Mr Muscat however, does have the runs on the board, away from Supercars.
In the ute, Mr Barbera is/was an absolute gun.

Absolute gun is a stretch. Ryall Harris is closer to being a gun in that series. Barbera had good rounds, but the difference between good rounds and bad ones were mainly measured in dollars.

Sure, he's quick in a ute, but as per above, he's a liability.

Perkins helped Courtney pull a HRT car of all things onto the podium.
Dale Wood.........oh Lord!

Craps all over David Wall. Puts Dale Wood on a pedestal.

Sound logic.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
2 drivers who have had similar careers, same age

Wood, probably has slightly better supercar results (concluding that because of the Bathurst record 2 top tens)

yeah I'm mystified too - twice GT champion outright and won Carrera Cup?

Certainly has never shown the same potential in Supercars but neither did some other guys who are very highly regarded in GT cars.

Maybe there is a "style" issue but a great driver should be able to overcome that.

It was thought that the Volvo should have suited him well, but it never really played out that way when he was driving solo. Having said that, in the #33, he was as quick as anyone.

Also Woody scored a podium in his full time rookie campaign in 2014 if I'm remembering correctly

When you look at how that race played out, Alex Rullo could have scored that podium.

Wood did qualify 3rd that day though, so he didn't completely luck into it.

Actually looking at their qualifying results Wood and Wall have both qualified in the top 10 on several occasions at sprint rounds, while Tim Blanchard's only top 10 qualifying performances came when he was a co-driver to David Reynolds a few years back.

Then again Dale Wood crashed into the back of his teammate at Bathurst in 2014, under safety car....
