Pye looks for Winton points haul

Pye looks for Winton points haul
Date: 15th November, 2012
Triple Eight Race Engineering’s Scott Pye is hoping a good points haul at this weekends penultimate round of the 2012 Dunlop Series at Winton Motor Raceway will elevate him into the top three of the Championship.

The Monster Energy/Gear Wrench backed driver currently sits fourth in the series, only four points behind third placed Nick Percat.

Pye, who is familiar with the Winton track, having tested the LDM Commodore there ahead of the endurance races, is hoping he can break through for his first round win this weekend.

"Winton is one of the few circuits this season where I actually have some experience," Pye explained. "I have tested there a couple times this year in the LDM Holden and can't wait to get there in the Monster Energy/Gear Wrench machine.

"I am currently fourth in the championship and from my point of view, still very much in championship contention. I am keeping the same focus I have had all year and that is to do everything possible and let the results take care of themselves.

"I have had a strong and consistent year however I am yet to win my first round in the Dunlop Series. This is a big goal of mine and I will be doing everything I can to make it happen in the last two rounds," he continued.

"Considering my lack of experience, Bathurst was a very good round for me and gave me a lot of confidence ahead of these final rounds.

"My confidence has grown a lot in these Commodores this season and I can't wait to get back on track this weekend," Pye concluded.

With only two rounds to go in the Dunlop Series, Pye sits fourth overall on 1150 points, trailing current leader Chaz Mostert by 128 points.

The Dunlop Series will be on track tomorrow with two practice sessions followed by Qualifying and Race 1 on Saturday. The final two 12-lap races will conclude the round on Sunday.
