V8 Supercars – Kelly Racing Preview – Albert Park 400

March 23, 2011

V8 Supercars

2011 is the first season that all four Kelly Racing Commodores have scored a top 10 finish – and that feat has been achieved after just four races in this year’s V8 Supercars Championship. Todd Kelly has two top 10 finishes from four races (10th in Abu Dhabi on Friday, seventh in Adelaide on Saturday), while David Reynolds (fourth in Abu Dhabi on Saturday), Greg Murphy (ninth in Abu Dhabi on Saturday) and Rick Kelly (second in Adelaide on Sunday) all have one top 10 from the four races held so far this season

-Pepsi Max Crew driver Greg Murphy has previous form at the fast and flowing Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit, with pole position and Race 1 victory at the Australian GP in 2004. Despite being a non-points event, Murphy sees the AGP meeting as important to the progress and development of the team’s cars

This event is the home race for Stratco Racing driver David Reynolds, who lives on Queens Road in Albert Park, his apartment literally overlooking the circuit. One of the fittest drivers in V8 Supercars, Reynolds does much of his cycling, running and swimming training in and around the Alberk Park precinct. Reynolds won a Carrera Cup race at Albert Park in 2007
Todd Kelly has won two V8 Supercar races at the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit, taking out the opening race of the weekend in both 2005 and 2006. He is also a two-time pole position winner at Albert Park, topping qualifying in both 2005 and 2006

Last year the Kelly Racing Commodores were well suited to the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit, with Todd Kelly qualifying in fourth place and Rick Kelly just behind in fifth place. Bad luck spoiled their run but clearly the pace was there

Rick Kelly is doing double duty this weekend at the Australian Grand Prix, also competing in the Red Bull Race Off against former F1 race winner David Coulthard, Red Bull Racing F1 test driver Daniel Ricciardo and motocross star Robbie Maddison
