Greg Murphy Racing is testing six drivers today

Up to a dozen drivers will share just three V8 Supercars Development Series entries during the final Victorian V8 Supercars test of 2011 at Winton today.

Greg Murphy Racing, Sonic Motor Racing Services and Matthew White Motorsport have joined Championship teams Ford Performance Racing, Garry Rogers Motorsport and Walkinshaw Racing at the test day.

GMR has brought the #51 Commodore that Kiwi Daniel Jilesen raced in the 2011 Fujitsu Series, with six drivers set to cut laps.

The line-up consists of Formula Ford drivers Elliot Barbour, Tom Williamson and Scott Andrews, Kumho V8 Touring Car Series competitor Matt Hansen and Historic Touring Car youngster Fraser Ross, while Fujitsu Series regular Marcus Zukanovic will be helping the rookie drivers throughout the day.

At Sonic Motor Racing Services, George Miedecke will complete most of the running in the Rodney Jane-owned Triple Eight BF chassis campaigned this season by Jack Perkins.

Sonic Formula Ford drivers Nick Foster and Garry Jacobson are also expected to enjoy seat time in the afternoon.

Matthew White Motorsport meanwhile is running the ex-Ford Performance Racing chassis raced this year by Tim Blanchard, with Fujitsu Series regulars Tony Bates, Ash Walsh and Tom Williamson on the driving roster.
