Sorry for lack of input for the second race. I fell asleep like three times during the race and missed the finish anyway :tongue:

RANDOM OLDIE NEWS:
A former V8 Supercars driver and nightclub owner has been released from court on a suspended sentence for drug possession after a more serious trafficking charge was dropped.

Wayne Jason Wakefield, 53, pleaded guilty in the Brisbane Supreme Court on Tuesday to a string of charges relating to two police raids on his homes within a year starting in May 2020.

Wakefield admitted 18 charges including possession of a dangerous drug in excess of two grams, possessing a dangerous drug, contravening an order to access an electronic device and possessing a controlled substance.

James Courtney will retire from full-time driving after 2025. That's a strange announcement timing,

A bit overdue, but he brings his own sponsorship so I guess is a cheap hire.
Make room for some fresh young blood in the field which is good. .
The timing is bizarre, and looks like he must think he has earnt a retirement / farewell tour. :rolleyes:
