WELCOME TO THE SCAR Magazine, our look back at the first half of the 2012 V8 Supercars Championship for Supercheap Auto Racing. V8 Supercars has never been more competitive than what it is right now. I might sound like a broken record saying that, but it's never been more true. Every race there are 28 world class cars and drivers on the grid ready to win, and all have a chance of taking home the trophy. More often than not, the field is separated by less than one second. There is no margin for error. We have seen two teams monopolise the winner's podium this year, proving that if you can get everything right you can be hard to beat. We are currently 17th in points – not where we want to be and far from what we are capable of. Our racing speed has been solid, but qualifying has been an issue – not just for SCAR, but also for our team-mates at the Holden Racing Team At times, we have shown glimpses and we have a lot to be positive about, especially after our strong run at the Coates Hire Ipswich 300, where we qualified eighth and fifth, and finished fifth and sixth in the two races – all season’s bests. We have also been unlucky, but you have to make your own luck in this game. Ipswich was a confidence booster, but we’re not resting in our quest to achieve even better. Our resolve is to make the second half of the season count and we are working hard to achieve that. There are some big races coming up, none bigger than Australia's Great Race, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, which will celebrate 50 years at Mount Panorama. The race is important to our team and sponsors, none moreso than Supercheap Auto. My co-driver this year is ex-Formula 1 race Christian Klien, and we make a strong pairing, good enough to win the race. Nothing would give me more pleasure than carrying the Peter Brock Trophy into SCA's head office – and that's our goal.


SCAR NEWS russell ingall draws level with the great peter brock SUPERCHEAP AUTO RACING'S RUSSELL Ingall drew level with Peter Brock at the recent Coates Hire Ipswich 300. Ingall made his 212th Australian Touring Car/V8 Supercar Championship start, moving him to equal third on the all-time most starts list with the late, great Brock – only John Bowe (225) and Mark Skaife (220) with more. “To have my name mentioned in the same breath as Peter Brock is an honour,” Ingall said. “It's fantastic to still be racing V8 Supercars and, most importantly, still be competitive, but I never dreamed of racing as long as Peter.” Ingall said he had fond memories of Brock, watching him race at Bathurst, then racing his hero. “I remember when I was a kid waking up early Sunday morning to watch Bathurst with my dad and going for Brocky, then all of a sudden I was sitting next to him on the grid,” he said. “One of his last races at Oran Park we raced wheel-to-wheel. “He was a clean racer, you could race doorhandle-to-doorhandle without touching. There was no way I was going to get mixed up and send him off-track, he was such a legend with the fans I would have been crucified.” Ingall would not swap his V8 career, now in its 17th fulltime year. “People ask me if I wished I was starting all over again now, but I wouldn't swap what I've had for anything,” he said. “The eras I've been through, with Brock, Johnson, Perkins, Bowe – all the real greats, the true legends – and into the current era with all the young guns, it feels like I've had the best of both worlds.” Ingall made his ATCC/V8SC debut with Larry Perkins renowned Castrol

Perkins Racing Holden team in 1996. He earned his place alongside the Bathurst hero after the pair claimed their now famous last to first victory in Australia's Great Race the previous year. Ingall has made 492 race starts, winning 27 times and finishing

top three on 90 occasions. He has finished inside the top 10 in series points an incredible 13 times in 16 seasons. Four-times a series runnerup (1998, 99, 2001, 04), Ingall crowned his career by winning the 2005 V8 Supercar Championship.

FORMER F1 DRIVER CHRISTIAN Klien has signed to drive for Supercheap Auto Racing in this year's V8 Supercar endurance races. Klien will partner 2005 V8 Supercar Champion Russell Ingall in the #66 SCAR Commodore in the Sandown 500 (14-16 September) and the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama on 4-7 October – the 50th anniversary of Australia's Great Race. Klien started 49 Grand Prix, making his F1 debut for Jaguar in 2004. He also drove for Red Bull and Hispania Racing and raced in the Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park three times, finishing seventh with Red Bull in 2005. He continues to be involved in F1, working for Williams F1 as its simulator driver, testing setups overnight following Friday practice sessions. The 29 year old Austrian has raced a V8 Supercar once previously, partnering Paul Dumbrell in the Armor All Gold Coast 600 last October. He also raced at Mount Panorama in February, finishing ninth overall in the Bathurst 12 Hour GT Production Car race. “Mount Panorama is one of the world's great circuits and the Bathurst 1000 is world-famous –

it's a must-do race in any racing driver's career,” Klien said. “To be able to take part in the 50th anniversary Bathurst with one of V8's heroes is exciting – I can't wait to get to the mountain in October.” Klien has made a number of trips to Australia already this year, taking part in the enduro co-driver sessions during practice at Phillip Island and Townsville, as well as attending a test at Winton.

CLIPSAL 500 ADELAIDE'S POPULAR CLIPSAL 500 returned to the opening slot in the V8 Supercar Championship for the first time in three years and, coincidentally, provided Russell Ingall with his best start to the season since then. Ingall and Supercheap Auto Racing left the City of Churches 11th in series points after solid, consistent performances in each of the 250km races – the SCAR Commodore home in 13th in Races 1 and 2. Trying to take advantage of an

page 8

opportune Safety Car in the crashmarred R1, Ingall missed his pit bay, effectively giving himself a drivethrough penalty. Having to enter the pits a third time, the team gambled on getting the #66 home on a single tank and in fuel saving mode Ingall ran as high as sixth with four laps to go before a ‘splash and dash’ was required to get him over the line. “First hit out, first race, everything went

pretty well – though it would have to finish in single digits. Despite a c hiccups, the car ran faultless,” Inga “I effectively gave myself a d through, which really cost a top but that won’t happen again!” Race 2 brought the same res although unlike the previous d were no big accidents or appea by the Safety Car.

secure a solid bank of points. “I’m happy – it was the first complete weekend together for me and Walkinshaw Racing and at the hardest track of the season. To come away with a straight car and be equal 11th in points is good,” Ingall said. “The car wasn’t hard to drive, I wasn’t fighting it, so even though there wasn’t a Safety Car I’m feeling refreshed. I was able to press on and exploit the car’s pace and we passed a lot of front runners.”

STRENGTH TO PERFORM, FREEDOM TO DRIVE


2012 v8 supercars rd nc

AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX RUSSELL INGALL V8 SUPERCAR'S annual nonchampionship Australian Grand Prix event as the most winning driver in its history With no points on offer, championship pressure was eased off the field however, Ingall predicted it was going to be a hard fought contest nevertheless. Ingall had hoped to keep the #66 Supercheap Auto Racing Commodore straight for the following V8 round, but those plans sadly went aray in Race 3. On just Lap 1, Ingall was using caution to steer clear

of a potential accident when a number of cars began spinning. Unable to avoid the collision, the Enforcer became an innocent player when his car was rammed from behind, the impact resulting in significant damage, leaving Ingall frustrated at the actions of his younger rivals: “I left enough of a gap because I could see things going down ahead of me, but the guys behind don’t seem to be looking past their bonnets,” Ingall said. After the spectacular incident, an incredible round-the-clock rebuild was undertaken by the

SCAR crew with the Enforcer on the grid for the final race. Starting rear of grid, Ingall slowly marched forward over the 15 laps, finishing 18th – a huge effort. “This car really should have been back at the workshop and on the jig, but it’s obviously a contractual obligation of V8 Supercars with the GP to have a certain amount of cars on the track,” Ingall said. “I reckon [V8 officials] should have come down and shaken the hands of each and every member of crew for their phenomenal efforts.”

tasmania challenge TITLE POINTS WERE BACK in the equation for the third event of the season, the Tasmania Challenge at Symmons Plains Raceway near Launceston. To meet the shipping deadline to the Apple Isle, the SCAR crew were in a race against time to repair the #66 SCAR Commodore after its spectacular AGP altercation. Their efforts paid off by making the boat, although Ingall’s show of encouraging pace in Races 3 and 4 were hampered by bad luck – finishing 24th and 25th. Ingall had moved forward in the weekend's first race, up to 16th from 19th however any chance

of further improvement came to a grinding halt six laps from the finish with an electrical gremlin cutting power at the exit of Turn 1. Eventually re-firing two laps later, the Enforcer was able to finish and guarantee some points. “It was a frustrating finish to what was a promising performance. For some reason, the car lost all power and I was left stranded for a while,” Ingall said. The team singled themselves out for Sunday’s race, choosing a bold strategy of starting on softs – the only car in the field to do so – that looked to have paid off until disaster struck on Lap 16.

Gaining track position early in the 84-lap race, Ingall was sitting 11th and on a charge as the first round of pit stops began on Lap 10. Six laps later, he was leading! On L30 an ill-timed Safety Car period began and that’s when the day unravelled... The SCAR Commodore dropped off its jacks before refuelling had finished, Ingall exiting the pit immediately and ripping the fuel hose apart – drawing a 10sec penalty. Officials then handed down another drive-through penalty for allegedly not fully completing the first penalty. Day over.

hamilton itm 400 IT WAS THE FINAL time the V8s would visit the streets of Hamilton for the annual New Zealand event – the scene for Russell Ingall's first top-10 finish for the season and with Walkinshaw Racing. The Enforcer jumped four positions and up to 15th in the point standings after a 10th and 14th in the weekend's two races. Ingall started Saturday's 59-lap, 200km race from 16th but quickly progressed with a strong opening lap sequence, although a good result looked in jeopardy when the #66 clipped the notorious back straight chicane tyre bundles, tearing a large chunk

out of the front splitter. The switch to soft compound tyres came on Lap 10, improving the car's drivability. After pitting for the second time on L34, Ingall sat 15th with 17 laps remaining when the race resumed from its sole Safety Car period. Ingall charged over the final stages and was into the 10 with just a few laps remaining, even challenging Fabian Coulthard for ninth, but the two slid wide, burning up their tyres – Ingall happy to come home 10th. “When we got onto the softs ’[the car]’ came back a

AFTER SOME CONSTENATION AS to whether the V8 Supercar Championship would return to New Zealand in 2013, it was announced that a new agreement had been reached with the Auckland City Council to return to the popular Pukekohe Raceway Park. The V8s ran at Pukekohe from 2001 to 2007 before moving to Hamilton, local hero Greg Murphy winning for the then Supercheap Auto Racing in 2005. Pukekohe will undergo signficant renovations in time for next year.

Q&A WITH RUSSELL INGALL’S RACE ENGINEER Q: This year, you have teamed up with Supercheap Auto and Russell Ingall. What's it like working alongside Rusty in the V8 Supercar Championship? ROB STARR: So far, it's been good. As with any driver you begin a working relationship with, it takes time to get things rolling. Development never comes as quickly as you might hope – especially these days as testing is so tightly controlled. I feel we are getting more in tune to what we both want, we're learning what he wants from us and we're learning how to give it to him as the rounds go by. We're working better together and he's getting a much better understanding of the car. It's a different challenge with a different driver and it's not easy to get them settled in the car quickly with limited running. We're getting there – it'll take more time and test days to reach our goal. Q: How has Russell settled into the Clayton family? RS: Yes, he has settled in very well. In a lot of ways, what he wants from the car is similar to how James Courtney has his car which helps us with feedback and applying his setup changes to the #66 Commodore. He's earned a wealth of experience over the years as well so he's not trying to learn a new car, he's trying to learn our car and develop it so it's a little easier for him to steer. Q: You've been at Walkinshaw Racing/Holden Racing Team for quite some time now, what are some of the highlights you seen since your time begun there? RS: I've been working there since 1991, not long after it was formed by Tom Walkinshaw in 1990, so I have seen my fair share of highlights. I've seen five Bathurst wins, six championships and 200 all-time wins while working with great people such as Craig Lowndes and Mark Skaife during the dominant era of the Holden Racing Team – and I look forward to seeing more in the future! Those are definitely the best moments I have seen, it doesn't get much better than winning at the Great Race and V8 Supercar Championships as well.

You never stop enjoying working in this environment. You work together with different people with different traits which offers a challenge, but you work together to achieve the best possible result. Q: How do you think you're firming for the rest of the season, especially for the endurance races at the Sandown 500 and Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000? RS: The big races are certainly what we're working towards, especially with the amount of hard work we've put in at the beginning of the season. If we keep progressing the way we've been progressing our results are sure to keep improving during the season. Obviously we've had some tough meetings but we have also had a number of strong results and our race pace has been good. But like anyone else, we're working towards the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 where we hope to come on even stronger.

A win is never off the cards! You don't go racing in V8 Supercars unless you think you're in with half a chance of winning. Q: What about a win? RS: A win is never off the cards! You don't go racing in V8 Supercars unless you think you're in with half a chance of winning. We've already shown plenty of promise this season, with every lap we complete, we're improve and so does the relationship with Russell.

Q: You mentioned Lowndes and Skaife before, how was it working with two champions of that calibre? RS: They were both great to work with, but great for different reasons. On one hand, you had Craig who was pretty laid back and relaxed about everything, but still achieved great results during his time at HRT. On the other hand and probably the extreme opposite of Craig was Skaife. He was full of knowledge and was so determined – which he used to his advantage to get results, but that was all part of Mark Skaife, he strives hard and was a joy to work with too. Now, it's a joy to work with Russell.

perth challenge PERTH'S BARBAGALLO HAD UNDERGONE a muchwelcomed $15 million upgrade in time for May's Trading Post Perth Challenge. Supercheap Auto Racing's Russell Ingall left WA 15th in points, but he could have been higher. In the weekend's first of three races, Ingall produced a great drive to charge from 22nd to 11th, the team gambling by starting on soft tyres. The move appeared to be paying off early, Ingall making positions during the early stages, but the hoped-for rain didn't failed to eventuate “If it had rained we would have had our wishes granted. I feel we're building momentum, we keep chipping away and the results are coming for Supercheap Auto Racing,” Ingall said. Sunday featured two races and two qualifying sessions. In the first, Ingall qualified 19th then made up two spots to cross the line in 17th, but the day wasn't over yet.

The veteran scored a season best fifth in qualifying for day's second race, but Ingall was hit with a penalty for a minor infringement – nosing his car into the team garage at the end of the session – and had to start from rear-of-grid. To make matters worse, he was penalised further when there was a mistake in the deployment of the Safety Car during the race, with those pitting immediately on the yellow, including Ingall, losing ground to others that waited another lap. Despite the issues, Ingall finished a creditable 13th. At the end of the weekend, Ingall was understandably frustrated. “I don't think I've ever been as embarrassed to be part of this sport as what I have been today,” Ingall said. “The bonnet went into the garage, but the car was pushed out straight away. No work was done on the car. “Then there was Safety Car drama, what a joke. How many times does this have to happen?” How could you argue?

PHILLIP ISLAND 300 WHILE HE SEEMINGLY LACKED outright qualifying speed at the fast, sweeping Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit, Supercheap Auto Racing's Russell Ingall had good race speed and strategy to grab reasonable results in Races 10 and 11 – 11th and 15th respectively. Ingall began the opening 140km (32lap) race from 24th and following a Lap 2 excursion onto the slippery grass to avoid a crashing Alex Premat, his SCAR team brought him into pit soon after. Although a brave strategy risk, it paid dividends for the second stop – allowing the Enforcer to take on less fuel, saving service time and gaining track position as a result. With consistent speed, he overtook rivals one-by-one, dodging the chaos to finish on the cusp of the top 10. “It was an entertaining race, we made

page 24

gains in the final stint of the race to close to the cars ahead of us –it was just a matter of picking them off,” Ingall said. “We passed a lot of cars and I reckon we should find ourselves inside the top 10 because there were guys ahead of us that should have been removed from the final results because of their driving!” Qualifying 24th on Sunday, the SCAR ‘ReEnforcements’ decided to start the 200km (45-lap) event from pit lane, allowing Ingall to top up his fuel as well as avoid potential first lap incidents. By the second scheduled stop on Lap 25, Ingall had climbed to 21st and was fuelled to the end. He again made track positions and by the end of the race had moved up to 15th. The weekend’s results helped Ingall move to 14th on the points table.


2012 v8 supercars rd 05 AT PHILLIP ISLAND RUSSELL Ingall made his 209th Australian Touring Car/V8 Supercar Championship event start, the mark equalling Glenn Seton in fourth on the all-time most starts list and behind only Peter Brock (212), Mark Skaife (220) and John Bowe (225).

SCAR ENDURO SIGNING, CHRISTIAN Klien, above, joined the team officially for the first time at Phillip Island, taking part in Friday practice's enduro co-driver sessions. Klien quickly adapted to the car and enjoyed the fast and flowing Grand Prix circuit.

SKYCITY TRIPLE CROWN

DARWIN'S HIDDEN VALLEY RACEWAY celebrated 15 years of V8 Supercars in 2012 and Russell Ingall arrived at the popular Northern Territory circuit hoping for a repeat of the very first event, which he won. One of just three drivers to have competed at all 14 previous Darwin events, Ingall ran competitively during Saturday's first race, having qualified 14th and making ground early, but a mid-race mechanical black flag, combined with an engine issue ended any chance the six-time Darwin race winner had of scoring a good result – Ingall ultimately finishing 23rd. Officials handed out the black flag for a leaking fue

dry break system – which had fuel spraying out the filler after the compulsory stop – required an extra stop for the issue to be rectified. Sunday's race, the 13th of the 2012 season, proved to be ‘'unlucky 13'’ for Ingall and the Supercheap Auto team with the #66 SCAR Commodore not even completing one lap after receiving significant frontend damage in a first lap incident. While Ingall returned to the pits, the damage to the left front suspension was too severe to repair for him to return to the track.

townsville 400 TOWNSVILLE’S SUCROGEN 400 PROVED to be bittersweet for Russell Ingall and the Supercheap Auto team – a solid 11th one day, a disappointing DNF the next. Ingall and the SCAR crew just missed a top 10 in the event’s first leg, a bold race strategy not quite realising the desired result in a tight and exciting race. Ingall was just one of five to start on soft tyres with the plan to run hards longer mid-race but after pitting on L21 the team pitted him again 12 laps later and switched back to softs (used fronts, new rears) and rolled the dice.… It looked like it might play out with the front-runners pitting under Safety Car on L39. That left 33 laps to the finish and the question of their fuel consumption also came into play. Ingall moved to the lead on L44 and stayed in front until pitting for the final time on L57 – the SCAR Commodore on fresh

page 28

rears and with enough fuel to race home. The hope was that those ahead wouldn’t be able to race to the finish without drastically conserving fuel and looking after their tyres. While catching the frontrunners, the gap proved to be too much and the cards did not quite play his and the team’s way, Ingall and the #66 SCAR Commodore 11th by race’s end. The final day in the tropics ended disappointingly, the #66 SCAR Commodore on the wrong end of a first lap incident. The on-board data showed Ingall had braked to avoid cars tangling ahead, but he then received a serious hit from behind, damaging both the front and rear of his car. After pitting for repairs, Ingall returned to the track but was out of the race by L7 with damage to the engine cooling system threatening to destroy the engine.


COATES HIRE IPSWICH 300 THE COATES HIRE IPSWICH 300 was an important event for Russell Ingall and Supercheap Auto Racing. Not only did it mark the halfway point of the season, it was also Ingall’s home race and he was also equaling the great Peter Brock for third on the ATCC/V8SC all-time most starts list – and he didn’t let the occasion go unnoticed with his best results of the season and a new race lap record to boot! After topping Friday’s practice

page 30

sessions, Ingall started Saturday’s race from eighth and had a trouble free run throughout the shorter 45-lap race to come home fifth. Sunday’s race saw the #66 SCAR Commodore start fifth and finish sixth, Ingall setting a new race lap record at 1m 10.0874s – the top three finishing order in both races remaining the same with Holden’s Craig Lowndes winning from Mark Winterbottom, series leader Jamie Whincup third.

“This weekend could not hav any better for us and it’s what t Supercheap Auto team deserve the horrendous run of bad luck had recently. We didn’t get on t podium but it feels just as good “Ipswich was a good weekend pace, the right calls with pit stra and the team was awesome. “The hard tyre pace of my Su Auto Commodore was good and enough outright speed on the s

When it’s how I like it we’re up there. “We’re in a good position, earlier in the year our hard tyre pace wasn’t good but it is now. And when you think about us having the enduros coming up – all hard tyre races – then we’re not looking too bad.”

THE ENFORCER'S PRIDE and JOY, daughters Sasha, 10, and Jaz, 8, came to watch their dad race at Ipswich, cheering him on to his best result of the season.
