If Richards didn't beat Skaife I would be surprised. Skaife has had 2 full seasons out of a race car, Richards has come straight from FPR to here. If anything Richards should've wiped the wall with Skaife but could only manage to beat him by 1-2 positions each race.

Regarding the wrong endurance driver, who's the current Bathurst Champions? I certainly don't see Richards name there.




Holden 2012 Champions, Thanks Simon, you were right all along

What's with the continual bashing of Richo. He beat Skaife fair and square in 3 out of 3 races so I guess this just proves he is a better Porsche driver than Skaife. Suck it up.

I'd put it out there that it would be fairer to say it is around the other way undertaker... but that would depend on how you want to look at it of course.

Sure Richo beat Skaife in a Porsche... but how does that effect Supercar performances... Skaife has beaten Richo in Supercars how many times again???

Not even really sure why this is still in Supercars actually.

Yea, Viper, but the thread was about Porsches not Supercars, so my comment about Richo being a better driver than Skaife still stands, when racing Porsches.

I agree with you that this thread should have been moved earlier.

one race weekend does not make a 'better driver'.. and finishing 1 spot in front of Mark is hardly representative of being called a 'better driver', nor a worse one..

Steve drove well to finish p3 so i can give him credit for that... but Mark beat him in quali... from what i heard Mark had a faster lap time in r3 than Steve... they were pretty much equals over the weekend i would reckon... from what i saw Mark made 1 small mistake in R1 (when he hit the turf that let Steve get by) and Steve kept it clean enough that Mark couldn't return..

so playing the advocate i could say Mark 1. out quali'd and 2. faster lap vs Steve 1. 1 position higher in finishing...

the whole argument tho is wasting all of our time because we won't get to see a season long fight between the 2 to prove either of our thoughts.

Yea I know, but who gives a **** about qualifying times, they don't make **** all difference to a race result, and that race result was 3 nil to Richo.

LOL mate you didn't watch last years race did ya?
I think if you watched it you will find last years winners say Skaife/Lowndes not Richards.
