What they said - Day 5

Our in-field reporter caught up with a few of the drivers at the end of Day 5. See what they had to say.

Graham Copeland: “I can’t believe the lead we’ve got. Our fellow competitors aren’t talking to us now other than to tell us to slow down.

We really attacked this morning and Josh is right on the notes.”

Michael Bray: “It’s been a really great day. Great weather, great roads. Lucky for us we’ve been able to have some fun and just cruise through.”

Gosling: “We’ve developed a bit of an engine misfire and it got worse after lunch. Don’t know what it is yet but we may need our buffer.”

Morton: “The lead doesn’t tell the whole truth. Some of the cars behind us have copped a bit of a penalty. We’ll just continue enjoying the roads and bring it home to the finish hopefully without any dramas.

Close: “It was disappointing on the Strahan stage to find out that even though we were nine seconds faster than Jason (White) he cleaned the stage, so it all means nothing. He only just cleaned it and we cleaned it by 10 seconds. So it’s bloody disappointing to be honest. If we are a chance to win we need to concentrate on what we are doing and stop worrying about what Jason is doing. We just need to hit every stage as hard as we can and just keep it on the road and keep the pressure on.”

White: “We lost a bit of time trying to look after our tyres. But they are okay and we’ve got enough rubber to make it through.”
