Thanks Mike! Nice to finally have a decent weekend.
I scored a win in Race 3, too, Kye.  I am not mentioning that I was dead last in Race 1, though.  Me and the cats celebrated our win in the backyard grilling pucks (hamburgers). 

Using Kingsford Charcoal, of course.

Thanks for the livery, Helix.  It worked.

Getting us all back together here..... we will be making a trip across the Tasman Sea to Pukekohe this weekend.  Could be the last race there.  Of course, it could have been the last race at Sandown.  We thought the last race in Adelade was run and it came BACK, so who knows WHAT the future holds.  All I do know is we will be there in NZ this weekend.

I have already made a change for the round.  Feel free to do so also, gents.

As much as I love the track, it pretty much cost me the 2017 championship and it definitely hasn't helped me this year either.

Thanks for the support.  My boys stayed off of the fences and out of the wall this round.   :)

Looking ahead to Bathurst, the points scoring/tally will differ from the previous rounds.  The most points any Supercars team can score will be 300.  Remember, this will be a one race round.


For V8CFL scoring, cutting and pasting from the rules:

Each race will be scored for points. For non-enduro rounds Group A through C cars (six cars) count for points. Groups D1 & D2 will not.

For Bathurst, all eleven cars (Groups A - D2) will be scored.



Just a heads-up as to what we are looking at come race day.

For the sake of argument and the way the rules have been drawn up for 2022, it will not be allowed to "write-in" a car/team for Bathurst in either Group D1 or D2.  This means teams like Stanaway/Murphy, Chahda/Robotham, etc., cannot be added to your roster.


As for tiebreakers, we will use the same formula for Bathurst.  From the rules:

All ties will be broken using the following formula:

1) Highest finishing first chosen Group D1 car (points-wise) in race.

2) If tied, highest finishing second chosen Group D1 car (points-wise) in race.

3) If the applicable Group D1 cars do NOT break the tie (cars in the same order), Group D2 cars will be used in the same manner.

4) If tied after both Group D1 and D2 (both groups identical and in the same order) the highest finishing car in Groups A, B, or C will break the tie.


So your Group D cars will eb doing "double duty" this round.  Especially D1.

The gap has grown slightly, Hopefully I can keep it growing too  ;D

Anything can happen at the upcoming rounds though..

I think my going up the ladder had more to do with other teams getting blasted with goose eggs due to big shunts - like Anton's Will Brown's, and Courtney's.  I was lucky enough to avoid them.  But that is racing.

For Bathurst, the Group Ds will be scored.  D2 only had four cars to choose from and each team has three of them.  That is pretty watered down.  But D1 has five cars and you only choose two.  That will be the group to watch.  Everyone might want to give a long eye to Group D1 this round, AND you have to factor in who are the co-drivers.
