VAN GISBERGEN TO START FROM FRONT ROW IN BAHRAIN

Stone Brothers Racing
February 26, 2010


SP Tools Racing’s Shane van Gisbergen will start this afternoon’s 200km race in Bahrain from the front row after qualifying second fastest in the Top Ten Shootout. Van Gisbergen put in a sensational lap that was only outdone by reigning V8 Supercar Champion, Jamie Whincup on the session’s final lap.

“It’s great to get my first front row start, it’s great for SP Tools and SBR.

“The track changed so much between the qualifying and shootout sessions, I think it was Will Davison that set a low five in the times and we all thought he would be up the front but the track was a lot better for our car. We made a couple of changes between the sessions and that helped us”, said van Gisbergen.

“It’s good to be starting second so hopefully we are still sitting here at the end of the day.”

“It’s been a great start to the season but it’s the team that have stepped up, I’m just the last piece of the puzzle. They worked so hard over the offseason and made some great developments to the car.”

IRWIN Racing’s Alex Davison will start this afternoons 37 lap race from 12th while Wilson Security Racing’s Tim Slade will start from 19th.

The Gulf Air Desert 400 Race 1 starts at 3:35pm.
