Well you know what, 121 laps completed and a hit to the wall on fluid dropped, which we've seen plenty of people do over time and we'll see again one day.

Good solid experience for both of them, unfortunate that Renee ended up in the wall but that is inexperience for you.

I didn't get to watch the whole race or watch live timing so I don't really know how they went through the day or who did how many laps, but either way finishing with a straight car after that early incident is good experience for them.

Personally I think this is an example of political correctness gone mad / tabloid headline grabbing 'journalism'. If Dave's entire reply is taken into consideration , it was quite encouraging and well meaning toward the girls entry. Instead the only thing highlighted was the pussy wagon prefix of the comment. Should he have said it, probably not, but one throw away line is not the end of the world and not what he should be judged on.

Unfortunately with age of social media and internet forums etc. It gives a voice to the vocal minority who like to throw there arms up and crucify anyone who says or does anything that may not agree with their own personal sensibilities. This then seems to create a social media storm of disgust/disapproval of said individual or entity. This then prompts organisations to take a stand on what the social media throng are up in arms about in order to not be dragged into said indignation by association. The unfortunate thing is that the opinions of these social media warriors usually don't represent the feelings of the vast majority of the community.

And the actions of the organisations have given power to vocal minorities to make lots of internet noise to generate the changes that they want.

The other issue I think that clouds the issue is that sexism is not a two way street. For example. I have a colleague. A 40ish woman whose workstation is plastered with imaged of a scantily clad Justin Bieber. This dosen't bother me, and as far as I know doesn't bother anyone else. However I wonder if I chose to plaster my workstation with images of scantily clad 20ish women would I get any complaints. I'm sure I would. But what is the difference ????

Stay away from the work colleague Trev as she's obviously mad and desperate.

Reynold's comments tarnish the class and even wider the whole sport.V8's have a unfortunate and mostly undeserved reputation outside motor sport as a sport of choice for the Bogan Nation.These comments have done much to perpetuate and promote this point of view.
A motoring writer interviewed on ABC702 on Friday morning as I was on my way to Bathurst said how stuff like this and the Gold Coast 600 ad that showed more scantily clad girls than cars or drivers made this look like a sport of old white men living in another time.
If people think Reynold's comments were just fun just think if someone made these comments about your daughter/wife/girlfriend/mother in their job.Would you find that just fun?
A lot of followers of the sport wouldn't see a problem because they are living in a world far removed from the ethics of most of society.Reynolds biggest problem was not what he said but that he even thinks like this.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I think we need to remember something important here. It's a sedan, not a wagon

GT is dead right.

Shame DR didn't learn anything after getting a 25k fine and is retweeting stupid supporter bs.

Interesting to read on Speedcafe today that Reynolds said that the crowd made him feel a lot better calling out those "magical words" during his parade lap.

So how is it offensive for Davey to say it once in a press conference with 10 people in the room?

But not offensive for the clowns at News Limited to reprint his exact words every day since Thursday??????

BTW there was a bloke with a pantech in Harris Park printing up custom number plates for the man cave/lawnmower/pool room.

No prizes for guessing what the most common request was.................

bluesport is heading for a stewards' enquiry!
Not surprising to see GT's comments considering his wife is a driver.

Nothing more pathetic than having grown men jump on the PC feminist bandwagon.

Have we heard anything about what the girls thought of the comment? I have to watch the race with whatever footage I can scrounge off the uploading sites (and with whatever space my HDD has left), so I don't get all the pre-race and post-race interviews and that sorta stuff so if there were any comments from them I didn't hear/see them.
