Brabham helps IRWIN to best race of year

“IRWIN Racing went from the outhouse to the penthouse in the race today," engineer David Stuart smiled, "We only made a really small adjustment from qualifying to the race and, as is the IRWIN Racing story this year, we qualified badly, but raced really well.

"Today we were really fortunate to work with two very good drivers, and both of them did an excellent job. David set the day up for us, he missed all the carnage on the opening laps and he was super quick. He gave Alex the car in very good condition and Alex did a fantastic job to pass cars.

"We weren't just making up spots in pit-stops either - we passed cars. The SBR pit crew did an amazing job as we double stopped, like every other team, and picked up spots under a safety car. The guys did a fantastic job. Really, as [#9 team driver] John MacIntyre said on the podium, this result is for the team, IRWIN Racing and SBR. Everybody did their job and that's all we can ask, it's a great feeling.”
