Supercars posted about Lee Holdsworth desperately trying to break his 1800 odd day, streak without a podium.

I couldn't resist commenting but someone put me on my place

I stand by my comment, early part of the year was the best chance Lee ever had.

Looks like Chaz has that one covered.

Pity his next comment was cut off.

He just had a go at other people posting, but I think a fair few are happy to see a current driver engage a "troll", not that I think of myself like that; Lee is a journeyman flattered by a fast car.

I have been called some pretty good names.

I think there were some trolls on that thread but your comment wasn’t one of them.

Tickford arguably has 2 journeymen, an inconsistent occasional front runner, and Richie Stanaway’s codriver in his Sandown win..

Big question, will Randle be in the top 10?

Mr Randle has been shown to be unlucky at keeping his equipment out of incidents. In theory he is in the 7th best car in the field

Having the best car "in theory" is an interesting concept, as this is exactly what Team 18 and Frosty signed up for just prior to the season's commencement.

Not relevant anyway, don't need to be a, racing driver to have an opinion.

If Lee couldnt crack a podium while the Mustang burst out of the blocks against Holdens in all sorts, he isn't likely to get one now.

Lee is up 11 spots on last year
Will Davison up 9 spots
Cam Waters up 8 spots

All of them could be higher but for incidents, particularly friendly fire.

The 3 of them didn't just work out how to drive in the off season. The car is the reason for their upturn in form.

If Randle does nicely and I was Lee I might justifiably worry. He is a long time past his best. Sponsor relationship could be the key perhaps. I think that is Cam"s saving grace, he is, otherwise a bit ordinary.

Looks like the general consensus among your facebook 'peers' is that Chaz owned you.

Insofar as being x amount of spots up, that cannot be definitively measured until the end of the season.
Unless you compare where each driver was placed in August 2018 to where they are placed now.

Nevertheless, there are lots of reasons for those driver's improvements this season other than the Mustang alone; including 888 not having their act together, and Lee escaping from the hapless Team 18.

Right.

Oh the Kellys, WAU & BJR don't have their act together either right?

Waters was higher 2 years ago but both Lee and Will were in the boonies.

Also the hapless Team 18 is only 150 points off Holdsworth with a pole to their name for the year, in a single car team.

I did a search and didn't see it posted, but Walkinshaw-Andretti are sending a Canadian and American over for the big race:

I don't really need incentive to watch Bathurst, but I will make an extra effort this year to find the full race as I like both of these guys. It's tough as it often "conflicts" with my home race, Petit Le Mans and will again this year.

If they use Janet Guthrie & Johnny Rutherford as their benchmark then they should be relatively successful.
It will be doubly hard with both drivers lacking experience rather than having co-driver roles.
