The second episode of the 2012 Crimsafe Endurance Countdown looks at the famous Dick Johnson Racing team’s chances ahead of the Sandown and Bathurst endurance races.

The four-car Falcon team is the longest-running V8 Supercars team in the field, but the 2012 season has been one that has yielded little in results. Steve Johnson, a regular top 10 title contender, sits a lowly 17th and is the best of the team’s four cars.

Can DJR turn it around for the biggest races of the V8 Supercars season?

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.

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’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.

What will ‘Tricky Dicky’s’ reaction be to’s rating on his own team?

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 and you could win the wheel! Stay tuned for more details.
