Holden don't exist. The marque was pulled down and packed away two years ago.

I never though Paul Morris was effective as a competitor, but I find it amazing how many good, young racers have been through the Norwell training. It is even more obvious when it rains…..

Think Morris was to hot headed to reach his full potential but he certainly has an eye for talent and has helped some future superstars.

Feeny must be the new Mr Consistent, hopefully the let unleash his inner beast next year.

Yes, however the ZB Commodore racecars are still recognised by the Supercars category as Holdens, and Supercars themselves say Holden have clinched the Manufacturer's Championship.

The Holden marque may have been retired the other year but does not mean the ZBs are not Holdens.

They stopped making Ford Falcons in 2016.  Does that mean Falcon did not win a championship in 2018?

So easy to switch off these days....

Best's pole was the weekend highlight......ZB's are just way, way too strong...

Bathurst will be 25 versus 97.....

That's right, the marque is gone. Therefore it can not compete. I never said the ZB were not Holdens. Supercars has to play up the manufacturers trophy to keep have the Holden troglodytes happy.

And bad comparison with Falcon. Ford still exists, Falcons are still being raced.

It used to be so exciting, SVG versus Scotty was balls to the wall great stuff.....it's all just so just bland and predictable now.....anyways....

Manufacturers (refer Albert's comment) Championship, not Teams Championship.

Glad to see both Andre and Randle avoided serious injuries, testament to the safety of these things, which lately have really proven themselves.
Shame that Mostert knocked Davo off, both had pace to challenge for the podium. Chaz put his hand up afterwards too (it was pretty clear), despite what was otherwise a great drive.

Brodie Kostecki always impresses in the rain - and when you compare that to his cousin over in the fantastic Tickford car...

Jesus Christ, I get sick of listening to Skaife dry-hump SVG's leg, bleating on about how great he is in the rain
