Cheese [VASC17R3R4] Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint, Symmons Plains: 7-9 Apr

The Grand Prix is run & won..

Great speed from DJRTP, so-so at 888 (for once), prodrive up & down like a see saw...

Not too sure what to make of any of it..

The pundits reckon there is a 2 way fight for the championship, 4 drivers..

Except it has rarely worked that way..

Who will win?

#33?

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
chaz is looking good also, best start he has ever had.

But DJRTP have good straight line speed and at a course that is basiclly two straights reckon they will do well

I wouldn't consider writing off T888 yet. DJR Penske are definitely pretty close though, and Mostert is right behind them. I'd say that will most likely be the big battle at Symmons. Courtney seems to be the next most competitive after them.

As for the Dunlop Series, I'd have to say Dumbrell is a clear favourite for me considering he is maybe the most experienced driver in the field as far as Symmons Plains goes and was basically the fastest runner at Adelaide.

DJRTP super fast at the GP - RBHRT looked spotty.

Interesting that both had tyre troubles, although Whincup's might have just been judged as unlucky, rather than through set up.

Interesting this year at this time and I would say that form at the AGP won't necessarily translate into form at Symmons.

DJRTP seem to have horsepower but 888 will be stronger as the year goes on.

PRA probably lack a bit of horsepower but seem to have got onto a good set up for the 55 car.

The other 3 PRA cars were up and down a bit at the AGP especially Waters who couldn't match his Adelaide efforts. Expect frosty to bounce back soon though.

Outside these 3 Teams BJR will be strong especially if Mr Percat has a bit of luck for a change.

Can't go past djrtp, their exit drive and aero setup down the straights means they're likely to be untouchable there.

Depends, after Adelaide and the GP I am left wondering whether their cars are just super slippery and whether they might hurt tyres in Tassie, or might be vulnerable under braking.

They did certainly look vulnerable at times under braking in Adelaide.

Another thing to consider is Fabs exceptional record at the GP - he may not bring the same form to Symmons Plains.

So in 2015 Winterbottom won at Albert Park, in 2016 SVG won and in 2017 Fabs won.
As they each went on to be champion, statistically it's Fabian to celebrate.

That's genuinely a really cool fact thanks for posting that hopefully that comes to fruition

They’ve got every bit of info about Triple Eight, ever’

just thought i would mention this stat from the above article

Quote:
Symmons Plains has traditionally been one of Triple Eight’s most dominant circuits. Including customer team Tekno Autosports, its Holdens are undefeated at the Tasmanian venue since 2013.
Possibly also a benefit from being at the front of the pits on a short track
