#52 Danny KENT – 9th:
“I think we can be happy with this result. It’s not our best result of the year but it’s been one of our best weekends and a big thank you to the team. We made some changes and you can see from the results that the changes were for the best. Unfortunately it was a little too late in the last race. I’m happy. Not we can go into the winter happier but I need to keep working on my fitness to come into 2017 stronger than ever.”
