Cracker of a race in the ausiecars today. 10 laps of dodgem car spin'm-round action. Cars punted into tyre barriers at multiple corners, 2 got beached on gravel in the chicane, about 2 dozed wild passing moves (most of which led to the above mentioned carnage).......................................and not a pace car to be seen  ;D

I recon even Bird would have enjoyed it  >:D

I'm tipping Erebus to be the lead Holden team for the start of the season. They apparently never ran the now banned twin spring dampers and the #99 car has also been upgraded to the same go fast parts as Davy's car.


ADP finally gets equal equipment and finishes first practice session in P1.

Winterbottom the fastest 888 car...

Both GRM cars in the bottom 5 and first car into the wall.

One of the reasons I bit the bullet and went to Kayo instead of FTA. At least on Kayo you get to see all the support categories, without all the channel 10 dribble.
Do they still have those awful channel 10 cross promotional "celebrity" interviews?

'Watched' to top ten shoot out on the Live Timing on Supercars.com and they are still playing catch up on FTA TV.  Generally they might have been at worse a minute late.

Caught a few minutes of the dual cab utes this afternoon. Thought I was watching a live CCTV feed from my local bunnings carpark.
Surly we’re not supposed to take that stuff seriously.. ??

At least they’ve got the physics right with the Hilux taking a nap on the corner. Exactly the way Hiluxs have been doing it since the 80s.... ;D

The Superutes are an absolute joke.  Cams had the Stadium Trucks banned on the grounds of safety.  Hopefully Cams apply the same.



Well done Scotty and DJRTP.  Picked right up where they left last year.

The 888 cars clearly have a handling issue, they looked very untidy compared to last year when they were on rails.  Not happy on the new single springs?
Still an impressive 2-3 result.

Then the usual suspects come out in force, already squealing parity after one race.

Dick Johnson was on the radio during the week.
He said the new Mustang is in fact last years Falcon with a new body on it.
Because it’s now a controlled sport all the cars are the same except for the engine and personal preference to your suspension settings.
They all use the same chassis, gearbox suspension and diffs. Simply bolt what ever body panels to suit your team.
It’s far from the old days when they had to be almost the same as a car you could buy from the dealer.

Rick Kelly decided to be a smart arse..... that didn't end well for him.

Him and Tander could be from the same genes.

Yeah, I know, i don't like the supercars.... but it was that or my kitchen rules.

Nah, Rick learnt all his smart arse attitudes from his big brother.

How come all the cars that left the transit lane and drove thru the working lane to get around Chaz and Rick didnt get penalised

Not sure why but it's time to close the pit lane under safety car conditions.

I've been saying that for years, and scrap forced fuel stops, just let them race.
I was of the opinion that you had to keep 2 wheels on the race track at all time, if that was enforced
every car would have to be penalised or disqualified.
And debri sometimes causes a safety car, but mirrors don't count?

Hazelwood had the decency to stop and let the 888 pit crew get out of harm's way.  Courtney proceeded to ram him through.

Hopefully the stewards are reviewing the footage tonight.

As for Rick. He needs to be flogged with a bike chain.  Yes it was an unsafe release, but to bulldoze him and then follow up with  a pitlane brake test a lap later...

888 have work to do.  Out qualified and out raced by 2 888 customer cars and both are ZB virgins....

  Rick may be a prick, but he  did say he was blindsided by his low driving position, and didnt see chaz. you need to have foxtel to hear that...


if you watch the replay from the nissan he was adjusting belts and other settings at the time.

chaz and his team were the gooses here.  He nailed him from the rear on pit lane re-entry. Wanker.

Yes he would have been blindsided, but after the first contact he had 3 choices.

A. Brake.
B. Back off the throttle.
C. Keep his foot buried into the throttle.

It's obvious which one he chose.

Holdsworth was coming into the pit in his green/white Mustang immediately prior to Mostert's release.
I think Mostert's controller may have missed RK's green/white Nissan tucked in behind him.

it is a control chassis and frame you know..?  Same one as for the Opels and nissan, why the Moostangs look so weird.
 
I watched a lot of the TA2 racing online from Sydney today, with real Mustangs and Dodge  Challengers.  Great stuff.

I do know it’s a controlled class. I used to sponsor DJR and Rick Kelly Racing. I was just repeating what Dick had said in the radio during the week about how he reused last years car with a new body for this years series
