Certainly Lowndes would be a coveted co-driver. Experience counts for so much at Bathurst.

With the current rules he could sneak in some more wins even after hanging up the helmet full time.

"the man hired by Holden to take over from Brock is just three wins away from equaling his mentor’s record."

One of your best James... just 3x Bathurst wins out of the next 7 starts.
No biggie.

Brock had 6 win in 7 starts, so Lowndes has to be a chance

Despite Triple 8 showing not a lot of pace at Bathurst, the 88 and 97 were fast at different stages over the weekend, including SVG threatening for a win late, but Lowndes was nowhere all weekend, the first time I reckon I've ever seen him down so low and not be able to grab it by the scruff of the neck an drag upwards. Maybe his time is getting close to up? Or is that too harsh?

Didn't the 888 car have some mysterious problem which is yet to be revealed?

What was apparent though was Lowndes' comparison to Brock didn't extend to getting TV coverage even while circulating in a lowly position.

We've seen it happen time and time again, Murf, Skaife and co, just couldnt keep up with the younger ones "generally"

Brock was still competitive in '96 and '97 though, tends to lay the earlier lack of competitiveness at the feet of the middling nature of the Advantage Racing equipment rather lack of driving skill.

Not sure why Brockie didn't keep driving the enduros, would have been a shoe-in for the Skaife victories in '01 and '02; instead of only coming back to drive with Plato and Baird in later years.

The point being though, I don't think the channel 10 camera pointed to the 888 Lowndes car once during their telecast.
