PA specialises in the toys out of the pram routine and barely takes anything to do it.

I fail to see how Supercars is responsible for a guy who is under contract but wants to go race for another team, and why it should be allowed.

Hell, Betty should have made Will or 888 buy out his contract. Simple as that.

As some have suggested elsewhere, open the seaon at SMP as the Supernight thing.

Give it a short, sharp format over a Saturday. 3 races, soft - I mean Supersoft - tyres, progressive grids, pitstops for minimum 2 tyres. Make the races 30min long, 45min - 1hr in between. Practice and qualy Friday arvo, when the local school kids are there. Top 10 shootout Saturday, then Race 1 late arvo, just before sunset, one in twilight, and the final under full lights.

Oh, and on the short track. Funnel everyone onto the hills at either end of the front straight, and into the grandstand, and it'll be sick. Hire some carnies to blow up some jumping castles and run a ferris wheel, showbags, etc.

Put right before NRL and AFL get going for their seasons, and make sure round 2, is not more than a fortnight away. Make a whole heap of noise about it in the media, and use it to build momentum for the rest of the year.

As much as people think it's boring it did turn in some good racing. Maybe more even now that SVG isn't around with freakish tyre preservation.

Kai Allen looks set to take a DJR drive in 2025. But who does he replace? Does Davison get pushed out or De Pasquale go looking for another drive?

Surely thats an easy answer. DP is future investment compared to WD and age goes against Will. Co-Driver duties in the future I would think.

They invested in ADP four years ago and where has he gotten them? Davison has level pegged him and not been outshone at all.

Davo is only early 40s so hardly retirement time.

I reckon DJR will clean house and have Allen and someone else new next year.

I think it is important to more that Will Davo was very flattered by the pre adjustment Mustang performance that had mid pack runners all up the front.

Agree, I had high expectations of Anton but he's been mostly a letdown. DJR has been struggling as well, that's true and possibly Anton would get better results in better machinery but on the other hand he's not even a clear number one at DJR. Pretty disappointing.

With both drivers out of contracts at the end of 2024, I wonder if DJR will be trying to get Kostecki...

DJR have in total, failed since the loss of Penske, however the future is ADP moreso that WD (based on his age)

Just my thoughts. right or wrong

Is there a rumor of Penske coming back? When Penske pulled out he must have left a big hole? as DJR dropped like a stone. Maybe the good Doctor can show us how smart he really is and turn the ship now he is back?

In the early rounds in 2023 DJRs cars were terrible, when we saw their cars running at the back of the pack with their ass ends on the deck. The other Ford teams must have dropped their heads. The homologations team being completely in no man's land with a crazy out of your tiny mind setup in their cars. That told the paddock that they were completely lost and out to lunch. The other Ford teams would have though "what the **** have we got"?

I was thinking of ADP last weekend. The young up and coming driver who was hoping to be the next big thing, is now looking at being moved past by a group of younger drivers in better teams. Things have not panned out anything like they did for Scotty. Scott is a lucky boy, Anton not so much. Scott got a big break and was able the build on that with his talent, Anton has got a lemon. It will be interesting what pans out.

Will Canberra make it onto the schedule next season or not far past that?

Mr Hill has his Tyrepower MSR Camaro on shopping centre duty at Majura Park, visiting their Canberra based sponsor SupaGlass, and doing demos on the closed off public roads, and the Canberra Festival of Speed to what has to be said is a fairly decent sized crowd.

Good on MSR for picking up on the opportunity to showcase the local driver, his main game car, and for MSR for allowing it to be the lovely, noisy experience it is.

Canberra comeback for ‘25? Please..

You are sooooooo negative, the new engine is so powerful that they've had to put a restrictor in it so that the camaro will be able to compete.

DJR needs all the engine they can get their hands on. They are the restrictor.
