Re: merph takes the shine off bathurt for us ford fans

wait until tomorrow, as bad as it looks it might be possible some ford teams were focusing on race setup rather then qualifying. Murf may have a good setup but over the long distance he may chop his tyres up because of it. Anything can happen in this race. Remember there is just as many fords in the top 10 than holdens.

absolutly right, whats to say murph or any leading holden runs into machanical problems, im sure all the ford teams will be working well into the night to fix any minor disadvantages. As i said in my previous post wait until tomorrow to see what happens.

I'm sure ford are just not going to give up and let one of the most important races of the year just slip through their fingers.

Re: merph takes the shine off bathurt for us ford fans

i like anyone watching today was Amazed, astonished and gobsmacked by murphy's time. i was actually for the first time happy that a holden did well.

when you think about it though. in recent times who has set the fast times on saturday and or been very fast on sunday (bowe/jones (02'), ambrose(01'), Radisich (00) Gardiner (00) etc etc) who has won the race Not the fastest. were the stone brothers the fastest in 98' no, were murphy/richards fastest all weekend in 99' were bargs and tander fastest all weekend in 00' no but they all won. just because a car is fast on saturday doesnt mean it is gonna be king on sunday.

remember only nine pole sitters have also won that years race (incl atcc, 2 lt & v8Sc). with only three winning from pole since 1993 (2 v8's, 1 2lt) and only four since 1979. (sorry about all the stats)

so Dont throw the towel in yet. i have had a feeling for some 6 months now that this year is gonna be something special a race with it all. and if you think about it with 5 fords and 5 holdens in the top ten Any brand could win.

more likely than not the winner will come from the middle of the pack. remember anything can happen and enjoy the race, if ford dont win there is always next year.

Re: merph takes the shine off bathurt for us ford fans

maybe murph will drop his handbag in pitlane and get another 5 minute penalty

sorry could resist

wouldnt it be funny if and the handbag took each other out, and we had a ford 1-2-3, that would really wipe away the pain for us ford fans over last 4 years :s6:

by the way go ambrose you good thing

Amen.

Bathurst is so unpredictable and so long that anything can happen. Pitstops, debris (plastic bags... grrr...), mechanical failure, brain fade (hi Larry!), weather, tyre wear...

And luck.
