one five five should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
If Matty Brabs can't race at Indy, be great to see him on the grid at Barbagallo, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather in racing in touring cars in Australia.

Means Supercars can claim the first American to start a non-enduro ATCC/Supercars event since.....?

Pro Mazda is not production cars, it is open-wheel racing and the next step up from USF2000 in the Mazda Road to Indy ladder

Indy Lights is a fair bit higher than F4 on the licence points I would think, as F4 is very similiar to USF2000. Indy Lights is the equivalent of GP2 (now F2)

Quite possibly the most useless place to put the Plus Fitness logo; right where it's obscured by a curve in the body panel.

Cheers, thanks for the correction on Pro Mazda.

F4 is the top of the tree for open wheelers in Australia for points. I Pro mazda matched up F4 then it would be 12 points for that, easily enough points equivlent

I think trying to compare the US open wheel scene to that of Australia is a fairly meaningless exercise.

Smallest Friday crowds ive ever seen.
The mining boom has truly hit.
A few years ago going on a Friday was like a race day and so so busy but today was totally dead spectator wise and the Merch area was empty.

Few observation points from the day

Mobil HSV look like the poor sister with regards to Pit Facilities, Fit-out and merch area which was a small 20 ft container Merch store. Was sad to see based on previous years. Hopefully a new car supplier next might help.

Finally first time ive seen the stadium trucks live.............LOVE IT
Why would you make a new series of utes when these thing are available. Maybe its just me but I was blown away with the speed, the suspension, the racing and jumping. I loved it.

My thoughts only.
