Australia’s Great Race is coming up in 3 weeks time, so I thought I would start a little thread in the build-up to the great race, and for you guys up in Europe I’ve found Murray Walker taking at the mountain back in 1997 inside Brad Jone’s Audi A4.
Yeah its like a red bull in f1 – dominating. I’m enjoying the racing further down the field though. No lack of battling and overtaking on track that’s for sure. I’m jealous of Neil crompton, he has a great vantage point! I’m quietly hoping for a Nissan to finish in the top ten :)
I know, but a man can dream. Maybe if something huge happens up front (not rare at bathurst), they can do a bradbury lol. Just watched the bottle-o falcon driver change, the new driver was going up mountain straight, alerting settings and tightening his belts, whilst steering with his left knee. Haha gotta love it!
Ooooh, that was a huge accident for Murphy. I’ve never seen one like that before. Mostert’s crash was a pretty big whack, but Murphy’s crash would have vaporised everything in the front suspension and bent the chassis in half a dozen places.
Yep, shows how unforgiving this place can be. Was a heavy impact, I can only imagine the amount of work they’ll need to put into that car to get it ready for surfers. On a brighter note: at least the pack is back together, and looks like teams have a couple of different options for strategy thanks to the timing of Murphy’s crash.
