Gotta love how someone sitting in front of a computer has the hide to give an opinion on whether a V8 Supercar driver/champion has enough guts/balls to do anything ?

V8 Central , where some bogans let the result of a motor race control their life , where manufacturer bias is out of control and where 1 moderator has absolutely no idea what to do to fix the problem of forum members turning V8 Central into shyte because of it.

I reckon Whincup is getting bored in this series and wants a new challenge in his motorsport career.
Ill put it out there as well and say he is heading to the US.

Couldn't agree more LG. Ambrose was my natural arch enemy before he left Australia but now has my unconditional support. Heaven forbid I even quite like the guy now

I hate this comment. Do you know what everyone on this forum is involved in? We all have decisions in life that take guts to make that decision - some choose to take that head on, some choose to hide from it - and this happens in any field of employment.

Whincup has a high-profile job where a lot of people know what he does, and a by-product of that is scrutiny and adulation from fans of differing backgrounds. A forum is a mechanism for these people to put up their opinion. People have varying levels of articulation, but the message is often still the same.

So next time you post this sort of comment, belittling another member for having an opinion about a driver, think - do I know this person, what they do and where they are from. If you check the members area, you may find the backstory to A LOT of members and your opinion will change.

A key rule for life is, no matter who a person is, whether they are the CEO of a large corporation or a street cleaner, everyone deserves the same respect and everyone deserves a voice and opinion. It is shallow and belittling to take that away from someone through pure ignorance.

McLaughlin later described the final corner: "I don't know what happened there. I just plucked it in first, gave it some jandal and **** yeah!"

Should definately go to the NASCAR truck series to get him started, get Marcos to hold his hand for a while to give him a jump start then when he's ready for the main game, maybe Marcos will be in a position to run an all Aussie team.

JW would be wasted on ovals, would rather see him in a road course series.

To be honest it took Ambrose 7 years to get up the front in NASCAR ovals, and he had oversaes experiance as well.

i too hope he has a go at nascar be interesting to see how he goes.

you said that name, i sense this is going to turn into 10 pages of blue flames





of course it is going to when he makes such imature comments like that.



Yet its ok for Ambros fans to **** on about how great Ambros was and that hes going to come back and instantly show every one up?

Go eat a dick.

As it seems to be a personal announcement and not a team announcement, my gut feeling is Nascar. And if it is this, the series and especially 888 and Holden will be much the poorer for it. On the bright side, after about a year or two developing and crafting his skills over there in truck and nationwide, I'm looking forward to him taking on and beating Ambrose in Sprint Cup

So by the poster saying that JW doesn't have the balls , that is giving everyone respect is it ?
Does the poster know JW to be able to make that statement ?
Your post doesn't change a thing with me, so move on.

IIRC Marcos made his announcement after winning the Clipsal 500.



I think you are right, and it looked like this




I am blue as they come, but Whincup is a good driver, and he has had pretty much the best car under him for a few years, he is probably getting bored, or wanting to leave while he is at the top of this/his game.
So when Holden are getting their asses kicked in the years to come, all the Holden fans can cry for Whincup to come back, like my Ford bretheren do to the holy Marcos Ambrose. lol

Beat me to it, Who knows Whincup and Ambrose could have been talking about this for a while now. Ambrose never had another Aussie driver to help him out so this may be the push or the leg up Whincup needed.

Not a Whincup fan and never really watched Nascar until Ambrose had a crack but would support him 100% if he decided to take the plunge.

Good point but I doubt it. I see Monster giving him a major helping out in the transition to racing over there...
