Reed To Test A V8 Supercar - For Real

Former world and American supercross champion Chad Reed will take on a different challenge on August 13 when he takes part in an official test with leading V8 Supercar operation Team Vodafone.
The session will take place at Queensland Raceway, near Ipswich, where Team Vodafone's Jamie Whincup will be on hand to personally instruct Reed.

"I am extremely grateful to... Team Vodafone for giving me the opportunity to participate in a fully sanctioned driver evaluation day," said Reed. "This is sure to be the highlight of my year."
But it won't be all one way traffic. Whincup, like many of his fellow V8 Supercar drivers, is a keen dirtbike rider, and he will receive some instruction from Chad as a trade-off for his guidance at Queensland Raceway.

Reed's appetite for four wheels was whet in 2006 when he completed a series of laps in a Paul Morris Motorsport machine on the Gold Coast.

Queensland Raceway, while a relatively basic layout, is considered by drivers to be a very technical track, which requires confident braking into two very fast corners and good car control over a number of bumpy areas.
