Veggie And Then... There Were 5... (WITH POLL)

One race meeting left in the Virgin Australia Supercar Championship Series.

A trip to Newcastle, a place none of the teams has seen, tested on, had any notes for, had an old hand in the driverís seat able to call corners from memory..

300 points still to play for..

And we have 5 mathematical contenders for the Driverís Championship..



Whoís going to be the 2017 VASC Driverís Champion?

I'd be surprised if it's neither Whincup nor McLaughlan.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Reckon this will be split on party lines.

If whincup finishes both races in last postion, he still beats SVG and Chaz
If whincup finishes 2nd in each race he is the champion.

Very close, but 2 horse race i reckon unless the top 2 trip over majorly

Wouldn't be surprised next year if Whincup wins the championship that the team gives Van Gisbergen the #88 while Whincup runs #1

I imagine #88 might end up on the V6TT wildcard... if Mr Whincup wins the title...

What becomes of the #1 if Scotty wins the championship?

Dick always retained the #17 back in his time, but Bowe swapped the #18 for #1 in 1996.

I think the wildcard would run #80 as per when Triple Eight ran their DVS car for Scott Pye a few years ago.

Coulthard still thinking title despite deficit

888 I can understand, but does 88 hold significance for RBHRT?

SVG chose to run 97 instead of 1 this year, so I doubt he would be keen on changing to 88...97 obviously has fair meaning for him being his father's number and the number he used in junior categories.

Hope JW wins (hope a Holden wins) but voted Scotty as I reckon he will take it.

Will be interesting to see what happens if there is a SC and 97 is ahead of 88 (possible) and/or 12 is ahead of 17 (less likely). Will they give up pit priority to avoid stacking their championship contender?

Pretty confident triple 8 have given up priority before in the championship hunt

But as we saw ont he weekend, It may hinder more than help

It is still bloody cool to have 5 contenders with 2 races to go.
There might be a couple less come Saturday night.

definitely is cool to have 5 still available. Wonder when the last time was?

We could be down to just the one on saturday night, or we could still have 5 (or any combination in between)

Probably the ideal path for Sunday for all fans, is Scott beats Jamie by enough on Saturday that either driver has to win on Sunday to guarantee the title.

99% going , deciding in next 24 hours
