Yeah COG had nothing to do with that roll or the shock flying.

Was watching an old GC Indycar/supercar round and speed and anger of the cars these days would of been good on the old long circuit. A few more turns would be great, shame a lot of people abandoned the round once Indy pulled the pin

Would it be possible to revert to the original track layout now?

Not the exact layout, no - the light rail prevents that being possible.

Whether relevant or not, the GoG point was just that, a point, an observation. As I replied, all factors need to be considered when talking safety.

As others have questioned changing of the track, the radius on the chicanes may need reviewing, so the impact is more blunt and more forgiving.

I wouldnít change a thing, itís a street circuit and accidents like this are a part of that. The shock is one of them rare times a part has made its way outside of the track. Big deal, why do we have to add more bubble wrap to society every time something happens?

Cars havenít outgrown the place, people are simply pushing the cars harder then ever before. Maybe the Mustang is just not as good on tight windy street circuits as it is on the fast flowing European style circuits.

Fair point troy01505. Don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating bubble wrapping society, I believe there's too much of that already. You make reference to the Stang possibly not being as good on the twisty bits, hence my reference to the change to it's CoG, in my original post. Just a point of reference to consider and discuss.

Scotty looked to be over driving all weekend which is out of character.

Chaz mucked up his braking. I think youíll find he braked early if anything.

Less aero next year will help with the speeds

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.

Itís very hard to make a car extremally good for both types of circuits but kudos to Scotty because thatís the car at its worst it is still a ****ing good car.

Maybe possible the cars ran a lot stiffer this year to as kerbs were throwing cars across the road at times.
