Cameron Waters (above), driving the Tickford Racing’s #6 entry, turned the fastest lap of Day 1 of the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 with a time of 2:04.1696s which saw him better Scott McLaughlin by almost three tenths of a second in Practice 3.
Co-driver Will Davison was also fourth-quickest in Practice 2, the co-driver hit-out which saw James Moffat prevail in the Supercheap Auto Tickford Mustang.
“It was great, obviously a good start to the weekend,” said Waters.
“The car was really good and Will fit it in quite well as well.
“(It was a) Productive day; the car is straight, which is the main thing. The only hiccup was running out of fuel.
“I was debating with my engineer (Sam Potter) that whole flying lap to try and let me finish it.
“He wanted me to pit, and I was like, ‘Nah, come on, it’ll be ‘right’, and luckily he let me finish it, but I thought I would’ve had enough to get back, but obviously not.”
