The V8 Supercars are back on-track - at the home track for some teams on the grid, in fact.
While the Queensland-based teams talk down the possibility of a home-ground advantage, recent numbers show they are tough to topple at 'the paperclip', having won 10 of the last 12 races from 2009 onwards.Red Bull Racing Australia has claimed seven of those wins, and Dick Johnson Racing the other three.
The Championship race is an interesting one for Red Bull. Craig Lowndes has fallen down the order while Jamie Whincup has pounced, shifting up to second, all after the last event in Townsville.
Meanwhile Mark Winterbottom continues to lead, and with strong performances on the Dunlop soft tyre, having this weekend's race meeting play out all on the soft compound can't hurt.
He and Whincup have both recorded two wins at Queensland Raceway -so it's FPR versus Triple Eight, Ford versus Holden, Queensland versus Melbourne, long-time rivals challenging for the Championship lead.
It's two 100km races and one 200km, on the Dunlop soft tyre at the Coates Hire Ipswich 400. And with the enduros just around the corner, all competitors will be looking to maximise their points haul before the pressure point of the season.
