The Mercury Cars Guide : May 16th 2009
Saturday, May 16, 2009 Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Drivers swap cars in Symmons speed quest Marcos Ambrose Ambrose to race on track and online with JAMES BRESNEHAN FORD-backed drivers Mark Winterbottom and Shane Van Gisbergen have had a technology-swap in order to test eachothers’ cars. The swap came in search for extra speed before theV8Super- car championship arrives in Tasmania in two weeks for round five at Symmons Plains. The pair drove each other’s Falcons at Winton last week in a combined effort between the two official Ford-backed teams, Ford Performance Racing (Win- terbottom) and Stone Brothers Racing (Van Gisbergen), to get faster. The comparisons from the drivers will be combined in an effort to find more speed for Symmons. ‘‘The proof will be in the pudding,’’ saidFPRteamprinci- pal Tim Edwards. ‘‘We will cross-compare the feedback from the drivers — it was a positive exercise.’’ Van Gisbergen, placed eighth in the championship heading to Tasmania, enjoyed the experi- ment. ‘‘It’s all about making these cars faster and catching the red pigs [Holdens],’’ he said. TEST RUN: Stone Brothers Racing driver Shane Van Gisbergen in action. Winterbottom’s car had the better brake package and mid- corner grip, while Van Gisber- gen’s car had better exit speed. ‘‘I need to get back to SBR now and work through it with the team,’’ Van Gisbergen said. ‘‘I’ve not had any experience developing a car before but I’m enjoying the challenge. ‘‘I’ve only driven the SBR supercar before so it’s interest- ing to try someone else’s car.’’ BOXTRAILER STEEL 6X4 0 BOX TRAILERS x2, new 8x5 tandem axle, galv $4,000 ono each.

Ambrose became the face of the world’s most advanced online racing simulation provider this week as it makes a marketing push Down Under.
