The 11th episode of the Crimsafe Endurance Countdown looks at Ford Performance Racing – only one of two teams to win a V8 Supercars race this year.

Ford’s factory team has enjoyed its best season in V8 Supercars to date, with Mark Winterbottom and Will Davison currently second and third in the title chance.

A string of seven-straight race wins at the start of the year, plus continued podium pace, has kept the team at the pointy end of the field.

Can that form continue for the endurance races?

The 2012 Crimsafe Endurance Countdown will run for 12 consecutive days, looking at each V8 Supercars organisation and their chances of victory in the two-driver V8 races – in particular, the famous Bathurst 1000.

There are also two special episodes, dissecting the return of endurance racing to Sandown, and this October’s 50th year celebrations at Mount Panorama.

See below for today’s episode, as well as the other episodes that have been published so far.

This year’s Crimsafe Endurance Countdown is hosted by Tim Hodges (Fox Sports producer and radio presenter), GRM endurance driver Jack Perkins and two-times Bathurst 1000 winner John Bowe, as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews by Speedcafe.com’s journalists Grant Rowley and Stefan Batholomaeus.

Australian motorsport legend Dick Johnson also chips in, presenting Speedcafe’s Crimsafe Ratings, giving each V8 organisation a score out of 10, rating their chances of winning Bathurst.

You will be able to use these ratings to go into the draw to win a new-specification 18 inch control wheel, signed by TeamVodafone’s Craig Lowndes.

All you will have to do is collect the 10 ratings presented by Johnson, send them to Speedcafe.com and you could win the wheel! Stay tuned for more details.
