Prodrive Racing (Australia)'s Chaz Mostert has made a successful return to Mount Panorama in practice at the Bathurst 1000, finishing third in the day's final session.
The Supercheap Auto Racing FG X missed half of today's first 60 minute practice, with the car suffering from a drive line vibration.
Repaired in time for practice two, Steve Owen gained positive feedback to finish 10th among the co-drivers.
Times dipped below the 2minute 5 second mark early in the day with the fastest time ever on Thursday at the Bathurst 1000 was recorded in practice three.
“We've just been minding our business a bit today. Just getting back into the groove of the car and getting around here,” Chaz said. “I felt that in the middle of that session that we probably went a bit wrong with our direction with the car and our engineer had a pretty big swing at a few things here and there and I think towards the end, we're definitely going down the right path now with the car we just have to use the practice sessions tomorrow to keep going down that path and see just how far we need to go down it.”
“Overall I'm really happy with the day. The car seems to be pretty fast down the straights which is something we struggled with at Sandown so there are a lot of positives, we just have to tune it up and I just want to get through a qualifying session so we'll see how we go tomorrow afternoon."
