Eric Holden said his team winning had "been a long time coming."

He also said, "We’ve been the bridesmaid for the last couple of races so it’s nice to do one better and win Race 5 into Sydney, Australia.

"People have been asking me if I would be happy winning the overall race without actually winning one of the races in the series. My answer is always yes, but it feels so much better to win a race then come second or third."
