“We are really, really happy with that one,” said Tander.
“We didn’t really know where we were at after practice, because with the way the tyre regulations are this weekend, you can run brand-new tyres in practice, but we chose not to.
“It’s a brand new car, so we effectively shook it down in Practice 1, bedding brakes and things like that. We made it better in Practice 2, and it came alive on greens in qualifying.
“I thought we’d been behind because they ran green tyres this morning, so they’d have a better idea of the balance of the carl, but the MPC boys did an awesome, mega job.
“It was a late deal putting all this together. I’d spent some time on the MPC computer sim, learning TCR cars around this track, and it all came together.
“I can’t thank, Steve McLaughlin, Jamac Racing and carsales coming on board for this year, it’s a fantastic result.”
