Deflated Feeling for Moffat at Sandown

Deflated Feeling for Moffat at Sandown

James Moffat's Wilson Security Sandown 500 was a short lived affair, after his co-driver James Golding suffered a first lap flat tyre, which sent the Wilson Security Racing GRM Volvo S60 into the wall at high speed and an early retirement.

Up until the main race, the weekend had been promising for Moffat, who continued to find his groove aboard the Volvo.

Eighth fastest in opening Friday practice was backed up by a strong drive in his qualifying race on Saturday, which saw Moffat improve to fourth at the chequered flag.

After 20 races of season 2016, Moffat sits 19th in the championship point score, with the next event scheduled for October 6-9 at Mount Panorama, with the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

  • Getting into the swing of the retro round, the GRM machines sported the Volvo Dealer Team's livery from their championship winning 1986 season.
  • The main drivers only hit the track for the opening 30 minute practice session of the day, with the co-drivers taking the wheel for the remaining two sessions.
  • Moffat was eighth in his session, one position ahead of Volvo team mate Scott McLaughlin.
  • Golding was ninth and tenth fastest in his respective sessions.

"First of all, the cars this weekend look absolutely fantastic," said Moffat.
