This weeks RPM is in depth interview with Craig Lowndes.

According to Mr. Phelps' social media accounts, he'll be too busy toning his muscles and slicking his hair so he can look his best for Instagram.

Judging by the RPM episode... it would be difficult to argue with a cynical view, to propel an old soldier to the front of the stage, into the limelight...

Thought that was a good piece. Mark Howard is really getting quite good at this style of interview isn't he?

I guess it's to be expected but it really is amazing how much like his father Craig looks as his hair gets more grey.

Or maybe he just wanted to defend himself after being crucified in the media. Beginning with a cynical view is probably not the best starting point

Except there was zero reference to retirement, in answering the issues spoken of in the article that was claimed to be so blatantly wrong.

Having worked thru various possible causes and outcomes, the one that stands out is the purposeful, intentional media beatup, designed for a next level of promotion.

Seemed very orchestrated, but good interview nonetheless.

Meanwhile in Townsville,

Lowndes announces fulltime retirement. Will stay on at Triple Eight as an enduro driver, coupled with work on the TV broadcast.

CL Retirement announcement article here.

What a career and what a gifted driver he's been, he'll be greatly missed but I think that he has his timing about right.

I've only in recent weeks begun watching Supercars after a near decade of not (not by choice, I'm in the UK and without access to most good things!)

Mr Lowndes was one of the guys I used to root for and one of not too many names I now know in the field. Super driver, great personality, all the best Craig ��

Be super if he can pull off another Bathurst win in his co-driver role for 2019!
