STRONG TEST HAS MARSHALL CONFIDENT HEADING TO SANDOWN

A recent test at Winton Motor Raceway has IRWIN Racing's Marcus Marshall confident of a strong showing at the Midas 400 at Sandown International Raceway on June 7-9.

The IRWIN Racing team carried out detailed testing of the Ford Falcon V8 Supercar alongside teammate Jason Bright (Fujitsu Racing). The result was an improvement in performance and team chemistry between Marshall and his engineering and technical team headed by Greg Foletta.

"It was a really good day," said Marshall.

"I got well over 100 laps in the car and most importantly our work as a group was outstanding.

"With no race weekend pressure on us, we were really able to work through a solid program with the car. The result was a range of improvements across the board.

"Heading to Sandown I feel a lot more confident that we can hit the track running.

"Sandown is a track that I know extremely well and I'm sure that we can look forward to a really strong result."

Race Engineer Greg Foletta echoed Marshall's confidence after the test.

"The test was very productive," said Foletta.

"We are able to confirm that we are heading in the right direction with the car. That's really important as we can better understand what's required to get the most out of the car at race events.

"We have come a long way at the last two events. We are around that top-20 qualifying position and we are improving in the races.

"In terms of approaching Sandown, same place but a different event. That's quite exciting and we feel that it could work in our favour."
