What a Difference a Day makes! Sunday at the GC600.

Motorsport is a cruel mistress, and TEKNO were taught a lesson by her today. After the highs of a podium and top-ten double yesterday, we sunk to a very low point with a DNF for Shane and Jeroen, and a hard fought, but disappointing 17th for Jonathon and Marc. The day started poorly for the team, with a lack of pace in qualifying hampering our efforts to improve on yesterday's result. Shane's best lap saw him start from 12th on the grid, whilst Jonathon battled a mysterious handling issue to start from p24.

Tired tyres the issue in QR Practice

Friday practice at Queensland Raceway saw two sessions for the majority of the field, with an additional session for endurance co-drivers. Both TEKNO cars were affected by the quality of their tyre bank, with Team TEKNO Darrell Lea’s Jonathon Webb and Team TEKNO V.I.P.

Jonathon Webb had a better session, despite his tyres, finishing p13 with a 1:10.8. Practice two saw limited running for both cars, with the tyres making it difficult to learn anything from the changes that were [...]

TEKNO are Round Winners in Darwin!

TEKNO Autosports had a fantastic weekend at Hidden Valley Raceway in Darwin, with consistency across all three races rewarded with Jonathon Webb and Shane van Gisbergen earning first and second place for the round. The weather during a Darwin winter could not be described as anything short of perfection, with blue skies and temperatures in the low thirties for the entire weekend meaning rain would not trouble the field at any stage over the weekend. The V8 Supercars field headed to Darwin with a very small tyre allocation – 3 sets of hard tyres and two sets of softs – for the weekend, which meant tyre management was extremely important. This saw Friday practice become a bit of a mish-mash, [...]
