Home team hungry for success.

July 22, 2002 - Sydney's Lansvale Racing V8 Supercar Team is looking forward to the seventh round of the Australian V8 Supercar Championship Series this weekend at their nominated test circuit, Oran Park Raceway.

Twenty-eight year old team driver Cameron McConville is totally committed to gaining a strong result at this important home race.

"I think too many people overlook us when it comes to predicting who will make the top places - hopefully the Lansvale Racing Team can stand up and be counted this weekend as a genuine contender," He said.

The undulating 2.7 kilometre Oran Park circuit is where the team has developed their in house built Holden VX Commodore V8 Supercars. Aside from the home circuit advantage, LRT are also riding the wave of a return to top ten competitiveness with McConville securing the team's fourth top ten and second top five race result of the season in Perth one month ago.

"Even though Oran Park is our home circuit and we were competitive there last year, you can never be over confident given the competitiveness of the category this season. Having said this, I'm very hungry for a top ten round result or better this weekend," McConville added.

LRT has been working on their qualifying set -ups during recent test sessions to improve their performances for the remainder of the season - an area which has been exposed as one of the Sydney based V8 Supercar team's weaker points. In terms of race pace, McConville has had no problem matching the pace set by the best in the series.

A large crowd is expected at Narellan's Oran Park Raceway for the final Sydney V8 Supercar appearance of the season. The Lansvale Racing Team is looking forward to putting on their best show yet as the harbour city's sole representative in the competitive Australian V8 Supercar Championship Series.
