Murph should thank Skaife?

If I was Greg Murphy, I would like to thank MS and HRT for suppling me with a HRT built car, engine etc. I would also like to thank them for supplying the Teams employees, race set up, logistics, marketing, supply contacts. Organising our accomodation and transport arrangements. Fantastic people over at HRT and Holden Motorsport, very generous. Whilst Mark is probably upset at his result, I'm sure he is warm and Fuzzy that his Team has helped Murph and KMR win Bathurst. Great guy and Team. Thanks, and we look forward to your continuing support under our contract for next year

Re: Murph should thank Skaife?

Funny you say that, today on my way to work I saw the KRT transporter turning into the Lindsay Fox warehouse where HRT/Kmart are (Clayton Road Clayton). So do they share the same warehouse?

Re: Murph should thank Skaife?

I don't really think it matters. The way he drove, Murph would have won driving an EL Falcon or a VS commodore!

Re: Murph should thank Skaife?

The cars have to come from somewhere every driver has to thank the people that provide the car but at the end of the day it was Murphys driving(and kellys) that won them the race HRO should thank them for giving Holden another win.

Dude thats harsh! - He was the BEST driver over the whole weekend and the results show this. And Rick Kelly got nowhere near Murph's 2:06 in the same car.. Handbag was the man and will be remembered for it. Bring on Indy and another SBR 1-2!

Re: Murph should thank Skaife?

Am I the only one who knows if your car is not up to it, you won't be up to it?? Sure Murphy drove well, but it's glaringly obvious if the car was not as good as it was he wouldn't have done so well. That is the SAME car he drove at Oran Park and did murph make it into a winner? No far from it. They've worked hard on that car and made it into a winner, he would not have won in a VS or EL falcon - Bright can't even win in a VX...
