Crisis talks fail to stop pre qualifying

Team managers had a meeting with the Avesco board but failed to reach agreement on an alternative to the proposed pre qualifying. As it stands names like Craig lowdnes and Greg Murphy will have to contest to gain one of the 11 spots remaining

For mine this pre-qualifying is a load of crap. Good way to turn off the fans from V8 racing. No-one will go if they can't see their hero's racing.

It really is rubbish, they should just have a normal qualifying for everyone and a cut off point, say 104% of the polesitters time.
If after this you still end up with too many cars well have a separate shootout for the last 10 cars.

Can the teams sue AVESCO for this or is there something in the contract not allowing them to so?
If this is how AVESCO works , teams could lose sponsors and it would fu@k up the sport. :fmad:

I agree along Adams line.

I reckon its simple to have everybody participating in normal qualifying and at the end the times and sorted in order. If the track takes 35 cars then the quickest start and forget percentages as the end results the same.

The only exception might be that a couple of places, eg 3 are quarantined as wild cards eg, if say a top contender has a problem not of their making, eg taken out, then they get a start otherwise the next 3 do. The definition of a top contender would have to be defined. For example any driver in the top 15 points list or some such, not just big names. ie why should big name X get a start if halfway through the season he's running in 20th spot and still can't get into the qualifying group. Not fair on the other lesser big names.

V8 Supercars has progressed to the point where EVERYBODY deserves a fair go as they aren't spending peanuts out there to give us enjoyment and a lot of fans do support the lesser known drivers.

Obviously, I would be miffed if say Craig or the Rat missed out as they were not in the "defined" top drivers the same as guys would be if Skaife was. But if their in 20th spot on points and still can't easily qualify somewhere between 16-32 then so be it. Its getting to the stage where the rules need to be fair for everybody with no favouritism or preferences.
