The GPVWC Feeder series prepares for two high-octane races in Melbourne - but who will emerge as an early front-runner?
The GPVWC Supercup has treated us to some sublime racing over the years, and the field gathered for the 2018 season promises no less.

With some big names - both teams and drivers - having made the jump to Superleague, the crowns are up for grabs and the claimants many. But just how much did we learn from winter testing?

Some names will be up there or thereabout.

The Supercup only had two official testing sessions, but some names consistently popped up near the top. Stephane Rouault of Basilea, Yuri Kasdorp of YTF1, Roy Schroten of THU - they set the best times in pre-season and will hope to carry on the form once the lights go out in Melbourne.

Sandbagging is still a fine art.

We see you, lurking at the back of the timesheets in testing. Don't think we're fooled. You know who you are.

Reverse grids can still spring surprises.

2017 success was built on raw pace and consistency, but also on turning reverse grid starts from the middle of the pack into wins. Then again, Siebel's successes last year were quite extraordinary and on an average day, reverse grids can still bring up a surprise winner. Most importantly, it's a crucial moment for championship contenders to avoid losing points when being in the thick of battles.
