A Win For Lowndes and FPR @ Phillip Island

Well done Craig and FPR for a win so soon in the series.

Craig looked strong the whole time and the team made the right choices at the right time regarding tyres and fuel stops.

It is a shame the race was called due to wet weather but I feel that Craig was a fair contender to win even if it had run the full race.

Bad luck for Skaiffe to get a drive thru penalty.

An Ambrose v Bright incident looked nasty and I feel Bright has something to answer for but I guess it is history now.

Great job to the FPR crew and Lowndes,good to see a win
I feel for Ambrose though,I dont know why Bright had to nail him and spin him around after they both allready made contact,that one should be looked into.
