“Fortunately we were able to get back to the line after that incident with (Patrik) Sandell. I think we now realize that our cars are durable and we’re having no mechanical or liability problems and that’s key in Global Rallycross. It’s definitely a contact sport; everyone at Volkswagen Andretti has done an amazing job at developing these cars and making them as strong as possible. This race was huge for points, so we just need to have a strong day tomorrow and stay out of trouble.”
