Jason Miller says there is more to come from his ex-Craig Lowndes Porsche 991 Mk2 GT3 Cup car after qualifying fifth for Round 2 of the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge at Queensland Raceway.
After a successful test at the venue last week, Miller was hopeful of contending for a top-three qualifying result, but struggled with car balance throughout the day.
“After testing here a couple of weeks ago, we were very confident coming into the weekend because we believed we had nailed the setup.
“Unfortunately, we weren’t able to replicate that form in practice or qualifying today and we were struggling with the car a bit.
“I think some of it was down to the changing track conditions – we’re sharing the circuit with a lot of other categories with different tyre compounds, so there’s much more variation in the grip level than there was at the test day.
“But as a driver, I also don’t think I extracted the best from myself today, so I’ll be aiming to make some improvements tomorrow.”
Miller currently sits fourth in the PMSC standings after a consistent performance in the season opener at Sydney Motorsport Park, and believes his race pace will be a strength.
“In Round 1, our race pace was better than our one-lap speed, so I’ll be looking to use that to our advantage this weekend, especially in the long race on Sunday,” Miller concluded.
