That makes sense. I understand the problems are connected with higher g-forces than expected - lots of grip, high corner speeds and big brakes.

So does this give credence to the oil type/brand selection issue?

Or indeed are the 2 ex-V8Supercar pilots in the SuperCheap cars pushing them too hard for a production based engine package?

Interesting Mr Scott's car doesnt overheat... with that Peak Antifreeze signage

well interesting day at manfeild---good racing from the super tourers and a few surprises.nice job richard moore in race 3.
support classes--crap..
Crowd, POOR--i was at the feb tier 1 event and this crowd today would have been half that,which must be a concern.
main class was bloody good then,rest of program disapointing.

It seems logical doesn't it. I guess we'll hear more in due course.

Gotta agree Harcey, the supports here at Manfeild were the worst viewing in the 3 rounds to date. BUT, the ST racing was the best i've seen yet, Manfeild was a fantastic track for these guys, lots going on and plenty of passing. Crowd did seem pretty low, would point most of that at the combination of poor weather and TV3's coverage.

Seeing Colins car get torn up like that sucked, hope the RP guys can get it straightened out and running in time for Hampton Downs, also hopefully the Supercheap boys are back and firing at 100%.

Perhaps when mr short gained anlawful access to SCR's workshop and in between photographing and measuring their cars, he also put some foreign objects in the oil!

Harcey, dont know if you missed my post after yesterdays revelations and maybe it was a bit of tounge and cheek but if this is the level MSC MPL or MSNZ associated personell are willing to stoop to then anything is possible.

Really good racing today, most impressive! Apart from the two DNS cars and the terrible crash, didn't seem to be any further incidents re reliability so that was good. Disappointing if turnout was low (hard to see from TV mind you but I don't know where spectators go normally at Manfeild).

Nasty looking weather will keep all but the most fanatical of fans at home and watching it live on TV. Probably as well the winter break has been extended a bit, I'm sure September is better than August.

See you all at Hampton Downs!

maybe $45 is too much for a race meeting that is very top heavy. with st talk leading up to this weekend.. of bigger crowds then what was World Superbike rounds.. you would've thought they had pre sold a lot of tickets. the Manawatu Saloon Champs was (meant to be) held over the same weeking.. so seeing a small crowd was disappointing.

promax since the world superbike champs more than half the crowd capacity has been removed with the pit garages which took out the entire main middle embankment.
i was amazed at such bluster from the circuit in the build up to the event...they will be crying when the add up the receipts for yesterday

plus with marquees taking most of the room on the embankments (at these sort of meetings).. i was wondering where everyone was going to fit?

Can any one explain to me why Booth and Heimgartner stopped to change tyres, I thought that a pace car was brought out if it was deemed a dry race to allow all cars to change. Mr Booth lost 2 laps that he would not get back if a safety car was out. Have the rules changed or does the booth team not know them?
