“After getting reacquainted with the car, it was extremely fast right out of the gate and continued that pace as the track evolved throughout the night, which is a testament to the team and the efforts they put in, both in the lead up to the event and during,” commented Kerry Madsen, who flew into Perth from his home in America on Friday afternoon with just enough time to ‘bond’ with the immaculately presented car prior to winning the WA Title event.
