Does Russell only have one name - like Madonna?  Will Google have heard of him?

Edit: found him!

Oh, hang on.  :doh:

Dave Russel

as opposed to Darcy.

see bottom

ah thanks..

I guess, being a smart team, they'll actually cross enter the drivers, to allow any shuffling nearer the time, depending on how various drivers are doing in the championship.

I hope Allan stays with Murph FWIW, but they may need him elsewhere!

some Simonsen news to catch up on.

Been very busy, 458 is going rather well, 430 not so well, but not bad considering....

finished 2nd at Barbagello behind a current spec 888 chassis that is 5 years newer.

So I guess he's going ok.

Two podiums out of two for LMS, bodes well for them with the drop your worst race rule for GT-E as a result of that stupidity at Paul Ricard. Hope they do well at Le Mans, the 458 is proving fast but will it be reliable over 24hrs?

Both driving as B drivers in the Kelly team this weekend, and Bathurst...

Both doing a pretty average job!

But thats a good sign... Once you've driven a real race car like they both have now, a V8 shitbox isnt worth bothering with.

Their Phillip Island times are no better than a 400 bhp 360 can do.

Time wise, Russell's fastest lap was 0.4220 adrift of Todd Kelly, whilst Simonsen was a whopping 1.0825 off Murphy. Average laptimes sees Russell at a 1'38.3 and Simonsen at 1'38.9........

Roll on Drive Bathurst.....

your stats are meaningless as the race is a dynamic thing

results matter. The Murph/simonsen car beat the Kelly/Russell car though.

But both were shit.

mmm, you are quick to make assumptions. While I'm no real fan of taxis, the porsches did 34s in race 2, taxis did 35s later in the day when clearly the track wasn't at it's best for tyres. On top the Porsche race is a sprint where the taxis are full of fuel and more laps per set of tyres.
