On The Limit features Australian V8 Supercars on 12 May.

The mighty Australian V8 brigade will again come under the On The Limit spotlight, presented by O'Hagan's, on SABC 3 Topsport on May 12.

The Australian V8 Supercar Championship provides for one of the most spectacular motorsport series in the world, with blood and thunder racing with Ford and Holden the main protagonists. On The Limit will take a look at round three of the series at Eastern Creek at 13h00 with repeat broadcasts at 16h00 on May 13 on A2A and May 14 at 22h50 on SABC 3.

The Eastern Creek round proved to be a benefit for Holden Commodore driver Mark Skaife. The event was run over a 20 minute race on April 27 and two 150 kilometre heats on April 28 -- with Skaife winning all three races.

Skaife's golden weekend lifted him well clear of the rest of the challengers in the championships standings. The Holden driver now has 820 points -- exactly double those of nearest challenger Greg Murphy.

Skaife won the 20 minute race ahead of Marcos Ambrose in a Ford Falcon, and the following day took the opening 150 kilometre race ahead of Ambrose and Craig Lowndes in another Ford Falcon. Skaife completed his hat-trick in race three by winning from Lowndes and Garth Tander, in a Holden, who moved into third place in the championship just two points behind Murphy.
