21 | 06 | 2014 - PAIR OF SIXES BEST HAND

Ford Pepsi Max Crew has battled through a tough day in Darwin with Frosty recording a pair of six places to minimise the reduction of his points lead. 

Two processional races featured minimal passing though the championship leader did gain a handful of places in the second race after a slow getaway. 

It was a quiet day elsewhere with Chaz finishing 14th in race two. 

There was also little change in the order in the opening race with Frosty starting and finishing sixth. 

He battled closely with Garth Tander throughout but resisted making a lunge and maintained a healthy points advantage overall. 

Chaz faired similarly to finish 14th.

?I got a bad start in the second race and I am generally struggling with grip. I did the job to put it on row two and when you then give it away it is disappointing. I struggled off the line and the car wasn?t great in the race so we just salvaged what we could. I should?ve finished at least fourth in the last race but we need to go quicker tomorrow. Soft tyres will be a different ball game so we expect a different result.?

Chaz Mostert - #6 Pepsi Max FPR Ford:

?Two 14th places still give us some points but the hard tyre didn?t really work for us today. We should roll out better tomorrow but this track is long overdue for a resurface. It is not that great for the combination of factors we had today. Tomorrow is all about maintaining the whole race and it will be interesting to see if everyone finishes.?

Tim Edwards ? Team Principal: 
?We didn?t get the results we wanted today so there?s work to be done tonight. Mark did as much as he could and minimised the loss of points, but otherwise we underperformed. Tomorrow?s race is a very different equation as it is twice the distance, soft tyres and will involve a lot of different elements. We?ll regroup tonight and come out hard tomorrow.?
