CHARLIE'S WEEKEND REVIEW

“Our pace this weekend was really strong and that's very encouraging. The weather did its best to give us a few surprises but we handled the conditions well and made some good strategy calls that we we were unlucky didn't fall our way. I felt very comfortable in Sunday's race and lapped well. The spin for Jason was a shame towards the end but we can take lots of positives from the weekend and look ahead to Watkins Glen with confidence.”
