McNally Kicks Off Season In Adelaide

Mark McNally had two positive practice sessions today in preparation for Round 1 of the 2007 Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series at Adelaide's Clipsal 500.

Mark finished 15th fastest in both sessions today, gaining valuable laps in his first V8 Supercar event at the tight street circuit.

Up until many drivers put new rubber on late in the sessions Mark was right up with the fastest times.

"We have a game-plan this weekend and we are sticking to it," Mark said.

"I am in the top 50% group for qualifying and I got there on old tyre which is good because I have two new sets for qualifying.

"It is difficult to make any judgments from practice positions because some drivers are using new rubber; I am happy with the times we did on the rubber we used."

"Qualifying tomorrow will be a different story when everyone is on new tyres."

Tomorrow's events include Qualifying at 12.30pm and Race 1 at 6.20pm.
