Kevin Weeks has finished fourth on debut in Race 1, Round 3 of the Australian GT Championship at Eastern Creek in the Supaloc Racing Lamborghini Gallardo. 

Weeks qualified seventh and then took advantage of an early pit-stop to change from slicks to wets to move up the order in the one-hour race.

"The result was better than we expected," he said. "I hadn’t driven the car at all before the weekend, and during the race it was understeering a bit. It’s still a learning experience for everyone in the team, but this is a very strong way to start off our GT Championship campaign."

"Our strategy worked really well," Supaloc Racing Technical Director Oscar Fiorinotto added. “The decision to pit early to change to wet tyres gave us an advantage once the pit-stop shuffle played out."

Another one-hour race will be held today for Round 3 of the Australian GT Championship.
