What they said - Day 4 quotes

Our infield reporter was at the end of Day 4 to chat to a few of the drivers. See what they had to say.
John Ireland and Janet Binns

JASON WHITE: Our tyres are still a bit of a worry. We went as fast as we dare go on them today. If we can hang onto our 37 seconds lead we should be okay but there’s no way we are going to get to Hobart with a two minute lead.


MICK BRAY: We tried to conserve the car a bit today before and lunch and take no risks. That didn’t really work so after lunch we started going flat out again. We are just trying to minimise the risks to get to the finish.


GRAHAM COPELAND: We’ve had a blast today. Cethana and Riana were just sensational. We had a major engine failure on Day 2 last year so we’ve been really enjoying the stages we didn’t get to see then. The car has got a few issues but it’s going alright and I’m confident we are going to make it to the finish.


JOSH SUTCLIFFE: We are quite happy with where we are sitting at the moment. We just keep pushing and our aim is to just get to the end of day and then worry tomorrow. The tyres are good and everything is sweet.


DARRYL MARSHALL: We weren’t worry when we weren’t leading after Day 1. It’s all about communication between driver and navigator. We haven’t been in the car for 12 months so we knew we were going to take a day or two to get that communication right and ourselves settled in the car. We allowed ourselves until today to start getting it right. And it’s coming together very well. This event has always been about a holiday with my father and my brother and to be leading our class in a great event like this is just a bonus.
