V8 Supercars – Team Vodafone Turn Up The Heat At Hidden Valley

June 17, 2011

V8 Supercars

Jamie Whincup‘s strong form has continued to gain momentum, the TeamVodafone driver topping today’s V8 Supercar practice sessions at the Sky City Triple Crown in Darwin.

Teamate Craig Lowndes also showed good pace with the third fastest time of the day, only two-tenths of a second shy of Whincup’s best of 1:09.4369

With a less than desirable practice tyre bank available to them for this event TeamVodafone utilised their first on-track outing to focus on tyre degredation and base set-up, keeping their green set of tyres for a qualifying run in the final session. While Whincup ended the opening session P7 and Lowndes P15, their results were not a true indicataion of the TeamVodafone V8 Holden Commodore VEII’s pace.

Mark Skaife was back behind the wheel of the #888 Commodore during the first two practice sessions, recording consistent top ten lap times throughout both sessions.

Saturday’s on-track activities will see the V8 Supercars qualify for Race 12 at 11.20am (ACST) followed by top ten shootout at 12.20pm (ACST). The 42 lapped race will kick off at 3.35pm (ACST).

TeamVodafone’s live race day blog from the pit garage will commence on www.teamvodafone.com at 3:35pm (ACST).
