Three contestants remaining, one week left. This is it for the Shannons Supercar Showdown!

Image

Samantha Reid’s appearance was short lived as she was eliminated last week on the Shannons Supercar Showdown. Only three contestants remain, with the young gun still in the running to win this year’s competition! It’s Australia VS New Zealand and the battle is going to be fierce.

Image

The first elimination task is a simulated race. The contestants are starting to find their way around the Shannons / carsales.com.au V8 Supercar and beginning to feel confident behind the wheel of the 600 horsepower brute.

Image

The Kelly brothers will be expecting the three to be able to abide by pit rules, get the cars up to temp between pits and put down some quick lap times. All in all, it is a tester for what is to come at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. Will anyone misbehave or disobey the strict guidelines? There’s always one who forgets something…

Image

To help the contestants a little on this rather hard task, each was allowed a few laps riding shotgun with either of the Kelly brothers. This is a priceless experience, as watching the pros handle the V8 Supercar can only do good things for your own driving style – Car control, braking points and racing lines will all be explained during this drive.

Image

The pit stop part of the challenge is what will catch most contestants out. Specific stopping points, gear and speed limiters and the overall time taken will be considered by the Kelly brothers. Will anyone be disqualified due to failing to adhere to the set guidelines?

Image

Who will se the fastest pace – an Aussie or a Kiwi? Will their efforts be enough to put them on top of the leaderboard going into the final round of the Shannons Supercar Showdown?
