Just saw a story on sports tonight about Brock getting the drive in the IMS commodore for the rest of the series and of course the Brock vs Johnson thing was raised, It's insand that the press are whipped into a frenzy about this when Brocks car is probably going to be nowhere near the pace of Johnsons car due to the fact that it was built by IMS, having said that watch me be wrong ( :eek: ) Brock won the future tourers race on the mountain a couple of years back sure, but does anyone remember the lead car pulling off to pit a couple of laps before the race was declared and it was running under the safety car? I and a lot of other people from both sides of the camp saw that, and still see that as a very dodgy move, I have heard Holden people go to the extent of saying the race was fixed to try and raise interest in the category!!!! I guess the truth will never be known.
I guess I'm trying to say all this hype is useless, so why put more pressure on the bloke to perform, and just let him go out there and see how he does, if he's a winner, then give him the exposure he then rghtfully deserves.
