Bryce battles with no-wiper blade at Sandown Supersprint
After a year away, racing returned to Victoria last weekend for Round 2 of the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship. Bryce Fullwood was a victim of the debris being dragged onto the circuit, with the Walkinshaw Andretti United young gun narrowly avoiding disaster.
While it was wet in the first half of the race, Bryce charged into the top-10. Once the track dried up, and the field went to slicks halfway through, Bryce lost a bit of balance, before finishing 15th.
The wettest conditions of the day greeted the final race of the weekend, and Bryce was on the back foot from the opening lap with a mechanical issue to his windscreen wiper. With next-to-no visibility, his drive was impressive just to finish, but to move from 20th to 13th despite the challenges was remarkable.
Bryce had this to say:
Bit of a tough weekend overall for us, no doubt about that, not much fell our way.
We had pretty got balance in the wet in the first race of the day but I struggled a bit when it dried out.
That last race was pretty crazy with the broken wiper, I could hardly see the apex until you were on top of it, so to move forward was pretty cool actually, it was tough going out there.
I’m excited to get to Tassie next, I love that track, so looking forward to hopefully having a bit more luck.
