Ooh, imadodgyumpire changed his avatar = good
It's not of Neil Crompton = bad
If the Panthers win the GF tonight, I'll leave this for another week.

Then I'll have this for another week, because C9 reporter Hannah Sinclair rocks the pink dress


Then I'll put he Neil Crompton one up.

Why ??

If they didn't come JW would've had 10 titles.
I think I agree with Roland.

But it's more that they were kind of out of place in Australia I think. People can do what they want, but Australia is a smaller racing "industry/culture, etc." and Penske is a bit too much. They're presence alone makes it harder and more expensive for everyone else. Over here is the place for smaller teams bottom feeders, which is why Dane's over here.

T8 wasn't exactly a small setup when he got here.

Yeah they were dominant but Penske added some legitimacy to the competition IMO
Having Penske was worth a shot as Supercars were losing the local car market and needed a hook as a series. I thought their initial try with 1 car with an out of practice Ambrose was silly and did wonder about their commitment but they came, they won, and they took their golden boy in the process. The Supercar governing body didn't help matters with their idiotic mid year rule changes and knowing their track record will not have learned a thing from their corrupt meddling.

Rick Kelly retires from full time racing.
Who will replace him Coulthard would be good pick.
Anyone understand what they mean by this? "Kelly is also said to be looking at taking his Castrol backing elsewhere."
Why would he take sponsorship away from his own team?
