Frosty's V8 Update - May 2017

The new season started at Monroe’s home city of Adelaide for the Clipsal 500. Qualifying 5th wasn’t a bad start, but Jamie Whincup and I collided while running strongly in the first race. After a spin I fell to the rear, racing to 15th. I started from 12th on Sunday and was well into the top ten by the mid stages. I struggled with car balance and had to conserve fuel to make the end, finishing 14th. The non-championship Grand Prix races were next, this year with four short ten minute qualifying sessions. I qualified 16th and in the first sprint race made up 8 places, in the second race I finished 6th and took 12th in the third. Race 4 saw a major crash at turn one that I got caught up in. I recovered to to finish 15th from the rear of the field.

Frosty's V8 Update - January 2017

My second half of the season proved to be very challenging. At Sydney Motorsport Park I was fastest in final practice but that didn’t translate into strong qualifying form. An 11th place in the opening race followed by a tyre failure in the next one ended my chances of a stronger result at my home event.
