The two rookie Stadium Super Truck drivers excelled; with Price finishing sixth on Friday, and Geddes replicating the result on Saturday, but Sunday saw Price forced to limp home after his brakes began fading during the final laps, leading to some intense experimentation on the subject of corner entry speed, and an eighth place finish.
‰ÛÏThe whole weekend has been incredible." Price commented. "Unfortunately we didn‰Ûªt podium, but we‰Ûªve had a lot of fun, and got some really good promotion at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, so a big thanks to KTM Australia, TCQ Quarries, Doonside.com, TP87.com.au and Lancaster Motor Group who helped get us here.
"Racing the Super Truck is so different to just driving it. These guys are definitely not scared to trade fibreglass or hit you from any direction if it will push you off the track and get them by and I didn't really want to trash the truck because it's not mine!
"The last race was a bit scary, the last 2 to 3 laps we were starting to get a lot of brake fade and the big girl didn't want to pull up! I was starting to go wide on some turns and it was getting pretty scary at some points!
"I finished eighth today, I drifted wide in a couple of turns and had a few guys sneak up the inside but we got to the finish line in one piece, and I'm stoked to be a part of the very first one.
The crowd‰Ûªs reaction to these things has been pretty amazing, and they were saying that an extra 2-3000 people came down to the fence while we were on - I was just having a good old time launching off all the jumps and some people were pretty impressed with my drives which is nice.
"It's definitely been a hectic weekend, but at the end of the day it's been one of the best weekends of my life - there's been a lot of things in this last year that I'll remember for a lifetime and this has been one of the best. Robby Gordon gave me the bonnet of the actual car that I raced, so it will be able to go up on my shed wall and it'll be something I will be able to keep for life.‰Û
