[V8SC09R07&08]Symmons Plains Raceway, Tasmania (merged)

And so it is that the V8 Supercar circus moves to warm, , sunny, , Tasmania, for Round 4 (*ahem* Event 4). Another whitewash for Triple 8? After their efforts here last year, one might think so.

Will Whincup run off the road on the cool down lap again after being egged on by Crompo and Matty White? Only time will tell ...

Money is on David Thexton as well, last minute call up and a drive from the back of the grid!

Don't worry about the V8's, more interested in watching Akermenace drive in the Mini series.

Weather will be the big factor this time of the year!!

Grid girls bring your thermal's!

of coarse not, need pic's for that.

i'm predicting there will be a few "optimistic" passes down at the hairpin from people on options.

I like "special". Anyway, I just hope something other than a 888 Falcon wins, for interests sake. I think if GT doesn't score here though, forget the Championship. HRT to put all eggs in 1 basket for DAVO!!!
As for GRM, both cars in Top 15 - that would be a good result. Not a circuit that we have been strong at in recent years.

What did old Mike Raymond used too say "Horsepower reins at the Plains". It's hard to see anything other than a Vodafone car doing the business

Mr Marshall is reported in AA to think his old BF will have better aero in a straight line so he should have front running pace Hopefully Mr Bright will be afforded that luxury as well....

I don't believe that 888 have better horsepower than anyone else (in fact they probably have less than some others) - It's the way their chassis/set-up gets the available horsepower 'down' to the track - whilst still being gentle on their tyres.

If we know one thing about V8 Supercars - You need to look after your tyres to be quick!
