IntaRacing hits the track

Only a matter of months after forming Team IntaRacing has reached another milestone after completing its first ever V8 Supercar test day at Queensland Raceway.

Marcus Marshall hit the track in the Access Cash-backed Ford Falcon for the test session which came barely a week after the car was unveiled to the public for the first time.

The test marked the first time Marshall had hit the track in the car ahead of the opening round of the season in Adelaide and he said he thrilled by the work carried out to get to the stage where the team was out on track.

“Being a new team and getting to where we are now and in a position where everything is running and operational is a fantastic effort and a real testament to the crew who have dedicated many days and sleepless nights making sure we are ready to hit the track,” he said. “Going into the test day, we were all a bit worried about the weather with Cyclone Hamish pounding Queensland so we kicked off early in the morning and were able to run in a number of components before lunchtime.

“Once the bedding in process was complete, we had our first chance to drive the car in anger but then it started raining and we had a few small issues with the electronics. Once these were rectified we ran the car until dark despite the weather conditions,” Marshall concluded.

Team IntaRacing Manager, Keith Evers said the test day provided the team with the on-track simulation necessary for the season-opening Clipsal 500.

“Overall I was fairly happy with how the test day went, we got all the tasks completed which we set out to achieve and everything on the car has been run in for the next three races,” he said. “The car ran very well all day and we were able to stay out on track until dark. Marcus [Marshall] was comfortable in the car and I am extremely happy about that.

“From a team perspective the day was extremely valuable as we were able to simulate race track situations. It was also a great to boost to the gelling process as the team have never worked together before.”
