Ford enjoying Hamilton V8 track

3:27 pm on 21 April 2012

It was all Ford in Friday's practice for the Hamilton 400 V8 Supercar round, with championship leader Will Davison setting the fastest lap time in the event's history.

Davison's Australian team-mates Mark Winterbottom and David Reynolds were second and third fastest in practice.

Davison says Hamilton wasn't one of the team's best tracks last year but says they're thriving on the quick conditions this time, and says their cars are driving themselves around.

The defending champion Shane van Gisbergen was the best of the New Zealanders in 22nd while Greg Murphy crashed out in practice and set the slowest lap time of the day.
