After really promising signs throughout, ultimately, it was a tough day at the Island for Mobil 1 HSV Racing.
The day started off promising, with James in the top 10 in qualifying, and Scotty unlucky not to be in there as well.
James Courtney’s car #22 will have a new head turning look at the WD-40 Phillip Island 500 and beyond, with Boost Mobile becoming the major partner on the car for the rest of the year.
We’re back in our home state for round 3 of the championship, as we get ready to cross the bridge and park up at Phillip Island for the weekend.

Sunday at the Australian Grand Prix always has a special feel to it, there is a real buzz around the place, and for the Mobil 1 HSV Racing team, they capitalised for their best results of the weekend.
Another 13 lap race was ahead of us today, which was a mixed bag of fortunes in the end.
