29 September 2013

Season 3 of Shannons Supercar Showdown - Motorsports own reality TV Show http// In this episode of Shannons Supercar Showdown the Team Captains surprise their rookies with two back to back points' challenges. The first test is a Showdown first; a race in a 125 horse power Formula Ford around Calder Park Raceway. Each driver will race against the clock to complete two laps of the course. The fastest time will win all important championship points. Will Davison is joined by Guest Captain Dave Reynolds, a former Australian Formula Ford Champion. The two captains are expecting big things from all the rookies but especially from seventeen year old Chelsea; she holds the Phillip Island lap record in the Victorian Formula Ford Championship. Can she beat the boys or will the British Formula Ford Superstar Dan take home top honours? There's also plenty of drama off the track as one driver is disqualified and accuses his team mates of damaging the Formula Ford gear box. Are the claims warranted or does this rookie just need an attitude adjustment. In the second challenge, Mark 'Frosty' Winterbottom returns to lead his troops in an all important Hot Lap. This time it's all about speed. But the rookies find out they're going to be under extra pressure. The boss of Ford Performance Racing Tim Edwards will be at the track watching their performances. One bad run could be the end of their dream to drive a V8 Supercar. There's frustration as some of the drivers struggle to find the right gear. But everyone is waiting to see whether the James, the Kamikaze Kid, has learnt his lesson and toned down his aggression. Stay tuned to find out.
