Obviously very early days, but seeing McLaughlin on it straight away bodes well for a classic Holden v Ford battle this season.

Rick Kelly in the Datto :) isn't far behind either, hopefully it will become Nissan v Ford v Holden battle, in that order!

I think Fabian Coulthard would be shitting bricks right now. He's had a year to settle into the team and learn the car, and still Scotty beats him in every session so far in his Falcon debut. I'm a huge fan of McLaughlin, so I'm loving his form, but if the season keeps going the way it's going, Coulthard will be under some pressure to perform

How it can get past so many people to get to that point is concerning :S

SVG ran away with it in the end, so that was a little disappointing as there was potential for a handful of drivers to battle it out.
Some of the penalties such as the one that McLaughlin received are way too severe and the kerb hopping detector is laughable after they showed R Kelly having his entire car over the kerb and he didn't get pinged.

And perform he did..... you must of motivated him.

Respect to FC for his efforts today.

Didn't expect that, but I'm always happy to be pleasantly surprised.

Interesting to see no penalty for the Whincup/Frosty incident, while Reynolds and McLaughlin both had a tour of pit lane for relatively minor infractions.

First time I've ever found myself agreeing with Mark Skaife, instead of a drive through, perhaps a time penalty to be served at either the next pitstop or post race would be more suitable for minor things like that?

McLaughlin succumbs to the pressure and SVG keeps piling on the wins.

To add a thought to that, the Murdoch empire itself is struggling to make a profit from its old-world business model these days. No clickbait headlines pointing that out of course. It's more fun undermining the work of others.

Good read. I like the idea of no points for Enduro cup drivers using it as to keep match fit. Leaves the rest of the grid able to fight for why they are there for-the championship itself. It was a good idea for Nascar to implement with their second tier series and Super2 should follow suit.

Definitely worth considering. But where do we draw the line between someone like Dumbrell who has had a long career in V8's, and someone like Andre Heimgartner or Chris Pither, who have bounced in and out of V8's during their careers and are still trying to find their way back in? Maybe a cutoff of X amount of V8 Championship race starts?

Maybe if you've spent at least one full season in the main game?

I'm hoping that Fabs and Scott Mc don't take it in turns to be on the money, with the other languishing. They both need to be on the money each round, as at the moment I see them as the only threat to SvG and Whincup. PRA have too many instances of shooting themselves in the foot to challenge over the whole year. Lowndes I think is on the slide. The rest will all be fighting over 5th in the championship down, and will only be higher if 12/17/88/97 have recurring issues. Fabian also needs to ensure he gets results alongside Scott Mc so pressure will be on there

On another note, Longhurst talking about the biff. Good way to make the V8 fans more stereotyped as bogans Tony...

Maybe this should be allowed in real life in the crowd when relating to a certain poster on a certain other forum site? Oh wait, he claims to already have been threatened. Wonder why that would be?

Scotty Mac and Fabs certainly need to be ganging up on SVG and JW from the outset. Really looking forward to a competitive year with half a dozen drivers hopefully being in contention come the late races.
If they bring back the biff, Nick Percat better look out.
As far as the individual you are alluding to Axe, I see he's as popular as ever, continues to ruin the place and deserves everything he gets and to think that he predicted the downfall of Australian GT 3-4 years ago ;)
