IRWIN Racing's V8 star Lee Holdsworth ready for Mercedes AMG on the streets of Adelaide.
The new era of V8 Supercars gets underway this weekend with the Clipsal 500 on the streets of Adelaide.
It will include the debut of AMG Mercedes-Benz, but IRWIN Racing's Lee Holdsworth has modest expectations for what will be a tough weekend of racing. In terms of making the Clipsal 500 with a brand new platform, the team at IRWIN Racing has in some respects already won its first race.
This weekend driver Lee Holdsworth will be part of a three-car Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 effort from Erebus Motorsport. Even for an established driver it is a step into the unknown. Holdsworth commented: "Race engineer Brad Wischusen has been working around the clock in the lead-up to Adelaide. Although the team has only scratched the surface of the new car's potential - he says race miles will be critical at the Clipsal 500."
