V8 track time uproar

A dramatic slash in track time has been slammed bt V8 supercar drivers, who have lost nearly half their preparation for the races at Phillip Island.

Practice has been cut form 75 minutes to just 40 in short and sharp 20 minute sessions.

Only Holden drive big nose claimed he wasn't fussed.

" I seriously don't care. My point has always been that it wouldn't matter if its one lap or 100 laps of practice, the order would be the same' Shafie said

Skaife also said the Ford drivers were just having a whinge"


Craig lowdnes had this to say

"Its going to divide the category even more. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer"

It seems a bit of Cretin is rubbing off on Old Skaifey, I would expect better from him.
