Race weekend again guys, will Jamie dominate again? Will Scotty choke again...will Chaz's tyres suffer spontaneous combustion?- who's your pick?

Pete throws $5k into the mix to spice it up!https://www.speedcafe.com/2020/09/04/adderton-puts-up-5000-hard-racer-prize-for-supercars/ Edit- just seen that Rusty and PM are the judges! Why not just give SVG the cash now?

Soft tyres this weekend. I did a little research this time before asking.

https://www.speedcafe.com/2020/08/14/supercars-confirms-tyre-compound-for-townsville-double/

You know, when you look at motorsport across the board these days, this is my best bang for the buck. F1, although predictable, is still entertaining, but does not carry the "wild card" aspect that Supercars does. IndyCar was really good last round at Gateway on the oval (recommend it) but still a tad behind Supercars. NASCAR is not even in the same league with respect to holding my attention.

Just a little opinion from over on this side of the planet....

Back on topic, though, I think it will be VERY INTERESTING to see if Scotty and DJRTP can make the adjustments to run with J-Dub this weekend. AND, can SVG get his straight line speed anomaly figured out?

I would like to see Frosty outleg Pye, too, just to keep the former away from high places that by jumping could end it all.

Keen to see what improvements teams will make and who will trip over themselves looking for speed. And hopefully Fabs can pick himself up enough so DJRTP are back on top in the teams.

Mike, if you think F1 is entertaining I dare you to watch MotoGP. It will blow your socks off with more action in 1 race than F1 has in a season.

Penske will make the most improvement. It showed week to week at Darwin.
Also don't see Scott making the same mistakes twice - Fabs on the other hand...

If J-Dub wants a proper crack at the title without needing a hail mary at Bathurst, he has to knock Scott off this weekend.

But Skaifeman, letís not forget, Scotty is a kiwi, if you look at decades of rugby, Scotty in 2017, SVG most years and Bathurst every year.... kiwis choke under pressure!

These alleged incidents are erased from our memory.

They choke on their coffee when they relate all their victories to Ozzies who can't handle that their drivers and rugby team sucks.

Long live King Gentleman Jim, best of the best!

I use to think in that version of the haka, where the AB drew their fingers across their throats they were mimicking violence.....then I figured out, they were just pointing out their choke line!

Yep he certainly buried it into those tyres.

I notice that the Virgin Aus branding is all gone from the microphones and has been replaced by Repco.

Scotty is a qualifying freak. To pull two tenths when the rest of the top five is separated by hundredths is insane.

This is the fifth time that he has achieved ten pole positions in a single season, and the fourth season in a row. This mark has only ever been achieved nine times in total.

Gover refers to the 2021 championship here as the "Repco Supercars Series" - I wonder if this wasn't just a slip of the pen.
