That was my initial understanding as well. But then they go on about rest times, which in my understanding is the inverse of the allowable laps completed...

How a team uses it's B driver to achieve those 54 laps should be up to them. If a team wants to roll the dice, and do 2x driver changes, good luck to them.

I think at the end of the day, the rules are made 1) to be complicated enough to trip a team up for the sake of a controversy, and 2) have all the B drivers on track at the same time, bumping into eachother.

What if the race is interrupted mid-race like Bathurst a few years ago? Would that make a difference?

Does James Moffatt have any personality?

On Sundays telecast in an interview he seemed as lively as a dead fish.

Then again it took his dad 30 years after his career to be comfortable in front of the media.

James has obviously been to the Frosty school of media...

I've worked with him, he has plenty of it off camera, more than most drivers actually who often do the opposite and liven up for the TV but are quite monotone off it.
