    He mustn't have been that good, maybe? LOL
    Haha my thoughts exactly...I have watched almost every race since the early 90's and didnt recognise the name at all, but then looking at his photo rang a bell....I think?

    I think that the issue is NZ didnt get the full broadcasts back then, so I doubt I would have seen the utes and Konica lights.

    His credentials show he can clearly steer pretty well though

      Probably better known for his days in IP in the 808 wagon.

        Yep I remember him mainly from his IP days, mainly known for being very quick but hard on the car and tyres from memory. I think that lack of mechanical sympathy may have impacted the success of his V8 Supercar career too.

          I remember watching him flogging that wagon around Oran Park and every few laps he clipped the wall with the right rear quarter coming sideways out of the final corner. That thing was quick.

              I think that is the best idea given what we are working with currently.

              Sure, it would be nice to have 5 different races to end the year, but the logistics of pulling that off, without anymore covid issues affecting plans is slim to best, so priority must be given to getting the minimum number of rounds in to crown a champion and make 2021 worth the stress and expense the teams and management have gone through.

              I wonder if they will mix up the tyre allocations at SMP to ensure some variability to the quad header?

                Seems they couldn't get a deal with QR happening. Whether that was QR or Supercars issue remains to be seen. I am sure someone will come out and blame the other for "not making a deal happen" and how QLD got shafted etc etc. It also means that one round will clash with Challenge Bathurst in Mid-November......

                    Wayne Wakefield also raced in V8 utes and the Konica series as well as GT Production.
                    I remember hearing his name on Speedweek back in the day.

                            Supposed to be a combination of day/night and different layouts. But yeah still shit.

                            Should just cancel the season, run Bathurst as a stand-alone race and then start again next year.

                              Are they still going to press-on with bringing Gen3 in mid-2022? There was talk this week of parts being delayed on the way to Aus... surely just do the change-over at the end of 2022. Surely?

                                Yep I really can’t see how they’re gonna do a mid season swap over, it’s a logistical nightmare….not that everything isn’t atm. Past few years are a write off, and 2022 is still gonna be a bit sketchy, so I would best to use it as a ‘get back on your feet’ season where everyone is familiar with the equipment they’re running, then being Gen3 in. If Gen3 really is ready mid season then they’ll have heaps of opportunities to show it to the crowds, run a few cars around as exhibitions at race em events and all of that.
