Entertaining weekend!

We have been spoilt by the Supercars/Foxtel coverage but anytime race cars are on tv I am happy.

No worries, that wasn't apparent via the tv would you believe!

Looked to me there was contact between the Hondas despite what the commentators said, the little nudges from Heimgartner on D'Alberto probably didn't help.

With relatively small fields it doesn't help when a few cars get taken out at the first corner.

The majority of Australia has never seen the Foxtel Supercars coverage

I think the broadcast quality stems from just airing the the livestream

So much money spent on the series by ARG, a pity a bit more could'nt be invested to improve the quality of what is seen on the live SBS TV product

Some of Emma Notarfrancesco's pit reporting left a lot to be desired as well......just let Jack do it himself next time please

I bet they all watch Netflix though...

I've seen every live Supercars event since the current TV deal commenced, and I don't have Fox. Where there's a will there's a way.

Unfortunately Jack's appearance was a one-off.

Noonan needs to chill out a bit.

Any truth that one of the cars has significant damage to the roll cage from yesterday’s accident?

Touring Car Times are suggesting the Alfa is stuffed.

I'm inclined to agree that both cars will need a re-shell.

I don't think the direction was too bad, although they did miss the race 1 podium. It was a lot better than the idiocy at the end of the British GT race on Sunday. Camera positions could be improved though, both trackside and in-car.

I know this isn't a big budget production but there really isn't any need to have ad breaks during the races. Even ITV, as crap as they are, manage to show BTCC races uninterrupted. And the time certain rubbish has to stop. There have already been three races which haven't gone the distance.

The racing was close when it was happening but there were far too many accidents spreading the field out and lots of cars with major damage. Not something that a new series needs when it's trying to get off the ground and gain momentum.

I'm happy the Alfa (Dylan O'Keefe) picked up a pair of wins!! Shame the same Alfa is a write off though.
I thought the racing was pretty good too.
I agree the coverage/commentary is ordinary at times but it is a new series, so maybe the polish will come with time.

Funny how people pooh-poohed my suggestion that this would really increase costs when it inevitably happen...

Also from the "who writes this ****" pile, Mazda to join TCR:

Not that I take issue with Mazda joining, but Auto Action spruiks:

.... which is against the rules of TCR

Then again, I dunno what the hell the Cyan racing team in WTCR is, if it isn't a factory racing team?
