What do you blokes reckon our chances are?

I think it'll be a close call between FTR, HRT & DJR for the points. We've got coverage here in Canberra from 1pm until 5pm both Saturday & Sunday (yay!! :D )

Lotsa beer & pizza at my place if you guys can make it...

Seto has done well there before but who knows what goes on with that team.
I think Lowndes driving will be a threat and it wouldn't surprise me to see him up front and of course HRT will be there as well.
I also think Tander and Ingal might come good

Unfortually for us Kiwi's I think we only get to see leg 2 of the race - the ****s at TV One decided to put on friggin live netball instead.

I think DJR will be up there with Radisich while the Holden boys will of gotten lost and do practice runs around Philip Island

Everyone seems to be saying they are gonna be taking it easy for race 1 because they don't want to ruin their chances in race 2 which is where all the big points are so mayb eu are lucky u get race 2, plus its better seeing 1 than 2 because that way u get a wrap up of the previous day and then u get to see teh end of it its like saying u can watch the first half or the second half of bathurst if u watch first half u don't get to see the result

Go the rat !!!!

The RAT has go himself a new car to play with this weeekend. and Steve will get his old one which finished on the podium something like 9 times from 12 starts.
Now the cars are technically almost identical the Rat and Steve will be able to share setup data wheras previously they were unable to do so.
The new car was instatntly on the pace at willobank when it was tested there earlier this week and the Rat seems to think It's that little bit stronger and more consistent than his last car which has been passed on to Johnson.
