Your list is missing one of the leading contenders...



It's good to have a dream and achieve it , even if the Formula Ford training and so on to be a true contender is not really there.

Things went from bad to worse for rookie V8 supercar driver David Thexton when he handed himself the red card at Oran Park in Sydney yesterday.

The 40-year-old New Zealand-born multi-millionaire was the subject of many complaints from drivers after Friday's practice session, concerned about his lack of ability and the fact that he could become a safety hazard.

Yesterday, the complaints increased after Thexton, who bought Cameron McLean's supercar franchise this year, had been involved in a collision with David Besnard's Falcon during a pre-qualifying practice session. After talks with stewards, Thexton offered to withdraw from the meeting.

On Friday, Thexton was five seconds off the pace of the second-slowest driver, and this season only twice has he gone fast enough in qualifying to force his way into the field.

Aside from Mr. Thexton, there were plenty more (somewhat more competitive) amateur drivers in the series back in the days when privateers were encouraged to enter the primary ATCC/Supercars series. Notably current Tickford team owners Rod Nash and Rusty French among others.


These days wealthy amateurs are more likely to enter the Australian Manufacturers Championship (production cars), Australian GT or Carrera Cup as their dollars seem to be largely unwanted in the Supercars series. [That is, unless the driver has a suitable professional racing background in Formula Ford / Super2 to go with the dollars they bring.]

Matt Neal, who can drive, never failed to disappoint in his handful of Supercar starts.

Not sure how serious we're meant to be here, given there are many highly-respected and highly-credientialed drivers in that list.

Everyone has different opinions, ask the fanatical Greg Murphy fans what they think of Marcos Ambrose and you will get my point and vise versa

I don't buy into the parochial biases, so that's me out.

Rod Nash wasn't too bad. Rusty French never raced supercars - group c in 1980s.


Most of the privateers in the mid to late 1990s were okay, none stand out as complete rubbish.
