Stewards cannot walk in and start giving out penalties.

simple
That clarifies what happened last weekend, "RD (Roland Dane) and CoC confer".............

A shame to lose it
That massive body of water everyone walked along didn't guide you at all???

Te run down the hill from 2 and the run down to the hairpin were superb viewing
Better still in the garage.

I had a look there Saturday.

If you could ensure a good position the run down the hill from 2 is by far the best.

I didnt get around there. Was there a screen?

I did enjoy the hairpin, especially when the people in front left on saturday and we could move to the fence. We had a big screen as well

Was I the only one to notice Lowdnes' bump on McLaughlin's left rear qtr-panel on the lead up to turn two, a couple of seconds before the 'title deciding' incident?

It makes you wonder if Lowndes would have passed McLaughlins C pillar by the incident scene, if he hadn't have made that little bump....

The water was fine, finding an entrance gate was the complicated part. Sunday better than Saturday but no logical reason exists to not label Gate 1 as Gate 1..

Full rundown of how the penalties against 17 were done from the DSA: Bairdo speaks

All makes sense to me I have to say.

As a long time DJR supporter, I agree with everything that he says, unfortunately

The penalties were always ther in my opinion

Im a bit concerned by his justification of the difference between J Dub at NZ and Scott at Newcastle though.

If you run someone out of track then surely there has to be a penalty

Maybe environmental considerations are taken into account, ie: grass verge v concrete wall?

The support paddock gate made it easier, still had the queue over the bridge though.

...other than vast amount of signage that had to be placed and low priority for labelling a gate as 1 (or 2 or 3 or whatever).

There were maps up around the place and surely anyone who came in via one entrance would at least know how to get back to that place for exit?

I'm struggling to understand the problem GTR?
