WILSON AND BARGWANNA IN THE THICK OF TIGHT PRACTICE IN QUEENSLAND

Max Wilson and Jason Bargwanna were right in the thick of an incredibly tight practice session for Round 7 of the V8 Supercar Championship Series at Queensland Raceway in Ipswich, Queensland today.

Wilson and Bargwanna were both within a second of the fastest time in today's session on a day when the top 27 cars were all within one second of the fastest time of the day around the 3.12-kilometre circuit.

Wilson finished the 135-minute session in 18th position in the #8 WOW Racing Falcon, while Bargwanna was 24th quickest in the #10 WPS Racing Falcon.

As an indication of the current competition in the V8 Supercar paddock, a mere three tenths of a second separated Wilson from eighth place.

WPS/WOW Racing will continue to work hard at getting the most out of the team's machines ahead of tomorrow's qualifying session and opening race.

Mark Winterbottom was fastest in today's practice session ahead of Garth Tander and Todd Kelly.

WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY --

Max Wilson -- #8 WOW Racing Falcon

"It's certainly tight out there in terms of times," said Wilson.

"We had a pretty good car early on in the session and managed to improve it in the first half of practice to be 10th fastest for quite a while there.

"In the second half of practice we managed to get the car a bit better but we probably didn't improve as much as others.

"I'm confident that there is still more time to be found in the car. We will put our heads together tonight and work hard at improving things for tomorrow."

Jason Bargwanna -- #10 WPS Racing Falcon

"We obviously don't like being this far down the order but tomorrow is another day and we made some progress throughout the session," said Bargwanna.

"The priority of practice is to prepare for qualifying and the races and work at achieving a set-up for the weekend. We've just got to concentrate on our own thing and get the job done.

"It's early days so I'm sure we can get some more speed out of the WPS car for tomorrow."

Craig Gore -- Team Owner

"The times were tight today and we are not where we would like to be, but it's early days," said Gore.

"We will all work hard at getting more speed out of the cars because it is the weekend that counts.

"We just weren't good enough today but we got a lot achieved on the cars and I'm confident we will be right back up where we should be tomorrow."
