Thursday saw Dean & Dave hit the track for the first three practice sessions of the Bathurst 1000 & instantly they were on the pace.
Practice one was a combined practice session, so both drivers were permitted to take part. Dave spent most of the session in the car, with Dean jumping in at the very end. Dave’s fastest time put him in P2.
Practice two was a co-driver only session so Dean had 45 minutes to settle into the car & get a feel of the FG X around the mountain. He settled in quickly and finished in P2.
Practice three was a combined practice session but Dave took the opportunity to get a full 45 minutes of practice in. Again, Dave was at the pointy end of the field & they finished in P3.
Dean: “Bathurst is the time of year I wait for. It was great to get on the track & get a feel of the FG X around Mount Panorama. Dave & I have been on the pace here for the past few years so it definitely builds the confidence when you roll out on Thursday and are on the pace straight away.”
Friday sees another two practice sessions & qualifying. To keep up to date with Dean & Dave, you can follow Dean on Twitter at @deancanto. Also, follow Dean on Periscope to get some behind the scene highlights as well.
