Looking back, we haven't had someone rise this quickly to Championship winning material for 20 years.
Whincup took 5 seasons to win his first.
Back to 2003, Ambrose won his first title in 3 seasons. Kostecki is about to match that.
'The Kid' Lowndes obvoiusly had the dream start with a win in his first full-time season. And the early days of the ATCC startup obviously saw multiple winners on their first try - McKay, Pitt, Jane.
Gets harder to track beyond that as entrants would only attend certain races throughout the year, a 'full-time' season wasn't really a thing.
Is Kostecki going to be a mainstay at the top? Despite the season we've had, Erebus have beaten 888 and SVG on merit.
Do we see Erebus keeping 888 down ala Penske?
