acotrel should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
It must all mean something - but what ?

Racing a car or a motorcycle is a great way of getting your jollies. But in the end it is like playing table tennis - you need a good bat. The only reason I ever road raced a motorcycle was my interest in technology. My bike is a 1960s type machine which I built from parts in 1978. It is a a race-winner. My only aim is to make it better. But what does it really mean ?
I would like to know what is achieved by racing V8 supercars. It obviously provides a competition, but it is out of the reach of most punters.
As a spectator, I always found formula 5000 much more interesting.

If you fitted a meter into a V8 supercar, you could drive people home from the airport.

There was a time in the F5000 days where a local (WA) raced them, & was a real estate developer with a new development (Whitfords) 20 minutes out of Perth.
A mate in the game used claim it was done in a McLaren.

No passengers.
