Flying from the other side of the world for this so hopefully be a more exciting race than Sunday’s (especially waking up at 4am to watch it) excited to experience the event and if the race it’s self is exciting than that would be a nice bonus

Perhaps Mr Penske will bring some go fast parts for the Falcon's when he comes out for Bathurst.

I know it's Bathurst and anything can happen but on current form it'd be hard to bet on anyone other than Whincup or SVG for the win.

Dane lays down the smack:
https://www.supercars.com/news/champ...?sf197962430=1

ZB fast out of the blocks, Ford teams whine about composite panels.

Scotty Mac gets on top of his car and shows blistering speeds while 888 and others struggle to figure out the ZB.

2 races later and now the ZB has a technical advantage.

If DJRTP had 2 drivers of equal ability, and PRA were not lost in the wilderness, things might be very different.

What is it about Scotty Mac that seems to make him a teammate killer? A bit like Frosty too, has a car set up a certain way nobody else can follow it.

For my ten cents with it is his ability to drive a car with a loose rear end on it without burning up the tyres or suffering under brakes & on turn in. Gives the car a straight line advantage from less wing relative to his team mate, especially in qualifying which is half the battle.

As for the disparity in aero up until now the difference was most pronounced at Phillip Island. It was talked about then but got lost in all the carry on about composite panels. The ZB's could pull out and pass in a way the Falcons couldn't get near.

The 888 cars appear to have excellent shocks for riding kerbs. Which is a lot about Adelaide and Sandown, less so Bathurst. Wanneroo is always about tyres & thankfully they will be resurfacing that over summer.

Anyway Bathurst is 888's to lose. The only hope for anyone else is Whincup has another brain explosion or SVG has a failure/accident. Both of those things occurring in one race would be highly unlikely. Judging by the way Lowndes leapt out of SVG's way at Sandown he wont be a factor.

Listening to teams, the biggest concern for reliability appears to be the transaxle. Who's going to be unlucky and suffer a failure at Bathurst?

I'm thinking this is most often at places with kerb hopping?

Transaxle failures at Bathurst have been fairly uncommon. Most teams tend to throw a fresh one in for the race.

Maybe for another thread, but why isn’t Tickford or Penske racing the Ford GT at B12Hr? Give Webber a run, maybe with Eric Bana.
