Stupid was calling for parity this time last year.

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

Have you read his posts?

The bias in here clouds any common sense. We are dealing with genuine morons.

Outright parity is best represented by qualifying where cars are at their peak performance, the race has too many other variables to be considered an accurate metric.

But by all means continue to complain every time you don't get your way, it's just sad that you can't enjoy a race without feeling like a victim. Really pathetic.

Lets face it 888 clean sweep if not for some stuff ups
Whincup race 1 and giz race 2 simply drove away

Unless djr ( Tickford not up to it ever ) and Scottie can find .3 to .4 seconds per lap ( fabs not up to it ) during the race then why bother watching

Yeah that 0.04 gap to the Holdens is killing them!



I don't know about the parity thing yet but I did notice that the 888 Commodores were quite untouchable in the open.

Oh well then it must be true, Holen given the unfair advantage again!



Your comprehension skills need improving if that is your take on what I wrote...

What BS. One lap has the most variables. A missed apex, gear, grip... Average lap speed is a better indicator. Not to mention that it's the races where they hand out the silverware and counts towards the championship.

I haven't complained, I haven't asked to get my way. I enjoyed this weekends racing. I was simply putting down my thoughts on the year ahead from what I observed and was attacked because you're too lazy to read what I actually post.

Ford won in 2018, so why would I use that to play the victim?

Take a chill pill and have a lie down.

What do you mean, Err, why? During a ******* race he's crapping on about the usual boring **** he does. He then tries to be "entertaining" with some **** souvlakis and drink, or whatever the **** it was. How stupid can you be?

Who TF finds his **** interesting? Are the supercars demographic inbreds who dropped out at year 10? NO ******* wonder Holden have withdrawn Holden from Australia.

Gets way too enthusiastic about little things... I wish they'd let Crompo explain everything


Crompo is boring, and uses 20 words when 3 will do.

Crompoland, supercarsland, Adelaideland, while modulating the throttle. Neiland is just more eloquent than the other idiots on the coverage.

The gap last year was 0.01 and the Reds were calling for blood.


2019
Shootout 1 gap to Holden: 0.3261
Shootout 2 gap to Holden: 0.2637

2020:
Shootout 1 gap to Ford: 0.0138
Shootout 2 gap to Ford: 0.0383

RIP05

_Mholden

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

Loved how when Anton crashed here last year, Barry gave him a very public spray. When Dave crashes into and takes out his teammate it's just "oh well stuff happens". Pretty clear who the favourite child is.

And yes, child is the best adjective to describe him.

Thanks roland, dutto and triple eight racing for making sure the right car won today!


Anton's face in the pit lane interview was priceless, there's definitely some tension with reynolds. Surely he would leave for a better deal at DJRTP in the future.

The commentary from skaife and crompton was sickening, triple eight isn't the only team in the race, the utter lovefest and dribble over everything shane did while driving today was very hard on the ears.

When he had problems they wouldn't stop carrying on about it and kept showing his broken down race car in multiple replays.

Scott got hardly any screen time during the race, even when he was coming first, but hey it's a ford so you know the drill.




Ford and djr penske win back to back-championships, suck it up supercars.

On that last point, we hardly saw Whincup yesterday either. When the leader checks out, it's hard to keep showing it.

BUT, Skaife and Crompton missed SVG calling back to his team saying that he thought he broke a shot. It was on the coverage while Skaife was gasbagging and they missed it. Then they spent 5mins trying to work it all out.

Mouth Breeders. Looks like you need to keep your mates appendage out of your mouth.
We've seen the real pace of the Opel today and even McLaughlin had no answer for it.

Considering that Adelaide is traditionally a strong circuit for Triple Eight and that McLaughlin never really looked comfortable over the weekend, I'd reserve judgment on parity until the Grand Prix. Tickford usually struggle at Adelaide but Davison and Waters were matching McLaughlin and Triple Eight on qualifying speed.

Remember when the VF runners dominated Adelaide in 2015? Yet Prodrive went on to dominate most of the season.
