Chef [iV8SC13R25,R26,R27] Winton 360, Winton - 23-25 August

Its 4 weeks until the V8's invade their next race circuit, spending their time at Winton...

Test track to many, Winton usually puts on an interesting show... the Queensland teams are usually more competitive than their lack of miles there compared to their opposition might suggest

Will we see #1 and #888 at the front of the field, or will their version of Annus Horribilis (i.e. not winning by half a lap) continue?

Can the Winton race get Chaztastic? It was a test venue for him too when working with MWM and FPR...

Will the Fujitsu squad show everyone what's what? Well one of them...

And can the Benzes get their act together, and convert Friday and qualifying speed into race results?

We shall see...

will the boys at winton have to widen the turns or extend the ripple strips to accomodate the egos of some of the top dogs, or will dunlop build another tyre ?

Could we the same from QR, the young guns taking it up to them, ?

Will FPR keep going on their new found speed and reliability, ?

T8 will hit back, BJR should do well, Brighty and Coultard could be in the mix.
Maybe a GRM clean sweep.

Speaking of GRM I've been wondering what's up with Premat. He was really strong at Adelaide and was running 2nd before a failure at Pukekohe... But the mid season has just been horrible... Especially recently with Hidden Valley and Ipswich... Will Winton be any different?

This will be my first v8 round for ages. Never been to Winton before, what's the best part of the track to watch from?

All of it, walk around, lots of good spots, many people sit along whats called the old pit straight (between 2 and 3). Good views and close to stuff

I prefer around at corner 7.

But winton is a great viewing track , you can see 75% of the track from almost anywhere

Unlike the street circuits that V8SA seem determined to have more of!

Thanks, Pecks. We're leaving Brissy Wed AM. Our first visit to Winton, our logic is to see it before it's replaced by a street race somewhere in Vic.

I'm sure it will happen.

Sounds like the perfect week-end. Apart from the golf.

Best part of the golf is stopping at the nineteenth hole.

Thanks peckstar looking forward to it. Now I'm tossing up whether to go Saturday or Sunday, I can only afford to to go one day with a paddock pass. Was thinking of going on Friday as its my birthday but I think work might have a problem with that haha.

From what I've heard, this will be Mr Premat's last race weekend at Winton...
