What do you blokes reckon our chances are?

I think it'll be a close call between FTR, HRT & DJR for the points. We've got coverage here in Canberra from 1pm until 5pm both Saturday & Sunday (yay!! :D )

Lotsa beer & pizza at my place if you guys can make it...

Seto has done well there before but who knows what goes on with that team.
I think Lowndes driving will be a threat and it wouldn't surprise me to see him up front and of course HRT will be there as well.
I also think Tander and Ingal might come good

the top 10 will be all ford teams, HRT will get engine failures, GRM crash out, castrol will lose cylinders and Kmart will just **** up

at least i hope that happens

Unfortually for us Kiwi's I think we only get to see leg 2 of the race - the ****s at TV One decided to put on friggin live netball instead.

I think DJR will be up there with Radisich while the Holden boys will of gotten lost and do practice runs around Philip Island

Everyone seems to be saying they are gonna be taking it easy for race 1 because they don't want to ruin their chances in race 2 which is where all the big points are so mayb eu are lucky u get race 2, plus its better seeing 1 than 2 because that way u get a wrap up of the previous day and then u get to see teh end of it its like saying u can watch the first half or the second half of bathurst if u watch first half u don't get to see the result

The RAT has go himself a new car to play with this weeekend. and Steve will get his old one which finished on the podium something like 9 times from 12 starts.
Now the cars are technically almost identical the Rat and Steve will be able to share setup data wheras previously they were unable to do so.
The new car was instatntly on the pace at willobank when it was tested there earlier this week and the Rat seems to think It's that little bit stronger and more consistent than his last car which has been passed on to Johnson.

I hear there is good money to have on Lowndes. Think you have a couple of good choices there Doc. I also favour Craig. His attack from behind around the streets will stand him ahead of the rest, including Skaife. We can't afford for mark to come away with a big point haul in SA. Need to place him under pressure all the way. If we can do this I think he will crumble.

Adelaide Practice session 2

1 Jason Bright (VIC) Holden Commodore VX 1:25.9595R
2 Craig Lowndes (VIC) Ford Falcon AU 1:26.1225r 0:00.1630
3 Mark Skaife (VIC) Holden Commodore VX 1:26.3863 0:00.4268
4 Garth Tander (VIC) Holden Commodore VX 1:26.4884 0:00.5289
5 Russell Ingall (VIC) Holden Commodore VX 1:26.5126 0:00.5531
6 Steven Johnson (QLD) Ford Falcon AU 1:26.7677 0:00.8082
7 Marcus Ambrose (QLD) Ford Falcon AU 1:26.8390 0:00.8795
8 Steven Richards (VIC) Ford Falcon AU 1:26.8497 0:00.8902
9 John Bowe (TAS) Ford Falcon AU 1:26.8523 0:00.8928
10 Paul Radisich (QLD) Ford Falcon AU 1:26.8740 0:00.9145
11 Steven Ellery (QLD) Ford Falcon AU 1:26.9844 0:01.0249
12 Glenn Seton (VIC) Ford Falcon AU 1:27.0466 0:01.0871

15 Jason Bargwanna (VIC) Holden Commodore VX 1:27.4799 0:01.5204

If you are to look at this and assume that Tander, Ingall, Skaife, Bright are all gonna be on the pace, it looks as though its gonna be another tough couple of days racing.

Good to see Craig up in second after the session, he improved heaps over his time in the first session.

I'm starting to REALLY wonder about Seton!

You can see why Polites signed Lowndes though. Man this guy is a class driver...

2 fords out front to lead the pack after qualifying (still got the top15 shootout though)

Looks like the RAT is flexing his muscle! and I was a bit critical of Seton, looks as though the top ford boys are on the pace and looking good for the race.
