    Phillip Island 500 this weekend. Love Supercars on any track, but I think they look especially goods flying around PI. Good battle brewing between RBR and DJRTP. Will be interesting to see how the cars compare on a circuit with high speed turns.

      Lowndes had a tyre go and a big off.

      Coulthard too but a much smaller incident.

                  So what's the actual problem playing out in front of us with these tyres?

                  Are the teams being way too greedy with how much camber they are putting into the cars, or is the tyre not up to spec?

                  Are the teams running that different a setup to last year? I realise setups constantly change but surely it's not like suddenly they're throwing five degrees of camber in this year where they weren't last year on the same tracks?

                  Either way it's not a great advert for Dunlop to have half the field suffering tyre failure be it their fault or not.

                    Did I hear right during the telecast they were running up to -8 on the front and -5 camber on the rear??

                      We'll see what tomorrow brings.

                      No doubt some lessons will have been learned from today.

                        Teams were all told by Dunlop that they stepped outside the recommended setup window at their peril. Can't tell some folks

                        T8 learned from the Lowndes incident.

                        Bigger issue is team numpties now warning their drivers that official-dom was going to enforce pit lane rules over crossing the line from slow lane into the pit bays .. WOFTAM

                          Dunlop should have learnt from Pirelli and had their recommendations changed to rules, if they already knew the teams weren't following their recommendations.

                            That VLC stream that was posted up, has been laggy as fuck all morning. Even with a fuckload of buffer.

                              Parity stick will be out soon, Anytime Ford is regularly out front they slow them to keep the larger "Red Army" happy.

                                Pit stops in V8SC are retarded. Mandated fuel fills and tyre stops makes for the most retarded pit strategies.
