The Offish V8 Supercars 2008 Thread - Never matched

That's this thread, and the racing.

See V8 Supercars is simply the best form of racing in the world in my honest opinion.

Formula One? Should have called it Bore-ula One. No action.
Nascar? V8 Supercars race on things other than ovals.
Moto GP? Cars > Bikes.
Rally? The cars aren't two days apart.

Often imitated, never matched.



Anyway 2008 should prove to be one of the best seasons in while, there were a lot of changes during the off season. The main ones were:

Garth Tander from Toll HSV to HRT

Todd Kelly from HRT to Jack Daniels

Paul Dumbrell from Supercheap to Toll HSV --> really looking forward to this one.

Russell Ingall finally woke up to himself, from Stone Brothers to Supercheap

Team BOC are now Holdens,

Cam McConville from Supercheap to Team BOC

And a few others.

Clipsal begins on Friday


And thus begins our Bathurst retribution. Time to wipe that hideous smile of Lowndes' face.


Enjoy everyone!!!

I can agree entirely with this.

Your Holden blather, however ...

Ford fans > Holden fans. Why? Because we don't have to resort to childish acronyms.

Holden fans > Ford fans.

Ask any Holden fan.

Yes, but Holden fans are the Collingwood fans of motorsport.

Zing!

Seriously, there's got to be a third (and fourth) make of car in there, it's getting mighty dull. I watched the highlights of the Bathurst 12 hour race on the weekend and watching all the different makes and classes, it was like the Bathurst of old....

:has senior's moment:

I wholly agree with that. I have very fond memories of much more diverse Bathurst fields when I began paying attention in 1997-98. I'm really a Ford fan only by default, i.e. I don't support Holden so I go for Ford rather than supporting Ford in the first place. The introduction of other makes of cars could easily cause me to switch allegiances. I tend to favour drivers rather than makes anyway.

Seriously as if the Clipsal ain't a pain already. They've already blocked off streets for the circuit which is fair enough and a pain to those trying to get to work, but just 50 metres from my office they've blocked off ANOTHER road in the city today to have, get this, a PIT STOP CONTEST!!!!! Like WTF has that anything to do with actual motor racing!!!

Come the revolution, Tony Cochrane is first up against the wall...

"And These Fucking Cars just keep going around and round and round....oh and there's been a crash, about time something exciting happened this was getting fucking boring!"

Something along those lines......

-The 12th Man

Seriously......people come watch me drive to work in the morning!....I get up to 140 sometimes!

*hope's there are no police on Interference!*

You clearly don't drive a Holden. It'd fall apart as soon as you pass 101km/h.

No offence, but that insult was a bit sucky.


And I'll never understand the motor racing boredom. I love it.

I don't detest the idea of a third constructor, I just don't like it. I've always been a traditionalist, no matter what it is. I still prefer test cricket over other forms, the AFL Granny must always be on a Saturday arvo.

Big Brother is almost as exciting as Car Racing.

I'll like watch the start of a race, go off and maybe if I can be bothered watch the last couple. Everything else in between though....is just boring.

I think I see as I do when watching golf, I like playing golf, but its terribly boring to watch.
