[CTCRA19R4] CarSales 2019 TCRA Round 4, Queensland Raceway-2-4 Aug

Driver swaps, car swaps, team swaps...

More cars, different cars, new cars...

Time to watch the TCRA package at the same track as Supercar just visited but a week ago. Will this impact the crowds? What will the comparative laptimes look like?

Who will win? Can the Hyundai juggernaut keep going? Or will the Honda crowd get their performance percolating?

We know the 'V8 Sports Sedans' times will be quicker than the Touring Cars. Whereas the lap time difference might be of interest to some it is largely irrelevant. My opinion.

You'd have thought the category would have placed her in one of the Audis, or perhaps the new Hyundai...

Same goes for Mr Vernon.

But nah, better leave some drivers with a bad taste in their mouths, because their teams can't get their act together.

Jean-Karl Vernay to drive the blue Audi.

He'll clean up.

Surely drivers go onto these things with their eyes open.

Expect lap times around FF speeds. At The Bend they were about six seconds slower than F4 but a lot more corners there.

If he doesn't fall foul of tighter driving standards.

ARG still spending up I see.

Do we compare the V8 lap times with the F1 lap times at Albert Park?

If not, then why are we comparing lap times here?

You must have missed the various comparison stunts over the years at Albert Park.

I wouldn't be happy, particularly if my sponsors are still on the car.

Because there are a lot of people out there that believe some categories are really fast when they really are not and vice versa and will ridicule certain categories as not being fast enough.

Yep, we do - including in the speed comparison sessions that chavez shared. Similar comparisons have been done at Bathurst and other circuits.

I don't understand the reluctance to talk about lap times. Laptimes at Bathurst comparing GT3 with Supercars is almost a guaranteed part of any discussion around the 12 hour each year. Why should this be any different?

Being slower or faster doesn't make for better or worse - simply cars being built to different tech rules. Any difference in lap times is of interest but it ain't anything more than that.
