PERKINS DODO COMMODORE HAS RUNS ON THE BOARD AT SYMMONS

Dodo Racing Team's Jack Perkins has a car with proven Symmons Plains pace at his disposal for the fourth event of the 2009 V8 Supercar Championship Series in Tasmania this weekend.

Perkins enters the Falken Tasmania Challenge aboard the #11 Dodo Commodore, which is the same car (Chassis #PE047) that Todd Kelly used to win the Saturday race at the 2.4 kilometre circuit last season.

Perkins also has experience at the Symmons Plains circuit just outside of Launceston, driving as Kelly's team-mate at Jack Daniel's Racing at the same event last season.

After some bad luck in early events, the second-generation driver is looking to earn a solid collection of championship points this weekend to push himself up the order in the 2009 points standings.

WHAT JACK HAD TO SAY ...

Jack Perkins - #11 Dodo Holden Commodore

"The Dodo Commodore is actually the car that Todd Kelly used to win here in Tassie last year," said Perkins.

"Our crew is looking for a good result here at Symmons Plains. I've raced here before and enjoy the circuit so I think we can show some good car speed here this weekend.

"The aim is to be consistent and to qualify well around here really helps your weekend.

"I'd like to get a lot of points out of this weekend so we can really start building some momentum for our season."
