Pretty uneventful really, apart from Whincup providing the highlight.....

Yep. They were unbelievably well matched on the track and in the pits.
SVG had a slight edge in the wet, and that made the difference.

Shell V Power couldn't go back to back as everyone was onto them after last years cheating .

Inconvenient pace car timing took the champ out of play, but that's racing.

duggie, Shell didn't do anything last year that other teams haven't done in the past.
Red Bull/HRT would do the same without blinking.
People have short memories....

Well done Scotty for the Championship and well done Shane and GT for the Bathurst win.   A different way to deliver a tense last 10 laps.   

See what next year delivers

I'm an avid fan of the Supercars series, and religiously watch Bathurst....
But personally I thought this years race was quite processional with not a lot going on compared to other years. Other than Whingecup pushing for positions early in the race, there was bugger all actual "racing" for a position, and there didn't even appear to be much in the way of different strategies between the teams. It appeared to be  "follow the leader" until a scheduled pit stop or a safety car. I got a little excited for a few laps near the end when it looked like Cam Waters might have a crack at Gizzy, but even that amounted to nothing exciting in the way of trying to pass?

Honestly thats how I've seen it since Supertaxi's started. Look at the street circuits like Gold Coast...

I was a big believer in having the cars close to the same to prove who was best driver/team - instead of 2-3 teams being competitive and the rest there to make up numbers, but in reality that hasn't changed. Most cars are there to make a field and only a couple of teams genuine chance of winning.

Its a pit stop competition which you could just have each car do 5 laps and 5 pit stops and the whole thing over in an hour.

With the cars being so similar there arent many choices for passing compared to just race what you buy style of racing... Rose coloured glasses ???

The passing and actual challenging is what I miss - which with the new "huge announcement" on the future cars - it doesn't look like it will change much.

I think the new cars will be a step in the right direction.

As a category they acknowledge that aero has made it difficult to pass so they appear to be attempting to fix it properly in 2022.

The disadvantage of the aerodynamics.   While the aero helps hold the cars on the road to give fast drive the aero wash to the vehicle behind has the adverse effect of unstabilizing the vehicle which is why the past few years in particular there has been so much talk up and down the pit lane.   Hence all the comments about 'follows' and not racing.   Even Scotty says the same and why qualifying is so important and the reason for SVG's comment about it being a qualifying championship.   

Most of the aero needs to be taken off the vehicles and return it to a driver's race.

Penske bought what he wants and now packs up and leaves.   See how DJR go without Penske's backing.   

Good luck to Scotty.

Seriously,
Who has been influenced to buy the same model that won on race day in the last 20 years?

When you sign the cheque’s you can decide how and where you spend your dollars in pursuit of what you want, Motor Racing at the level Penske is involved in, is a business after all.  DJR hopefully will be stronger for Penske involvement but I’m not sure they’ll have the $s to splash around. Rumour has it Ludo is moving on too.
I like you hope Scotty makes it in Indy Car land.

Penske may be a billionare, but he didn't get there by spending his own money. What he brought to DJR was sponsors....and time will tell whether they stick around ? Next year possibly....the year after...who knows ?

think he brought a whole lot more than sponsors to DJR, especially considering the amount of racing he is involved in in the States, with Mustangs.

Completely different kettle of fish. The Ford nameplate in the grill would be the only common factor !
