"?The year for me went went quite well. I can’t thank my crew enough, if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be competing myself. They do a great job of keeping the car ready and helping me out.
“The car ran great, we had no problems with the car. The handful of guys that were there were very good because we're all very close in times. It's literally only a few tenths of a second in our lap times.
“A couple of the guys that haven't been out as much this year will be back including Brett Niall, Jason Pryde, Clinton Rayner and Brad Boley, and I think Peter George might make it to a few more meetings next year, which will also be good.
“I do have a new car on the way for next season which is exciting. There’s half a dozen of us now that are literally within tenth or two of us, plus those names so it should make it a pretty interesting series next year.”
