DJR has landed in Austin Texas full of confidence for a good showing at the inaugural Austin 400. The two Wilson Security FG Falcons together with the other 26 V8 Supercars are bedded down in the Pit Lane waiting to turn the first laps of the spectacular Circuit of the Americas track on Friday USA time.
The performance of the two Wilson Security / DJR FG Falcons continued to improve today with Chaz Mostert grabbing the team's first Top 10 finish in the 2013 V8 Supercars Championship in Perth. Two qualifying sessions determined the grids for races 11 & 12 and Mostert continued his superb debut form with 11th in both sessions. Team mate Tim Blanchard put in his best time for the weekend in the second session but still could bring the sister car further up the grid.
The Wilson Security / DJR team has banked a Top 15 result in the opening 60 / 60 sprint format at Perth's Barbagallo Raceway today. V8 Supercars main game debutant Chaz Mostert fought hard to bring the Wilson Security Falcon home in a fine 15th place. Earlier in the day, Mostert had posted DJR's best qualifying performance of 2013 with a Top 10 berth. Team mate Tim Blanchard was not quite as fortunate as a red flag caught the #17 crew out getting the best of the Dunlop Sprint tyre.
One of Australian Motor Sports longest and most successful partnerships will be once again be to the fore next weekend in Perth when Dick Johnson Racing & Shell launch a new livery on the #17 Wilson Security Falcon. DJR have enjoyed a relationship with the famous Shell brand for over 30 years and will again be part of a marketing program at a number of rounds of the 2013 V8 Supercars Championship.
