    Nah, he has a completely spare chassis apparently. But it wouldn't surprise me if they did that, if it came to it. Owen is there just for the sake of getting Team Points.

    Well, hopefully that's out of his system now and he can get on with winning that championship.

    So Winterbottom just slapped Ingall on the arse. You could say Winterbottom is laid back. :lol:

    EDIT- Pither just absolutely collected that tyre bundle. Could've been a lot worse...

    Another "impressive" display by Pither.

    Just saw a replay. That was wild but yeah, could have been a hell of a lot worse. :crazy:

    McAdams in the Dunlop Series Qualy just then. :eek: I have never seen a car get that high up on two wheels. If it wasn't for that wall, he would've rolled it.

    Apologies for the double post, but congratulations Mark Winterbottom for winning the 2015 V8 Supercars Championship.

    Wow, Frosty P1 and Lowndes last for the first race.

    Hard hit by Moffat at the end there, wonder if that car can get back out for the next session...

    Well, barring what would be the biggest disaster in V8SC history, Winterbottom has this in the bag. All he has to do is cruise. Lowndes needs to win every race and hope SVG punts Winterbottom off at the first corner of the first race.

    EDIT- Owens plucks the front left of his Ford, Bright puts it into the wall, McLaughlin nearly hits him as he also finds the wall.

    Now, they must change at least two tyres in a pit stop. Should have done that last round.

    Whincup did come flying down to the apex from way outside.

    Owen blocking Lowndes.....not cool.

    Gotta say that Penrite Erebus looks great, hopefully they keep that livery

    Let's not forget how far up Moffat came from to hit Whincup square in the door. I don't think you can put blame on Whincup, let alone anyone given how chaotic that corner is every year.

    I'm no expert, but it was pretty clear to me.
    Official stream, and then maybe others that can't be posted here.

    Moffat just couldn't pull the car up in time. There's no way that is Whincup's fault. I hate Whincup as much as the next guy, but you can't blame him for Moffat spearing into his side door.

    Is Superview quality awful for anyone else, or just me? It's 360p at best.

    Moffat had a dive under Bright and had it whoa'd up just fine. He turned into the corner and then Whincup came diving down to the apex from way outside. He wasn't bright enough to think that just maybe there might be cars down there with several others around. I saw the replay, and that's what I saw.
    It's not terrible for me.

    Hopefully Penrite stay as title sponsor for Erebus. They have some good looking liveries, although I doubt they would put a 90th anniversary livery in their 91st year.

    Good to see Bright on the podium. Nice work by the BJR guys.
