Congrats to Ford teams

Nice to see a reasonable number of Fords in the top 5 at the Indy meet today,

Nice also to see the big-nosed sook crying in his helmet again.. and Bright still trying to improve the front end of his VY (he should leave that to Holden designers).

Nice to note that Besnard still hasn't learnt anything about patience.

You've got to wonder which black cat the Oz-email team have killed - they should find the bloody thing and give it mouth to mouth.

Cheers
Russ

Yeah great to see a mix of Ford's doing their best today without too many mishaps. Tomorrow is looking fairly good.

I think it's encouraging to see the Fords right up there! We might not have won, but we sure were close. We might not have won many races this year, but boy we're getting close, its only a matter of time before we start cracking it consistently.

Was that the first Holden win this year that wasn't HRT?

If Lowndes stays where he is in the second race he wins the round.

Fingers crossed

well, another round passes and another way to let holden win. How can this go on??? how can lowndes be the most consistent and strongest car out there and still come away second??? This series is seriously flawd. Avesco needs to look at this, something is just not right!

Good on ya.... Whats your problem???

Fact is there's no use congradulating the Ford teams for "being up there" they need to win.... Excuses before was that HRT have all the money whaa whaa whaa.... well whats the excuse this time?? HRT out and another Holden wins...

Just getting sick of it... 4 years of "in the top 5" is crap...

I know everyone has there favourites... but Lowndes is no "god" everyone here goes on about how great he is.... then when he doesn't do so good... its "ohh, his car and team aren't real good, put him in SBR".... this is a load of shit, he went great in the Holden cause he was there at the time when they were teh best, now he's in the Ford he is struggling like everyone else....
