MCNALLY SET FOR TOP END BATTLE IN V8 UTES

Rhys McNally hits Darwin's Hidden Valley Raceway this weekend for round 3 of the V8 Utes Series after an impressive start to the season for the category rookie.

Having never raced at the top end circuit before, Rhys is keen to hit the track tomorrow for his first drive on the track that boasts a 1.1km straight.

"We did a track walk today and the circuit looks good," Rhys said.

"After Winton I am eager to get out there and race, especially in a warmer climate."

Rhys will benefit from some braking and front suspension upgrades to the ute this weekend to help improve the turn-in of the car under heavy braking.

"We have put some upgrades springs in the front and have installed a modified VY brake booster whch will give me better control going into the corner," he said.

Rhys had some promotional duties today with a poster autograph session at the famous Darwin markets along with a slot on local radio.

"It's all about promoting the category and our sponsors who have helped us get here."

Rhys will be on the track for two practice sessions tomorrow (Friday), qualifying and race 1 on Saturday with two races on Sunday.
