V8 Supercars – TeamVodafone Firm As Major Threat After Townsville Practice

July 8, 2011

V8 Supercars

TeamVodafone have launched their Sucrogen Townsville 400 on-track campaign in emphatic style, posting the first and third fastest times in today’s V8 Supercar practice sessions.
 
With surface changes to Turn’s 3 and 8 the duo utilized their first on-track session to get re-acquainted with the track before working on qualifying pace in the final thirty minute hitout.
 
Jamie Whincup’s affiliation with the 2.86km street circuit continued, the Championship leader posted the fastest lap of the day, 1.12.7590.
 
While fellow Holden driver Lee Holdsworth split the teammates, Craig Lowndes set a time only two-tenths of a second behind Whincup.
 
TeamVodafone’s endurance co-drivers Mark Skaife and Andrew Thompson returned to the track in the opening two practice sessions. Skaife sat P2 throughout the first two sessions with Thompson’s best being P7 in the opening practice session.
 
Saturday’s on-track activities will see the V8 Supercars qualify for Race 14 at 11.05am (AEST) followed by top ten shootout at 12.15pm (AEST). The 72 lapped race will kick off at 3.35pm (AEST).

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