Sandown TCR and S5000

Sandon Park this weekend hosts an amazingly varied program of events and categories. Headline act is TCR Australia, can the Alfa of Dylan O'Keefe get back in front or will Will Brown show the dominance he had at Winton? Can the VWs be up there again as at Winton or will Sandowns long straights work against them?


S5000 has created huge interest and has attracted a field of drivers with a great variety of experience. Can star signing Rubins Barrichello use his experience to see off young guns Brown and Capo and will the testing and F3 experience of Tim Macrow win the day.

Add on the Porsche GT3 Challenge, Australian GT and the increasingly impressive Australian Production cars and it is a program of events that Supercars will probably envy.


The only downer appears to be possible ordinary weather.

Unfortunately, it wouldn't be Sandown in September without ordinary weather

The Barrichello mobile looks pretty cool in "Ferrari" red. Matt Brabham can hopefully find some of the form that saw him star on the "Road to Indy" program a few years ago.

Currently saying showers Saturday but not much on Sunday, which suits me.

Main interest is the S5000 but will be good to see TCR and the proddies too, don't often get to non historic meetings these days.

Looks like a 13 car field will line up for the first ever race meeting for S5000 with NZ driver Tyler Cockerton the latest announcement with one more to come today at the Phillip Island test day.

The attempts to attract drivers to S5000 somehow reminds me of when CAMS introduced F4 to this country.

BTW can we bring all Oz open wheeler discussion to this forum now such as FF, FV etc? What are the mods views on this as the precedent seems to have been set with the inclusion of S5000.

The S5000 cars were quite spectacular but the sound reproduction on the SBS free to air broadcast wasted a lot of the spectacle.
The short duration of the race due to safety-cars didn't really give the new series the exposure it needed. Davo tested the halo and crash-worthyness fairly convincingly. Fence structures failing at Sandown have always been a drag and over the tears we have lost many laps of racing while rebuilding them.
The real need is to get some seat time for drivers so that we can get some racing over a reasonable duration. A few testing days at PI would probably improve the entertainment (and probably save some money).

Only watched the FTA on Sunday. How was the streaming?

Streaming quality was great. The whole package however needs a big cuddle to bring it up to scratch.

Huge S5000 crash.

Stream worked fine for me (only watched on Sunday), but I also watched the replay of qualifying and heat 1. Cars look a bit tricky to drive, especially on cold tyres. Looks like it's going to be an interesting series in the future; will definitely be tuning in for The Bend.
