It's that time of year when we're starting to post out numerous reports of different athlete's results at different multisport events around the country and further afield. Whilst you wouldn't necessarily refer to V8 Supercars as multisport racing, it does require an exceptional level of endurance, skill and mental acuity to perform well in. We are very proud at The TEAM CORE to have one of the best up and coming V8 Supercar drivers in Australia as part of the squad in driver Mark McNally.
Last February, Mark McNally (whom many of you now know who swims at 5.30am on a Tuesday and Friday in Lane 1 when he's in town) joined the squad to build his fitness and endurance for his V8 goals and this last weekend had the chance to perform at the highest level at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama. Running as high as fourth overall at stages in the event, it certainly provided exciting watching for those of us who know Mark. Andrew Holmes (also of Lane 1) said:
"A bit of drama in the last handful of laps pushed them down to 17th overall, but this is a fabulous result. I know I was excited!!"
Mark said of the race:
"The team did an unreal job, I'm really happy with them. Oscar did a great job with the strategy to keep us on the lead lap and a great position, which is probably a surprise for a lot of people that we were running as high as fourth."

From all of us here Mark - well done!!
