This is an excellent racing circuit that has a bit of everything, from fast straights, to tight turns and long radius corners. At only 2.4km in length, it is deceptively difficult to get absolutely right and in past years has caught out some of the best drivers in its hungry sand traps. As the only major motor racing event in Perth, huge crowd numbers support the event and it is usually produces great races. I won this event in 2008 - its a beauty.

Pre-race report

5 May 2012

Cant wait to check out the new pit garages at Barbagallo raceway. V8's are introducing a new format to Sundays racing this weekend with two 15min qualifying sessions on Sunday and two 50 lap races. Looking at the forecast, there is a lot of rain around in Perth for the weekend, it looks to be an interesting weekend. 

Post-race report

6 May 2012

Solid weekend with three podiums, 1st, 3rd and 2nd, that last race will go down as one of the best finishes to a V8 Supercar race with Will trying to hold on to 33 lap old soft tyres and Whincup trying to pass him, and i was on their tail with a lot of speed and got past Whincup for another FPR 1-2.
