2013 Clipsal 500 Pre Race

Before looking into the event itself.  Lets look at the changes to the V8 Supercars for the 2013 season.  They look similar on the outside but many changes went into this new generation.

Introduction to the new season.

Highlights from qualifying and Shane Van Gisbergen’s Pole lap.


Sloooooooooooooowwwwww Moooootion.

Portraits of CIAS 2013

I’ve found the Autoshow to provide great photo opportunities.  Unfortunately, the background ruins a lot of the shots.  I’ve tried to go for up close photos to fix that.  Practice, practice, practice.  I honestly didn’t think I’d be uploading my own photos as much as I have lately.  More to come!!

V8 Supercars 2013

Pre Season testing for the V8 folks.  I have no idea how to predict this season.  All new cars (even though they look similar to last years), 2 new manufacturers (in Nissan and Mercedes), and new teams and sponsors.  I’d say its hard to bet against the yardstick in Triple 8 Race Engineering, now with Redbull branding.  Ford will again be right up there with Holden, you can count on that.  Nissan and Mercedes are a crap shoot.  I do beleive with the additionlal testing Nissan will have the upper hand.  Can’t wait for the season to start.
