First time out, first time on a street circuit with foreign things called walls...Think as the season goes on he will be quick!


Its a good start, well in the top ten, interesting to see how he races, the races in his tier can get a bit crazy with all those young drivers trying to prove their worth.

Anyway I have manage to find a site with all driver's competing in this years championship. Also surprised to see Van Gisbergen back with a full time drive with Tekno, but a good surprise. :)

Nice to see someone other than Triple Eight or FPR win a race, and Shane is my favourite of the other drivers. So it looks like Triple Eight/FPR/van Gisbergen/Coulthard have the pace atm. Will be nice to see Ingall do well in his farewell season too.

Have read that Ambrose may be coming back next year, if he doesn't win an oval race this year. Will be great to have him, if so. Rejuvenate Ford's chances a bit.

Tekno cars are Triple 8 prepared, so with Van Gisbergen behind expect them to be quick.

Coulthard dominating at Melbourne, great to see. Hopefully he can carry some of this form into some actual championship rounds.

Seems all the cars out of Brad Jones racing have very good pace, They would want to take advantage of that before the bigger teams get their heads around the new cars and catch them up.

Very impressive race from both Tekno Autosport drivers, they have a very good car in the wet. Shame Frosty went off, he had great pace in the last few laps.

Damn, big change with Whincup leaving Holden. Will still be supporting Jamie, though I'll miss watching him kick a*se in the old Holden-Vodafone livery.

He's still in a Holden and in the same team Hammer, Its probably the new model VF Commodore that has caught you out there and the new title sponsor of Red Bull. I think those front headlights looks very alike to a BMW on the new VF.

Ah okay! Yes the livery threw me off.

I remember watching that race, That was a absolute classic battle!!! still can work out how Courtney made it to the finish even with that major fuel saving he did.

Bloody hell. Winterbottom even unluckier than Webber so far this weekend. Lost an almost definite win in the first race, and a 1st/2nd in the 3rd race, and another very good result in the 4th race.

Yeah there was, too short of a track for many passing opportunities though. It really just pisses me off to see that Winterbottom had the fastest car all weekend, and came out with only 1 top 10 finish.
