TEKNO’s Will Davison has achieved the team’s best result yet this year at the Perth SuperSprint for Round 4 of the Supercars Championship this weekend.
- Will qualified 7th for Race 7.
- Will finished P5 in Race 8.
Race 7 – P8
Davison qualified 7th and started from the 4th Row for the first Race at Barbagallo Raceway.
The car lacked the correct balance to save the tyres but Davison was able to finish in P8 after 50 Laps.
Davison was happy to have a clean run and keep the car straight in Saturday’s Race.
Race 8 – P5
Davison began the final Race in 8th, after the car was improved overnight and setting his fastest Qualifying time of the weekend.
Starting in a good position for the 82 Lap race, Davison fought hard to reach the front of the field and with a great strategy by the team finished P5.
Davison believes after his tough start to the year that P5 is a great result.
“It was a great way to finish the weekend, it wasn’t a podium but it was a really rewarding Race. It was a really hard fought out strategy slog and we maximised every single lap. To hold out Shane and Fabian on fresh tyres was a really good fight to the end. We’ve improved the car all weekend and it felt good to leave with a good haul of points and enjoying my racing.”
TEKNO will now prepare for Round 5 of the Supercars Championship at the Winton SuperSprint on May 19-21, with all Races to be televised LIVE on Fox Sports.
