Well in a race everybody did their best to lose, ford teams showed their cards on how they intended to hand over victory to holden in the main race this year.
Here are some of the pics:
brabham coasts into pitlane
Brad: Hey kim, was andys engine from the same batch as the one thats in our racecar? An engine failure would be a new way for us to screw up an otherwise promising weekend
Kim: lemme check!
JB: What can we do that would top andys effort of clipping the wall and ruining the tyre & steering though?
an SBR falcon (albeit an older model) shows that perhaps there is more tyre troubles to be expected on their cars again this year
wakefield shows that perhaps heavy contact early on in the race is not good for your cars longeivity
and finally, this team decides to show that the classic"beach it in the sandpit" manouver is still a very valid way to remove yourself from the running in the race
Finally the car of matthew white crosses the line first, billowing smoke out of the right hand rear corner...
