Mad Dog" ready to work Wakefield in the shadow of the Big Merino
Written on the 1 May 2008 by Grant DenyerGrant Denyer heads back to the prime wool growing area of Goulburn this weekend for Round 2 of the Fujitsu V8 Supercar series. Currently sitting in 4th place in the championship, “Mad Dog” will saddle up in the Summit Fleet Leasing Ford for Matthew White Racing, driving the same car he raced at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide.
With a solid start to the series and a strong showing in Adelaide, Grant is keen to continue the points chase and is hoping for another strong result.
“Wakefield was a shocker last year for me, one of my worst rounds ever so hopefully the curse of the black jellybean has been buried and I can continue to rack up the points.” he said. ‘Matt’s car was strong at Wakefield last year finishing on the podium so we should be in with a good top 5 result.”
"Mad Dog" in full race trim and ready to attack!Grant started racing karts at Goulburn in the 90’s, and has raced at Wakefield for many years in Utes and the V8 Supercar series. The family farm is only 3 hours from the town so there will be plenty of family pressure to perform.
“I will also be racing in the Mini Challenge over the weekend, so I won’t be short on track time, just coming to grips with the totally different dynamics of the two very different race cars.”
He is currently third on points in the Mini Challenge and will have a total of 6 races of the weekend between the 2 categories.
Practise will commence Friday with qualifying Saturday and 3 races Sunday.
