[iV8SC13R30,31] Armor All Gold Coast 600 - 25-27 Oct

Its Indy Time!!!

A new format, a 2 driver race with the same blokes that rocked up together at Sandown & Bathurst already.

This is a tight little track, with the banana straight, not so special for cars without good engine response out of tight turns...

Who might win the double bunger this weekend?

#1 and #888 have a mortgage on the top 10 somewhere... #8 and #14 should be back on top when they have figured out why Bathurst speed eluded them..

FPR are still enjoying their Bathurst win... so might be slightly distracted come Indy Time!

A roughie this weekend... #97?

Yep, agree with some of the above, but just like to highlight two things:

Its Indy Time!!! No its not INDY , after going there today, far from it, more like a haphazard shitfight, we have to get this done! at cheapast possible way. I wouldnt insult the history of the INDY Cars running here, this is V8 Supercars doing it on the cheap.

FPR are still enjoying their Bathurst win... so might be slightly distracted come Indy Time!
Not really, FPR have had some good times here, but again its not INDY just a cut (bloody big cuts/penny pinchin) version run by V8 Supercars. Where are the international visitors, the whole of the GC booked out. Sorry, just another V8 meeting.

but other than that , it will be interesting to see who realy wants the Pirtek Cup.

Without knowing the reasoning behind the Brabham/Thompson swap, it seems odd that Erebus are upsetthat SVG didn't want to race for them (for no apparant reason) and now they don't want Thompson (for no apparant reason).

Betty seemed quite pleased with him at Sandown...

Mr Thompson might've said some bad words about the car around Bathurst time.

It's an unusal turn of events, thats for sure.

Apparently some of the drivers are calling for the old longer track to be brought back. While I agree the longer track was more exciting and had more places to pass it was more of a pain in the backside traffic wise etc. I wouldn't mind it making a come back but I doubt it will happen I think the light rail track might now be in the way.

The spin from AdCafe now seems to be that Mr Thompson only ever had a 2 race deal with Erebus..

Shows the naivety of some of the drivers as to why the short track was installed.
