Hi Mark,

 

I saw the ‘First and Worst’ column in MyCareer.com.au and 
thought you might be interested in a V8 theme for the October 9/10 edition given 
that this is the Bathurst 1000 weekend.

 

I’ve attached some words direct from Alex Davison. Alex 
drives for IRWIN Racing and is a contender for the Bathurst 
podium.

Mark Fogarty The remaining dominoes are starting to fall for V8 Supercar drivers, with the confirmed return of Alex Davison leaving just four unfilled places for next year.
