Winton V8s 2013

Postby aussie1 » Wed Aug 21, 2013 1:39 am

Well I don't know about everyone else, but I'm finding it a little harder to get excited about this weekends racing for Casey. I was just gettng used to seeing him on a motogp bike again :( Anyway, I know I need to get over it & I'm sure I will when the weekend gets under way. Hopefully he can build on his results from last round of racing & maybe even sneek into the top 5 again more consistently from now on :D

If we have a look at how Casey has gone each weekend from the first race of each weekend to the last, he has always improved & gotten a higher placing each race & has earned more points than each of the previous rounds:

Clipsal 500 ..........…………………………………….……………. DNF & 14th Champ position - 23rd Points 64
Feb 28-Mar 3
Adelaide Parklands

Perth ..........……………………………………..…..….…. 21st, 21st & 20th Champ position – 24th Points 149
May 3-5
Barbagallo Raceway, Perth

Sucrogen Townsville 400 ..........……………..………. 29th, 14th & 12th - Champ position – 24th Points 243
July 5-7
Reid Park, Townsville

Coates Hire Ipswich ……………………………..……… 17th, 11th & 5th - Champ position – 16th Points 405
July 26-28
Queensland Raceway, Ipswich

Thanks for that Marg :) Casey was being rather modest by saying he was nowhere near the top guys times I think. Considering the state of the track & his lack of "bum-on-seat" time, he did himself no injustice at all. Be interesting to see what times he does next test. :)

Looking like it's going to be a tough weekend for Casey. :? I guess at least he's closer to the front than he was in the first practice ;)

Casey will be in the lower 50% for qualifying due to the increased number of participants in this race weekend.

For anyone wanting to see the weekend's schedule & results for each session in the Dunlop series, I have finally found a link (after much searching :roll: ) below. Just go to the right of the screen & click on the session you want. I am again going to send an email to the website owners to give them a piece of my mind about this absurd, convaluted rats maze we have to go through to eventually get to the desired page. It is absolute bull-dust. The designers should be shot (nicely of course :D ).

Lol. That's okay lemmy. It is a bit of a nightmare of a site isn't it :? It took me about 10 minutes of going around in circles to find it. A real shocker if there ever was one.

Yeah, every time I think I have found the right link, I click on it and it takes me to the main series, not the Dunlop.

Thanks Aussie..I should have come in here first, instead of going round in circles on the v8supercars site and still not finding the qualifying results! :)

The funny thing is, I tried to find it without this link just minutes ago & couldn't, so I just used this link to find it. That is just so laughably weird :lol:

It's rather obvious that this is going to be a really tough weekend for Casey, even to make it into the middle of the field. All weekend so far, he has been in the backend of the middle group. He just doesn't have the out & out speed to make any inroads throught the field so far. Hopefully he can do something in the race, but I can't see him getting any further up the road than a place in the late teens. I'm really hoping I'm wrong though. Hopefully they might be able to find something in the first race as far as settings go for the rest of the weekend.

I have a bad feeling that Casey's race is going to be cut short badly as far as race length goes. It's 2.30pm & his race was meant to start at 2.20pm. The Carrera cup race has only just finished & the V8s main race is starting at 3.35pm. That'll make Casey's day won't it :?

Would you freaking believe it????!!!!!!! What has Casey got to do to cop a break from these mid-pack idiots who try to win the race on the first damn corner. It's going to be okay Casey, just count to ten & ............... well, breath :? You'll probably going to be more calm about it than I am at the moment :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x I feel for you buddy :( Casey's seen walking back to the pits & he looks so composed. It'll be interesting to see what Casey has to say about it.
