2011 V8 Supercar pitlane garage order set
The 2011 V8 Supercar pitlane garage order has officially been set.
Team garages have again be allocated according to the final 2010 Teams’ Championship finishing order – with adjustments made for those running either less or more than two cars.
After wrapping up the 2010 Teams’ Championship at the penultimate event at Sandown, TeamVodafone will take the coveted first and second pit bays (located at the exit of pitlane).
Jim Beam Racing will be situated alongside, as they will no longer be grouped with Jonathon Webb’s Tekno Autosports entry (CLICK HERE for previous story).

Fujitsu Racing assumes pit bays five and six, having beaten Ford Performance Racing to third in the 2010 pointscore.
With Jack Daniel’s pair Rick and Todd Kelly needing to be grouped with the Rock Energy and Stratco backed Kelly Racing entries, the third cars from Ford Performance Racing and Stone Brothers Racing will again share a pit boom.
Webb’s Tekno Autosports and Dean Fiore’s Triple F Racing will also share a boom, having joined their respective 2010 Teams’ Championship points in order to take pit bays 15 and 16.
The sport’s other two single-car teams, Tony D’Alberto Racing and Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport, take the next two positions.
Unlike in 2010, Walkinshaw Racing’s Bundaberg team will be pitted alongside its sister Toll Holden Racing Team entries, with Fabian Coulthard set to share a pit boom with Karl Reindler’s Fair Dinkum Sheds Commodore.
The #14 and #8 Brad Jones Racing entries occupy the final two garages.
