The cockhead's in the pits lost it for ford again. Ambrose was leading the race after passing bright in race 2 before they went to the pits. How Ambrose was 6 seconds behind the race leading Bright when he came out of the pits is beyond me. His pit stop was about 12 seconds which is slow, but Bright must have had a phenomonally quick pit stop, same with Murphy.

I could see that Ambrose's car was just as quick as the rest, but there was just no room for him to pass. It was deja vu, last year where his car was quickest at Winton, but he was stuck behind 2 Commodores and had no room to get passed. Damn Ford just don't get a break atall, and theres always a commodore to pick up the pieces. Another race down the toilet. Bring on BA next year...

As ambrose stated in the race his car can be made to be as quick as the Holdens but at an expense to tyres. To me he looked as if he could out brake and corner but was a little slower out of corners than the TWR cars.

Oh well, hopefully better results at the two enduros.

Getting sick of this, hopefully this blueprint thingo works, want to see some decent racing again.

What have the DJR cars done, talk about going backwards.

Yeah it's a pity Ford didn't win but at least Skaifey didn't win...that made my day.
A lot of bad luck for some Ford teams , Ambrose was robbed of a win cause his pit crew were a few seconds slow and that's all it takes.

Cockheads in the pits eh.. I don't see you in there showing these blokes how it's done. It's called Motor Sport & sometimes shyte just happens. Look at Skaifes pit stop in race 2. That's Motor Sport.

For Gods sake people.. grow some hair on your nuts & take it like men. The Commodore has an advantage at the moment. We all know that. I'm sorry but I'm just sick & tired of reading crap whingeing posts like this after V8 rounds. You don't think the Ford teams aren't trying? You think THEY like the current climate? Get your heads out of your collective arses and show some SUPPORT for OUR Ford teams who are doing their best for all race fans out there.
