Simon Wills is keen to perform well at Melbourne's Albert Park circuit in the upcoming V8 Supercar event, March 1-3 next.

Although Simon has not raced on this circuit previously, he considers the experience something special.

"This will be my debut at this track and I'm really excited about performing at such an event", he said.

"I have been really looking forward to this day, it's such an expansive circuit, I imagine the secret to success here is to get the Cat Falcon out of the corners as quickly as possible and onto the straights, becoming the key to a quick lap around Albert Park".

With a new brand of tyre coming into the equation, it will be interesting to see which teams get it right in the lead-up to the championship series", he said.

It promises to be a great year in the V8 Supercar Series for the Cat Falcon and I can't wait for the flag to drop.

"The Team at Briggs Motorsport have spent an incredible amount of time preparing the car, making improvements here and there, whilst ensuring it will be one of tghe best presented V8 Supercars to take the grid for the 2002 season", he said.

With testing taking place shortly, Simon is keen to get back behind the wheel in the run-up to this season's series.

Simon won the Konica Series in a Commodore last year, but has made the transition across to the Falcon very well, participating at the Queensland 500 (where he still holds the lap record whilst racing Formula Holden.

Simon also holds the lap record at Mt Panorama, and also recorded some excellent times in his first solo outing in the Cat Falcon at the NZ V8
