Today’s race has been a lot less lively than yesterday’s.
True, but this in-car of Simona's is living it up.
You said it, she's got her hands full with that thing. That is one loose Nissan.
WAU, get your stuff together. Come now...
Strange that Courtney has had 3 failures for the weekend, while Pye hasn’t had any.
So Golding isn't going to have to come in to get the safety net fixed?
Hey, guess not. That's a first.
SLade might get all three of the next runners.
He must have because he's fallen all the way down to 23rd and he was in front of Simona a few laps ago.
**EDIT** Golding now shows 3 stops.
Awesome move by Slade.
I forgot that it was Fabian in the lead and not Scott lol.
Well done DJRTP, and well done Anton
I'd put Anton up there with Scott, when Scott debuted in the Volvo.
Happy for Anton, he deserves a podium at the very least. Shame no one got past the Kelly train in the end
I'm a bit gutted Scotty couldn't make it 7 from 9, but I'll still take a Shell V-Power 1-2
New game: Get past Rick
New name: Kidney Stone Kelly
I can think of many other descriptions but they're all against the AUP.
Wait, how about Constipation Kelly? After all, he is a turd.
Being a Nissan lad I'm really happy they're showing promise! Was rooting for Heimgartener yesterday, and now we had that battle in the mid pack. Slowly they're getting more competitive again!
I've never been a brand loyalist. I've always followed drivers instead of badges.
Yeah so can I, but my thinking was, as in 'hard to pass', more of a follow on to the post above mine.
Edit: A fair assessment by RD. https://www.speedcafe.com/2019/04/15/dane-whincup-garage-needs-to-take-a-long-hard-look-at-itself/
And I think this part from RD is telling from what I've read about linear springs:
“That side of the garage needs a long hard look at itself. We spent too much time chasing gold when gold wasn’t achievable for anyone apart from one team this weekend.''
They might have to stop chasing that perfect feel they used to get with trap springs, because apparently it's unobtainable according to most other teams. DJRTP have the best compromise in suspension settings now.
I like how even Rick acknowledged other drivers don't like to be behind him. Well, hope they give the Altima a good send off, if it is to be that car's last year(probably not, if Todd has his way).
The two during yesterday's race were certainly weird. Would have thought that they would have rectified the issue after Saturday but apparently not.
Yeah, I hope so too, but I think Todd has the right idea. I don't think there's much point in switching manufacturer until Gen3 comes out from a cost perspective.
And now you've got me feeling all nostalgic thinking about how much I miss seeing the Volvo and Merc on track. It's going to be a shame to see the Altima go too , but at least it will still be around in S2 for a while.
I'd bet a decent amount of money on Courtney's two blowouts yesterday being related to when he ran into Hazelwood.
That's possible. Commentators mentioned possible camber tuning, but that right front geometry could have been further blown out. Plus, the guard wasn't repaired 100% during that initial stop for a new tyre.
Yeah, don't get me started on the S60 and E63 stuff. Damn shame.
I wouldn't be to quick with you're wallet . Turns out they thought it was debris on Saturday so they may not have changed the car much for Sunday.
If that's the case & it is set-up related, the tyres that eventually blew on Sunday would've lasted roughly the same distance as the single tyre that popped on Saturday.
I don't have the numbers so I can't help there.
Courtney also said ''We had a tyre drama at Tassie as well, so something has carried over.'' and that makes me wonder if it is really setup related, because if so, why doesn't it happen to Scott Pye? They could be running different settings I suppose, but three blowouts in exactly the same spot is more than just coincidence I feel. I think we'll just have to wait and see if they reveal the cause.
BJR to field a wildcard entry for Blanchard in Perth.
Wow. I miss the E63 and S60.
