Neal didn't have him on the brakes. Was too fast in and missed the apex by a bus length!

Then let Neal sail off into the distance and then turn in later. Don't drive into the side of a car that's clearly about to have an off.

You could argue that Cook should have let Neal have the corner, held wide and let the Honda sail off into the distance. Easy to say that now, of course.

Got to say that watching Neal skate off the road was one my personal highlights of the weekend so far!

Edit: beaten to it. But, yes.

maybe Mr. Gow might as well just give the title to Sutton and we don't need to bother watching the rest , only Turks can beat him but only if the Subaru boost is cut


Sutton 312
Turkington 300
Shedden 257
Collard 256

Boost cut? The car is big slow on the straight. They are doing a brilliant job on the chassis so why hammer them
For doing a good job? Remember. BMW won the race....

I just want to say that the best thing about the sport that happened today is that the Scooby of Cole won.

I love the way it has been for the title leading Sutton, and the sport is a great more competitive than the previous season

I was happy to see the Merc of Morgan and the MG of Cook up the front of the field and the only thing I can say is that the drivers have a right to be angry at Cook. I am glad that he was punished for the punt on the Ford. I am also happy to see that the Chevy of Smiley is more competitive than usual.

I don't know why Collard thinks he can just move over on other people who are alongside him and he certainly seems to be looking out of the race for the title and the race is also getting a bit more harder for the Honda of Flash too.

Colin says that essentially they can't compete with Subarus even when they have ballast

and now Tim Harvey says BMW and Honda are down on boost..

To be fair to Subaru (as much as it pains me to say so) they are around the same speed as the BMWs in a straight line so the advantage they are getting is not down to them having a top speed advantage, only the Honda's seem to be worse off in straight-line speed.

Saying that however, the Subaru set fastest lap in race 2 with 66 kilos of ballast and the hard tyre, 1.2 seconds faster than the BMW and in race 3 even with full ballast it set fastest lap about a quarter of a second faster than anyone else which surely suggests that the speed is coming from how the car is handling in the corners so if anything is the Centre of gravity where the car is getting it's advantage?

I don't wish to be rude, but you do seem to suffer from selective hearing. Either that, or you just select those pieces of comments that are made which suit your current position.

In virtually the same breath that Harvey spoke about the boost on the Honda, he also said that at some circuits the Hondas are almost untouchable, and that possibly the reason that Sheddon had had a couple of bad weekends was that the circuits did not suit the current car, and consequently that he was possibly taking too many risks.

This is a championship of 30 races held over 10 weekends on different circuits - Brands Indy and GP circuits are different - and the driver and/or car that wins the championship will be the one that has done the best job overall.

It's not as if the same driver/car combo has won all 24 races that have been held so far, and nor has it been 24 podiums with only Subaru drivers on them.

Apart from the bumper car aspects of the racing, this is one of the best seasons for many a year in my humble opinion.

And now Subaru are doing a brilliant job and are already massively cut.

Sometimes, some teams do a better job than others. Right now, Sutton/BMR seem to be doing the best job in the field when it comes to consistency and maximising opportunities.
