Trevor should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I can't believe that some people are still so gullible to think that this 'racing' is not staged and controlled by (V8) Supercars and their lackies CAMS


How do you think Frosty won the championship, here Roland, a stack of cash to let Frosty win

The sales in Sydney Harbour Bridges seem to be strong right now.

I think people should be penalised for their actions, not for the consequences of these actions.

My thoughts exactly. I bet RD & TE would not have been pleased with that footage getting a run.

You're officially the most cynical bloke I know and that's saying something! I think the competitive nature of people like RD et al is far, far stronger than any love for the folding stuff.

So Shenken is in hospital and Masi is taking over. Is there a qualified race director in the country as a backup to Masi when Shenken eventually retires?

In adelaide JC turned simona around while she entered the pits, no penalty
in WA rullo turns Lowndes around while lowndes enters pits. Penalty

No consistency

Different track, completely different pit lane entry setup, different situation with one driver staying on the "racing line" and the other off it, different briefings to drivers.

As long as the penalties are applied consistently at that track to the instructions given at the briefing at that track, all should be good.

No, and that is just the way Schenken likes it

So why aren't they using the other pit entry, which would have avoided the Lowndes/Rullo incident?

Or is that the sort of 'action' the catagory is looking for?
