Marsden has proclaimed this year OURS. "For the last two years Ford has lost Bathurst, Holden hasn't won it. It won't happen this year"

A 1, 2, 3, win at Bathurst would be the perfect ending to that week. Can you imagine it?, there would be no tyre wear for all those returning home from Melbourne, the cars would be floating along on clouds with the number 9 on them!!!. Bathurst, can't wait!!!!

I think FTR deserve a 1-2 (5-6) because nobody tries harder than Seton. Although a win by Jr. Johnson on the 20th Anniversary of Johnson's 1st win would be good too.

I would like the leading ford car not be taken out by a Holden this year. Furthermore, if it were to happen again, I would not like to hear holden drivers try to make it sound like it was fords fault ie "Ford was winning, but then they crashed out ha ha". But Ford is well due for a win, and most of our teams seem to be comming good in the past few weeks. A formation finsih would be superb. But here's a little prediction. If ford does win expect the "horespower advantage" bull**** to raise its head once more.

If there is any Ford driver I want to win it this year it is Radisich. I really felt for him and DJR after 99. The ending on that race really wasnt good on my health!

Next driver Would be Seton for obvious reasons.

Dont get me wrong any Ford Victoy is a good victory but Lets get the Rat or Seton in at #1 eh?!

Yeah I hope it is Seton myself, my money would be on Craig.
I would like to see Seton get one victory before he gets shafted.

I think you are right Fordman about the pressure but I don't think the Ford teams need to be told what is expected. The problem with Bathurst, is that when you find yourself with a good package you must take full advantage right there and then. You never know when the opportunity will come again!

I would prefer Holden to win of course.

But above all want to see close competitive racing, unmarred by accidents etc.

However it's motor racing and **** happens. Mechanical breakdown is heartbreaking for both makes but it's part of the game - the race is for 1000k's not 998.

Having said that - getting robbed by some dangler nerfing you into a wall bites.

After what happened last year (Paul Morris and other Holden-based backmarkers) Ford drivers should be extra careful of kamikaze attempts to ensure Holden victory. I'm not bitter, honest. :D

When it all comes down to it, I'll be happy for any Ford team to come away with a win at the big one. But for who I'd want to win, that would come down to either Seto 1, Johnson 2, Lowndes 3..hell I dunno any of em. Rat too!
Russell.:cool:

I'll lay money Seto wont get in the top 3.
The Rat, yeah a definate possibility, Skaife and Lowndes to do a duel for first. Brighty will hold everyone else up. Big Kev will crash into every other Ford to make sure they dont place. But at the end of the Skaife will still whinge.

My money is on Radisich, I think that it the moment he has a horsepower advantage over the other cars.

But yes a Ford 1,2,3 would be great.

1 Radisich
2 Johnson
3 Lowndes
4 Seton
5 Richards
6 Bowe
7 Ambrose


DNF Skaife
DNF Bright
DNF Morris
DNF Tander
DNF Perkins
DNF Murphy
RIP Crennan. :D

Here here .........and also, lets remove the biase of officials and their safety cars...........when a bug hit the windscreen of a commodore and ford was leading, out came the safety cars for what seemed like an eternity, or at least until the commondoors caught up .......but when a commodore boot spoiler or whatever lies on the track at the end of conrod and takes up most of the road, the officials must ask, "whos leading? - HOLDEN IS - lets ignore the spoiler folks, it might affect holdens slender lead" hello????......a bit of consistency here , please. If it wasn't so obvious as it was ridiculous, maybe no one would have noticed.......

I got pissed on by the weather as well as the Holden sub humans on top of the mountain last year, I WANT REVENGE.:bond:

And another thing, there will still be racing for the championship after bathurst this year. Some of the more fancied teams might play it safe and go for the cup while people that are out of contention, like the rat! won't have anthing to lose.

Begs the question "should Bathurst be a points race"
