Race 1 an embarrasment again... Twigg leapfrogging Hacket at T2.. literally! Crick does well until he runs wide and wrecks radiator, Porsche headlamps falling out under braking! (No, they don't brake THAT hard), Only ferrari running had it's brake light in upside down, and missed quali with "cyber glitch" so started ROG... Dean Grant took himself out by turning in blatantly on poor JK, who luckily and justifiably finished 2nd. Lotus drives past lambo down the straight! Ascari pathetic.

Quinn deserved winner, drove well.

shambles.
i had been talking to twiggy over the past two weeks looking to buy his cup s. that might change now.

about bloody time too.

Cars are so far into the distance technically, they should be 5 seconds faster!

Bloody GT1 cars masquerading as GT3  :mischief:
let's hope they can't run 12 hrs straight.

why?

You realise it's a race car and ALL used race cars have had a prior life.

Just 'cos you saw THAT crash, shouldn't stop you from buying it.

What about all the others?

Just do the smart thing, get the car inspected by someone who knows what they're looking at, and act accordingly.

THAT crash wasn't even that bad, it looked far worse than it was. Eastern creek was probably worse, and it's fine after that.

If want an uncrashed race car, go buy a new one... even then, be careful!

Hnag on - we did ok










Unscathed  :D

Survival shouldn't really be something to celebrate in racing, but in Aus GT, with the emphasis on amateur drivers, it certainly seems to be.

Of course, to finish first, first you must finish... but....

So, err, well done! (Cini and Loccisano for the benefit of others)


Aus GT would be an infinitely more watchable/TV marketable event if there were more professional drivers.

Won't buff out, but will repair easily, just need money and time.

neither car badly damaged enough to give concern.
