Read New cars for Crompton & Jones

Brad Jones and Neil Crompton will debut brand-new Falcons at this weekend’s Clipsal 500 in Adelaide.

Jones’ new OzEmail mount was built in record time – just four weeks – after last-minute delays in constructing the roll cage. Jones’ old Falcon, the car new teammate John Bowe will pilot this week, took more than four months to complete.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to publicly thank my entire team for the fantastic effort they have put in over the last month,” Jones said.

“When we built the last car it took us four months and we thought that was quick. To have this one done in under four weeks is just amazing.”

Jones said the Peter Beehag-manufactured body shell features a revolutionary new design, increasing strength while significantly reducing the car’s weight.

00 Motorsport’s Neil Crompton, returning to the V8 Supercar circuit fulltime this season, will debut the Melbourne-based team’s second in-house built AU XR8 racer in Adelaide.

"The team has been working overtime putting my new car together and I can't wait to finally get behind the wheel,” said Crompton, who put the car through its paces at Winton Raceway today.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
