It is the same thing when you take into account the conversation in this thread was just discussing cars sitting in pitlane for no reason other than copping a time penalty during a pitstop.

Both systems have cars sitting there doing nothing, so in the context of the conversation of this thread, it is the same thing.

The only race televised last year was the Saturday race.There is no telecast Thursday,Friday race is before start of telecast and Sunday is a possibility but last year 10 preferred to show network reality "stars".Fox only have rights to screen F1 and Supercar races at this meeting.

Ok I don't post much but have been a member for years but one peanut has destroyed this forum and the good discussion that once took place.

Mayhem's comment - 'this bloke would tell Neil Armstrong what the moon was like' would have to be the best way to sum it up.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Lads. Really dont care about your opinion of me. But thank you for caring enough about me to post

But what i am interested in is - that the driver penalty system used at Clipsal is poor for spectators.

Now obviously the drivers who benefited from it dont care because they got to spray champagne because of it and crowds just mean they can claim a tax write off, but if you spectated you should care because you got ripped off.

As i have claimed, many times, I understand why they do it, doesnt change that it is poor for spectators

Its good news that they have changed the system for the GP because as spectators we get to watch Gt3 racing in Australia and the best combinations of drivers, teams and cars should win

Different series have different rules to even up the competition, even Supercars.

No point picking on just AGT's rules in this department

BMW Team SRM will field two BMW M6 GT3s for the remainder of the 2017 Australian GT and Australian Endurance Championships.

Danny Stutterd will run under the BMW Team SRM banner from next weekend’s Australian GT round at Albert Park onwards, taking over the BMW M6 GT3 raced by Mark Skaife, Russell Ingall, Tony Longhurst, and Timo Glock at the Bathurst 12 Hour earlier this year.

The experienced GT and endurance driver will compete without a co-driver at the short-distance rounds, giving BMW Team SRM both a Pro-Am and a solo entry.
