V8 SuperTourer - Media - Test Day
Blast off -- 16 cars give a taster of what's to come at Hampton Downs
The first official test on Friday of the new V8 SuperTourers at Hampton
Downs was a massive success - with all 16 cars out running and all
completing plenty of mileage during a pair of two hour sessions during the
No official times were taken, but the whole field proved incredibly well
matched as the drivers got used to their cars. There were no major
incidents and no major breakages.
There was also much to talk about with two time Bathurst winner Steve
Richards debuting his CRC Ford Falcon V8 SuperTourer for John McIntyre
Racing, Daniel Gaunt filling in impressively for Greg Murphy (on V8
Supercar testing duties) and the first public appearance of the cars of
Andy Booth, Ant Pedersen, Jonny Reid, Colin Corkery, Kayne Scott and both
of the MPC Supercheap cars.
A late finish to the build proved no obstacle for Scott as he blitzed the
virgin white car round the challenging North Waikato track all day with no
major problems - and that was pretty much the story of the day for all of
the drivers and teams.
With ticket sales accelerating as the first big weekend approaches, the
cars were given a resounding thumbs up by the teams, drivers, a large
gathering of media and photographers and several hundred spectators who
took the day off work to enjoy the free action!
