Here's what the guys had to say as they left the dock on the transfer RIB this morning.
Rosco: "It’s good to get into it with what is basically the top team... they’re a really consistent group and always perform well so we’ll be looking forward to a good race. It should be fun – nothing like getting into it straight away!"
Cheese: "I'm looking forward to it – it’s going to be a good race."
JK: "We’re ready to race. It looks pretty light today so it’s one of those unpredictable days – it’s going to be a tricky one."
The 18th man for the race against the Kiwis is Massimo Mele, the General Manager of BMW Sardinia.
