    I think that was only applicable in the Saturday sprint races.

      Some good racing this weekend in Tasmania. Good to see Tekno grab another win after SVG went off on someone else's oil, a bit ironic.
      Sutherland Shires #1 Escort? is that like being the 4th best prostitute in Kazahkstan?

        Thought the racing yesterday and today was excellent. The longer Saturday run is a considerable improvement over the twin 60km races, the field is just too close on pace for anything to happen in the really short races.

          Yes IMO I thought the racing was pretty darn good. Although I only get the 1 hour highlights.
          Im glad I wasnt there thou did you see the support events? In a word woeful.

            I didn't watch any of the supports, but loosely followed on Natsoft. Thin fields in categories that don't really interest me, but it does make me wonder about what it's like to be a competitor on a local V8 support (as in, not a national category). When the foxtel deal was announced with full coverage of all the support racing, I thought that every man and his dog would have been trying to get on the card. But it turns out that the coverage of those races has been pretty ordinary, showing the first 3 cars or so almost exclusively and perhaps entry costs are too high to make the track time good value? (I'm talking about races like the IPRA supports at EC and Hidden Valley, the combined sports category that was at QR and Symmons Plains last year).

              The only full supports that interest me are at the premier events.
              Adelaide - Beginning of season
              Bathurst - No expo needed
              Gold Coast - Near enough end of season

                I think the supports are the most interesting but Tassies had nothing.
                The support races at Shannon Nationas were excellent.
                I like all racing just not v8 supercars.

                  Yeah agree, i prefer the supports to the main V8SC's. Carerra Cup, AGT, aussie race cars are all great categories to watch.

                  The SportGTs they had last year at Tassie were good to watch too. This year the Utes and HQs were the support highlights yawn... At least the V8 races were good viewing, hating being SVG hitting that oil lol.

                    Was something like $50 bucks for a weekend pass so not like they were charging top dollar for the punters but was a little lacking for the tv crowds.

                    Agree with above tho some good racing in the v8s, hopefully the other sprint rounds end up the same..

                      Missed the last ten laps (except the last one). So SVG hit some oil? Is that why he wasn't on the podium?

                        Yup - he and several others

                        Was cruel and yet somehow poetic justice

                          That moment when you realize that Sim Racing can be just as exciting as the real thing.

                            Slightly OT. Not sure if anybody else is following Scott McLaughlans run in the STCC this weekend. Qualified P2 and P4 and came P2 in the first race breaking the lap record catching his former V8 team mate Dahlgren. 2nd race on at 23:50 AEST tonight. Very small field of cars in the series (10) or maybe just this round and crazy hairpin at end of an airport runway http://www.svtplay.se/video/7493444/...cc-1-maj-12-30
                            ?

                              I watched the first race and that was a good comeback from McLaughlin after a pretty poor start. Was up to second in the second race but then got taken out by a banzai inside braking dive that was never gonna work. Didn't Maldanado was doing touring cars? 😀. I think the team would've told him to stay second regardless as to not upset Goransens championship points haul.
