JLB puts the Datsun on pole at PI. Another first for the catagory.

Regular front-runners, Dumbrell and Hazelwood, are starting from the third row.

Oh dear, another tire just went, this time it was Jacobson who had a right rear go into turn 1 at full speed and he spun through the sand trap, luckily pulling up before hitting anything. Edwards claims that he's taken a "very conservative approach to the set-up" on Garry's car, so I wonder what's going on there.

Yet another Dunlop tyre fails. Is there a fault or something for the tyres in the last two years. I don't recall seeing this many fails from 2015 backwards. Both main game and Dunlop have seen some huge failures last year and this year. Makes Dunlop look questionable when the unloaded side is failing at turn 1. A point was the new tyres could expand, still doesn't explain why the old tyres are letting go on the unloaded at one. We saw it with Dumbrell last year too

Is this a Harry Hogge/Cole Trickle moment? A challenged tuning vocabulary?
Or just complaining about the car.
Isn't it the same noise as last year complaining about a lack of testing?

Jack Le Brocq just had a massive right-rear failure on the race leading Altima.

The right-rear door has almost been completely ripped off the car.

In regards to Ms Gracie, my understanding is that there are a few things at play.

Largely around the driver, the engineering nouse, and the budget.

You can usually put on a good show, when 2 of those 3 elements are sorted, but not when 2 or 3 are lacking.

What's happened to her this season? She's doing worse off than last season even though she's in a better car

Mr Perkins isn't running as shinily as you might have expected either

The ingredients for success are not there.

Simple as that.
