Season Final (with spoliers)
« on: December 01, 2022, 11:56:11 AM »
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.

I thought the Repco Supercars Championship action started tomorrow.  But practice 1 is indeed in 3 hours time.

How's the weather?

Been watching clips of Super2 at work.
Weather looks to be getting hotter as the weekend goes on.

Enjoy it!  I just fired up my grill in the driveway tonight.  With the wind chill it is 14°F.

O to be in Turn 9 this weekend!   ;D

I think many are simply over the Holden farewells.
They've been dead and gone for a long time...

With the exception of Bathurst do we really need 4 days of racing?
Compress it down to 2 days and then mostly everyone will be able to watch it on the weekend while not at work.

But yes, looking forward to the races.

I hope someone turns up over the next 4 days to watch it. On the few occasions I saw the stands there were very few folk there.

Perhaps they were wandering around or just not bothering coz it was only the Thu but it felt very empty.

Always empty on Thursday... I go on Friday in Perth only because it's better than sitting at home... it's usually pretty dead but then is packed by Sat/Sun.

If they added Thursday I probably wouldn't bother that would be way too much

Maybe Nick Percat again. Although the last time he won he was driving for Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport.

Car liveries aside, it looks to me that there is a new livery for the kerbs.  Were not they blue-yellow-red before?

Hard to see on TV, too, for there were no good shots of the main grandstand, but do they still have the red-blue-red-blue canopy over it?

Like the new Turn 7 wall, too.   :)

Kerbs at first chicane were red, white and black in 2020.

I know it's only a little thing, but I'm glad they haven't painted over the white lines like that have in the past. In the past they have painted over the white lines on corner apexes.

If they're going to run on city streets, the white lines should still be there, so I'm glad they are.

SVG tops the final practice before Qualy tonight. The Tickford cars look quick too.

It's been so easy for SVG this year that he has given himself a challenge for tomorrow. I think he'll back in contention by half-race distance.
