VIDEO: Casey Stoner previews final V8 race

"I don't know if I'll come back into motor racing or not" - Casey Stoner.
A video interview with former double MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner ahead of his final scheduled appearance in the V8 Supercar championship.

The Australian switched to the series after retiring from MotoGP at the end of 2012, but now plans to take a complete break from competition in 2014.

In addition to V8 racing in Australia, Stoner has taken part in some MotoGP test sessions for Honda in Japan, helping to develop next year's race machines.

Stoner says: "I don't know if I'll come back into motor racing or not. There are a few business opportunities I've been looking at for the past few years. We've decided to step away for four to six months then think about the future..."

I think if the rules had been different in the Dunlop Series he would have enjoyed it more and probably continued. They have changed the rules for 2014 as they could see that not only Stoner was getting frustrated by it all. He would qualify in the top ten, get punted if the track by somebody else than have to start the second race from where he finished. He would often pass 10 to 15 cars but that still meant starting the 2nd race from 15th or worse on the grid. He would work his way up the field but never be in contention to win due to having to pass most of the field in the first two races. Next year they are having two longer races instead of the three with separate qualifying for both. He has shown good speed so it is a shame to see him not continue.
