Went down to Eastern Creek today for the free entry pre-season test of all the manufacturers. All I can say is this year is going to be a great season.

One thing that really blew me away was the sound of the Erebus Mercedes?? Where as most of the Holden/Ford/Nissans sound like a V8 Supercar ... the Mercs sound more like a lower revving F1 car. Really high pitch scream. Must have something to do with firing order/exhaust???

Anyway, good to see the teams out there, the cars look great, and a big crowd for a non race event.

Will post photos shortly.

P.S. Poor old Todd Kelly looked to have blown an engine coming onto the straight early in the day ... hope not a sign of things to come.

Anyone else get there today??

The end result ... 'clean the oil off the floor boys' ...

Fitting location for the Nissan garage ..

Hopefully it's less boring than the last few years
The sport needs some "personalities " and bad boys not the current PR schooled drivers

Great pics and the new cars look good, at least our V8 supercar shapes the whole car to look like a Holden, Ford, Merc or Nissan, not like Nascar where only the front nose piece resembles the so called product car.
