    As the Aussie V8's seem to be getting more popular every year I thought it's only right to make a thread on them. I've searched but nothing really came up. There is only 1 Guideline to follow which is

    Keep all race info etc to this one thread, so that there aren't heaps of threads on this one topic

    For those who don't know what V8 Supercars are.

    V8 Supercars is just another name for the Australian Touring Car Championship. It consists of two makes of cars, Holden and Ford. The close and fierce racing nature makes for good moves and big crashes. Always exiting. They race in various places around Australia and in 1 place in New Zealand.

    That's the basics of V8 Supercars.

    As said in the title this thread is for posting results and general talk on V8 Supercars

    Havn't missed a race at Barbagello Raceway in 5 years, we get a box right on Cat Corner.
    Went to the F1 GP at Albert Park last year, again the V8's rock there, pity my ticket only gained me limited access.

    Hope the Mighty Holdens regain the title this year :cool:

    I WANNA GO TO BATHURST!!!. I'll probably go to Pukekohe instead and watch Greg Murphy win again.

    It will be a real Lottery in Shanghai as no one has raced there.

    There isn't going to be two easter creek races this year, instead they're going to shanghai for the last round.

    i havent seen any race-car paintjobs yet. cant wait though. again this year, i will be attendending both queensland races, at willowbank and surfers paradise. they both rule as at willow you can see the whole track. and at indy, its just awesome.

    my tip, too close to call. but go MIGHTY AMBROSE, or infact anyone who drives a ford.(except for david thexton, he can just bugger off)

    It's gonna be 1 Holden that wins. That Holden is gonna be Kmart Racing Team #51 Greg Murphy. You know what? He's gonna win Bathurst again too.
     
  23. Tosk

    Victoria, Australia

    I would even put money on that :)
     
  24. millencolin

    what will be good to see is if murph can produce a lap like he did last year. When i saw that lap, me being a ford fan, i knew i was in the **** this weekend. i doubt he can produce the same pace

    He said that he missed a gear too
     
  26. Tosk

    Murph has always had bad luck, which I think has disguised his abilities. All he needs is no bad luck this year, he had enough last year to cover him for the next few I think...

    That, i'd have to agree with, but I aint gonna barrack for him though :p
