Glenn Seton Racing

Ford Credit Racing's Glenn Seton is stopping at nothing in his quest to return to the winner's list of V8 Supercar racing, when he climbs aboard a greatly improved Ford Falcon AUXR8 at the VB 300, round six of the 2002 at Perth's Barbagallo Raceway from June 28 -30.

Nicknamed the Silver Streak, Seton will run the same car that qualified on the front row at Bathurst in 2001. The car had been totally rebuilt with a range of improvements made since a major accident at the opening round of the 2002 series in Adelaide back in March.

The Ford Credit Racing team has used the three-month period to totally go-over the Ford Falcon AUXR8 Supercar, incorporating new ideas that are aimed to improve speed and traction.

The entire car, including the interior, has been given a fresh coat of silver paint. The Silver Streak is set for a final test session at Winton Raceway in Victoria on Monday 24 June before being loaded into the team's transporter for the 4,000 kilometre journey across the country.

"This car was very good before Adelaide, and I'm sure it will be even better now with these improvements," said Seton.

"The main area we've concentrated on developing is the stiffness of the chassis. With the introduction of the new Dunlop control tyre for 2002, we've found it hard to get good traction out of the tyres, we believe that the stiffer chassis will help improve this situation

"Last year in WA I qualified on the front row, so I do enjoy racing at Barbagallo and with the improved Silver Streak at my disposal I'm confident of success out West".

The team will arrive at Barbagallo on Thursday afternoon to begin preparations for what is a going to be a very busy weekend of racing.

Seton has an impressive record in WA with two overall wins (1987 and 1995) and three other podium finishes, as well as three front row starts from 13 visits.

For the first time WA fans will enjoy pit-stop racing as well as longer races. The VB 300 will encompass three separate 100 kilometre races over two days, as well as practice, qualifying and a top-10 shootout.

A range of improvements have been made to the WA track, including a wider pitlane that now allows the extra pit equipment needed for tyre changing during races.

Be nice for Glen to break through for a win but at this stage I'll take any Ford at the moment.

Craig seem s to love that track so lets hope he can continue to put some pressure on for the sake of the championship.

I too would love to see Glenn have a strong finish to the year

i just want a good showing from ford, it would be good if ford are the majority of the top ten even a round win from coming second and different winners from the races (ala marcos at hidden valley in '01)

(edit: if that makes any sense)

as big_pete was speaking about diffs, i noticed on www.hsv.com.au that when they give you the V8supercar specs for the HRT cars, they dont list what sort of diff they use?
Funny that
