Interesting that it says he is eager to look at options about coming back to this side of the world - I thought I had previously heard that, but was not sure, hence this topic.

The guy was on pace with any of the other co-drivers, in his first V8 race, while driving on slicks in the wet, and he didn't even bin it.

And then Pither basically blew it all in 5 laps.

Quite a few of the top guys binned it.



I thought i heard on inside supercars that he was nearly 3 seconds a lap faster then then any other car during a part of his stint on slicks in the wet. Not sure if it was other cars on slicks or all the co-drivers.



Yea, but bundy said he's no good, so the experts must bow to his superior knowledge.



NOT!





I didn't say he was no good. I said that he shouldn't be being put out to be some messiah based on his weekend's performance, especially as it was one weekend and really about 20% of his time in the race seat. We'll re-visit this after Bathurst.

I was watching it on live time.. There was only 3 cars on soft tyres at the time.. Stanaway, Canto & Cam.. I wasn't watching Cam, so I'm not sure what times he was doing. But Stanaway was slower than Canto. Canto was miles behind & court up to him & was stuck behind him. Then a gap appear between them as they both were trying to pass cars on wets & then Canto started to close the gap again after they passed the slower car. So he wasn't quicker than Canto on the same tyres.. However, he didn't put it into the field like Canto did!!

To me it isn't about Stanaway being faster than Canto - let's keep in mind that Dean has been doing this for more than 15 years.

I think the point is that Stanaway was very, very impressive in his first outing in a supercar, and his first outing in wet weather. Not many guys show that much raw speed and car control their first time in the car.

Yeah he's pretty good alright, if he wants to join v8s someone will make room! As for Pither blowing it... 27GV if Pither won the race he still would of blowen it in your eyes...



So tell me how dropping from about 3rd to 17th isn't blowing it?

To put it in perspective, he finished behind Slade, who was only that far back because of a penalty.

If there was a choice between Pither, Le Brocq and Stanaway for the 4th PRA seat, I know who I'd want the least.

I didnt say he didn't blow it? Just said it wouldn't of mattered what CP done it would have ment he blew it to you... Just having him in the series disgusts you don't it... Even tho there's Moffat, waters, Blanchard, wood, percat, heimgater behind him in the championship...

Stanaway did car 111's fastest lap in the race. His fastest lap was the 4th fastest of all the co-drivers. Canto did car 1's fastest, but was not as quick as Stanaway's fastest. Stanaway did 12 laps in the 1.10's. Pither did 2 in the 1.10's. Canto did 13 laps in the 1.10's. Canto's laps were pretty consistent though. The average of his best 12 were better than the average of Stanaway's so he was catching more laps than he was dropping back. Traffic may have played a part in all laps. Ingall did not get into the 10's at all by the way.
Stanaway's fastest lap was the 11th quickest on the day. So better than more than half of the full time drivers.
And as far as I saw, never once made an error.

With so little experience in these cars - these stats tell me after one weekend it's safe to say he's very talented.

Given he has a works drive with Aston Martin at world championship level, i think it goes without saying he is very talented

I'd hardly be claiming him as a Supercar star based on one stint when he was on the right tyres and 95% of the rest of the field weren't thought...

Wow, that's embarrassing for Pither.. No wonder the car went backwards when he got in.

I don't think that's the claim at all...but not many show that much promise first time out.

I wouldn't say it is embarrassing. With the mixed conditions across the race, I don't think comparison of lap times is a great indicator of performance between drivers in the same car. Premat, Webb, Wall, Richards, Perkins, D'Alberto, Walsh, David Russell and Le Brocq also did the fastest race laps for their cars (although they have all driven these cars before). Plus, we don't really know how each car's performance varied throughout the race; it may not have been just down to the driver.

I don't remember him in Formula Ford. When was he in there? I do however remember Mitch Evans in Formula Ford, but that's another story.
