Did 2009 with BRM and finished 6th despite missing a couple of rounds due to his Euro testing/race committments

With a brand new team to the category that's a pretty good effort

He didn't impress me too much in the race and definitely not in the qualifying races (where did he finish again). I think for sure he has a future but the raps on him from the weekend shouldn't be as great as some are making them out to be given the circumstances of his stint in the race.





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 have now had a chance to re-assess Stanaway as a driver and I have included Gold Coast as well for further proof of his abilities and I am happy with my original assessment.

Well said - sums up the hypocrisy of LG and the fordies -

Shame we didn't really get to see Stanaway have a run at the front due to Pither's poor qualifying. He was very fast generally, even despite his error in the race today. Much faster than Pither in the race at Bathurst which was impressive.

We're all here, we're the Bathurst boys; and you can't hear Richo above the noise...

I'd like to see him full time at SBR...or maybe they should split the drivers for the year based around Stanaway's WEC commitments? Put Pither in when he can't be there, then they pair up for Enduro's.

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!"

Does the SBR entry exist without the Pither/Ice Break money on a full-time basis?

That's a great question.

So much criticism of Pither this season despite being his first full time. Why?

Stanaway was impressive in my opinion. Even more impressive than his speed was his ability to admit when he made a mistake and not try and blame others. I look forward to seeinghim become a more permanent member of the circus.

I thought he was very good. Hardly surprising seeing his cv though

RIP05

_Mholden

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

Honestly, I think Matt Campbell was the most impressive driver! To see Campbell, in a "lowly" Nissan (not exactly a top competitive proposition) harassing the Volvo and even later overtaking Dumbrell in the Red Bull car, whilst boldly seeking to gain back the lap, was most impressive. A star of the future IMO.

I was super impressed with Stanaway, a champion of the future for sure. He did an awesome Job, albeit with a few mistakes, and that's not surprising when it's the guys first time in a Supercars at all 3 tracks.

New Commodore Hey! So you used your own money? Would you like to buy a used bridge?

"The only thing that interests me is V8 Supercars so that is the only thing on the radar," Stanaway told herald.co.nz. "I am not planning on going back to Europe."

Is partnering Cam Waters in the enduros this year. Wants a full time drive in a competitive team next year. The best available seat is probably the PRA Mega car. Perhaps a BJR car, Moffats ride or a Kelly retires.

The Supercar field is already well stacked with aliens.

Realistically, if Stanaway wants to run Supercars full time, he will need to provide substantial dollars to get a seat.

All of the seats listed above already have a queue of drivers waiting in line, and already racing Supercar2 and enduros and with personal sponsors.

Later:
Speedcafe is reporting it too.

While Stanaway has impressed in Supercars, notably last season with his drive in tricky wet conditions at Sandown alongside Chris Pither, securing a competitive full-time seat will provide a challenge.
The Tauranga driver was linked to a seat at Super Black Racing before the project ended.
“The tough thing is I do want to be in a competitive car. I don’t want to take a drive in a car too far down the grid,” he added.
”That limits the options a lot but that’s what I will be trying to do.
“It depends whether or not (Prodrive) would be able to make it work.
“I’m not sure what their plan is for next year so I will have to talk to them about that.”
