twinwebbers should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The truth lies somewhere between Mark Petch and porsche91722. We are way too politically correct but Dave was a bit OTT. If it had been a netball comp and the girls had said something about the 'all boy team' in a similar manner, we all would have laughed it off and moved on.

Personally I think the most sexist remark made in the press conference was the journalist who asked the original question 'Are you worried about the slow girls?'. There are plenty of teams running at similar pace to the girls anyone from about position 25 down, why single the girls out on their sex alone?

I think the point is it's quite rich to fine a guy $25k for a light-hearted off the cuff comment about his peers (team mates) when the organization's "Miss" V8Supercars" competition has less to do with motorsport acumen and more to do with getting their boobs out.

I've regularly seen Reynolds give non-Female peers similar grief.

I'm yet to see V8Supercars offer a bloke $20,000 for jumping in his budgie smugglers.

Lol storm in a teacup. 20k is pocket change for Reynolds. Goes to show the NRL is setting the right example in treating women equally.

Quick query. (Are we allowed to say 'query??). Whats the difference between this and 888 tweeting that a pit lane reporters boyfriend comes too quick?? Equally classless yet somehow acceptable.

No reason other than being a Holden team.

bluesport is heading for a stewards' enquiry!
Reynolds was obviously not serious and meant no harm, but if society continued on that path could it lead to a downward spiral and more serious consequences for women in the future?.........and I am not a PC person!

This fine is silly. I bet any female racing against him would have rolled their eyes at worst.

If he calls Will Davo a D***head or Moffat a W***er that will be considered ok.

Well I guess that this rules out the #17 being called the d.c. mobile ?

Imagine if the #17 crashed into the #200 !

The dick mobile is into the pussy wagon

Honestly $25k is a bit OTT but I cant believe anyone doesn't see that what he said, where he said it, was wrong.

In a private conversation..meh, but in a press conference ...nah.

“Was I aware of the p***y wagon? Yeah, I think that’s great. Renee and Simone are really good people and really good drivers. I hope they perform well for us. I really hope they go well. Simone has never been here before and she doesn’t even understand we have a Kangaroo flag. I thought that was standard.”


Oh the shame what a *******!!!!

I will not pass judgment on Reynolds' comments, but I do hope V8SC takes the $25k and uses it for the further promotion of women in motorsport, and not for the Christmas fund.

Comment was light hearted but not needed, big deal

I'm more annoyed he's helped justify losing his #55 seat
