Casey signs off V8 Supercars season with top ten finish in Sydney
Casey ends his 2013 four-wheeled adventure on a high with a good result at the Sydney NRMA Motoring and Services 500.
Two-time MotoGP champion Casey Stoner signed off his 2013 V8 Supercars season with a top-10 finish in the Sydney 500. The 28-year-old suffered a trying initiation to V8 Supercars, with many of the seven rounds he contested in the Dunlop Development Series plagued with safety cars and incidents.
However, he showed serious potential and proved himself quick enough to run with the frontrunners by seasonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s end.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I would have liked more time in the car, for sure, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve enjoyed the challenge of driving and I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t thank Pirtek, Red Bull, all my sponsors and fans for supporting me this year,Ã¢â‚¬Â Stoner said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I feel sorry for the team because I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think we ever really got to show our true potential but this weekend the car was great.Ã¢â‚¬Â
