Well season 2021 is here and its the final year of the “Gen2” Supercars with the Gen3 cars under full power to debut in 2022.
For those who have had a snooze and missed the details, the key features are increased road relevance, improved racing and reduced costs.
As much as we’d like to go into those details now, have a look at this Supercars.com article about key Gen3 details.
Back to the current situation and Friday proved to be a day of cobwebs for some with Erebus rookie Will Brown leaving the track heavily during P1 through the dipper clipping the inside wall and shooting straight to the outside wall. Brown admitted his stuff up afterwards and the news from the track is that after a long night the mechanics have got him up and running for Saturdays’ running.
P2 arrived with some drivers perhaps thinking they were back in the simulators with all of the Brad Jones Racing drivers, Todd Hazelwood, Macauley Jones and Nick Percat all having their own “oops” and “damnit” moments within a few seconds of each other.
First off was Hazelwood who had a suspected steering rack issue and pulled the car up at the top of the mountain, while Percat decided to go visit the green stuff through the chase, perhaps make sure it was in good condition for his beloved dog Nelson to visit later on. Macauley Jones clearly got a case of the FOMOs and joined Percat on checking out the scenery, maybe for his pet duck Sonny?
The second session was topped by Chaz Mostert who managed to keep the perfect form for the day pipping out the top spot on the charts for P2 by just 0.0111 over Cameron Waters in the Monster Energy Ford Mustang GT.
