V8 Supercars Townsville 400 Sprint - day 1
The famous and fantastic Australian V8 Supercars championship is continuing this weekend with another big event called Castrol EDGE Townsville 400. It will feature three races (two sprint and one long) on the 2.85 kilometers course.
Day 1 was practice day with three practice sessions of 30 minutes each. The Ford Falcon is dominating the shorter tracks this season so it is not surprising that Ford driver Mark Winterbottom was fastest on the first practice session with a time of 1:13.6126.
However, it was surprising that the fastest time in the second practice was achieved by Mercedes Erebus driver Will Davison who showed that Mercedes has the required power and speed to win and that he is driver who knows how to bring it all together.
However, at the third practice session, Ford was the fastest again but this time at the hands of Chas Mostert who scored a time of 1:13.2527. Stay tuned for more coverage tomorrow as we will cover another practice, qualifying session and the first race of the weekend.
