It was a solid qualifying session for Fredrik Lestrup as he tackled the Adelaide street circuit in qualifying trim for the first time. Going out in qualifying group 2 based on practice times yesterday Fredriks 1:23.6659 in qualifying was his best time so far this weekend and a one second improvement over his best lap time in practice. It was good enough for fifth position in the second qualifying group and ultimately led to a 20th start position for this evenings race.
“I would have liked to qualify a bit higher but at least we reached our target of qualifying within top 20,” Fredrik says. “I managed to use the tyres better at their peak and improved my personal best with a second. The time is not too far off 10th position which is encouraging. So far so good, now we’ll see what the race can bring. I’m sure it will be quite busy and the heat adds to the challenge. The main goal is to stay out of trouble and bring it to the finish line. If we can do that we should be able to get a decent position.”

Team mates Josh Hunter and Aaron Tebb ended up in 18th and 29th respectively. The race will start at 18:15 and is run over 40 minutes.
