Shane001 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Pending a failure or getting taken out, i reckon Lowndes/Luff are a pretty sure bet.

Still like my dark horses of the #47 and #55, I'm also going to make a wild prediction with Whingecup to put it in the wall before lap 100

Old Wingecup seems to be a little ratteled atm by his older and more experienced team mates new re-found form, never been a holden supporter but always a big fan of CL so i am hoping he can secure his 6th Mountain win to go one step closer to cementing his name as the Prince of Mt Panorama

depends whos the driver...

Hope Winterbottom takes this one out. The guy has obviously some great driving skills but dunno if he'll be a match for the T888 team, they seem to figure out how to get out of trouble and climb back thru the grid, and whincup or Lowndes will be too strong. but Im hoping Whincup to hit the wall midway thru and Lowndes to be overtaken on the last lap for frosty to win it thru the chase.

Humour me here but I cannot remember Frosty ever putting in a "great" drive like a from back of the grid win like Lowndes or Whincup or other greats have done. If he wins, he will win from the front, but I am skeptical we'll ever see greatness from him in the enduros, especially Bathurst, he's just never looked special up there. I guess FPR have done everything else to lose it for him up there too, and they do have the speed this year.

Well he raced pretty well in the Sandown 500 last week, started on the grid from 15th place to take a poduim finish is remarkable, so he does and can perform in the longer races and if he drove like that at next months Bathurst, he'll be up there for a chance to take out a win.

Off topic: they should have a Production race during (before) the Bathurst 1000, have the AMG C63, FPV R-Spec and HSV R8 gunning for it to see who takes the crown as the fastest production car in Australia, and laps the Bathurst in the quickest and also the Altima with another engine with similar performance. certainly counts for bragging rights

I like the Bright/Coulthard combination...

Wait, Bright is driving with Andrew Jones, you say? Oh, BJR are no chance then...

they finished 5th last year.

JB was in the car late, and was passed by CL in his haste to get the win, Car just didnt have the speed at the end.

I cant see them having gained the speed to be fast at the end this year, unless they get a bit lucky, they certainly didnt have it at Sandown

Might have had a bit more left if JB didn't have to drive the wheels off the thing to get it back in contention...

Tell him 'es dreaming. With Richo as codriver.........no way. fpr will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory/a good position.

Remember richos ride throught the chase? Or frosty coasting into the pits with the taillights melting ( pure gold )

FPR have in the past invented new and interesting ways to lose the race, and I thought they had started to shake that, but then look at what they did to #6 and #55 at Sandown!
