McConville in winning form for final V8 Supercar round.

November 26, 2002 - Cameron McConville could not be any better prepared for this weekend's final V8 Supercar Championship Series round at Melbourne's Sandown Raceway.

McConville, together with Holden V8 Supercar drivers Garth Tander, Steven Richards and Nathan Pretty, dominantly won last weekend's inaugural Bathurst 24 Hour driving a Holden factory entered Monaro.

The Lansvale Racing Team driver qualified the Monaro on the front row and drove two double stints during the epic 3,300 lap race, preparing him well for his final race of the 13 round 2002 V8 Supercar season at Sandown this weekend.

Cameron McConville - " It is always good to return to my home circuit, I basically grew up at Sandown as a driving instructor and I have always enjoyed racing there. We have had a very up and down season to date and I want to end the season on a major high as we have proven that we can compete with the best during the latter stages of the season. I know how focussed the team is and I am 110 per cent committed to making this our best round of the season."

Sydney's V8 Supercar Team is looking forward to this weekend's action, given the team's improvement in qualifying speed and race performances during the last three rounds. Reliability will be a key issue, particularly with the tough 300 kilometre mini-endurance race scheduled for Sunday, following a fast 150 kilometre sprint on Saturday.

The Lansvale Racing Team VX Commodore was racing comfortably within the top ten at New Zealand three weeks ago and time will tell if this can be repeated at the 3.1 kilometre Sandown circuit, located south east of the Melbourne CBD.

The team is also hoping that they wont be displaying their remarkable all night smash repairing skills as they were forced to last year at Sandown following a spectacular multiple rollover by McConville following a first corner accident.
