Stewards are inconsistent. He should have been given a 10 second penalty and lost some points.

Jordan and Collard got that grid penalties last tiem out, but Shedden was given a time penalty

I am suspicious of any incident involving MN. This is great news for his team mate!! CT is not known as a dirty driver like MN or JP and he said that MN braked early (possibly to avoid something else).

Is this one of those decisions made to close things up? rather than give him the punishment as described above? GS is at his home track next!!

WackyRacer: Not to worry, it Turk's year to win. I'm sure no one will really be allowed to challenge apart from maybe the other Gow pet.


Erm, he's been the best driver so far.

Suspicious, about what. CT rammed MN up the rear and punted him out. No conspiracy there, just a bit of blatant barging.

I think that maybe we should be a bit suspicious of JP and the performance difference between himself and the others. I imaging the MG will not have its boost turned down.

The straight line performance speed of Plato's MG was laughable, GS was all over him on the brakes and in the bends but he blasted away on the straights. Bet you he'll be there or there abouts at the end, charmless nerk so he is.

Funny JP wasn't whinging about pace this weekend. The Hondas are woeful down the straights GS had little chance to pass anyone.

I imagine Mr Gow is happy that JP will be there or there abouts.

But saying that I am looking forward to going to Knockhill.
