"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".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

It is not all bad news. Russell Ingall gets to keep his win record for another year.

If only they were smart enough to get one race out of the way on Thursday.

EDIT:
Looks like they could have gone ahead but F1 owns all the cameras and operators so the races wouldn't be televised. Sucks all round really.

owns? thought local tv provided the feed and f1 did what it wanted with that... well there ya go.

still no reason it couldn't have gone ahead though. our local guys could have stepped in today and been ready to go tomorrow I would have thought. a 2 day meet would have been workable for the supports with no track time required for the f1 circus (and the obnoxious amount of downtime associated with them)

Not Supercars fault, but what a punk start to the 2020 series, almost forgot it had started 3 weeks ago.

Such crap news. Was seriously keen to watch F1, Supercars, TCR and S5000 this weekend. Sucks so much for people who travelled a long way to make it, now having to find something else to do, assuming it's not shut down...

Nup once one person got done in the paddock thatís it. Gotta nip it in the bud as much as you can

Not since the mid-2000s has that been the case. In Melbourneís case, FOM has done the feed since 2003, the last local TV feed was Channel 9 in 2002, when the Aussie rights went to Ten for 2003 F1 took the filming over

I think Monaco was the last F1 race that did it itself? Nowadays anyway, FOM films all the races.

So far we've been to the zoo and the aquarium and seen so many F1 and Supercars shirts/hats/jumpers etc.

It was to be my first GP experience so I'm really disappointed that it has ended this way. Never even got to see an F1 car on track live. Guess I'll have to wait another year. We had this trip booked for 8 months, I'm sure I can wait another 12...

Jeez, that's tough, and there are thousands just like you. I'm sorry that what should have been a great experience ended that way. Still, it looks like you're being positive, which is the best - probably the only way to handle it. Here's hoping this corona virus pandemic ends soon and things improve for all of us.
