Repco Supercars Championship / Fabs - GC Storms....
December 28, 2023, 05:04:50 PM

while this is a shallow link I got a laugh, not because Fabs and his family have lost their house (thankfully all ok for them) but for what is currently showing as the first comment...

some folk have long memories it seems

Fabs will be ok, he is careful of debris

Repco Supercars Championship / Adelaide 500 Spoliers
November 24, 2023, 09:46:14 AM

Not sure what happened to the first thread? Seems to have disappeared somewhere.

A tad moist yesterday but drying track for the day so far today.

Big crash in the utes yesterday... esp the crash into t8 wall and then a secondary crash for the same ute at t9 when he got collected. the vision was a bit inconclusive as to what happened... did the 2nd car lock up and just slide into him? the little vision that they did play the ute seemed to almost go over sideways when it got t-boned!
Looks like coverage starts just after 9 for the supports

First session just after 10

Dilano van 't Hoff got t-boned at high speed (similar to Antoine Hubert suffered some years back) and has passed.

The weather was shocking and it is being argued they shouldn't have been racing due to such poor visibility. Arguments won't bring him back though.

Rip Dilano.

(There is video out there of the crash but it is hard to watch someone die so violently. If you feel you want to see it google is your friend)

Just passing on a message from Mike. He is having some issues logging in to the new V8C but will be back ASAP!

Not going to share the video link... it is pretty brutal.

Car got sideways and crossed the track in the air hitting the top of the armco, then over it, hitting a camera tower (camera guy in hospital with 'light injuries') and then took out a pole... car is demolished and he sadly passed in the incident.

Condolences to his family and hopefully the camera person makes a full recovery.

welcome to 2023 :'(

reckon we'd all know the name, tough way for the motorsport community to start the year.

look after yourselves folks
Day is already half done and no posts... are we all just over the year?

I think there is some tv coming for those who pay but it just feels strangely quiet considering the fanfare that Adelaide was building toward.
TA2 / Holy crap!!

Thankful to hear both in the car are ok due to the great work of bystanders... but check out the last picture!

There is nothing left of the McLaren at all!!!

Hopefully we hear good news on Chris as he recovers though he will obviously miss out on the round this weekend.
Who's planning on heading to the track?

Looks like we'll get some wet at some point over the weekend. Been pretty average weatherwise this week. If you do park/view be careful or you'll need a tow out!

I'll be at t9 most of the 3 days if anyone wants to catch up.

Who's heading up this weekend?

I'll be there working my butt off. Official photographer for the 3 car Suzuki team which will be a blast!

Also will be shooting for the odd competitor here and there as well as looking after my HQ/Group N Vic guys.

If you see the dreads through the day yell out :)
Anyone from V8C up there? Doing the double?

Will be interesting for the support categories if they have serious issues on weekend 1 as to how they get the necessary repairs done for weekend 2 with such a tight turnaround.
