Having just missed out on a top 15 round finish in the season opener in Adelaide, Marcus Marshall says he is looking for more speed from the IRWIN Racing Falcon as the V8 Supercar Series heads to Eastern Creek for the second round of the year.

Marshall secured a best result of 13th in the second race in Adelaide which saw him finish the round in 16th place despite suffering with the balance of the car, and the former single-seater racer is focused on pushing for better results in Sydney this weekend.

"Adelaide was about letting the race come to us, we will have to go for it from the outset at Eastern Creek," he said. "We had some issues in Adelaide, but importantly we understand what needed changing and I'm really looking forward to showing better outright speed at Eastern Creek.

"Eastern Creek is a flowing circuit and I'm sure we can show our strength on that type of layout. We want to start the weekend on the right note with a good run in practice and carry that over to qualifying. From that point I'm sure we can grab more positions as the weekend continues."

Race engineer Greg Foletta has been busy overseeing improvements to the IRWIN Racing Falcon and he said the team is confident of making steps forward.

"The outing in Adelaide provided us valuable information on the car," he said. "We have instigated some improvements and I'm sure we will see the benefit of these at Eastern Creek.

"Marcus did a great job in the races and brought home a car without a scratch on it. That meant the team could fully concentrate on the improvements required to go forward."
