subaru car perth : DRIVERS competing in the Century Batteries Australian GT Production CarChampionship will be relying on an unusual component of their vehicles whenthey race in round two in Adelaide on April 8 - their headlights.Championship organisers PROCAR Australia have scheduled a two-hour nightrace, finishing at 7.30 pm during the Clipsal 500 meeting on the Adelaidestreet circuit.A field of 44 cars covering five classes has entered the race, which followsthe success of a shorter twilight event in Adelaide last year.All the cars will already have working headlights because GT Productionrules require them to compete in near-standard specification, but it'sunlikely to be a case of the car with the brightest lights being the winner.A compulsory pit stop for a tyre change, with most teams also changingdrivers, will add an uncertainty factor.After the first round in Western Australia on March 19, line honours inAdelaide are expected to be fought out between the turbocharged Mazda RX7s,Mitsubishi Lancer RS Evolution V's and Subaru Impreza WRX STi's, plus a loneV8 Holden Commodore HSV ClubSport R8.Sydney's Ric Shaw, who leads the championship with 32 points, clearly wonboth round-one legs in his Mazda RX-7 Twin-turbo but expects the other carsto be closer in Adelaide.
subaru car perth : "I'm looking forward to defending my championship lead in Adelaide, but Iexpect the other guys are going to be tougher to beat after a few weeks ofdevelopment since Perth," Shaw said.There will be plenty of action in the five GT Production classes, too, withV8 Touring points leader Scott Loadsman defending against four other HoldenCommodores and two Ford Falcons.Last year's winner Jim Richards will not defend his title, having moved hisPorsche 911 GT3 into the new Century Batteries GTP Nations Cup forultra-high performance cars, which will stage its debut round on theAdelaide weekend.Century Batteries Australian GT Production Car ChampionshipRound 2 Adelaide, 8 April 200015 Bob Hughes/N/A (Mitsubishi Lancer RS Turbo Evo V)19 Sharyn Wood/Ross Palmer (Mitsubishi Lancer RS Turbo Evo V) 23 Barry Morcom/Ric Shaw (Mazda RX-7 Twin Turbo)25 Richard Davis/N/A (Holden Commodore HSV VS GTS-R)34 Mark King/Rod Wilson (Mitsubishi Lancer RS Turbo Evo V)35 Ric Shaw/Geoff Full (Mazda RX-7 Twin Turbo)38 Dennis Gilbert /Hart Mason (Mitsubishi Lancer RS Turbo Evo V)40 Dwayne Bewley/Trevor Sheumack (Subaru Impreza WRX STi )50 Grant Kenny/N/A (Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version IV)51 Scott Jacob/N/A (Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version IV)57 Graham Alexander/N/A (Mitsubishi Lancer RS Turbo Evo V)61 Trevor Haines/NA (Subaru WRX STi Version IV)71 Phil Kirkham/Ken Douglas (Mazda RX-7 Twin Turbo)87 Peter Floyd/N/A (Mazda RX-7 Twin Turbo)91 Gary Deane/Jim McKnoulty (Subaru Impreza WRX Turbo)96 Don Pulver/Terry Shiel (Subaru Impreza WRX Turbo)97 Ross Dillon/Anthony Scott (Holden HSV Commodore VT ClubSport R8)

subaru car perth : Tapio Laukkanen and Kaj Lindström are battling hard to score their firstever FIA World Rally Championship points after steering their Ford Focusthrough today's second leg of the Rally Australia in seventh. The Finns, ononly their second event in a four-wheel drive World Rally Car, displayedgreat maturity on the gravel covered tracks south of Perth which hosted theaction.Having started the day in sixth, 31-year-old Laukkanen enjoyed better roadconditions than those drivers ahead of him on the six forest speed testsaround the town of Harvey. A liberal covering of loose marble-like stonesmade driving difficult for the first few competitors, especially on thestages where the lack of trees ensured the roads were bone dry but gravely.Laukkanen, whose only previous experience of this rally was in a two-wheeldrive car, highlighted the difference between that and his Focus. "It'slike comparing a bicycle to a motor-bike," he said. "The Focus feelswell-balanced and of course it's much, much faster. It's quite easy toforget just how big the differences are so I have to be very careful,especially as today's stages were smoother than last year."
subaru car perth : Apart from minor brake difficulties and a small water leak this morningwhich required a new engine cooling unit, Laukkanen had no troublesthroughout the 141km of stages until this evening's final run through thefloodlit riverside Langley Park super special in the heart of Perth."We had a minor electrical problem which caused the engine to stop twice,"said Laukkanen. "But we have a good start position tomorrow and we'll begoing flat out all the way to try to get into the points." The incidentcost 20 seconds, dropping Laukkanen from sixth to seventh but he starts thethird and final leg just 16.9sec behind Toni Gardemeister.Richard Burns (Subaru) grabbed the lead on the opening stage and held ituntil the penultimate test when tactics dictated he deliberately slowed toensure a more favourable starting position tomorrow. He ended the day inthird, just 4.2sec behind new leader Tommi Mäkinen (Mitsubishi), who has theunenviable prospect of running first on the road. The two are split bychampionship leader Marcus Grönholm (Peugeot). Elsewhere Kenneth Eriksson(Hyundai) made the most of the cleaner road conditions to climb to fifth.Overnight leader Juha Kankkunen (Subaru) was the principal casualty, thefour-time winner going off the road on today's penultimate stage. The onlyother major retirement was Alister McRae (Hyundai) who stopped after 3.5kmof stage 15 with a broken track control arm.
