Why the question mark. You forgotten what goes on at KSR and getting mixed up with where you race now, at Trans Tasman Rivals ;p

Very interesting, seems to be a race about to start. Chat regarding grid positions and the drama trying to get the drag cars off the track :p

Have to say, Wincup did a epic job. .0002 behind at the second sector with rain spots visable was just an awesome drive across the top.

Awesome last stint I must say, watching Lowndes come from nowhere to take 3rd and the battle up front with fuel/tires and picture perfect laps from both drivers taking it to the line, I may be a ford backer but that drive by Whincup was outstanding and deserved the win

Bring on next year with the new cars and new manufacturers _b

Those last few laps were epic.

Wincups win was deserved, sadly. His team are the reason for the win just as much as him, a top effort all round.
Shame that David Reynolds was getting loose out of the dipper. He just couldn't get close enough for a dive up the inside at Forest Elbow.

Had he been able to throw it in there I doubt Wincup could have gotten past, Reynolds was fantastic under brakes at the chase and final corner.
