A question for the Adelaide guys - how hard / practical / possible would it be to go back to the 'full' Grand Prix circuit layout?

I don't think I'm alone in believing that the current shorter design really sucks....... money out of Team's pockets...

Or in other words, how many more crashes do they have to have at Turn 8 before something is done? Or before someone is really seriously injured (or worse...) again...
Cheers,

Tony.

There's only two questions:

1. What direction do you go
2. What's the Lap Record?

Once again FPR snatch defeat from the jaws of victory .

Very boring and processional race as wev'e come to expect over the past decade or so .

You know you have a major problem when the racing from a support category that costs around $50,000.00 a year to run is 1,000,000 times better than the supposed main game cars .

Its going to be an all Red year again, :angry: . From yesterdays fastest lap time's , Vodapone where 1 sec quicker than any Ford.

I hope it rains at every race from now on, to even out the fields preformance. A One second advantage is light years ahead of the field.

I doubt, that would be indicative of overall situation.


Fuel lean burn by FPR from first stop.

and

Hicup adding 4 boots and a dash o juice.

Track would have been rubred up nice to set a lap record.

That's pretty harsh Neil.
To come around a corner at about 200 KPH, and find someone basically stopped in the middle of the track, would be a bit of a shock, to say the least. I don't think Smurf had any where to go, let alone stop. It could have been worse.
I doubt very much any one would destroy over half a million in cars, just to take out an opponent deliberatley.

I stand behind what I said . 4 minutes 44 seconds of " Highlights " of which 4 minutes 26 seconds was during the race and which half was smash em up bash em up ( If I want to see that I wll go tothe dunny derby ) and pitstops . So out of just under 2 hours of " Racing " VSA could only manage to come up with just over 2 minutes of " HIGHLIGHTS " . Pass .
The older I get the faster I was .

Dont believe it was deliberate as that would have taken a cognitive though process and we are talking about Murph . As for being unsighted what a load of frogsh1t . That is an open bend with NO restrictions of vision whatsoever . Murph as usual was asleep at the wheel , but like every other time it was everyones fault but his own . If you cannot see an retina burning searingly bright white car from 200 metres away doing 180 KPH less than you you simply have NO place being out there . If this was the Australian excuse making and whinging championship Murph would have been the undefeated champion in every year he has participated . Really feel for Jonathan Webb .

yes looking back on my comment, it was a very radical comment,obviously from the mouth of someone with no such racing experiance as such,,, though I can't fathom why the incedent happened at all,, they were only just given the green light,,,,restarts of anykind do bunch the feild,,,& his own comment "that this was always going to happen."??? (But I guess its easy for a profesional couch racer to pick up on these things)
Truthfully,,,I've never heard of J.Webb till now,,,but I do hope Scaley bring out a Plain white Commodore,,did look regal amongst the heavily liveried feild
