Thumbs up Bathurst 2001 is ours

Marsden has proclaimed this year OURS. "For the last two years Ford has lost Bathurst, Holden hasn't won it. It won't happen this year"

A 1, 2, 3, win at Bathurst would be the perfect ending to that week. Can you imagine it?, there would be no tyre wear for all those returning home from Melbourne, the cars would be floating along on clouds with the number 9 on them!!!. Bathurst, can't wait!!!!

I would like to see a formation finish. Don't really care which Ford team.

I think FTR deserve a 1-2 (5-6) because nobody tries harder than Seton. Although a win by Jr. Johnson on the 20th Anniversary of Johnson's 1st win would be good too.

mad

I would like the leading ford car not be taken out by a Holden this year. Furthermore, if it were to happen again, I would not like to hear holden drivers try to make it sound like it was fords fault ie "Ford was winning, but then they crashed out ha ha". But Ford is well due for a win, and most of our teams seem to be comming good in the past few weeks. A formation finsih would be superb. But here's a little prediction. If ford does win expect the "horespower advantage" bull**** to raise its head once more.

If there is any Ford driver I want to win it this year it is Radisich. I really felt for him and DJR after 99. The ending on that race really wasnt good on my health!

Next driver Would be Seton for obvious reasons.

Dont get me wrong any Ford Victoy is a good victory but Lets get the Rat or Seton in at #1 eh?!

Yeah I hope it is Seton myself, my money would be on Craig.
I would like to see Seton get one victory before he gets shafted.

I think you are right Fordman about the pressure but I don't think the Ford teams need to be told what is expected. The problem with Bathurst, is that when you find yourself with a good package you must take full advantage right there and then. You never know when the opportunity will come again!

I would prefer Holden to win of course.

But above all want to see close competitive racing, unmarred by accidents etc.

However it's motor racing and **** happens. Mechanical breakdown is heartbreaking for both makes but it's part of the game - the race is for 1000k's not 998.

Having said that - getting robbed by some dangler nerfing you into a wall bites.
