    They took 32 cars to Pukekohe for years, what's changed? Are teams taking more gear now (in terms of tools, pitlane equipment, spares etc)?

    Or am I remembering wrong - did they used to go by sea?

      Cost goes up, available sponsorship revenue goes down.

      As for Super2 joining the big boys; sure they've got cars that are similar in spec, but they haven't got the budgets or resources to do it properly. They'd still need to rent/buy a couple of Xtrac transaxles, a couple of sets of the current control dampers, among other things. Super2 teams have all basically thrown the towel in for the year. They've spent all their budgets just getting through the quarentine mess.

      Look at the GRM effort this year; the only person that benefitted from it was Garry Rogers himself (let's be real here. He's currently got 9 TCR cars at $200K+ea, burning a hole in his pocket, not to mention a dozen or so S5000 cars). The car was woefully off the pace, and was probably a bucket of bolts using up surplus parts. Both drivers would have been better off finishing their Super2 seasons off properly, and shoring up next year's budgets.

          Umm... except that she can't really. Multiple sentences munged into one being the main culprit. Not terrible (spelling etc ok) but poor punctuation. Actually kind of hard to read in places.

            She was never much of a talker.

            Every interview was the same. Just word salad.

              Yeah wasn't saying they were good sentences, just glad it wasn't bogan phonetic misspelled shit.

                What's everyone's thoughts on the coverage? I must say I'm really over Neil Crompton and Mark Larkham. I don't watch V8s much anymore but when I do they are continually talking about the same crap.

                There was one part yesterday where Mark was standing near turn 1 talking about how smooth everyone is with the throttle application, I mean really??

                Maybe it's because they've been doing it so long but it's time to give someone else a go.

                    Yeah, I'm not sure. I guess I'm just sick of the same thing, said the same way every time the V8s are on.

                      Exactly this when I turned it on yesterday.

                        Chad Neylon and Matt Naulty are good, them with Neil as special comments rather than as the main commentator would be great.

                            Cunts love to whinge about Supercars. Whether it’s here or FB or whatever, people complain about the cars, the drivers, the racing, the teams and their owners, the tv coverage, which tracks they race at. Fucking hell.
