Murph's rebirth

 

Supercheap Auto Racing hopes the return of Cameron McConville's original car will help turn its season around.

Supercheap Auto Racing hopes the return of Cameron McConville's original car will help turn its season around.

The car has been fully rebuilt at the teams Dandennong workshop after McConville's monster shunt at the Clipsal 500 in March.

It is hoped the Commodore will be a better proposition than Greg Murphy's current machine, which was also heavily damaged at Adelaide. It is believed that Murphy's troublesome car - which required major repairs both front and rear after the shunt - is at the root of the teams struggles this year.

McConville is currently 13th in the championship while Murphy is a disappointing 15th. The pair will share the newly repaired car at Sandown and Bathurst with Murphy taking it over for the remainder of the season.

According to the team the car is effectively all-new after its repair job, which took six months.
