Congrats to Ambrose and the Stone boys. Seems they are our "great blue hope". What happened to ingall? too much hooning on stunt bikes last night?
Also good work to FPR and Lowndes 4th is good, very good,
However bessy and Seton must be scratching their heads. I know they old cars and all but come on they 1.8 and 2.1 sec down out qualified by Bargs and larko (in bessies case)
Also begrudging well dones to Paul Moarris (grrrrr) and team dynamik (there are questions to be asked with this team, i feel)
Seems thexton is in by a pubie. 105 of fastest time was 95.7495sec. thexton gets 95.67 - lucky?
Now on the with the "main event"
commiserations and get well soon to the official biffed by beak. hope you get recover Ok.
Apparently Kellies top 10 time has been disallowed so he has been bumped to 10th and everyone pushed up a spot. Knocking Lowndes up to 3rd.
This could actually be disadvantage as the "outside" is considered a better position at EC. Ambrose and Lowndes on the inside and skaife murphy on the outside. I seem to remember many years ago the pole winner could choose which side he wanted, and this set the order right down the grid, A bit like wining the toss in cricket and deciding if to bat or bowl first.
Maybe this is something they could revisit? add a nother point of interst (mind you 95% of the time the choice is a no brainer..still tactics, tactics, and another reason to try for pole)
Also in this morning warmup skafe was .4 faster then anyone else. with the best ford being 4th (JB) and a full.7 down.
Lowndes only pulled 3 laps over 2 seconds slower.
I have a baaaad feelling about today.
