BROC FEENEY – DRIVER

“It was a pretty crazy day for us. At one stage we were a lap down, we got a pit lane penalty and then to be running in ninth with 20 laps to go, I unfortunately made an error and got caught out a little wide up the top of the hill. That was all she wrote for this year.”

“The team did a fantastic job. We were quick in that race. On a green tyre we had some really good pace.”

“For me, racing someone like Jamie Whincup and all those other guys was a pretty cool experience.”

“I’m devastated I made that mistake because everyone has put in such a big effort this past six months for this Supercheap program.”

“A massive thanks to Supercheap Auto, the Triple Eight Race Engineering team and everyone who came along for the ride.”

RUSSELL INGALL – DRIVER

“We gave it a red hot crack. Bathurst is known for its highs and its lows, and we experienced both of those this weekend.”

“We certainly didn’t disgrace ourselves and we opened a few eyes out there on the track.”

“Broc did a stunning job. We were running inside the top 10. I’d rather have gone out going for the win rather than just sitting there for an average result.”

“Thanks to everyone, the supporters, the Supercheap Auto family. We gave it a bloody good go and we have appreciated all the support.”
