With the Saturday races at SuperSprint [now Super400] events growing from 120km to 200km, the Albert Park races will be the only ones all season where pitstops are purely tyre changes.


Teams have 16 hards and 16 softs to use across the weekend, with softs compulsory for qualifying. Two pre-marked sets are also allowed for practice.

I like how the ARG run classes are listed as "support categories".

Good to see him get a seat, pity it won't be a fast one.

It's good to see they've made the races a bit longer.

Though they're still too short and the lack of practice/qualifying time is brutal. Shouldn't be any points awarded in my opinion.

Looks to be a lot of dust and sand on the track.

Davison's car is obnoxiously yellow. In person it's like highlighter yellow. Definitely stands out.

Better put a spoilers tag on this thread.

The pole time from Q1 was 1.4sec off last years corresponding session.
Starting to see the aero changes now (shocks too).

Better stop spoiling until the OP does it then...

Tickford have qualified ahead of Scotty Mac for three out of four races so far this year... I wonder why?

ZB's have topped every session and taken every pole this year I think too?

Not sure that's spoiling? No names, no actual time figure?

Will Davison is going through something of a revival!

Yeah, though a Mustang has been second more often than not. And 1st/2nd/4th are all Mustangs in the Teams Championship so far.

To me the only thing that's out of order is Scotty Mac's lack of qualifying pace. We've had six qualifying sessions (including the shootouts) and Race 2 was the only time he managed to set a good lap time (about 4 hundredths slower than pole position).

It's already very hard to see anybody other than a T8 ZB winning the series this year, but with what Cam and Wilbur are doing in those Tickford cars.....you really wonder what Chaz has walked away from?

It looks to me that Cam and Will are just doing their thing while showing that the parity for this year looks pretty right, while Chaz also is doing his thing while he and Adam deB drag the WAU car further up the grid.
