[V8SC09R11&12] Dunlop Townsville 400, Townsville, Queensland

So... the inaugural Townsville 400! With its not-so-multi-purpose pit building (), a new track, no previous experience, it comes down to who can learn the track the quickest, and who can set-up their car quickly and efficiently.

Who's in with a chance? Is Caruso likely to continue his good form? Or will it be a 888-fest in their home state?

My Favourite 08 moment was when Courtney/Besnard comeback drive at Bathurst. Courtney raced through to dominate the opening stint had 15 sec. gap to Lowndes who was in 2nd. In the 2nd stint a slowly deflating tyre (originally diagnosed as a damaged anti-roll bar) slowed Besnard's stint in Courtney's car allowing Whincup to assert dominance over the field rest of the race. On lap 160 S.Richards, fading badly on rear tyres was unable to stop Courtney move into 3rd place.

As Larko said on the coverage today, I would hope this is not the case, for entertainment value anyway....

Will we have 'Splittergate' finished by then?

its meant to be finished before then, but it would be open to appeal by Triple 8 if it goes against them.

And if the part is legal then we have to decide how to deal with the part in the future

I'm not saying anything. Everytime I say <insert driver name here>, it goes horribly wrong for them. All I can say is someone is going to get pole and someone is going to win.

Would you believe I've been invited to a wedding in Innisfail the week before the V8's are in Townsville??

Imagine that conversation with the other half...

"Yes we are going"
"Yes we're staying up there an extra week"
"Yes you can buy a new dress for the wedding"
"Yes I am spending the weekend at the track....."
