Now 8 drivers with Barton Mawer joining in, some well credentialed drivers so should be a good competition.

After two practice sessions at 1:06 they're slightly slower than the fastest historic F5000 car (add them to the grid!?!) and slightly faster than the 2014 F3 lap record. About 3 sec faster than GT3 or Supercars.

It is expected to rain for this afternoon's race, but should be dry tomorrow if colder.

I'd written a summary the other day of the Sunday races I saw and other aspects of the weekend (great access to the teams, garages and drivers at the right time!), but managed to lose it. It was a shame the main race was spoiled, but these things happen sometimes. Might have another go at writing later, but in the interim here are a couple of photos from the weekend.

Today at The Bend Tom Randle topped the times however his best lap was about half a second slower than the F3
Lap record!

I saw the telecast and it was an impressive display by Randle. I didn't realise the lap was slower than F3 however it was the first time Randle had been in the car so I dare say he could improve. It will be interesting to see what can happen in 12 months' time.

Next race - support at the Albert Park GP!

Barrichello said he wants to drive S5000 for a second time.

I think everyone is getting paid. Of course not that much as Barrichello maybe, but for now the organizer are paying the whole series what I understand and that's why the series will be dead in at least 2 or 3 years.

From a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back. Pay seats don't go along with junior formulas.

The lap time is irrelevant, the F3 would be running soft tyres for a short race, the s5000s are currently running very hard and durable tyres suitable for ragging a much heavier car.
Softer tyres would more than wipe the deficit. (Bigger wings too.)
I hope they don't feel the need to go there!

Nice theory but the Oz F3 tyres are incredibly hard and you can literally do one set for the whole season. Plus they’re not exactly top spec cars either.
