Do you mean like the 888 stuffup in their pit stop effectively handed the win back to McLaughlin ?

In terms of stuffups DJRTPs was way less of a stuffup than t8s.

DJRTP may have lost track position, but they did put in more fuel, meaning less time at next stop. Maybe lost 2 seconds at that stop, in theory gained 2 seconds next stop.

Given gizzys pace he was probably going to pass Scotty anyway, so really no harm.

T8 on the other hand with the underfilling consigned SVG to another trip thru the pits, around 25 seconds to complete. Cost him a win, and ultimately a DNF and no points. Great drive from Giz but one cant help but wonder if it contributed to the suspension failure or whether it was going to happen anyway.

If you don't know how to ignore a posting, complain to me and I will be only too happy to demonstrate...

Yes,m I was watching the race. Both teams stuffed up, one much, much worse. But if neither had made errors, it would likely have been Scott 1st and Giz 2nd.

2020 might be 2018 all over again. Mustang not quite up to the Commondore pace like Falcon before it.

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.

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

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