They were there, they just didn't mention them individually, cos it was 2 in a row or whatever. But they were there parked up at the end.

I would have loved to see the Kelly bros take home the win and get their name on Brockys trophy, but if a Ford driver had to win it, im glad it was Lowndes- anyone could see how much it meant to him to honour his mate in the lap of honour, and you could see it all over his face when he crossed the finish line. Full credit to him for a good drive.

Pity that in a weekend centered around the momory of one deceased driver another one took his last drive too.

As they didn't have any of the fords he drove either I'm guessing it was just the cars he won in. There would have been alot of cars if it was all the cars he drove there though

Yarr, judging by the normal exit speed of the previous corner, I reckon about 80-90 kph.

Do not do that in your normal shopping car childrens.

R.I.P Mark. That's utterly terrible news. It was a horrible crash, but I don't think it was anyone's fault.

This is a truly sad day for Australasian motorsport.

Just heard the news coming back from Suzuka, damn sad to hear of that, only a year and a half or two years ago we all got a real scare at Manfield circuit when Robin (Mark's dad) rolled his eagle spares supertruck over 2 or 3 times. The cage was crushed down on the driver and people thought we would be removing a dead body, seems motorsport is always one of those high gamble situations, despite the upmost safety in the vehicles, there are always the what-if situations, seems this was one of those.

RIP mark!

Ah they do get excited those comentators. Looking at the digital speed readouts of the cars exiting the previous corner, The Rat went onto the grass at about 130 kph ish, perhaps a bit less, and had a couple of seconds to slow down..
Unless he tried to accelerate, but given he was knocked off the road and was immediately pointing towards a wall on off camber grass..probably not

:eh:

If he was on the grass would have hit the brakes and they would have locked instantly, but the carried speed would have meant he just skidded scrubbing a little but bugger all speed off. usually all happens so fast that you often dont even have time to realise which part of the car is going to make contact with the wall or tyres.

I don't even think that he hit the brakes as he tried to get back onto the road.

Hitting the brakes on grass, I agree, no person with any real ability would do it!
