Well HRO must be pretty happy that they have a big enough wallet to bribe TEGA. Let's hope they don't buy this years championship as well...

As MOTOR magazine put it oh so well about the Holden product...... "Excellent example of MARKETING OVER SUBSTANCE" is GM HOLDEN...

Thought Ingal might have finsihed a little higher. I guess some things never change though, Ambrose is still leading the Ford Charge!

It was in the current issue at the start of the PCOTY story where they were describing how the locals at a country town all wanted to see only the GTS.....dunno why....

4 fords in the top 10..
Holden can get away with anything, and where the hell are Ford Performance Racing. 3 Cars millions of money what an embarrasment. Congrats to Ambrose,Rusty Steve Johnson(who deserves it after a hard year) and Bowie.
Lets hope we can beat them in the race and kick that pr**k bright out of the race

Looks like another long and TWR dominated year.

I bet even if they put Skaife in a Ford, he wouldn't be able to help us.

I know we can't expect much from FPR this early, but I was at least hoping to have Lowndes make the top 10.

What is going on here Setons AU was quicker than Lowndes in a BA.

Looks like SBR are the only real Ford challengers, If only they ran six cars like TWR.

One question regarding bright.
How the hell can he bring Team Brock form dead last(well close enough), last year to front row of the grid every race this year? Surely it can't be just Brights skill?

So what do we expect??
Let's see - we've had 1 day of official testing for the BA's plus the Melbourne "exhibition" and then the lead up to this race.

Do we really think these things are going to be quick out of the box?

Personally I am well pleased with the reults from DJR and I suspect that FPR have been concentrating on race set-up rather than qualifying trim - I guess we will know by this time tomorrow.

Took the time to chat to a couple of the FPR engineers today and they seemed a lot happier than I thought they would be.

Cheers
Russ
