Hopefully the qualifying system will mix up the grids a bit. Should favour 888 however as being at the front of the pit lane they will have the possibility to put in an extra lap in the 10 minute Q sessions.

If the other drivers, are willing to bake 10 meter's latter, turn into a corner , or exit a corner in a different way, then maybe we will see a different qualifying result.

Have faith in your car, your ability.

We all hear there is only a pooth teenth of a second between the cars ,
Just follow the Gis's lead a hang it out there
Being first out is not always a guarantee of pole.

Last out may just have the clear track to do it , if you use what the good lord gave you at birth.

It's been a while since someone has plonked it on pole, at the conclusion of their first flying lap.

SvG might be good, but he ain't that good.

So... we might look to the Grand Prix to see a slightly revised livery for the 888 crowd... the red Holden branding on the rear doors & quarters has been seen in their shed as white Holden branding.

Images are on their FB (will link to photobucket when its back from maintenance..)

The livery didn't play well on TV, so increasing the contrast will help I think.

Would Red Bull necessarily like the bold white "Holden" signage on the side of the car? Kind of overpowers the Red Bull writing?

They would have to have approved it.

In any case, the Holden signage looks a hell of a lot better now to me. I thought it didn't stand out very well at all before, the red was just too dark to work with that shade of blue.

See the annual push for the AGP supports to become a championship round is on again. With Bernie having left the F1 building, a new owner to try and persuade. http://www.speedcafe.com/2017/03/18/...ionship-round/

Probably the usual threats to not renew, yet given it is probably the biggest motorsport event in Oz from a corporate hospitality standpoint, V8SC will take what they are given.

Being 10 minute sessions means most drivers will only get one flying lap!

Flying lap takes just under 2 minutes around there in a VASC car. Let's say that an out lap from the pit lane amounts to 3 minutes, that still leaves enough time in the session for 4 flying laps IF each car stays out and IF there are no red flags etc.

In the 30 minute sessions last year, most cars did 9-10 laps.

I'm hearing you on the shortness of the sessions, 10 minutes is not much at all but seems like a stretch to suggest only 1 flying lap as the likely outcome.
