    I literally walked in the door home from work. Sat down and turned on the TV saw the last 2 top ten shoot out laps. Saw your post and tought I'd get up the results.

    I'll be there tomorrow and finally get to see the VF SS-V and Calais-V in person. I take my good video camera to these events so will see what sort of footage of the cars I can get. I have a feeling you cant see much of the interior though but we'll see

    Shane VanG is racing - how is this so? Has no one taken out an injunction? That surprises me as he was released from a contract but with provisos.

    JP: Let's go back to Winton and the shock announcement. When did you make the decision that you no longer wanted to drive for Stone Brothers?

    SvG: It was a month before. I didn't want to stay somewhere where I wasn't happy. I was hating life and had to get out.

    JP: What was the problem and why were you not enjoying your time there?

    SvG: We won races in 2011 and I had big expectations for last year. I started OK and then it was a shambles from there. We all go through bad periods but I didn't see it getting any better.



    JP: So was the decision to quit all race-related? Or were you having personal clashes?

    SvG: There were a couple of clashes. It wasn't a happy atmosphere and it was going to get more political with the takeover.

    JP: What do you mean?

    SvG: Just the big glitzy stuff with Mercedes. I want a fast race car. I want to race and have fun. I wasn't allowed to do NZ Super Tourers.
    Further through the interview he talks about how he never said he was retireing

    He was supposed to stay away from V8 Supercars for a year though from what i heard about his release from his contract. I hope his team is a fair way away from stone Bros in the pits. he did a perfect stall in todays race though.
    Good win to Lowndes.

    Re: V8 Supercar Clipsal 500

    I think we will hear more about this in the coming weeks. I read a Q&A that was done with him and one Answer he gave to the question about retirement was interesting. Along the lines of, that it was Ross Stone who used the word retirement not him and that he fully intended to pursue racing back home in New Zealand when Tekno started talking to him and got his enthusiasm back.From the whole tone of the interview I got the impression he didn't want to drive for Erebus for a few reasons and the word clashes came up a few times.
