Shootout Results **Update**

1 2 Holden Racing Team Todd Kelly Holden Commodore VY 1 1 0:56.9015
2 50 Team Brock Jason Bright Holden Commodore VX 1 1 0:57.6482 0:00.7467
3 51 K-Mart Racing Team Greg Murphy Holden Commodore VY 1 1 0:57.6955 0:00.7940
4 18 Shell Helix Racing Max Wilson Ford Falcon BA 1 1 0:57.8263 0:00.9248
5 65 Betta Electrical Paul Radisich Ford Falcon BA 1 1 0:57.8697 0:00.9682
6 1 Holden Racing Team Mark Skaife Holden Commodore VY 1 1 0:57.9175 0:01.0160
7 20 Orrcon Racing Jason Bargwanna Ford Falcon BA 1 1 0:58.1224 0:01.2209
8 4 Pirtek Racing Marcos Ambrose Ford Falcon BA 1 1 0:58.2709 0:01.3694

10 34 Garry Rogers Motorsport Garth Tander Holden Commodore VY 1 1 1:00.2457 0:03.3442

I only caught the end of the webcast - Skaife and Murph's runs - but apparently was intermittant drizzle over parts of the track during the shootout, certainly during Bright, Skaife and Murphy's run.

edit: Update - just saw on the TVNZ website that because of the rain showers that interupted the shootout the shootout results have been scrapped and race order will be from qualifying yesterday

Re: Shootout Results

Good runs by some of the Red Boys.

Gee - Todd Kelly is a Specialist at scraping into qualifing then grabbing pole.

SBR need some lightening pit stops

Re: Shootout Results

apparently there was raining during the top ten shootout so the officals decided to make it fairer to revert back to original qualifying times so toddler is now back to 10

Re: Shootout Results

Re: Shootout Results

I was a bit disappointed they dropped the shootout results, yes the rain varied a bit but that’s life! Plenty of shootout & qualifying sessions have been affected by rain in the past but this is the first one I can remember that has been dropped after it had actually been run. Traditionally a wet qualifier gives people the chance to showcase their skill and reduces the effects of power advantages.

If you look at the times, the 2nd -8th cars are all covered by 1 sec which is not too bad, the only exceptions being T Kelly who was lucky enough to get a dry run & Tander who I suspect may have been sandbagging as no-one else was within 1 ½ sec of him.

Not a bad pre-emptive whinge by Garry Rogers either, after hearing that was anyone surprised that GT was slow? It was clear he wanted the shootout abandoned and the best way to do that was to set a ridiculous time, well good job it worked.

Re: Shootout Results

I agree with you Outback Ute
Get over it guys, the idea of a shootout is just that, if the conditions change, such is life, isnt it the same if it rains thru the qualifing second group, its life, life is not perfect.
I really believe that changing back to qualifing results makes our sport look like a joke, brings it into disrepute, I think the offical who decided this should be fined.

Re: Shootout Results

I’m not sure who was first to panic about the rain but then whenever Ten spoke to anyone they were all worried about smashing the car, it spread like a disease. Then because everyone is saying the same thing it automatically becomes true and I imagine the officials were under pressure to drop the shootout.

Shootouts always raise the possibility of turning the car into a ball – remember Dick Johnson in 1983? It’s up to the drivers to work out how much of a chance they are prepared to take, just as it always is. If they’re worried about falling off the road & damaging the car, slow down (or stop racing).

Re: Shootout Results

I dont think it would of been an Advantage to us, I think Skaife would of won the round then, but, that would of been better than Murphy to me
