Dean has had his first proper laps in the Team CoolDrive entry in the Additional Driver session at the Bend today, finishing the session in P4.
Initially sampling the car back at Winton in May, the session was wet and the co-drivers didn’t get a chance to complete any proper laps. Today was the first chance Dean had to properly put car #21 through it’s paces.
Dean: “I’ve had plenty of track time around The Bend, with it being my home track, but I’d never been in a Supercar around it. It was nice to get some time in the car, especially with Bathurst just around the corner.”
“I’m pretty happy with P4. There’s always an adjustment period with a new team, new car so P4 is a pretty good place to start.”
“I know I have a job to do for Macauley as well so hopefully the team got some valuable data from me and that will help Macauley over the weekend.”
Dean will get to jump back in the car at the team’s scheduled test day at the start of October, just before the first round of the enduros at Bathurst.
