DE PASQUALE - QUOTE "Year done, last race of the year. A poor qualifying from all of us, so we were out of the ten which made for a pretty hard race. But we made our way back through to finish in the Ten finishing 7th - which is okay. Our race pace is definitely a lot better, so we'll learn what we can from that and reset for next year."DAVISON - QUOTE "Obviously a very disappointing qualifying this morning for both of us. We made some changes and just didn’t get on top of what we needed, the track was quite different to Saturday and we were just well out of the window. It was a solid race, with lots learnt, and definitely some positives in the race, I felt like I drove a really really good race. We had a good start, got through a lot of cars and I was on a really aggressive strategy. I really enjoyed it out there, had good speed in certain parts of the race. Unfortunately, we just had some delays with the fuel in our stops, so I think I came out a fair bit further back than I should’ve. Ultimately lots to look at and learn from, but I gave it absolutely everything I could in both races and it was good to get both cars in the Ten."
