Ingall targets Queensland podium.

Russell Ingall will look to take his first round podium for the Supercheap Auto Racing team as the V8 Supercar Championship heads to Queensland Raceway this weekend.

Ingall switched to the Holden team from Ford outfit Stone Brothers during the winter and sits twelfth in the points standings on the back of fifth place round finishes at Darwin and Sandown.

However, on the home circuit for the team, Ingall will look to try and break onto the podium – with qualifying in particular being key to his chances of success.

"It'll be pretty tight,” he said. “I think qualifying will be the most important thing out of the whole weekend because the track has deteriorated a little bit over the last twelve months, she's a little bit bumpier so it's harder to pass.

"They've coated the track with some substance that is supposed to bring the bitumen back again, but I don't think it did a hell of a lot. Qualifying will be a major, major part of how your weekend is going to turn out. Going on that, at least we've been consistently in the top half of the ten so we're looking alright in that respect and then we'll just use a bit of home ground advantage whenever we can.

“[As the home track] you know a few little secrets about where you might be able to find an opportunity to pass. Hopefully that won't be our problem; we'll be so far in front that we'll leave that up to everyone else!"

Morris said he was looking forward to racing at home, and expected the team's recent good run to continue.

"Our goal for Supercheap Auto Racing is for it to become one of the leading V8 teams and I think the decisions we've made and all the hard work are starting to show in the team's results," he said. "This weekend is important for our team; not only is it our home race, but Supercheap Auto's head office, Sirromet and the Holden Performance Driving Centre are all nearby and we'd like to reward them with another strong effort."
