Ambrose tyre gave way 2 laps from finish

Very dissapointing. Would Ambrose have won the round if he finished first in race 3? Damn it!!!

dissapointing isn't the word for it. We try so hard, he was the most consistent, he didn't push his tyres till extinction, and this is how he is repaid. I am sick to death of this happening, if its not one thing its another. The only highlight this weekend was watching skaife and brights cars expire!!!!!!!!!! Congrats to murphy.

Hopefully we have more front downforce next year so we don't have to run so much negative camber at the bloody front!!!!!!

I'm over it all. I really don't give a sh|t now. If Ford wins that's great, but when they lose I won't lose any sleep over it.

That depended on where Bright and Murphy finished but it was looking good for Ambrose.

Guys, do you reckon it may help Ford karma if we change the name of this forum? I mean, we're never going to get anywhere if we call the motorsport forum 'The Pits'

It can't be helping...

Well done Marcos Ambrose and Stone brothers Racing. I was gutted when I saw the tyre blow 2 laps from what would have been a round win and I guess a lot of other Ford fans felt the same. I can't imagine how Marcos and the team felt.
