Zane Goddard, Super2 Series Driver for Brad Jones Racing.
 

GODDARD P15 IN TRICKY SANDOWN CONDITIONS

 

Zane Goddard has finished P15 in his first Supercar race in the wet at the Sandown 500 during Round 5 of the Super2 Series Championship.

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS

 

  • Zane finished P11 in Race 1.
  • Zane finished P16 in Race 2 Qualifying.

 

 

Race 1 – Position 15

 

The Sandown 500 was the first time Goddard had driven on SuperSoft Tyres, the very same that the Supercars Championship races with.

 

Goddard qualified P22 for a wet Race 1 that began under Safety Car for two laps due to the wet weather.

 

The first Race of the weekend was Goddard’s first time driving a Supercar in the wet and his first time with the slick tyres.

 

The Rookie had a great race in treacherous conditions despite limited racing time due to Safety Cars, climbing 7 places in less than 22 laps to finish P15.

 

 

Race 2 – Position 16

 

 

Goddard qualified P16 for the curtain-raising Race prior to the Sandown 500, improving on his finishing position the day before in calmer conditions.

 

The BJR Racer finished where he began due to the #8 Car struggling with tyre life throughout the final 22 lap Race.

 

 

“PRETTY TOUGH WEEKEND, DIDN’T REALLY GET THE RESULTS WE WERE HOPING FOR. IT WAS A MIXED BAG OF CONDITIONS WITH THE WEATHER, SATURDAY WAS ONE OF THE MORE EXCITING RACES I’VE BEEN IN, SUNDAY WE JUST COULDN’T MAKE THE TYRES LAST. DRIVING ON SUPERSOFTS WAS A NEW AND DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE WHICH WAS GREAT. PLENTY OF TRAINING AND WORKING WITH THE TEAM NOW BEFORE BATHURST.” – ZANE GODDARD

 

Goddard will now prepare for the Bathurst 1000, to be held on 4 – 7 October, with all Races to be broadcast LIVE on Fox Sports.
