DRIVER JAMES MOFFAT.
Wilson Security Racing GRM Volvo S60 driver James Moffat had a Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 to forget, with a tough weekend finished off with an engine failure and fire.
The result was Moffat's first ever failure to finish in the 1000, after six successive classified finishes with a best result of second in 2014.
The weekend started on the back foot for the number 34 Volvo, with Moffat's team mate James Golding hitting the wall at the top of the Mountain on Thursday.
The result was the second straight non-points finish for Moffat, after his Sandown 500 campaign was also cut short, and after 21 races of season 2016, he now sits 23rd in the point standings.
The Virgin Australia Supercars Championship continues in two weekend's time on the streets of Surfers Paradise with the Gold Coast 600.
- Fine conditions which continued throughout the weekend.
- The opening 60 minute practice session of the weekend saw Moffat set the 15th quickest time.
- Golding took the wheel for the second session and completed 15 circuits before hitting the wall hard at Reid Park.
- Moffat missed the third session while repairs were carried out.
"Obviously what happened in the co-driver session has set us back a bit," said Moffat.READ MORE
