I feel it is the kind of mistake many TCM drivers could make - at the end of the day a lot of them are gentleman drivers in big horsepower machinery.

Lots of damage, I heard one of the Porsches was literally destroyed.

JB is normally fairly measured, but I am not sure he is being fair, it isn't like it was a stupid move gone wrong, or aggressive bumping, someone got a bit keen on the loud pedal on a track that had been washed clean. The circumstances made for the damage, not specifically the driver's action.

What do you all think?

Bloke makes a mistake. Hardly red mist, more like, and I'll paraphrase Larry here: "Old bloke, cold tyres, f&@ked up".

Mr Bowe is also injured, which likely isn't doing a lot for his mood

Watching the accident numerous times, Bowe's hit doesn't seem major?

Frosty Upset At Rullo

Licence dispensation is still provisional...

Is anybody going to take Frosty seriously actually?

He just whines about everything these days and should consider himself lucky for 2015...

I don't think Rullo did anything too much wrong, he was doing his best to get out of the way given the field was upon him (and knowing all eyes would be on him)

It's one of those occasions where it would be better if he could just drive his line and it's up to the lappers to go around him (as happens in multi-class racing at places like Le Mans or the N24, or the Bathurst 12hr)

yeah this is and should always be the rule, but as per Frosty's complaint, if you sit on the inside, off the racing line, and the whole field is behind you... Sooner or later you'll be on the racing line.

Always the driver behind's job to get past a lapped car, and circumstances always dictate it will advantage some and disadvantage others, Frosty needs to suck it up.

I think Alex has done a very good job, relatively invisible so far, which for a 16 year old, is pretty solid!

Flashback to his comments about Aaren Russell in 2016 at Barbagello where he said the exact same thing just because Aaren who was faster overtook him. Feel bad for alex look at all the vitriolic bullshit he has to put up with now on social media thanks to one poor comment

I've also been idly wondering how much younger/older Layton Crambrook was when he raced in '99, by comparison to Alex.

Back of the napkin calculations but I believe he would have been about the same age as Alex when he raced?

I was racing HQs in the pits and Layton had raced HQs previously, and my possibly faulty memory was that Layton was only about 16 when he raced?

Born July 30 1981. Raced in 1998. So probably 16 turning 17.
