If anybody is interested. This is the first time he has driven a full spec Aussie V8. It is this (and last) years winning car. He was using old tyres. At the end of his three stints he was about 2 seconds off this years pole which is pretty damn good considering the older tyres and much higher temp. They were not going for lap times but making radical adjustments so he could start to understand how to set up a V8 Supercar. This car, or its sister car of Craig Lowndes, would be what he uses in the Dunlop series next year if he decides its worth trying. Today was all about helping him make that decision. These cars are a lot harder to drive than the new Cars For The Future that have been introduced for 2013. Last time he drove a V8 Supercar it was the slightly detuned test rig. On that day he did faster lap times than Craig Lowdnes, the multiple champion.
