Danielsun should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Is Russell Rusty?

And that, my friends, just about sums it all up. Although of course I haven't seen any footage of the incident or the moments leading up to it, but from what I gather, Ingall caught Imrie at Turn Four. At QR, Turn 4 is a rather tight little number that leads straight into 5, the whole of which there is one line and one line only through (in the V8s - we're not talking club racing here!!).

For Russell to have expected Imrie to move over there is absolutely bloody ridiculous, I'm afraid. Unless you expect the driver being overtaken to move off the track totally, there is no way to pass there. We've all seen what can happen there: witness Mike Downard in the Super Tourers last season. Not the place to pass anybody, let alone cleanly lap them.

Oh, punting someone off after the finish ain't a good thing either...
