    Lol the giz doing everything in his power not to stay in front



    Re 888 stuff above, I reckon Dane would give you lots of info/best parts if you pay the $$$ to 888 race engineering. He seems like that kinda guy.

    You're genuinely right. They are trying to monopolize everything. Every car now runs dashes made by 888 - and other parts too.

    Ouch. Decent hit for him at turn 8 and then when he tried to stop it, nailing the wall like that.

    Yep sorry got mixed up, HRT were the only ones really persisting with ohlins before IIRC

    PRA have been there from the start with supashock have they not? DJR makes sense as tie up with PRA, interesting that HRT has joined them as above they seemed to want anything but what 888 have.

    Percat, but I think there will be a few heated words about some of the decisions

    So the race is shortened due to rain, which is fair enough, but cunts haven't filled up with the mandatory 140l and are penalised as a result.....and about 2/3rds of race actually run... Fuck me dead.....

    Interesting DJR moved away from Penske considering they've been using them since at least the EB days, and the Captain now owns the team.

    I missed most of the race because of stuff (I mean, Percat won, so obviously something got royally screwed up).

    Cliffs?

    It rained. A lot.
    Some cars crashed.
    The race stopped for a piss break.
    It rained more.
    More cars crashed.
    Anybody who didn't empty the entire contents of their fuel rig into the car copped a 30sec penalty at the end of a race shortened because they ran out of time.
    Percat used all the fuel and crossed the line first.

    Everybody was confused. And wet.

    Why do we need a rule mandating minimum fuel? I assume it's a parity thing, but F1's flow rate method (although equally stupid to me) is a far better way of doing it.

    Stupid rule = stupid outcomes

    It was because the nissans and mercs couldn't make the power without using more fuel than the others. They whinged about it and then the rule came in the regardless of whether you need it or not you must put 140l of fuel into the car during the race.

    The only good thing that came out of the race was a underdog win for LDM. Happy to see Caruso on the podium also.

    But yeah the confusion was incredible.

    I wouldn't be surprised if someone protested the results of the race. I saw 888 mid race trying to define when the race actually started with the V8SC guys so any things possible.
