Lowndes and Seton to share Bathurst drive
By Bob Jennings
The Sydney Morning Herald
Wednesday July 2 2003

Craig Lowndes and Glenn Seton will pair up in a formidable combination for Ford Performance Racing's attack on this year's major V8 supercar endurance races, the Bathurst 1000 and Sandown 500.
The combination will be one of the strongest in the highest-profile events of the season as Ford continues its efforts to claw back results and credibility from the dominant Holden camp.

Lowndes won the Bathurst classic in 1996 and the Sandown races in 1996 and 1997, while Seton, a Bathurst veteran who began driving there as a teenager with his father in a Ford Capri, has been agonisingly close to victory on several occasions, only to have it slip from his grasp.

Lowndes said yesterday the partnership was something he and Seton had discussed for some time.

"I am happy with it, and so is he," Lowndes said. "So far, we seem to like identical things in the car, and we have been comparing notes when we go testing and racing. I would be delighted to score my second win, and Glenn is well overdue for his first."

Lowndes started this V8 Supercar season in promising fashion, winning the Phillip Island round, but admitted that his team's performances had "stagnated a bit" recently.
"We're busy building new cars and soon we'll be moving into a new workshop, and we haven't had the opportunity to go testing. But that will be resolved in time for the major races and by Bathurst we will be much stronger than we are now."

With a wide-based program of support for its teams, Ford is now beginning to reap the benefits, with Marcos Ambrose and the Queensland-based Stone Brothers team having won the past four championship rounds.

This is the first time four have been won consecutively by a Ford since 1977, when Allan Moffat went on to win five in a row in his XC Falcon.

Re: FPR Bathurst pairing named.

Sorry, I se this is yesterday's news posted by XY Falcon.
Anyway, it's what I was hoping for. It'd be good to see Seton win after all them times he came so close.

Re: FPR Bathurst pairing named.

Well no matter how much I would like Ambrose to win Bathurst, it would be a dream to see Seton win (Ambrose second). Seton the poor guy has had so much bad luck at the track and deserves the win. When it does happen I would like to see him do the last stint, to see the flag. Go Seto!!! Go FORD
