Eastern Creek - who will win?

I love Ford but I don't think they'll win this w/end. HRT will once again take the top 2 positions. I hate to say it but Ford teams are not up to the pace compared to the Holden teams (except for Lowndes). BTW, why does the spoiler on the Falcons always fall off in colisions (eg the Skaife/Lowndes incident in Adelaide. Lowndes was out of the race and Skaife kept going)?? Very frustrating.

The Lownds& Scaife was bad luck.But I would say the Commodores are slightly smaller,more compact.Thats why they handle tight corners slightly better,"more chuckable".Fords get it back on bigger faster corners,my opinion.Bit that way on the road too.
I think the Ford teams are going to have to drive like the Rat but like a card game not all the time? Glenn is too much of a gentleman.Talking of gentleman congrat's to Jimmy Richards.Is there anything he can't drive.I remember years ago in speedway[mod production]drove 6 Cortina and blizzed the field,some were American cars and drivers too.Forrest lake stadium Hamilton N.Z..

The rat ran quite well at Eastern Creek last year (till Lowndes turned him around before the main straight..)
I'm sure Stone Brothers Racing would be quite suprised with the results Lowndes has generated with there old car.
Russel Ingal has always done well at E.Creek.
I'm sure after the Rats performance at Adelaide he will be the one to watch. Go the Rat.

bloody HRT. they just keep winning. I just can't see a Ford team winning the Championship this year. They don't know how to put it together when it counts. Qualifying on the front row means shit if you don't perform in the race.

Could see it happening after Adelaide,the rule book been thrown at someone and "guess who".Ford cannot be that unlucky all the time without some help.But we come to expect that from Avesco don't we.We are programed that way.We come to expect it!

Com on guys lets be positive.
I hate to say it but HRT have done a pretty good job for 5 years ($$$$$$). I dont see any of the other Holden teams kicking arse. Ford are at least on track, they'll take it to HRT dont worry about that.You cant tell me that 5 XR's on the front end of the grid in race 1 at Eastern Creek was'nt a pretty good effort.
