Courtney Grabs Second To Start Year

Posted by

Mobil 1™ Boost Mobile Racing has started the 2018 season on a fantastic note courtesy of a podium finish for James Courtney, and a top 10 result for Scott Pye in the first race of the year.

The day started on the right foot when Courtney qualified his car No. 25 in third position in the top-10 shootout, narrowly missing out on a front row start.

Attention quickly turned to the 250km journey around the streets of Adelaide to kick off the year.

JC was lightning quick off the line, momentarily taking the lead before being forced to yield around the outside, slotting into second.

A flawless stop by the boys in the lane at the end of the first stint saw him leapfrog McLaughlin through strategy, taking over the lead of the race.

Fastest lap after fastest lap in the middle stint gave him enough of a buffer to hold off McLaughlin at the second round of stops, but unfortunately, when Shane van Gisbergen stopped a few laps later, he was able to jump the two of them, and take over the lead.

JC gave it absolutely everything for the last 30 laps, but just couldn’t quite challenge for the win.

In the second race of the weekend JC and Scotty finished 6th and 8th respectively after moving up 15 spots between them from a tough qualification.

The weekend leave the team 3rd overall and JC sitting 3rd on the championship as well
