After a interesting few months for the Team Dynamik squad in the V8 Supercar Series, the team's Holden Commodores were back on track this past weekend with series rookie Will Davison and old hand Tony Longhurst at the wheels of the newly liveried Boomerang Phonecard Commodores.

Whilst Longhurst took his time to get back into the swing of things, young charger Will Davison was right in the thick of things and impressed observers.

In the first race of the Australian GP weekend the 22-year-old forged his way from 16th to 13th, then followed up with an ice-cool drive in Saturday's trying wet-then-dry conditions over 19 laps to place 11th.

Davison started well on Sunday's final V8 race but collected Steve Ellery's Ford on the second lap ending the race for both drivers, inflicting only panel damage to the front left quarter of the VZ Commodore.

He had been as high as seventh on Saturday before his wet-weather tyres went off and he slipped back in the race two placings.

Team tech boss Oscar Fiorinotto was pleased with what he saw from his young driver. "It was a good solid debut for Davison, and he had a real go in his first real hitout on fresh tyres in a Dynamik car," he said after the race

Team Dynamik's other driver, Tony Longhurst, spent the early part of the weekend familiarising himself with V8 Supercar racing again after some time out of the game.

However, he was in the thick of the action midway through the first race when a tag from behind spun the Boomerang Phonecard #45 to the rear of the field.

Come Saturday's race Longhurst's experience shone in the gloomy conditions, when he carved his way from 30th to 16th. Midpack chaos claimed him again however in the final race, when he was forced into a sandtrap and could not make it back on track.

"We fielded two good reliable cars and the whole Team worked together superbly," said Fiorinotto, evaluating the whole weekend.

"The two new engines performed well and the cars were fast all weekend, reflecting some developments we have made over the off-season."
