In case you do not remember or never heard about it (I am not being sarcastic) about 2 laps from the end, Murphy in 3rd with Ingall behind in 4th, Ingall decided that Murphy did not deserve to be on the track and promptly pushed him off.
lol you are gonna tell me about this until im a little old man arnt you macca?? unfortunately motor racing is a reflex sport, every race controversy happens, drivers get hard done by, ripped off, are lucky etc... HOWEVER the only time these things are ever highlighted is when handbag is driving. I would much prefer to see mark skaife win then handbag, at least he takes the good with the bad like a man.
for example, larry perkins being seconds behind the pace during bathurst, however refused to let ozemail team through, until they eventually were wiped out.
It happens. It will one day go in your favour. Get over it.
BTW i actually remember watching that adelaide race, if murphy was up to the pace, or got out of ingalls way like a true sportsman none of the controversy would have ever happened, but it did, and it should have been dead after the out come happened. Hand bag will be winging about his bathurst stuff up for 50 more years. (not his fault though of course)
just to add... i personally dont think v8 racing should be holden vs. ford. however in the last few rounds it has been shown that holden drivers are taking this approach, with ambrose being the final ford driver able to win the series, it may be worth adopting a similar stratergy.
