That's what I was thinking, Thompson has been impressive in the past I think.

I would have thought it too early in the young driver's development. Maybe next year. There are many stories about who might end up in #30... wouldnt be impossible for LDM's Mr Lindbom to take the seat

I don't understand how Bargwanna wasn't one of the FIRST drivers to be snapped up by a TOP LEVEL team?

This is crazy! He was a fulltimer last year, he's on the pace at Bathurst, a former winner, what's the problem? Have I missed something here?

I can't believe BJR didn't even give him a look in. That's his ex-team?

Did he burn bridges? I'm hardly a Bargs fan but surely this is a massive oversight, can someone shed some light?

I mean Bargs at LDM? About as much of a waste as Alex Davison at DJR when in my opinion, a safe reliable driver like Alex should've been co-driving with Whincup as opposed to Dumbrell.

Not Lindbom sadly. He can really drive...but won't get his chance this year.

I would have put Bargs one of the top 5 or so picks having had 13 seasons in the category full time. A season out of the category did him no harm in 2008 when he was comfortably quicker than Tony D'Alberto in the RNR car.

Not many memorable results in recent years and a fair few scrapes, but that comes with driving an underfunded car. He is certainly would have been a better bet than some of the underwhelming announcements by teams which consider themselves contenders. Unless he has priced himself out of the market?

He probably would be a good fit at WP, co-driving #66 and if Percat moves to this car, could reunite with Tander in 2013.

Some very strong combinations with at least a dozen genuine contenders IMO.

I see v8 supercars have released a new bathurst track map today re-naming Peter Brock Skyline to Dick Smith skyline

that will upset a few people in the 50th running of the race

I don't think its that big a deal, the naming rights of the corner is for the purposes of the race, the actual name of the corner will still be "Brock's Skyline"

Its like Griffins Bend, over the years it has been branded XL Bend, GTX Bend, Repco Bend etc.. but the actual name is still Griffins

Conrod Straight was branded "Subaru Straight" for a few years in the 90s, Forrest Elbow was "Tyrepower Turn", Hell Corner has been "Shell Helix Corner"

etc etc
