Under the sunlight in Adelaide Fredrik Lestrup prepares himself for his first race weekend in the Dunlop V8 Supercars Series. The championship has attracted a 30 + car strong field for the opener and Fredrik looks forward to the premiere in the # 44 Pacific Hoists Rsport Race Engineering Holden V8.
“I am eager to go now,” he says. “Today a big racing dream of mine comes true and I couldn’t be more excited. Preparations are done and we feel ready.”

The  Adelaide street circuit attracts a huge crowd for the season opener Clipsal 500 and the track itself is full of challenges, especially with temperatures up to 30 degrees celsius during the race. Fredrik acknowledged the challenge ahead during the track walk with his engineer.
“This is my first time on a street circuit to begin with and to do it here in a V8 Supercar is a big challenge for sure. The track looks very challenging and there are quite a few interesting parts and it’s no doubt the biggest challenge I’ve met so far. I’m going into this with very realistic expectations. First and foremost I want to reach the finish line in both races and build on the experience. The competition is very high here so to come away with points and a mid pack position would be cause for celebration.”
