Am I correct in that from the TV images it appears the Eggleston cars had a conical shaped fuel filler whereas the Tickford hoses had flat ends?

Very soft penalty considering the approach is 300Km/h

True, but a bigger penalty than I can remember anyone getting for crashing behind the safety car.

I believe (off the coverage) it was more to do with the alignment pin in the middle.

I shall ask the question of someone who will know for sure though.

The refueling spills were so bad they probably should have been black flagged.


They really need to force them to demonstrate that the gear works in a Practice Session.



Need to avoid the race being the first time everything is used in anger.

Caught the end of the Super2 broadcast on 10 on Saturday, which finished by saying that Fulwood was under investigation for the yellow flag breach - not bad for a week later. I suppose that program have already been broadcast on Fox, but surely not before the penalty was announced?

Sounds like Supercars wish to combine Super 2 and Super 3 for 2020. Why?

It doesn't make sense, who would want to sponsor a Super3 team now? When they know the absolute best outcome is a mid-pack finish?

I was told recently that Super 2 was likely to have as few as 8 cars in 2020.

I wouldn't want to be a super 3 guy driving with Super 2 guys. Super 2 is like stock cars at times, young blokes desperate to make a name for themselves, but a lot of them make a name for themselves for the wrong reasons. Super 3 of mostly old dudes living their childhood dreams now they can afford it. All these young punks need to drive like they own the car, and are paying the bills. Then the whole thing would probably be affordable and there would be more than 8 cars lining up. When the damage bill is bigger than all the other expenses for a weekends' racing, every weekend, surely you'd think maybe you're doing it wrong??

Well done to Jordan Boys for his race win on Sunday. It was a performance that could give his career a massive boost.

Fullwood is a deserving champion. Hope he graduates to the main series.

Paul Morris has big wraps on Fullwood, but gee its hard to draw a form line from this years series. Smallest fields for many years, maybe ever, and not sure about the depth of talent either.

Suspect his last lap screamer at Bathurst, although ultimately disallowed, shows a pretty good talent regardless...

True and you can only beat who turns up but the field this year is pretty light on talent IMO.

2017
Todd Hazelwood, Jack Le Brocq, Anton De Pesquale, Paul Dumbrell, Will Brown, James Golding, Garry Jacobsen, Richie Stanaway, Maculey Jones, Bryce Fullwood, Jack Perkins

2019
Bryce Fullwood, Thomas Randle, Will Brown, Jack Perkins (And I may be being a bit harsh on Boys and Goddard but are still inexperineced)
