Who is going, who is going to win, does anyone care if SVG wins?

I'm just happy you spelt spoilers correctly  ;D
If you don’t like my comment, ignore it. If you don’t know how to ignore it, message me and I will be only too happy to demonstrate how.

Would have been nice to go but funds are tight and I didn't have creds so it would have cost me a bundle that I couldn't afford.

I'm expecting the Shell cars to win here. They were bloody fast here last year (especially ADP) and they have the wind in the sails right now.

SVG will be hard to top, but hoping Camo and the beast of a 6 Stang can jag a win....

Another boring race meeting, according to Channel 7 and Supercars.

A 1 hour broadcast from 8.30 to 9.30 each day, but being Channel 7, it will probably start late.

That's 20 minutes of advertising, heaps of talking heads and replays, with about 25 to 30 minutes of highlights, after they cut out the boring bits. :( ::)

From the ridiculous to the sublime:

    Friday:     08:40am - 05:00pm
    Saturday: 07:35am - 06:30pm
    Sunday:   08:00am - 04:45pm

That's over 28 hours. I'll record about 7-8 hours to view later, zap through the ads and talking heads, and enjoy about 4-5 hours of it.

Just fantastic. To beat Courtney and Waters in the same car (along with the rest of the field!), what the hell! Congratulations.

When was the last time we had a wildcard (privateer) on pole, in a blank car!

Unbelievable!
Good on him.
The first lap could be very interesting.

That's really impressive.  He may struggle with the intensity of the race at this level but clearly he has the raw speed and the rest will come with experience.

I'd imagine that SVG will give him the elbows, and Waters didn't seem too stoked about being behind either.
Good luck to the young man, will be interesting to watch.



I reckon Best jumped the start. He creeped a few times and looked to be moving when the lights went green.
...He's been cleared, very close.
