Orrcon Steel Racing Pitstop – January 27, 2011Friday, January 27th, 2012
Next Monday 30th January Ford Performance Racing, Orrcon Steel #5 will create history when Frosty drives the first ever V8 Supercar on ice! The encounter with the ice is designed to help celebrate the launch of our all new 2012 livery where Frosty will be joined by Olympic gold medalist Steven Bradbury.
There will also be a major announcement made in conjunction with the night so stay tuned to your emails Tuesday morning to be the first to read the exciting news!
But for now, here is a little taste of Orrcon Steel’s V8 Supercar which Frosty will pilot in the 2012 Championship.
V8 SUPERCARS SEASON SET TO LAUNCH ON 11TH
All 28 V8 Supercars will launch the 2012 International V8 Supercar Championship at Sandown Raceway next month on Saturday February 11th.
The launch runs in conjunction with a full test day, compulsory to all teams, and will serve as a crucial shakedown for both FPR cars ahead of the opening round of the Championship – Clipsal 500 – from March 1-4.
The event is FREE to the public with plenty of activities for all ages on the day, so if you’re in Melbourne, head on down and say hi to the Orrcon Steel Racing team.
WALKING AROUND ON A BROKEN LEG
As most of your are aware Frosty is recovering from a broken tibia sustained over the Christmas break while water skiing.
His recovery is going very well and it looks like he will be fit for the test day on the 11th of February. However a decision on this will be made by Frosty’s specialist the day before the test.
