m hoping for a clean practice Friday – but it looks like it might rain. As a result there’s a chance the first dry lap we get might be in qualifying – so it’s going to be challenging for us all.
See you there.
