ford71 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Temps will be a lot nicer than other years.
Might see a little rain too.

Is the Advertiser Adelaide's main newspaper?

If so, well done.

From memory I think that the Advertiser is Adelaide's only newspaper (other than suburban stuff of course).

His sister is the media person for MSR, and a combination of connection and a good story to write about from Mr Hazelwood clearly seems to make promoting him an attractive proposition.

Note the newspaper didn’t choose past Adelaide 500 winner Mr Percat, or fellow Adeladeians Mr Pye or Mr Slade for the cover...

Better to have a good news motorsport story on the front page, than the usual sex drugs AFL boofhead footballer piffle dribble.

A lot better than the Barnaby Joyce sex scandal with my female staffer taking up pages!

A mate did make a comment yesterday that the Supercars seem to be b,e keeping a low profile on promoting themselves this year- we finally get a article in our local cocky cage liner on Scott McLaughin and Adelaide today!

A field of 15 for the Audi Sport R8 LMS Cup, including 5 local entrants. How exciting.

5 years since I came down as a flaggie for this. I genuinely hope it goes off without major incident (turn 3, I'm looking at you!) and that everyone - teams, spectators, volunteers - have a cracker of a weekend.

I'm not remotely jealous*

*maybe just a bit

Bit of a surprise only 9 overseas entries appear with nearly half the field made of Aussies who probably wouldve entered AGT had there been an AGT round. How will the internationals fare with Turn Eight one wonders.

Great to see Hazelwood on the front cover of the Advertiser btw

back in November when it was announced, we were told 10 Aussie entries had already signed up

Bit underwhelming. lets hope the racing is good and we dont spend too much time under safety car

They are also a sponsor of the event, hence the coverage. Not an indication of actual newsworthiness (not that anything in a junk Murdoch tabloid ever is).
