RVSC24 R05 Darwin Triple Crown

Hotness.. in spectator comfort, track temperature and hopefully the racing.

Ford v’s Chev seems well alive now..

Are we predicting an #88 fight back?
And a #18 ROG..

Or not..

To be honest, I am bit Supercarred out-we have had so many events this year and we are only half way through the year!

Is that bloke Peter Adderton still running the series these days?

A lovely time of the year to be in Darwin.

Interesting that 888 may have lost a pair of engines in the #88 and #888 cars on the ‘track to town’ street parade drives…

Darwin has a decent ambient, and being stuck in traffic flows wouldn’t do good for cooling. Wonder if dry ice could have been useful here.

An expensive lesson perhaps.. and changing to the enduro engine now might not win many friends..

Interesting to see some of the drivers taking their V8Supercar race vehicles to town without driving suits/gloves/stack hats.

Does driving on the road at slower speeds somehow make it less of a crash or fire risk? I wouldn’t have thought so…

Did 888 call AANT for assistance?

We need to be adults here.

I wouldnt have thought they were a fire risk travelling at the speed of the general population. Do you wear your Stack Hat and Gloves when driving down town?

The answer is clearly yes to both.

A nicely cooked battery could easily have sparked a fire incident..

When was the last exploding battery? then jump out. A bit like the thousands of cars people drive home and park in their homes every night. Or these days, charge the batteries overnight under the house as you and the family sleep.
