Stoner tests well with V8's

5:54 am on 12 December 2012

The former world motorcycle champion Casey Stoner has moved another step closer to a career in the Australian V8 Supercars, impressing during a test day in Queensland.

The two-time motorcycle world champion, who retired from that sport at the end of this year's MotoGP campaign, drove Jamie Whincup's Holden Commodore at the test day at the Queensland Raceway.

With Whincup's veteran teammate Craig Lowndes offering advice, Stoner did well during the hit-out.

Speculation continues to build the 27-year-old will race with the team in the minor-category Dunlop Series next year.
