Where did Murphy almost 'chuck it away'? I never noticed him have any big moments. Yeah he whacked doorhandles with Lowndes in the first lap, but him and other drivers do that sorta thing all the time on the first lap of pretty much any race...
about the 2nd or 3rd to last restart at cat corner (quarry) he tried to go around the outside of Courtney which was never going to happen there and he had a big moment

I was quite disappointed that Luff took out Baird in the last few laps, him and Seton were having a great race, always thought Glenn deserved a win at Bathurst, not too sure what the hell he's doing in a holden again for tho', thought he was blue oval thru and thru :(

He was having issues getting a drive.. has been for the last coupla seasons.

He's one of the only guys left that deserves a break. He's never won there, but been soooo close sooo many times. And it' really is never his fault. Either the other driver crashes out, or a puncture on like the last 2 laps, run out of gas, or gets taken out.

I dont think he's going to be racing too much longer.. Struggled to get the drive he's in now.. :crazy:

That was the first time we saw signs of the rear of that car being loose. Murph knew it was going to happen but just had to wait it out. Those rear slicks were never going to go that distance at that speed.. :p

A bit tangential but Ambrose at least backed himself when at top of the Aus V8 game to go to USA and have a go. This year he has broken through into NASCAR - driving a Woods Bros Ford at both the road circuits - with good showings / got noticed (ran right up near the front in California, before getting punted off near the end) and has started at least one oval race also - not sure if he has tied down a fulltime NASCAR seat for 09.

I was abit shocked to hear that he'd not won at bathurst before. Much like the Rat something always goes wrong.
Then again sometimes the 2nd driver can bring you back from the brink too, Murphy and Richards case in point all Murphy was doing was complaining Richards got in and did something about it :thumbsup:
Wonder if he'll look at another team when his contract runs out (or someone else offer him a drive) or if he'll stay in a kiwi (kind of) based team and put up with the moaning.

Dare I say it, whinging is part of the kiwi psyche. Must be the pom ancestry.


nah, there are a few very fast Kiwi drivers who are not afflicted with Murph syndrome...

and I dont think Murph is the fastest or best kiwi V8 supercar driver out there, one demon lap excluded!

Could you say the Rat or Jason Richards?
Not sure how you would class them talent wise though.
