    Giggles watching Locketts reactions - ol Bowy nice and easy as are behind the wheel.
    I'd be feeling like Lockett, having been in quite a few Supercar rides over the years that first half lap your getting your head around of the feeling/s and being a passenger
    Later you don't want it end !
    Just look at his body being thrown back in the seat through the gears, love it.

    If I am reading that correctly the time was set two laps in with faded brakes. Wow.

    Just keep in mind that some Winton bench marks were set before the track resurface.

    We did work out what the resurface was worth but I can’t remember. It was huge for a supercar and it never wore the tyres. It went from abrasive to practically zero wear.

    We think this actually hurt the Pirelli tyres so that sprint time might have been better on the old surface. The GTf was on the old surface and probably could have gone 2-3 seconds quicker on the new surface. Dunlop’s like Winton now.


    Now don’t dismiss Brett as a steerer. He won’t be a luff on a track but he isn’t a dummy either.

    Only what was mentioned by Joshua.

    On social media Scott has hinted at using Heathcoat. Not expecting a good result.

    In other news
