"Cold Turkey. I think there's no doubt again being through with it. You'll have that bug, especially when cars were all out for the first time next year. And I remember Mark Skype saying the same to me, you'll know if you've made the right choice when you first stand on the pit lane and you're watching the cars all filing out of pit lane when you're not in one. And the emotions of that, whether it internally, you feel strong enough that you should be a one or whether you're comfortable with the decision you've made. But I think for me, I was comfortable in the decision. But at the same token, as the year rolls on, you do a couple of test days and you get back in the driver's seat. You sort of become more eager to continue as a race driver. So I think Jamie will probably contest next year as a character of it. That's my thinking and my take of it. Where that puts me, I'm not sure that we'll have to say catchy jokes that he is moving to grove racing because of the change. We haven't had the we haven't had time and it's for next year. But a good sit down to really plan out the roles and responsibilities of everyone. What specific role Jamie will be doing in the garage, it'll be interesting. I think he'll do a good job no matter which way we skim the cat of who's doing exactly what. Yeah, I've said to him half joking. Are you sure you don't just want to do my job? Am I staying at home now? Are you are you going to are you going to be between the two race engineers? Yeah, you're doing that. So and a controller or whatever. So I've posed the question to Jamie. I imagine he'd want to get in and do all those things. But yeah, I don't know. We'll have to see. Yeah, see if I still have a job. Graham win cup doesn't think 2022 will see a big change at the team. But looks forward to celebrating Jamie's driving career after the bathurst 1000. Yeah, I wanted to get away before before he became my boss. Yeah, I didn't want him to have to shout at me. Basically. The immediate challenge is this weekend. He will share the car with wind cup at Bethesda. Hopes to send him out on a high, similar to how low and spinach his final bathurst as a full time driver. Well, I think it's going to be interesting because again I went through that Pfizer in 2018 and it was a great result for Steve Richardson and I. So hopefully I can fend him off in a same sort of positive way. Understanding where he's at in the sense of his head, motions, hopefully I can take some of that pressure off him. And he can enjoy the last battles 1000 as a full-time driver and as a lead driver. You know, I'll be talking to him throughout the weekend and again he's a very private person in a lot of ways. So again, I'll try and carry some of the load of the PR side of it and just let him enjoy what will be his last full-time bathurst race. He will be very focused on the qualifying, all the elements and the areas that he will be taking on. So all I've got to worry about is the race car getting hopefully if I start the race, a good start, keep it out of trouble and hand it over to him. So yeah, it's going to be quite emotional for him. I was no doubt, he's very good. I said, very good at hiding a lot of his emotions. So we'll see what happens when we finally get there. If Jamie is co driving at triple-A next year, is it there luck for Garth tender? Well, that could be the case, but yeah, again, it's something that for me talking never go cold Turkey and I haven't. And although we're doing commentary side of it now as well. And that in the mix, it is busy and it's going to be busy for Jamie to get his head around running the team. The politics all the business decisions that he's going to have to take on. I know he's got wrong and Tony Quinn on his side. So he's got some very powerful people beside him and around him that can help make those decisions. So I think that's going to be a big class for Jamie. But again, at the same time, he's now next going to be on the topping board if things go wrong. As Jamie's full-time racing career comes to a close. What advice would Graham win cup like to have given his nephew when he was starting out? David and I probably lived our dreams. With China, you know, we've always wanted to be successful in whatever he desired to do. We encourage payment, whatever he did. And. A lot of people ask me, you know, I want my son to do what you can do. And I think it would be very difficult to do because of the family unit that we had with David and myself and, you know, were brothers, but were a part in Jaime was the nucleus of what we were doing. And there was always plenty of enthusiasm and if one got a bit down the other one to take over and it just worked like that. So I don't, you know, think that when change anything, I suppose every race car driver has aspirations of becoming a Formula One driver. But, you know, we certainly weren't rich enough to go down that path. And I think with what we had available to us, he's done a great job. And I don't think there's anything I'd really want to change. At all. I'm pretty happy. How different is Jamie wing cut now to the young man that sat down in his office, hoping to drive at triple 8. Roland Dane here. He's the same person, but very very, very much more experienced and grown up. And as should be. And he walked in here as I remember at 22 year old or something. So he's very different in terms of experience. Now and that shows, he's developed as a person, particularly in the last four years or so. He's since he's had his own business as well with this car wash business and settled in his personal life. And recognizing the fact that he wasn't going to drive forever. So what am I going to do? What am I plans planning that properly? And understand what he wants to do. Has focused on the job in hand and he's really pushing for this heart and so I think into into working out what his future looks like. If you would like to learn more about Jamie cut, his autobiography drive of a lifetime is now available in all good bookstores. Next week, we will return to wrap up the 2021 Beth is 1000.

"Yeah, look at there's been a lot of banter and a lot of fun amongst the four drivers of triple-A. Given the battles that we've had over the journey, roast against Jamie, particularly the year that I'd run the championship 2007, I came down to two points between Jamie and myself. The following couple of years, we were inside when January 1 of the championships started to look through this on and then obviously shine, you know, I came on the scene 2007, you know, race against him that whole time. Scott gallon. You fell in love with the engineering side of motor sport. So he's learned a lot from that. And I think in business, he took his time to figure out what he wanted to do, but the car wash business that's going to begin engineering factor he wanted to be the most modern and different and best in Australia. Again, he's applauded that. And I think motor sport, you know, that's all he's 9, it's in his blood and he genuinely cares about the sport. I mean, he's not just about how he wants to win because that seemed Brady. But he has a genuine care for the state of the sport. So being on the commission and now being an ironer and a manager, I'm not surprised he went down that track and either is anyone around and really and I think he'll divide a lot of time between that and his business because he wants to be successful at something other than drawing. Kevin fitzsimmons is the operations manager at Dunlop yeah, we had a pretty good relationship with Jamie and still do you know the way through? And he's done a lot of the tyre development in recent years with the introduction of the soft tire of ten years or more Agones. So the thing and more recently, the super soft time. Part of the thing, the homologation team with the Triple H being the gene obligation team sort of thing that is feedback was exceptional. Roland Dane spoke about when he first thought Jamie might be the right person to succeed him in leading Triple H. About four years ago, I think when he was talking about the fact that he wanted to get he wanted to get involved in the sport. For the long term. And he regarded Triple H as his home. And so it started to become apparent and then we talked about it some more. And the planets aligned in terms of what I was thinking of when I needed to be able to step back the timing the timing was appropriate. Tiny Quinn has also brought in and he is very confident that Jamie will be the right man to lead the team. But if we look at Jamie as a team principal, she's I don't think anybody that's more determined than Jamie works very, very hard, he's super intelligent and he's tough enough. And it feels to inhibit forward from Roland is going to have a tough day anyway. And I think if anybody can do it, I think jailing can not be house knows the business, like he does. Two miles has just sold out his share to allow Jamie to become an owner of triple 8. Yes, that's true. And he has the appropriate level of apprehension and fear as well. That big shoes to fulfill. And if you close to roll under any time, the level of energy he's got to executing whatever it is that he's working on is frightening and Jamie will match that in spades. And then what comes with being a 102 is I wonder is that that energy's well directed because he's been doing it for so many years. And that's where, I think Jamie is benefiting from the way he's designed the handover. I mean, even that's Jamie's design. I'll have an announce now that I'm retiring up and that's now I'm going to become the managing director of chunk of our own shears and put my money where my mouth is. And then I'll spend the next 12 months making sure that the stuff that I take for granted on our learn is a driver I took for granted on our learn. So, you know, he's got himself a, as soon as you buy that decision, move to Brisbane and still the Gold Coast comes off into the office. All of those things that you need to do to allow that osmosis learning. Jamie's doing. Miles said there is one thing that everyone will see firsthand with him in the team principal role. Hey, Heidi works. You won't find anyone who works at her. Goff tanta here. He has the ability to apply in self in the business world as well as he did in the motor sport world, then you can only expect continued success for Triple H, couldn't you? Because, you know, I think he's. Developed himself in the business world quite well already. He's had a couple of businesses running with his car washes and cafes and things like that. And I guess that was always just to learn the ropes of the business world and understand what's required. You know, clearly on a much smaller scale than what people like is, but I build the basics if you like and this year being involved in the supercars commission was always was also another step towards getting a better understanding of the sport and the politics and the business aspect of the sport, so that he has a clearer understanding of how that works when he goes into this team principal role. So, you know, realistically, you have to look at the groundwork has been going on for a few years now. It's a very, very successful organization that Roland has built up. And he wouldn't and a seasonal baby. I've learned that since being involved in the rice team that Triple H Rollins little baby and he wouldn't be turning that over to just anyone I wouldn't imagine. So yes, role will still be there in the background, but it's very much going to be Jamie steering the ship going forward. So, you know, the skills that he's acquired over the last couple of years in business and I've said the application and the professionalism that we've seen from a driving career, if that's translated into the business world, then, you know, I don't see anything changing as far as people I think successful going forward. Kevin fitzsimmons from Dunlop is also confident of wind cups next step. Not only the 7 championships and Beth are swings and everything else that he's done, but you know, people people don't take it out to notice of the things he's done in the background, I've never seen him being on the commission and as I said, he's very good at wearing the category and helping the sport grow. You know, it's been very, very good. He's a great investor. And he'll still be around and he won't be his own trek activities will be missed and everything that's certainly been a credit to the sport to creditor himself and his family, you know, he's been very, very good for that point of view for the betterment of the sport that.

"Them in and take them out. And that's developed a lot of the last 15 15 plus years to providing the drivers with the best possible environment in which to apply their trade. So Jamie's been a massive massive part of that. He's OCD. There's no doubt about how he is routing driven, but he's also OCD. So as I said, like, he has to wear any boots. He's a roast boots at the start of the year because that's just for him it works. He's the only driver in pit Lana puts basically those boots. I suppose you can call them on on every time you get in or out of the car because again, they for him if that's just a routine and something that works for him. So yeah, for me, I think that OCD works as very well for him because, you know, he's a very methodical he's very driven by data and knowing what he's got is the best he can be. Coming up next, we look at Jamie's next step, triple 8 team principal. We haven't had the we haven't had time and it's for next year. But a good sit down to really plan out for the roles and responsibilities of everyone. What specific role Jamie will be doing in the garage?

It's basically the final type that we know people saw here. It was a great way to get the rest of the family. Inside motor sport broadcast on community radio and online at sport radio dot com dot AU. On this edition of inside supercars, we look at the future for Jamie wing cup as he heads to Beth as this weekend for his final start as a four time driver in the supercars series. While at the moment, I think we're everyone's always sitting in the sitting and waiting to make a decision whether he's going to I suppose one sense go cold Turkey and just get a step away from driving side of it and manage the team. Sort of a challenge. You didn't want to be known as one trick pony. Which is pretty good trick when you're the best driver in history. Yeah, the planets are aligned in terms of what I was thinking of when I needed to be able to step back the timing was appropriate. We hear from Graham wind cup, Roland Dane, Craig lowndes, golf tender, and Scott Gollum. Graham wind cup is the proud uncle, and partly responsible for setting Jamie on his path to greatness. He said that the success his nephew has achieved has been celebrated by more than his family. Everybody, you know, not just family, but close family friends, you know? He's done an incredible thing. To retrieve what he has and he's still like, he's still lucky he's running second in the championship manner he's retirement year. He still puts the thing on Paul. You know, he still throws in some incredible laps. And he still doing very, very well. Like he's stepping out at the top of his game, and I'm sure if Jamie throws head out there, there'd be several teams would love him to come and drive their cars and next couple of years. Scott gollan has justice sister Jamie in his autobiography drive of a lifetime, and he spoke about how Jamie has approached his next chapter. Yeah, absolutely. He was not obsessed, but he saw it as a challenge. He didn't want to be known as one trick pony. He, which is pretty good trick when you're the best at because driver and history, but he was very about the future. He wanted to jump into things and he always talked about his dad. You know, the one way to get his dad to do something is to tell Kelly that he couldn't build that fence over there. So then he'd go and do it. And I think Jamie's a bit the same. At Triple H, Jamie has shared the garage with the most popular driver of all time Craig lands, and now, with one of the most popular kiwi drivers Shane bankers Bergen. Graham wind cup said that Jamie understood the importance of having a strong teammate. When you've got a tough teammate, it raises the level. Like you're always out to boot your teammate. He's the first guy you've got to beat. And, you know, they are great teammates, you know, the team is everything to them. And if Jamie can't win Shane wants to win and vice versa, you know, they are there to have the trip like tires, one, two, as much as possible. And it does. You know, they push each other hard and there's no secrets, you know, I've seen that. There's no secrets with anybody I'm doing this, try this, you know and that's how it really should be. Jamie's first teammate Craig lounge admires many aspects of their relationship. But there has always been that one thing that has stuck in his cruel. But there is some things that Jamie does that used to frustrate me. And I have a laugh about it because it still happens today. We shine, which is basically that, you know, if you've got to be in an appearance at a ten o'clock at 9 59 and 59 seconds, Jamie will then decide to go and go to the function, but it takes, you know, it doesn't have taken over it's going to take 5 minutes to get there. So I hate being like to anything and Jamie was always that person. If I can spend an extra minute looking at data or doing something like that, I'd rather do that than being at a function. So that was probably the frustrating side of Jaime, but as I said, it still happens today and I still have a giggle because now it's happening to shine. David couchy, Jamie's engineer from 2014 to 2020, said it was the relationships at triple 8 that made the team so successful. Oh, look without question, you know, you know, Jamie and of course, Craig, Craig lounge, you know, they were a massive part of that. And those guys, those guys working together, I think their relationship and the respect that both of those guys had for each other on and off the track and of course also the way that Roland, you know, operates the team, like that's a very big part of why Triple H has been so successful in its very almost short history. I mean, it's quite a long history now, but you know, they became successful quite quickly and that definitely flows from the top. And having those two drivers with their with their personalities, again, Jamie, it's so easy to get along with. Don't have to even mention it about Craig lounge, and he's kind of bubbly, happy personality. So, you know, it was just a really awesome environment to be in and everybody just was able to grow and perform at their absolute best. And that's why that was the sort of foundation of a watchable ladies today. God tanda has now joined the team as co driver with wind cups teammate with Shane Ben giz Bergen. He is now finding out firsthand why Triple H has been so successful. All I said to take one day, I'll get you in one of my cars. And I would turn it down. We did a we finally got it down to the endurance races. So,.

"Moves very easily. And we have teased him for years here about when he lived in sanctuary cove, that not wanting to go out of sanctuary cove. So now he lives in Brisbane, so he's ventured north at three kilometers. But I've never thought Jamie would end up overseas. I just didn't think that that's what he ever really wanted to do. Roland Dane says that Jamie changed the way the team went racing, and as an engineering company, they were always looking to find the next edge over the competition. Dane said they were able to find those 1% differences for their drivers. In the drivers that the right lead up to events having the organization of the events themselves structured around what's best for the driver to give the best performance in the car what they have to do various times what they eat and then the environment of the car itself and for instance the Jamie Jamie couldn't operate. As well without say an efficient cool suit system as Craig could so, but when it was clear that we were going to get a better performance from Jamie if we came up with a better call suit design, we became the first people to develop the sort of school suit that you've seen in news over the last decade or so and supercars that dry ice total lost system. Which if you remember a decade or more ago, people just had in there with lumps of lumps of icing that sometimes worked sometimes didn't and et cetera. And so the whole category has cottoned on to the fact that you can actually improve the driver's environment a lot with great cool suit technology. So, yeah, those are areas where Jamie's had a major influence. So what are the traits of a greatest of all time? Mark dutton explains the ability to win starts with the competitiveness and the desire to win. He wants to win, he believes he can win. And he does it in a measured way. So it's very, very rare that Jamie gets a 50 50 passing move on. Yeah, he's very he's very, very accurate with what he does, whether it's setting up the car, whether it's the ergonomics of the car is very particular with as well. So I think that that helps massively. It means he's keeping that cool head. He's making good decisions in the car. He's putting the effort in. It's one of those things that he's one for the viewers at home to check out. Look at the drivers getting out of the car after the race. A really good one example of it is tanzan this year when Jamie and Shane came one to at the first weekend. And they drove away from the field. They almost lapped the whole field. And you could see how the drivers and even some other drivers come in Archie. Those boys are doing it easy. They can have so good. But if you look at up and down pit lane, when the drivers got out, which drivers were the most wrecked with a tired and it was Jamie and Shane and it's not because they're lacking fitness. Quite the opposite. They're super fit. And they every single lap was full focus and full attention and they weren't all quality laps. That's, yeah, that's risk reward is not needed. But they were at such a high level of concentration and performance. That's why they drove away from the field. And the other drivers who actually got out looking fresh were not putting in the effort, so efforting equals results out. And I'm not singling anyone out apart from our guys, but I think it's a really interesting thing to look when the drivers get out. And the ones who are fresh as a daisy. And going as fast, are they related? I think so. So, I mean, the fact that Jamie has always has always given a 100% in and out of the car. That's what makes him a champion. That's what champions do is you don't give up and it doesn't matter. Not giving up doesn't mean you're throwing haymakers to try and do a pass at the end of the race for first. That's not on. That's different. That's not giving up. Not giving up is putting in full concentration, maximum effort, the whole way through, even when you're hurting, even your tired and then improving next time. So you're less tired, less fatigued, so you can do an even better job. So for me, that's a thing that has said Jamie apart and Shane these days. You can see he does that amazingly well also. Roland Dane. When he had a driver like Craig who's to be honest, just ready to roll with whatever turns up on the day, if you tell him the cars left hand drive, he'll just say, no problem get in and drive that. Craig lounge. Any time that there's a small change whether even a button on the steering wheel, he'll have to sit there and analyze it for half a day to make sure he memorizes where it's at and what's going on. And for me, it's just been yeah, I just adapt to it. Like, I've always adapted to things throughout my career. So, yeah, Jamie and I definitely work as complete differences in that regard. And as I said, he reminds me a lot of the marks gave of what we will see most. So he made us as a business and as a team focused much more. On what was good for the driver and of course, because he produced results to back that up when we did the right thing in his eyes and change our focus then because he delivered the results and we all bought into it. If he hadn't, then we wouldn't have done. But yeah, my sort of my instincts as it were probably a little bit more along the lines of the old days of drivers were lightbulbs and plugged.

"Ticket. Graham win cap says perhaps, this is more folklore than fact. Sounds like a good story, doesn't it? Yeah, look, I'm not sure about that. But maybe I should ask him for the money. I gave him for a refund for the F 8. But I'm not too sure of it. But I know that Kevin Murphy was trying to renegotiate with Jamie at that stage to stay with tasman. And Jamie got the opportunity to go and talk to Roland and and Mike and the others that Triple H, he thought that would be a great team to go forward with and he went up there and had a great interview with him. You know, there were other people that had been interviewed for the job, but Ronald said before the interviewers over were you, which guy was going to drive out there? Coming up next, we look at the misunderstood champion. Sad May in a sense of the fans, look, I know that they're loyal, they're very proud and they're very aligned with personalities. He didn't go Kara to be famous, you encouraged him to draw rice cars. We hear from some of his closest peers and partners, Roland Dane, Craig lowndes, mock dutton, and David couchy. You know, he does all he's talking on the race circuit. Each week joined the inside motor sport team as they look at all the news from across Australia and around the world. And every year, obviously, Jack is to go on prey and I just remind myself of his part in starting the path to safer cars dissecting the sport with interviews and news and opinion.

One of the most disappointing aspects of wind cup's career is that instead of celebrating his success, some motor sport spectators became hostile towards him. Famously booing the champion after he had one major events. Roland Dane provided his perspective on that part of Jaime's career. Whenever I'm shooting the breeze with my peer group and my Friends, et cetera in Europe and they inevitably say, or what are the best and worst things about being in Australia compared with being in the UK, for instance? And clearly the weather and friendliness of most people and the sort of attitude to life in Australia which can be so positive. And then you got the negatives and I always say, well, number one is speed limits. Number two is bureaucracy and nanny state approach. And number three is tall poppy syndrome. And Jamie has suffered from a lot of ignorant people giving him a hard time over many years because of his success. And unfortunately, I see that reflected many times in Australian sport. The good thing is that normally the passage of time deals with that. And I think that Jamie will be respected as he deserves by almost everyone. In the fullness of time. But in the short term, the there are people who resent his success for whatever reason. it's amplified these days by social media. In a way, which I think a lot of us have come to realize that undermines the meaning of social media comes on social media and quite repulsive at times. So Jamie's been exposed to that in a way which some of his predecessors haven't been. But in the fullness of time, the respect will be there from I would suggest pretty much everyone who's ever followed the sport, let alone been involved in it. And deservingly so. Craig lounge remembers these situations clearly. Oh, yeah, absolutely. And sometimes not only Jamie, there was other drivers that got that treatment. And it saddened me in a sense of the fans, look, I know that they're loyal, they're very proud and they're very aligned with personalities. But at the same time, it's motor racing. We've got to celebrate whether it's afford or a Holden or whether it's a James Courtney or a Jamie wing cup. So for me, that was always a little bit of a sad moment because of people just emotions probably take over. And I felt for Janet because you know he put his heart and soul into what he had done. And winning races is something that we'd all strive for. I think that because of his personality, again, the marks gave, I'd even say the Marcus Ambrose. They sort of weren't really fan favorites because of just the way they or their attitude and the way they approach the race weekends. And it's a shine because they fans of us not seeing the results of what this person, Jamie had created or achieved that they just sort of seeing him as a personality and really, as you said, it didn't really matter to the fans where you finish. It was just the personalities that they'd wanted to connect with. Laos said being the most popular driver of the modern era made the relationship with the fans more difficult. It was hard for Jamie, because as far as their popularity, but at the same token, it's just trying to think of analogy. Probably center and Prost in the same time a Formula One, like when you've got in a sense to heavy weights, but then we've got two different personalities. It always is a different. So for Jamie, hold on, he's results will always stand up and be shown in history of how many championships he's won and races and everything else. I said, yeah, he wasn't one of the popular drivers and public eye. But that's just, you know, again, that's just unfortunately the way that he's personality is. David couch he noted that the negative opinions and conduct of fans never impacted on Jamie's behaviors around the team. In all the time I've known Jamie I've never seen any big flashy sort of statements or articles or anything like that. And, you know, he absolutely lets does all he's talking on the race circuit. And I think that's a really, that's something that I'm, you know, really sort of love about his personality. You know, I think talks talks cheap in any sport and certainly in motor sport and what actually matters is what you do on track and the results you get. And that's probably what, you know, I mean, there's no question. He's the greatest and he's managed to consistently perform an unbelievably high level for a very long period of time. And that's what is very, very hard to do, you know? It's hard enough to win one championship. You know, very few can back up and win two. You know, to win to win 7 is almost unbelievable, but the other thing I think that you can't sort of brush over is the fact that if he hasn't won the championship, he's pretty much been second. You know, every other year. So, you know, he just really hasn't had hasn't had a bad year. And I think that's why he's, you know, without question, one of the greatest of all time. Tim miles employed Jamie at tasman motor sport, then later became a co owner at triple 8. He said the public didn't understand Jamie's focus. He's a very genuine character. He didn't go to be famous you encouraged him to draw a race cars and he's still the same and he realizes that obligation that you have as a sports startup to be accessible to the public, et cetera. But he goes writing the race as and so he sort of doesn't pretend to be anything else. And I think that's part of where the tractors come from that you mentioned. That is a very, very, very genuine person. Scott, Colin, found wind cups approach to be laser focused, which was developed in him from a young age. Had this attitude of how to win and he wanted to win and he wanted to be a perfect of what he did. And he only ever looked at so you mentioned go cat, so or I'm going to be the best go Carter, but he needed a lot of formula Ford, and then that was the logical step, and then it was, oh, I'm going to be the best formula Ford driver. And then he always focused on what was in front of him rather than the big picture, which I found fascinating. And then supercars was the logical next step. And then he went about trying to be the best at that. But you started right, I think he attitude and these principles were set very, very early, and it was clear. He wanted to be he was a racer by blood and he wanted to be a racer and that's all one to do. And he wanted to be the best he could. Craig said nothing went unnoticed. And his approach to racing also heightened the differences between the two men. Yes, as opposed to just one of those things for me, I'll visualize enjoyed the support of as I said, I've always just tried to be me in the sense of understanding also that the sport has to have fans and that for me was always a very important to share their stories and share Tom with them. No different to what Peter Brock did. And I think that Peter and I were very similar in our mannerisms. And the way that we operate as personalities, I take a lot of energy out of spans and talking to fans and I think that again, if you look back to my career, anytime it was going bad in the sense of inside the race car or our performance was bad. Otherwise go out and talk to fans because it made me happy. So for Jamie, that would be the opposite. If things were going bad, he would basically retreat and look at data and not want to do anything sponsor related anything just so he could focus on how to turn things around. So yeah, we were very as I said chalk and cheese. But at the end of the day, it worked for both of us. I think I've seen a bit of a change in Jamie, especially in his last year now that since he's made his announcement to retire or step down as a full-time driver, he's now become relaxed, he's enjoying the racing. It's almost gone full circle for him. So there's a little bit of a difference. But at the same token, as I said, I've always just enjoyed it. He has not got to say Jamie's been a thorn in my side because probably 7 8 years because I think I finished second to him about them many times. So he's a champion in his own right. We've gone head to head. You know, for championships. And so the beauty about it though is it just has worked for the team. So that's the ultimate thing has been a huge team. It was often speculation about wind cup's future, with rumors in the press that he was looking to head overseas. But Roland never once gave them any credence. I was 95% sure that Jamie wasn't going to go anywhere outside Australia. He's, yeah, he's not somebody who upticks and.

"A little bit of caution in his voice thinking, oh my God, okay, are we really going to do this is Jamie going to, you know, not I press the throttles half a percent too much and picture at the post sort of thing. So you can hear the trepidation Craig's voice. It was it was a great moment. That party, Becky, you don't know whether he's hitting you up or whether it was actually legit, but he was generally genuinely honest about what he wanted and who was happy to create a one to finish, which for me was one of the biggest memories that I'll take out of being his teammate. Mark dutton because we're in such a strong position at that stage, you can clearly just be enjoying it. And it's nothing's about to go wrong. Obviously it can always, but you're really enjoying the moment. So you had total faith that Jamie would do it obviously it was a spectacular result for the team, but yeah, Craig's voice at the time is something burned into my memory as one of those little special moments that maybe not everyone got to hear or see, but no, that was an amazing race. Yeah, we probably could have gone head to head in those closing laps and potentially both of us might not have finished. Roland Dane. It was very adult, particularly as he'd lost the win at Philip island a few weeks before with an issue when he and stevia and should have should have walked that race. So for Jamie to realize that the importance of this finish to the team was mature sensible to me did the right thing by everyone here, whether it was the team as a whole or whether it was the partners holding on Vodafone in particular on the day that and that producing producers imagery that stays stays around forever. Which helps underline a feat which he had only been done twice before and both times in a far less competitive environment. 45 plus people at each group. Two championships. This path is well. So everyone at the time, it's just a question. This big diet is fantastic. But did his engineer want him to go for broke and take the wind? Now we had our time to during the race to be the car in front and we weren't. So at that stage, now you're just happy that the moments happening. And you're just enjoying it and really trying to absorb it as much as you can without celebrating early yields. You never want to celebrate early. But occasionally you do try to enjoy the moment as it's happening, not just after it happens. So, no, I was quite happy with him coming in second there. Right before the start of the 2012 season, Jamie's father passed away. It was a significant loss to the still young man and just wakes later he had to get back out on the track. Roll and dine reflect on his clips or performance. His win in Adelaide in 2012 a few days after his father died. Was something that I was incredibly proud of him. I mean, yeah, the team helped him do it and everything, but Jamie drove the wheels off the car to on a different strategy to everyone else. Pretty much everyone else. And beat will Davison was half a lap to go. That was an extraordinary performance of his on that day, which I think the whole team was proud to be a part of. For him, I always do refer to his drive after his father passed as one of the most amazing ever. He pushed so hard. We weren't at the front at all. We took the ultimate strategy and the strategy we took in that race. It was a safety car came out and everyone had to ultra conserved to the end. But where you went for the option of that, I would flat out here. We're gonna let you do what you do best, which is go fast, lap after lap. So we came in, took the extra stop, but he had to he had to do effectively Coley lapse every single lap in Adelaide's conditions which as you know are always always difficult. It's always up there at the start of the year, et cetera. So that was that was one of the most special ones. Obviously, the circumstances around it. Yeah, the fact that what it just happened because it was so fresh that he could come out and do that and that we took the hard option, which was not the wind or been at one, but it was the night where we're going to you can win this if you do what you do best, just go ultra fast lap after that. Be consistent. Don't put a single foot wrong. Don't make a single mistake with everything that that's been going on lightly. And these conditions, that's always a stand up. Work out a story of what the ultimate race is. It was somewhat exactly what happened, you know, had to stop more than most and you have great car speed and get there right at the end. It was phenomenal, I hope everyone that was here enjoyed it. And as I say, it was probably one of my best performances. In 2014, there was a change at triple 8. Win cups engineer Mark dutton stepped up in the team manager role and young engineer David couchy moved up to rice engineer. It wasn't.

"Basically created when Jamie came along and we first tested him in December O 5, I think it was. We did a first test at queenston raceway. We could see straight away that Jamie actually had more potential more speed than we than we thought. Mark dutton. Particularly at the time, he's feedback. And I say at the time, which I'll get to. So he's feedback was amazing. And the tires we have the amount of tires everyone had. It was the same for everyone, was nowhere near as generous as these days. So you're constantly doing practice sessions on rubbish tires. So you had to be able to extrapolate what the car would be like when you got on good tires. And you'd be you'd be running your practice sessions and trying to make improvements with the car. And Jamie was amazing with these feedback and the amount of information he could absorb doing lapse. It was really spectacular. He would go out and say we'd do a three lap run and he'd come back in the practice session and dial in or whatever and he'd he'd talk you through every single corner in multiple stages of every single lap. But then he'd also be able to say what other cars around him were doing better or worse than him. So it was just phenomenal, the amount of information he was able to absorb and process. Not only of what he was doing in his cow was doing, but what others were doing while going full flat out. So that's that for me was one of the big things that set him apart was just that that information capacity that he had. Kevin fitzsimmons is the operations manager for Dunlop tires. He has observed drivers through 40 years of involvement in the sport. Spend a lot of time in the 90s lead IDs and sort of in the 90s and everything development with paid a baroque, and he was another one that could just get into their autopilot mode. I'm on the door and just just punch numbers there every single left on everything, but to be able to relay the feedback cleansing was also good at the time in recent years was absolutely exceptional to body the feedback that we needed to hear. And the pain personal, you know, I had all these and put the category head on and do it for the better of the category and everything will solve that and I'll be eternally grateful for everything he ever did for us through. First race mating for win cut and his new team was the clips all 500. Lounge went on Saturday, but it was wind cup who took the win on Sunday and his first clips or title. I remember coming out and winning the first round and, you know, basically, again, putting his name back in lights because he'd obviously had an opportunity with Gary Rogers. And that didn't go well for him. Roland Dane. Craig got tied up in a bit of a messy situation, I think from memory. Loss of front special or something. Jamie benefited from having the focus on him. So on the Sunday in particular where he could then show his speed and win the race. And that certainly set him up. Jamie spoke to inside supercars on Sunday Night after that race. Fantastic to get my first win with my first race with Triple H, fantastic achievement for the team with Craig winning yesterday and the self winning today of being involved with the development and the hard work they're putting over the last three months. And it's just great to go at hard work paid off. After the high of clips all, he had some challenges through the year. You know, it took him another year or so to get rid of some of the mistakes that he was making to understand how to race in the category better. And of course, he had a bit of a target on his back for some of the more senior drivers who saw this young upstart coming along and getting a plum seat. I think it wasn't until sometime in O 7 where he really showed to everyone else the potential we saw. Craig lounge. So for me, it was a fascinating time, but watching he was always very quick. He might some mistakes earlier in the early stages, driving mistakes, which is just a learning curve. But at the end of the day, the fundamentally had the speed, he adapted to basically my style of driving because that was the car was so more set up to the way that I'd liked it and wanted it. He adapted to that and got it sorted. Mark dutton. He got the first win, as you said, when he started, but then it was a bit dry for the rest of 2006 apart from bathurst, which is obviously a big one. To win bathers that year was something very special for me because of the passing of Peter Brock, but it really cemented Jamie's position within the team and I'm sure Rollins decision to hire him. Congratulations, Mike. Very much. Not a fantastic feeling. That was excellent all weekend. Craig is Craig lens. He's just the one of the best out there and 5 wins 5 round wins this year to fantastic effort. Congratulations to you've learned a lot from him. It's kind of as cool as ever. I'm just prepared for the Ford fence. Congratulations. The rise of Jamie win cup was not without setbacks, and the team suffered a major one at the start of 2007 as Roland dayne explains. It would have been earlier in O 7, but tragically, the number one on his car number one mechanic committed suicide on New Year's Day in O 7. And that had a huge negative impact on the team for a while there. In fact, we had some very good help in that period from Gary Coleman. And..

"He has this attitude of how to win and he wanted to win and he wanted to be perfect at what he did when Jamie came along and we first tested him. We could see straight away that Jamie actually had potential more speed than we than we thought. And Jamie was amazing with his feedback and the amount of information he could absorb doing laps. It was really spectacular. Without a drive for the 2006 season, Jamie wing cut flew from Victoria to Queensland to meet with triple-A management, Roland Dane talks about that fateful day. He did fly up short notice to talk to me after bathurst and 2005. And he had a sit down with me had met a couple of the key engineers as well. And yeah, basically made it clear that he'd do whatever's necessary to get to get his bum in the in the seat of one of our cars. He. His motivation was clearly there from the start. His hunger was there. And he was the only one of the three people that I was seriously considering at the time. Who didn't immediately ask about money? Triple H Lee driver was Craig lounge, the most popular driver in Sue because history, and the man that Rowland was building the team around. So when he first came to the team, he was enthusiastic. He was probably a little bit Shaw as well. But his enthusiastic and really keen to learn and develop as a driver, like we all were when we were first getting an opportunity with the major team like that. Rollins said that the team was looking for a number two driver for one important reason. You were looking for a number two driver could double up as you're allowed to in those days. For the enduro races and give us the best possible chance of winning winning the battles 1000. And we already had that stage a number one driver in Craig. So yes, we wanted somebody who had the potential to grow into a major force, but that particular point in time at the end of O 5 is about putting together the strongest possible team for bassist 1000. Craig lounge. I wasn't involved in the actual decision making of sawing Jamie, but I know at the time that role and did make that point that we're looking for a teammate that was in the same sort of heart stature as me and really that the focus for role and from my understanding was more so better. And that was obviously a race that has enticed role under come to Australia in the first place. So that was his goal was to put a super team together to get the result of bathurst and hopefully a championship. Roland explains how Jamie appeared on his radar. To be honest, there was nothing nothing at GRM that drew drew me to him. Partly because the most of the time he was at GRM was just before I was in Australia full time. But that was the way very aware of his formula Ford track record. And also at tasman, we'd watched him provide exemplary support to their number one driver at the time Jason Richards in the enduro races at sandown and bathurst. And at the time, my principal goal, then was to try and win our first bathurst. And we needed somebody who'd be great support for Craig lands. So, you know, those those were the key factors. Couch he saw that Jamie had some qualities that made it obvious to the team that he would succeed. Jaime's very easy to get along with. I mean, you know, we got along very well from the beginning. I actually knew him from when again he drove for tasman. Motor sport, which is sort of what lands Val smash sort of morph them to invent I already knew him before call it. I got to Triple H you know and look so yeah, we've always had a very close relationship as sort of friends more than more than sort of even work colleagues as such. So that made the sort of jump really easy, I guess from that point of view Mark dutton was already well established at triple 8. However, the new young gun caused a few changes in the engineering structure. It always race engineer the year before with Steve ellery. But because we had a young up and coming talent in Jaime, ludo ludo wanted to put the engineering race engineering hat back on. So I was demoted from race engineer to Dave engineer on that car. It was actually probably one of my nicest end of year performance reviews I've ever had. Because I was getting demoted there actually being nice to me and I even got a pay rise, which was, yeah, two tenths of not a lot. It's still not a lot, but pay rise is still a payroll. So yeah, finally enough it was my demotion, which was my most pleasant end of the year of you today. Craig lounge said Jamie had an approach to how he went racing, which he had seen in another successful champion. I look at Jamie and I see a lot of Mark scaping him in the sense of his mannerisms, the way that he operated in a sense of as I said, the data, all that side of it, he worked extremely hard behind the scenes with just all the small things, even to a point where still today at the beginning of every season, you know, our first test day, Jamie has to run in 5 sets of shoes. And he will never go to a racetrack with a brand new set of shoes. You'll always have to have run them, or use them. He's against he's done it, but he's against different color schemes of one off color schemes at rice weekend halfway through it because again for him. It's a mental thing in the sense of or psychological thing to change. David couchy do you work very hard, you know, behind the scenes on himself. You know, I mean, you know, not just his fitness, but he's preparation and approach to the race weekend. You know, and each driver, each driver does approach that that differently. But yeah, I just remember always remember a real real attention to detail and just not leaving any stone unturned, basically. Mark dutton was never afraid to ask a question even if it might come across as silly or obvious. So which is great, yeah. It's things that you encourage your kids to do you encourage everyone to do. But he would do it and he continues to ask those questions. So that, for me, that willingness and want to learn and improve that that was the standout from day dot. Craig lounge. He really literally understood took on board the settings of the car, the way that the team operated the philosophy of what the team had. Had.

"Jamie couldn't operate as well without say an efficient cool suit system as Craig could so, but when it was clear that we were going to get a better performance from Jamie if we came up with a better call suit design, we became the first people to develop the source of school suit that you've seen in new center the last decade or so in supercars that dry ice total lost system. Which, if you remember a decade or more ago, people just had in there with lumps of lumps of icing that sometimes worked sometimes didn't and et cetera. And so the whole category has cottoned on to the fact that you can actually improve the driver's environment a lot with great cool suit technology. So, yeah, those are areas where Jamie's had a major influence. So what are the traits of a goat? Marked up and explains. The ability to win starts with the competitiveness and the desire to win. He wants to win, he believes he can win. And he does it in a measured way. So it's very, very rare that Jamie gets a 50 50 passing move on. Yeah, he's very he's very, very accurate with what he does, whether it's setting up the car, whether it's the ergonomics of the car is very particular with as well. So I think that that helps massively. It means he's keeping that cool head. He's making good decisions in the car. He's putting the effort in. It's one of those things that he's one for the viewers at home to check out. Look at the drivers getting out of the car after the race. A really good one example of it is tanzan this year when Jamie and Shane came one to at the first weekend. And they drove away from the field. They almost lapped the whole field. And you could see how the drivers and even some other drivers had come at Archie's those boys are doing it easy. Their cars are so good. But if you look at up and down pip line, when the drivers got out, which drivers were the most wrecked with a tired and it was Jamie and Shane and it's not because they're lacking fitness. Quite the opposite. They're super fit. And they every single lap was full focus and full attention and they weren't all elapsed. That's yeah, that's risk for reward is not needed, but they were at such a high level of concentration and performance. That's why they drove away from the field. And the other drivers who actually got out looking fresh were not putting in the effort, so efforting equals results out. And I'm not singling anyone out apart from our guys, but I think it's a really interesting thing to look when the drivers get out. And the ones who are fresh as a daisy and going as fast yeah, are they related? I think so. So, I mean, the fact that Jamie has always has always given a 100% in and out of the car. That's what makes him a champion. That's what champions do is you don't give up and it doesn't matter. Not giving up doesn't mean you're throwing haymakers to try and do a pass at the end of the race for first. That's not on. That's different. That's not giving up. Not giving up is putting in full concentration, maximum effort, the whole way through. Even when you're hurting, even your tired and then improving next time. So you're less tired, less fatigued, so you can do an even better job. So for me, that's a thing that has said Jamie apart and Shane these days. You can see he does that amazingly well also. He's role and Dane. When he had a driver like Craig who's to be honest, just ready to roll with whatever turns up on the day, if you tell him the cars, left hand drive, he'll just say no problem get in and drive that. Craig said nothing went unnoticed by Jamie. Any time that there's a small change whether even a button on the steering wheel, he'll have to sit there and analyze it for half a day to make sure he memorizes where that and what's going on. And for me, it's just been yeah, I'll just adapt to it like I've always adapted to things throughout my career. So yeah, Jamie and I definitely work as complete differences in that regard. And as I said, he reminds me a lot of the marks gave of what we will see most. Roland Danes says that Jamie changed the way the team went racing and there's an engineering company, they were always looking to find the next edge over the competition. So he made us as a business and as a team focused much more. On what was good for the driver and of course, because he produced results to back that up when we did the right thing in his eyes and change our focus then because he delivered the results and we all bought into it. If he hadn't, then we wouldn't have done. Jamie was able to change the way Roland looked at racing drivers and how he approached the driving process. My instincts, as it were, probably a little bit more along the lines, the old days of drivers were lightbulbs and you plug them in and take them out. And that's developed a lot over the last 15 15 plus years to provide the drivers with the best possible environment in which to apply their trade. So Jamie's been a massive massive part of that. Craig lounge. He'd OCD. There's no doubt about how he is routine driven, but he's also OCD. So as I said, he has to wear any boots. He's rose boots at the start of the year because that's just for him at works. He's the only driver in pit Lana puts basically those boots. I suppose you can call them on every time he gets in or out of the car because again, if they hear him, that's just a routine and something that works for him. So yeah, for me, I think that OCD works as very well for him because he's a very methodical he's very driven by doctor and knowing what he's got is the best he can be. Jamie, wind comes focus and dedication to his craft has enabled him to elevate himself above the ordinary and into the elite or Australian motor sport. And he will be a person and others will say I saw the time that Jamie did. This is a real legacy of Jamie winker. The inside supercars is produced by thunder media.

"Supercars. On this show, we consider our Jamie wind cups focus on his performance was misinterpreted by many outside the inner segment of supercars. That May in the sense of the fans look, I know that they're loyal. They're very proud and they're very aligned with personality. He didn't get tired to be famous, you encouraged him to drive race cars. We hear from some of his closest peers and partners rolling down Craig lowndes, Mark dutton, and David couchy. You know, he does all these talking on the race circuit. One of the disappointing aspects of win cap's career is instead of celebrating success. Some motor sports spectators became possible towards it. Famously booing the champion R three one major events. Roland Dane provided his perspective on that part of Jamie's career and the Australian way. Whenever I'm shooting the breeze with my fear group and my Friends, et cetera in Europe and they inevitably say, or what are the best bets and worst things about being in Australia compared with being in the UK for instance. And there's clearly the weather and friendliness of most people and that sort of attitude to life in Australia which can be so positive. And then you got the negatives and I always say, well, number one is speed limits. Number two is bureaucracy and nanny state approach. And number three is tall poppy syndrome. And Jamie has suffered from a lot of ignorant people giving him a hard time over many years because of his success. And unfortunately, I see that reflected many times in Australian sport the good thing is that normally the passage of time. Deals with that. And I think that Jamie will be respected as he deserves by almost everyone. In the fullness of time. But in the short term, the there are people who resent his success for whatever reason. Which is a shame, but it's amplified these days by social media. In a way, which I think a lot of us have come to realize that undermines the meaning of social media comes unsocial media and quite repulsive at times. So Jamie's been exposed to that in a way, which some of his predecessors haven't been. But in the fullness of time, the respect will be there from I would suggest pretty much everyone who's ever followed the sport, let alone been involved in it. And deservingly so. Craig lounge remember these situations clearly. Oh, yeah, absolutely. And sometimes not only Jamie, there was other drivers that got that treatment. And it saddened me in a sense of the fans, look, I know that they're loyal, they're very proud and they're very aligned with personalities. But at the same time, it's motor racing. We've got to celebrate whether it's afford or a Holden or whether it's a James Courtney or a Jamie win cup. So for me, that was always a little bit of a sad moment because of people just emotions probably take over. And I felt for Jackie because he put his heart and soul into what he had done and winning races is something that we'd all strive for. I think that because of his personality, again, the marks gave, I'd even say the Marcus Ambrose. They sort of weren't really fan favorites because of just the way they all their attitude and the way they approach the race weekends. And it's a shine because they fans of us not seeing the results of what this person, Jamie had created or achieved that they just sort of sing in here's a personality and really, as you said, it didn't really matter the fans, where you finish, it was just the personalities that they wanted to connect with. Fans said being the most popular driver of the modern era made the relationship with the fans more difficult. It was hard for Jamie because I suppose about popularity, but at the same token, it's just trying to think of analogy. Probably center and Prost in the same time a Formula One, like when you've got in a sense to heavy weights, but then we've got two different personalities. It always is a different. So for Jimmy, although he's results with always stand up and be shown in history of how many championships he's won and races and everything else that, yeah, he wasn't one of the popular drivers and public eye. But that's just, you know, again, that's just unfortunately the way that he's personality is. David couch, he noted that the negative opinions and conduct offense never impacted on Jamie's behavior around the team in all the time I've known Jamie. I've never seen any big, you know flashy sort of statements or articles or anything like that. And, you know, he absolutely lets does all he's talking on the race circuit. And I think that's a really, that's something that I'm, you know, really sort of love about his personality. I think talks talks cheap. In any sport and certainly in motor sport and what actually matters is what you do on track and the results get. And that's probably what, you know, I mean, there's no question. He's the greatest. And he's managed to consistently perform an unbelievably high level for a very long period of time. And that's what is very, very hard to do, you know? It's hard enough to win one championship. You know, very few can back up and win two. You know, to win to win 7 is almost unbelievable, but the other thing I think that you can't brush over is the fact that if he hasn't won the championship, he's pretty much been second. You know, every other year. So, you know, he just really hasn't had hasn't had a bad year. And I think that's why he's, you know, without question, one of the greatest of all time. Two miles employed Jamie at tasman motor sport, then later became co owner Triple H, he said the public didn't understand Jamie's focus. He's a very genuine character. He didn't go car racing to be famous he went carras in the broad race cars and he's still the same and he realizes that obligation that you have as a sports startup to be accessible to the public, et cetera. But he goes writing the rice casm. And so he sort of doesn't retain to be anything else. And I think that's part of where the tractors come from, but you mentioned. That is a very, very, very genuine person. Scott Geller provided his observations on how he.

"I don't think he actually gave me the reason why and I went away and I came back and pulling to say, dive on the way back and I said, Jamie, isn't going to drive next year, you know? And it was very disappointing for him. Fitting in hindsight, something that was probably good for him. Because he worked at finding another drive. Very hot. And never never took his eyes off. He wanted to do. And, you know, he was then at tasman. But Jamie's natural abilities would not be lost to the sport. In 2004, win cup drove a Larry Perkins in the endurance races before returning to the main series in 2005 with tasman motor sport. Tim miles of Potter, the team and explained how he joined the tasman motor sport team. He darn pocketed a test tag with us. And Wally's story who's nobody's full came worrying up to Kevin I said, he just saw that right quickly before somebody else works out how quick he is. So for many years, I enjoyed taking the Mickey out of Garret Rogers about how caring at him go and first year Kevin drove for us. We and Jason Richards were in nearly one breakfast. So Andrew had taken the Mickey out of Gary Rogers about that. And Roland dynamically enjoyed taking the Mickey out of my hair. We let him go and pass when and Triple H put it. So he's. How would you would it? He was only with us for 12 months. And he left us because he knew that he needed to have a better team of veterans around and then we could give him a tasman and he wanted to first race the Triple H when he went there and I've got a text from him. I see him at the congratulations. Thanks. And then I'm going to take some rolling down saying thank you for handing him on. He was cheap. So it was interesting to see how much confidence Jamie had and fighting himself when he was such a young boy. Unfortunately, the tasman team had plans which would not include Jamie moving forward. We were trying to get the team to a level where it was justified Murph's signature. And so we were trying to keep contracts to short periods. I said 12 months, rather than longer periods. And we were also trying to get Holden support for the drivers and harden were very, very supportive of Jason and Jamie on their books. And to be quarantined with Jamie Cameron had a conversation with Kevin Murphy about wanting a longer contract et cetera, et cetera and Kyiv said Jamie if you've got an opportunity to get under supply. You should do it because we're not building this around you. And I'll give you a better opportunity. And came to the right thing by Jamie and Italian Latin. And if Johnny hadn't, if there hadn't been available to Jamie, we would have definitely saw him, but I think both Kevin and I understood that we were funding the tasman together from a bunch of kiwis and it was about promoting kiwi talent and for that reason. Jamie was a stopgap for us as silly as that sales now and put all the success here. Next, the celebrated story of a young driver who was hoping to stay in the sport began. The story goes, Jamie flew to Queensland to meet with Roland Dane without the funds for a return ticket. Graham wind gaps is perhaps this is more folklore than fact. It's like a good story, doesn't it? Yeah, look, I'm not sure about that. But maybe I should ask you for the money. I gave him a refund for the F 8. But I'm not too sure of it, but I know that Kevin Murphy was trying to renegotiate with Jamie at that stage to stay with tasman. And Jamie got the opportunity to go and talk to all of the and Mike and the others that Triple H, he thought that would be a great team to go forward with and he went up there and had a great interview with him. You know, there were other people that had been interviewed for the job, but rather than sit before the interview was over you, which I was trying to drive out there. On an expiratory look at the rise and rise of Triple H new star and how Jamie winker became the goat. The inside supercars is produced by thunder media.

I must say I enjoy a friendship with guests and have done this some years and I have a lot of admiration for her. I know of the studies, the law and all the things that she does. But Roland, you've also opened up a fascinating year for us to look forward to in 2022 and beyond with a new young driver and new young CEO and team principal. It's an amazing time and you certainly have left the legacy in our sport. Does that will long continue? Thank you so much for your time today and thank you for bringing in a level of professionalism to this country and to our sport that we hadn't seen before. Thank you. Appreciate it. People involved in Triple H that I met enormously pleased by how was very pleased when Ian Harrison invited me and I went back to the triple-A bikes in England and saw the team there. It's been wonderful to be around your team and I can still remember that very first weekend when completed you were competing at basses.

"Welcome to entire service cars, Chinese Wednesday gravel and we're talking today with one of the instigators of the men behind the scenes nowadays more Roland dying of Triple H, regenerating. Welcome to the show. Roll on again. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for having me. Rollin, it would be rude not to ask you to reflect on your time in this what do you reflect on your years at triple-A in being part of the supercar circus? Would take me quite a long time to do that justice Craig, but. Honestly, an awful lot of pride for what we've done at Triple H over the last 18 years. And continue to do both on track and off track and the relationships with people. Those who work here or elsewhere in the motor sport community. And I look back on all of that with pride and satisfaction, but also in the knowledge that the Triple H has been a commercial success and we're not somebody's plaything. We're not hobby farming. The business has to stand or fall on the same two feet. And has always had two. And so we have to we have to work very hard to do that. We can't just bring somebody and ask for a sub. So, to be able to do that, of course you have to be able to win. Because commercial success comes from winning. And winning leads to commercial success. And that's true in sport generally, but it's certainly true in motor sport. So, yeah, I look back and reflect on the fact that we have a business which is now owned by a couple of highly capable young people with a well established entrepreneur in the background who said the other day that the most pleasing aspect of him dying into Triple H and him being Tony Quinn is that he's never built both a business that's been in good shape. He's always bought them in poor shape and done something with them. So it's quite an education for him. But he's brought a fully functioning viable commercial business in the sport, which is unfortunately more unusual than it should be. So I take a lot of pride and satisfaction from that aspect of my time here as well as being able to achieve my ambitions that really come from very early age of being able to win bathurst 1000. Not just once, but 8 times plus a 12 hour. So I feel huge satisfaction from that alone. Having long watch Jimmy and many other drivers over years in the garage after a rice win or rice flour, I believe that Jamie has an attitude that if he does what he does at the end of it, the consequent should be that he wins. Do you see that in his character? This must deeper than that is what the essence of the team. If we do a good job, then we should win. And if we don't do a good job, we don't deserve to. So and Jamie's a part of that that we when we do the best job we can, then if we've done that with minimal mistakes, then the best job we're capable of, then we should win. And Jamie is a part of that of that thinking as well. I imagine Roland that last weekend you must have had your heart jumping out of your chest when your daughter was standing up there on the 250th round of a championship with your two drivers to have her there at that moment of time I see that she's made comments about what a proud moment for her it was, but it must have been an extraordinary for you to have your child to have taken up a position as she has tremendous moment for you. Yeah, but she wouldn't be there if she wasn't any good. And yeah, she's had to set to work and justify her her position as hard as anyone, if not harder. So yes, I mean, that only adds to the satisfaction if you like from seeing that. But yeah, seeing her up there is satisfying. Especially marking 250 events for the team in the soup because championship. But yeah, she got an incredible worst work ethic as her sister has as well. And so I'm pleased to see her achieving,.

"The final race of the Sydney supercars cap has been completed with shame van gisbert and taking the Sydney title, and in so doing, has also wrapped up the supercars championship with one race left in the calendar. On a Whit Sunday evening, Shane gave his thoughts on his achievement. Yeah, it's obviously still pretty fresh, but it's been an awesome awesome year and obviously some challenges, ups and downs, but yet we've just come here and had a plan with couch in the 97 guys and pretty much executed every rice and was super consistent. And did what we needed to do. It's been awesome year and obviously some challenges early in the year with breaking myself, but the Cosby and fantastic team has always been fantastic. And yeah, just super stuck. Those challenges that shine mentions was he broke his collar bone on a mountain bike accident in March, and had little time to recover before the sand and round. It was pretty tasty Tom. The shoulder will never be the same again, like I got a full time fake ligament in there and that was probably the limiting thing. I think I tested BMW, the Tuesday of sand down and told everyone I was, but I probably wasn't right to drive. I couldn't lift my arm up. High enough, but that got better. Every day. And probably lucky we didn't find the ribs, like I had a lot of pain, but we didn't find that. Because if I had known I had broken ribs, probably wouldn't have been allowed to rice. Kind of worked out well. The Red Bull impul team has always found the Sydney motor sport park layout challenging and it doesn't particularly suit their cars, Shane reflected on overcoming the difficulties of the past four weeks of racing. It's not my favorite track, but is what it is. It's been called that we've been able to come here and been well accommodated by this place and the facilities awesome and it's been very homely for the guys and prepping the cars every week. That's been really cool. And yeah, I appreciate the track doing what they've done to help the series get underway. But yeah, it was its challenges like we're not the fastest around here for years, you know, Scotty's been super quick here. This type of corner and it's not our cars type. You know, we sort of struggled on the long corners. So yeah, qualifying, especially we struggled, but rice pace on my side was always good. We just couldn't qualify well, but yeah, we executed ended up with the most points, which was awesome. The Sunday race at Sydney motor sport park was abandoned due to rain, making the track on drivable Shane Vegas Bergen and his teammate, Jamie wing cup along with dick Johnson racing driver ant on deeper squarely. All spoke about the conditions. And if the decision not to rise was the right one. But you see what happened in the DBS race. Like the guys, it's fine for the guys in front, but from 5th, 6 backwards, you just can't see. And this tall is really good, except for when there's a lot of standing water and it's not a proper wet, but it's an all around kind of wet for the intermediate, I guess, but if it was going in qualifying and everyone was running around after four or 5 laps that would have been fine. But it's just starting the race with the standing water. Would have just been carnage. You know, we can't go back to coins then. And fix a bent car. We just can't go back in the states. So you've got to look at all the factors you can just look at a couple. And make a decision. But there's certainly part of it. Shain said, it's a high speed circuit. Plenty of ah stay down at turn one. We had a bit of a preview with soup two this morning as well. They tried to get going, but that was a disaster. So all factors considered the past debate did an excellent job. Yeah, I always want to go racing. That's sort of what we're here for. That's what we love to do. I had a terrible qualifying session. And then in the end, didn't play the punishment of starting in the back. So that's always a positive, but the end of the day, it's also in a race like that when you're in a bad position, you can sort of bring it back somehow, but we didn't get to say pan out today. In 2022, the Red Bull and pole racing team will undergo many significant changes with 7 time champion Jamie wing cap retiring from full time driving to take over the team principal position vacated by Roland Dane. Venge Bergen's race engineer David county is moving to another team, and he will be joined in the garage by a young upcoming driver named Brock feni. So how is the gears looking forward to these changes? Change is always good and it keeps it keeps it fresh. You know, new teammate next year then the new car the year after that month. Or something happening in the series. So that keeps me excited. You know, I'd love to keep rice in here as long as I can. Following the event in baathist in two weeks time, shame will officially become a two time supercars champion. He said the realization of his achievement will not sink in for a while. But it's fulfilling to obtain the supercars crown again. It's awesome. You know, it's my life. Dream, my life goal and, you know, when the first one and just wanted to do it again and now, all I want to do is win it again. It's an awesome feeling. And knowing with your group of guys, you know, not just the guys on my car, but the whole team, how we've been all year. And so many so many changes within the team to still come out and perform like we did. It's really cool. A second championship for New Zealand of Vegas Bergen puts him in the company with Jim Richards and Scott McLaughlin, who are also New Zealanders that have won it twice. Yeah, it's pretty cool. Jimmy's obviously a hero to most kiwi drivers and then obviously Scotty getting to race him and him being a mate winning the last few. Yeah, it's cool to add my name to that list, but as I said, it's just to win it again as it's a cool thing. You know, I remember, it seems a while ago now was only 2016, but yeah. It feels just like the first one. It's pretty cool feeling. After the sport being dominated by New Zealand, a Scott McLaughlin for the past three years has veggie Burke and felt any different about the competition and winning the championship in 2021 without him here. Yeah, like I would have loved to have raced him, you know, obviously Anton shows what that car's capable of. I think I was thinking about it like there's been three guys sort of the last few years in our levels just gone crazy, like I've had to lift to Scotty, obviously live to Jamie, and then we're all pushed each other. And one of them's gone. And then the others got probably a lot of outside. Factors that influence them. Maybe it didn't but I just got to keep focused and stay above that level and not drop to everyone else, you know? It's been pretty awesome. This championship the last few years trying to catch someone and perform tp and keep learning. And I think this year I kept getting better, and I just got to keep focused and keep improving. The supercar series heads to bathurst for the 1000 kilometer race does knowing that venk is burgundy can not be beaten for the championship, allow a different approach or reduce the pressure on him to attack the race. Good. I'm relaxed about it now. I can have a couple of days to let this soak in and then focus on bathurst. And I think probably the most relieved guys Garth like it's tough for the co drivers they haven't done enough miles really any of them, so for him to just go and just do his own prep and just build up as he goes and then even in the race, he can get more comfortable and focus on winning. Yeah. And for us, we're not going to have to strategize around staying out of trouble and we just go in there, purely for the race one with both cars. And it'll be more intense, probably. Going for the win outright,.

It's great to be back.

As you may or may not be aware. I don't get folks hillsdale's any watching the edited all lights. It was a Donut performance by triple eight of both days. Qualifying one two's both days races, the Qasr certainly had massive speed and they did they usual thing which something that have been doing for some years. And of course, now back on top of the championship with Shane grabbing that lay there with a second Bryce on Sunday, and one thing of coming up in the weeks ahead spoken at length with mocked up in the belt, the satisfaction of going to a new trek like that and having that sort of success that certainly if it's not next week, it'll definitely be the week after on the show just before we go into what he's on the show this week. Interesting to see that the Team Penske were floundering, almost certainly in was no way Scotty was doing his best. But really not making much of an inroad into things.

So I guess he was extremely disappointed on Saturday when the result didn't come his, why that he was expecting after good pay some Friday. And then as you said, bench. Back with both.
