Rick Kelly fastest in practice


Toll HSV driver Rick Kelly is fastest part-way into the V8 Supercar practice session at Pukekohe. Jason Richards is back on track after a crash early in the session.

April 20, 2007, 3.45pm. The Jack Daniel’s racing team faces a heavy night’s work after Jack Perkins backed his Holden Commodore VZ into the concrete barrier at the top of the Pukekohe hill this afternoon.

Perkins, a Pukekohe rookie, crashed about 15 minutes into the second timed practice session for this weekend’s Australian V8 Supercar meeting.

In the earlier session, Tasman Motorsport’s Jason Richards put his car off the track at the hairpin.

At the time he went off-track, Richards was third fastest with a 56.8s lap, a sliver behind Mark Winterbottom.

Rick Kelly (pictured) was fastest at the time in the Toll HSV Commodore, with a 56.4s lap. Cars ran the first session on older tyres.

Twenty minutes in into session two, Kelly still leads the time sheets with 56.1s, ahead of James Courtney in a Falcon.

Jason Richards is ninth in the repaired Tasman Commodore.
