Question FPR have a good chance at Eastern Creek?

I was thinking recently (aargh) and apparently Glenn has had alot of success at Eastern Creek...Well you combine his previous data and then for the past 2 years Craig Lowndes has had a win slip between his fingers, so obviously he has good data there too...So could they combine the 2 and come up a winner again? What do you think, I think they should be on the pace - but HRT have had a good run at EC previously also...Could be a good one.

Well, to be perfectly honest, the HRT cars were still running away from the Fords all weekend at PI.

I dont expect HRT to lose car speed, so resign myself to the fact that at best, it could be a neck and neck dogfight, but if things continue as they are, I think you will see more of the same :/

Chevs may go, but theres nothing like a HO!

I'd be happy with a top 5 result from the FPR guys. As XWGT said HRO are still a fair bit faster than anything Ford can throw at them.

I think if Ingall can keep his nose clean, his car straight and get a starting position towards the front he'll be a real good chance.

He seems to have very good car speed with his BA and no trouble cutting through a field of cars infront of him.

Seton is good around the Creek I remember in 2001 he was running away from everyone but got stuffed by an unlucky pit call but I can't see him as an outright contender as long as he's still steering an AU

Im with XYFalcon on this one, i reckon ingall will probably be a good chance if he keeps his nose clean - well both stone brothers cars will be if a few things go right!

but, im sorry to say, HRT are going to be the ones to beat still

control freak also has a good record at ec.. I am not sure with the speed he showed at pi. Want ford to win badly so let's hope murph bumps him off and bingall or craig come through for the win heheh or maybe bright will do the honours this time.

If you are not spinning your wheels in 4th you don't have enough power

I think the only FPR driver that has any change is Criag. And I'm only saying that becuase Glenn & David are in old GSR AU's.....

Glenn Seto is GOD !!!!!
