I just saw that. **** me, I can acknowledge that supercars is a higher standard than state HQs. But with Whincup being an all time great and to do that just affirms to me why touring cars is the lower level of professional motorsport. I'm amused when guys on any forum embellish their abilities/records.

Would be interesting to see how many mistakes “international drivers” would make in a foreign car though.

The international drivers are not the best international drivers. How much experience has at his joint?

But your post emphasises my point. Instead of just going "Yeah, Whincup's a penis head" or just letting the comment pass, you had to get defensive about it.

Not even a brain dead idiot like Morris attempts to pass there.

You fire up pretty easily.
Yeah he made a mistake, but don’t pretend like it’s only v8 Supercar drivers that make mistakes in racing.

Well, let's count them then.

The memorable brain dead idiot moves in this race over the years have been form supercar drivers. SVG threw away a podium when the race was almost finished. Mostert punting blokes out of the way in a faster car just before approaching conrod.

Reckon we’ve seen a few mistakes from the inters just this weekend.
The v8 drivers mistakes just standout because people know them.

People are going to make mistakes at a place they don't know when they're doing 2.05s. Said place happens to be one of the more difficult places in the world to drive.

The V8 guys have made more mistakes because of overconfidence

And also because they’re in a completely different car to what they are used to.

Would you rather drive in a foreign car at a familiar place or a in a familiar car at a foreign place?

No doubt confidence plays a part whether it be overconfidence in the knowledge of car or track.
