"I lost the clutch at the start of the race, and obviously went backwards pretty quickly so that made it pretty hard for us in that first stint, it was pretty scrappy,” said Moffat, who dumped nine spots at the start.
"But fortunately Cam was able to get back track position for us in the second stint, and from there the race was pretty straightforward for us, really.
"The car speed was basically what it was, and nobody was touching the guys in the middle [Mostert and Holdsworth], their car was incredible.”
Moffat has been in the Tickford stable as a co-driver since 2018, and was Mostert’s right-hand man in 2018 and 2019.
He made no secret that the 2021 pairing with Waters was his best chance yet to win the race, but the wait will go on until 2022 at least.
Second in 2014 for Moffat
"I feel like everybody at Tickford did an amazing job, the pit stops were flawless, and my buddy sitting next to me [Waters] drove the absolute wheels off it and didn’t put a wheel wrong,” he continued.
"Second was probably the maximum we could get out of the car, we just couldn’t find that sweet spot with the car the whole weekend, but Cam summed it up pretty well: bittersweet.
"We’ve finished second twice in this bloody race, so it’s good, but not good."
