Just waiting for Frosty to let his driving do the talking...

He is gonna end up in a team worse than PRA and he is gonna rage and blame other people and it won't end well.

No doubt pressure is building, impossible for it not too.

But to say he has a glass jaw is pretty harsh.
I reckon he learnt a lot last year and he will be fine.

This time certain bulls**t is really starting to grind my gears. They cut 2 laps off the F5000 race, saved a whole 2 minute 40 seconds. But the gap between the last support race finishing and the Supercars race starting is 45 minutes!! What the hell are they going to do for 45 minutes?? Bet they'll have some bogan trying to sing, motorbikes doing rolling burnouts and stoppies up and down the front straight, and all manner of other bulls**t WHICH ISN"T RACING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I want to see motorcycle stunts I'll go to a motorcycle show, if I want to see someone trying to sing I'll watch Australia's Got No Talent. I"m watching this cos I WANT TO SEE CAR RACING!!!!!!!! Getting really sick of this **** from Supercars, they really need to get their act together on multiple fronts.

If the time certain **** with the support classes was because they were starting the main race at a time that had some time ( say 10-15 minutes ) built in at the end in case it ran longer than anticipated, that wouldn't be so bad. But when they do the time certain crap on the support classes, then waste time on frivolous **** before the main race, that then starts with no time to spare at the end, it's very hard not to feel totally ripped off, and I'm talking everyone getting totally ripped off - support class people, the main game people ( they do their strategy, pick tyres etc based on going the full distance ), the punters than pay a lot go get in the gate / travel / accommodation etc, sponsors that know there car should have won because it was on the right / better strategy for a full distance race, the list goes on.

Here's another one. In soccer / cricket / horse racing / you name it, if the result is tampered with, people get prosecuted / life bans / heavy fines etc. People bet on car racing too, so if you put your money on car x, and he's clearly going to win, but the officials call the time certain crap and he gets shafted out of the last 4 laps he needed to pass for the win / the leader to make his final pitstop / whatever the case may be, you lose your money, yet had the result not be tampered with by the time certain joke, the car you had your money would have won and you'd get a nice payout. I reckon there needs to be some serious questions asked about all this time certain stuff. Would be interesting if someone pursued it in the above case. If I had the money I'd pursue it out of principle, because it's ruining the spectacle.

With your incredible ability to predict the future surely you can't go wrong on the punt?
