"Cool, I think. The jet lag will perhaps not be fun. So we'll see. And I think it's going to be an interesting rally. We've got a couple of cool little stories there, obviously there'll be a couple of kiwis that will be in the mix, not in the rally ones, but certainly in WRC two that will be worth watching. We've got we'll have supercars champion Shane van gisbergen, having a guy rallying. He can pretty much drive it. The wheels off anything. So I'm fully expecting him to be right at the sharp end and cause some problems because he's another one of those guys that literally you fry many car. He'll perform. New Zealand will be a really nice rally. It's a quite historical one, you know, when it goes back a few years that there's been a lot of historical moments there, a column of cry with it is one of his favorites. So yeah, I think there's a lot of excitement for New Zealand, not just not just for me, but from anyone in WRC because there's some lovely gravel stages. And current Aussie rally champion Harry Bates making his debut next month as well in WRC two. So loads of storylines there, but let's get grease out of the way first of all. It's going to be fantastic as we count down to that. Guys, thank you so much. The battle continues. We can't wait to follow it. As Tom mentioned make sure you stay tuned to the gravel notes podcast and make sure you are subscribed to the gravel notes iTunes feed on Google on Spotify wherever you get your podcasts because we're going to do some special programs over the next few weeks around Tom's exploits. We'll call them and talk about co driving. So make sure you are subscribed and look out for all of our new podcasts as well. Thank you very much for listening to another podcast and we'll see you on the next one.

"Did it take to make a decision like that to change? Yeah, I mean, there's a lot of internal kind of turmoil at some point. You know what I mean? I feel like loyalty is one of my values and it's hard to kind of leave Brad, you know what I mean? I have a good relationship with him and I respect him a lot, but also I think I needed to go more from the growth point of view for myself. You know, I have been there for a long time. You know, you get to a point where you wonder how I would go in an environment like triple-A on a main can I succeed? Can I learn? Can I contribute and so, you know, when the opportunity comes up, you really have to take it. So, and it's been really good for me. And I've been enjoying it with the team. How is the structure of the team significantly different to what you've experienced previously? Yeah, it is interesting, obviously triple it very well polished team. Their processes are amazing. The attitude and the team is excellent. They always want to do better in everything. And so they're critical and everything they do and we will work to make it better and that's a challenging and tough environment, but also rewarding at the same time. So yeah, I enjoy that. And yeah, and hopefully we can keep going in the future. And Shane van gisbergen is he significantly different to any other driver you've worked with? I don't know about significant. He's certainly he's racecraft, I guess, is well documented. He's incredible when it comes to the race. Just the way he can manage the car and the stint. And understand the strategy and the competitors and setting up passes. I think he's amazing when it comes to that. And once again, I like working with these guys that are they've got intensity that they like racing and they want to they want to push and do everything they can to win. So it's great working with a guy at that level. You've been doing this job for a fair while now and I don't mean to aid you. So you're a lot of experience. You know what to call on when certain situation arises when Shane comes in since the car is doing this or that or the other. You've got a good idea on a direction to go with the car. Does he play a larger role in engineering than other drivers you're working with? Look, I mean, in terms of engineering, the thing we certainly work as a team, you know, we've got a we've got Jeremy at the top of the as technical director and managing at the car and certainly always coming up with ideas on what we want to do with the car and that's another reason why it is very because we do work well as a team and come up with ideas together. But Shane obviously has a very good feel. And he gives good feedback, but he doesn't manage any direction of the car. So he really gives the feedback, but engineering does the decision making on really what to do there. So I think that works well. He's free to push the car and kind of give what he thinks. But I guess on the other side of it, it's not his responsibility and shouldn't be the driver's responsibility to engineer the car. So we try and make sure that we do

"So let's get the enduro cut back. Let's get the sand down 500 back. And it's planned for what the sand down 500 looks like post sand down, you know, it's a full pile in 500 come back. What does queenston race do? Revamp. And then worry about the international staff. And start in New Zealand and then go from there. There's too many question marks to start talking about Asia or America again. If we're talking about costs and we have throughout the program so far, is having a multiple two driver race is going to be too expensive. Should or could the sand M 500 come back as a one driver race? Oh, it's feasible, isn't it? We're told that the cost of having a co driver is significant for the fans on the hill. It's sort of hard to picture that it would be that expensive as a percentage of the total show. But yeah, that one's hard to tell. We've spoken about the rising costs to business. What we haven't said is often government support these things, governments around Australia around the world are carrying a whole lot of debt from COVID, maybe they've temporarily don't have the appetite to support new tracks in camera or events at sand down. Governments have to tighten their belts. Maybe that's a factor that really hasn't bubbled to the surface. You mentioned the Monaco Grand Prix and there was an interesting observer for Red Bull at the Monaco Grand Prix last weekend. And he is off to Le Mans on this weekend daydream, Mussolini. With the championship be helped by Shane van gisbergen becoming a GT driver. Well, in the way he's dominating, I guess it takes out the powerhouse. We've seen this before with Scott McLaughlin. The run he was on and then you take him out and then Shane was just stepped up. So it's great to see him doing international staff, especially after COVID, a lot of drivers missed out on that opportunity. And we see his talent week in week out. He's clearly something special. So it'll be great to see how he performs in that event. And then go from there, but if he continues to dominate at the rate, his dominion, it makes sense to me that he'd look overseas for some new challenges. Like Scott did and we've seen how will Scott stand in a discipline, we probably didn't think he would go. I thought it'd be NASCAR and I was shocked as anyone who was an IndyCar, but he's taken to it like a doctor water. I think one of the best things to come out of the recent race at winton is that someone took the challenge up to him. That's just so important for the interest in the championship. We saw last year championship wrapped up before bathurst. It sort of took away something that we normally love. I am interested in your thoughts during scapes amazing run with HRT. Every they changed the point score to try and bring the competition back. During Jamie's amazing run, they never played that card. It's an interesting different sky was able to overcome a gerrymander every year. Jaime was absolutely dominant and he has got the rewards for his work, but never tried to novel..

"Hello and welcome to inside supercars as this week. We have a look at two drivers doing two very different things ahead of the season start. Shane Ben giz Bergen has announced hilly will be racing in the Australian rally championship with Red Bull, and James Courtney is off testing the gin three car this week at Queensland rice. Why? And like many drivers, they enjoy getting back to school. Yeah, first day at school. I've gone back to school before the kids have, but they're not fantastic. As it always is, they have a 1000° out here in switch and yeah, it's great to get some more running in the gym for a couple obviously. Had the little teaser of baptist, which was amazing to get out and go across the mountains. Mountain, not mountains, mountain the band, and had a little bit of fun with wheel ground that day, jostling a little with the Camaro, so it's not a great come out here and get started and just trouble running the boys have obviously been working crazy over Christmas break. There's a lot of components here on the car, which has changed from when I drive it last time and you know it's a very different car to what we're used to. I was saying the group levels feel very similar to what we had in 2008, that sort of BA. Era, which is good, but we're the bottom myself. Davison Shane is obviously there then. But the new guys don't know what that lack of down force is all about. So it's a good thing. Yeah, just getting some running today, really. Testing at Queensland raceway was not just about the new car, James talks about some of the other systems that they are concentrating on. Yeah, first of all, it's a hot one out here, we're testing the new cool suit system, which is a refrigerated unit which TA have been running this year last season. The majority of the other teams have been running dry eye systems. So it's a little bit safer, I guess. So using that and it seems to be working quite well, which is good on a hot day. I'm happy about that being the older chap. But yeah, getting some miles and all that sort of stuff the guys are going to also compare Mars with some changes underneath the skin. And also going to do some running behind around both cars later on this afternoon. Hopefully we're allowed to run into a shell. That'll make it a little bit more exciting. But yeah, any day you can drive a race car's a good day, so it's a lot of fun and I can't wait to keep going. And what about the new gen three car? How is JC finding the differences between it and the current car? And give him an edge on the competition when it is introduced. Yeah, it is very, very different. Definitely the group levels a lot lower the aero balance. The car moves around so much more through turn one and two here at X which are quite high speed corners more so too. You're losing the rear, whereas with the current cars, it sort of driving with a lot of understeer. So it makes it quite lively. Also, without that rear wing or that really down force braking, we've got a lot of rear locking set of cars moving around a lot, which is interesting. But if you drama still like the power steering still isn't right, it's got a bit of a wave in it and a little bit of vibration, which is also working on. And that's all part of this testing is all about to try and get rid of those little issues before we hit the ground running at the start of the next season. But yeah, having a ball, like you said, it's very, very different car to drive and yeah, that's fun to drive something different. We've been driving. It can't have changed a lot over the whole time I've been in the category. But it's always been a slow little slight change so you don't really get the gist of how much the car has changed until now we have a complete change like everything's different. Yeah, it's fun. Sparks some energy. It's been a fun to drive. Yeah, so let me join the day so far. We haven't done as much running as I wanted. I got my little bloke here fidelity's birthday today and I said to him, what do you want to do? You can either stay at home or hang out with mates and then he wanted to come out here to be the first kid to be playing his first kid to sit in it and have a look at it. So it's good to have him here today. He's enjoying the day. He was more excited about meeting Shane on his birthday, I think so. So that's a bit of kicking the balls for me. But anyway, I'm at home happy as long as he's happy. For James Courtney, the season will start in March, but not a Newcastle as many head hoped with the street race being set aside due to the aim across variant. Yeah, look at it's a shame. We couldn't get to Newcastle. The world's crazy place at the moment, but as long as we're racing and to go back and we're doing a 300 kilometer race in under light. So trying to jazz it up as much as we can. And hopefully, with the tire format, it is going to mix up the racing as well. And these things under lights are always spectacular. Everyone's had a little bit of a break. Everyone's going to be come back and they're going to say their Mina the top of their stronger their feet are the cars are faster than they've ever been. All this hype and then we get racing you can see what happens. So it's always exciting to me, the first round. So yeah, be interesting to see how it paints out. The former western Sydney boy will return to the west with the opener now at Sydney motor sport park. He is JC thoughts. Yeah, home ground. Well, I've lived out of pens for a long time, but I was blowing out that way. Last couple of times I've been on the podium has been on the Saturday so there's been a lot of spray champagne, so it'll be nice to be able to spray champagne this time. And hopefully we can come away with good results. So it's going to be a big year for us to take good moving, obviously, to the 5 car this year, cam and I still together in the garage with the 6 and the 5, which is excellent. I'm excited to go working with him. He's such an amazing young talent and having a great time with my racing. Well, as you heard last year on inside supercars, Shane van gisbergen will be running the Australian rally championship in 2022. He spoke to motor sport Australia about what sparked his interest in getting into the championship. Always grown up with rally, but yeah, it's pretty nerve wracking to finally be in the main series in a proper car. Dip the tower in the water in New Zealand with a rally in dad's escort and a hill climb there. But yeah, to do a championship round. It's going to be it's going to be pretty tough jumping straight in, but yeah, just take my Tom and see how we go. The New Zealand born racer, what does he know about the nation's capital? The Australian capital, not much else. At the moment, I got no idea. I think there's a big jump somewhere that's quite famous, but yeah, I'm not sure if they still use that. Van Gibbs Bergen loves motor sport and has been successful in just about every style of car. He's competed in. So what attracts him to other events? Yeah, I just love driving and competing against the best guys. You know whether it's drifting or speedway or rally. And rally drivers are the best of the best and when I did this, it's obviously the same you're driving a car as faster than you can, but on gravel it's so foreign to me and listening to someone else tell you a way to go like it's an awesome challenge and yeah, I just want to see if I can adapt and try and get better and better at it and hopefully have a propaganda. Yeah, this will be a great initiation. We've got some pretty cool people on board. And looking forward to that. The supercar champion moving to rallying, what are some of the challenges that are ahead for him? The biggest thing is listening to someone and listening to the pace notes. That's the toughest thing. And understanding what the numbers mean and how detailed to be.

"We try and race as long as I can and do whatever I can, of course, but the day you want to have fun with the people that mean something to you and you want to have them around at the weekends and join it with you as well. And you know going out for dinners and having a good time of an art time too. And you brought in and over the years you've had a lot of good partners that have been able to gain something from you and you've been able to keep racing because of them. Yeah, absolutely. And as we know, we don't go racing without the support crew, you know, so guys like clean from trady pad and Josh from Cosmo grains and the list goes on, you know it's really good. And having them come to the racetrack, you know, hanging out which kind of early on in the year was a little bit difficult because it was kind of just cruel and teams go to the track. So that was a little bit disappointing, probably from there. And as well, because I always want to be here. Quite a few of them. This weekend, but yeah, without the support group, I stayed home and I watched it all on TV so it certainly don't turn any ties around without them, so yeah, very, very, very thankful. Well, the twos on the trophy this year, the goal I imagine for 2022 is to move that one number up. Yeah, absolutely. That's definitely the goal. Kind of feel with our last two rounds being at this and at city motor sport park, I think our paces is there that if all the ducks line up and we tick all the boxes then we should be able to have a shake, but obviously motor sport anything can happen. This year was kind of about learning, you know, as much as we possibly could, you know, we didn't come in thinking we were going to win the championship or even fought for top three in the championship to be fair, but just keep chipping away, try and win some races, get some fast slaps and poles, whatever the one race we've got a couple of poles, but I feel like this weekend we've probably had a little bit more in the car for whatever reason the first few hundred meters of these races are bringing me on stock and by the time I get to where I should have been at the start, nice run away, you'll Boggs run away at eastern creek and then it's everyone's too tight. You can't go giving away that sort of thing. So I have to get a little bit more aggressive and give myself a bit of a tune up and we can look in the mirror and wake up to myself and try and make sure those starts are you know as good as I can be like everybody else and hit the ground running and we'll see where we end up. Well, Tim have a great Christmas and looking forward to seeing how your team makes it out on the greater hint. Yeah, yeah, thanks very much. Yeah, fingers crossed. We're back in the 38 trading pad wall racing rocket and see how we go. Great to catch up with Tim brook there. And you can see once again, how much he's developed as a racing driver in that time. Now, to Shane weng is Bergen a very well credentialed and established driver. He's the supercar champion. And it was announced this week that he'll also be racing in the Australian rally championship with his sponsor Red Bull. It's awesome to be obviously part of the Red Bull family, but then to drive with them and supercars, but now rally as well..

"This week on inside motor sport, we speak with Tim Brooks about his second place finish in the 2021 trans am series. I hope you'll stay with us. While speaking to Tim Brooks of bathurst, was a great opportunity to catch up with him again. Last time we spoke to him on the inside motor sport was on our 9th of January show and you can hear that at sport radio dot com dot IU. At that time, he had just won the Toyota 86 championship. Now, two years on, and he is second place in the Australian TransAm series. I spoke to him in his wall racing transporter after the trophy presentation. While Tim Brock has been a little while since we spoke to you on inside motor sport head last time you were talking about the plants to get out of 86s. It seems to have been a very successful move to trans ams in the first step. Second in the championship in 2021. Yeah, look, it's turned out pretty good to be honest. It's probably taking a little bit longer. We started in 86s for a little longer than I guess we were originally expecting. But yeah, thoroughly enjoyed this year trans am. It was opportunity there at the start of the year. We've David wobble racing and yeah, we thought why not? Let's have it, let's have a go now huge man about the category or the cars or anything and yeah, it's been a hell of a learning curve this year. That's for sure, but a good one at that. Bit wild and woolly compared to the 86. Yeah, I guess so. Yeah, I mean, the cars have plenty of attitude, which is what I love about them at the moment, you know, they've got heaps of power. They've got a good tie when they're new, but they certainly start to move around and sounds like everybody that's viewing from the outside seems to love that about the category, you know? They've always moved around on the tower and almost to a certain point that maybe had too much pay out for the tire and yeah, we're loving that as well. So it's certainly becomes a bit of a battle trying to have some tires left for the last race and not burn them up too early in the weekend. And yeah, it's been really good. It's been really, really good. 2020, 21 COVID affected. How has that changed your plans? Does it actually meant you haven't gone racing quite as much so you may be saved a bit of money to be able to stock up for the years ahead. We should be sized a little bit of money to stock up, but yeah, unfortunately not. This year's kind of turned out, I suppose how we had originally planed with we got our 6 rounds in, which was fantastic and I guess a testament to the category for pressing on and I guess the AI nasty opportunity. You know, I have ten categories here at baths at the biggest rice event of the year. He's pretty cool and it's all been run stainless from our end. But yeah, look, the plane will be to go again and stick with trains aim, same team, same car, for next season. We've learned a lot and I feel like that's sort of shiny now pace. Over the season and I feel like we're starting to really get out. Our heads are in, there's always plenty more to learn, so definitely not going to stop here..

"Setting Jamie on his path to greatness. He said that success is nephew has achieved has been celebrated by more than his family. Everybody thinks that not just family, but close family friends, you know? He started incredible think to a tree what he has and he's still like, it's still lucky he's running second in the championship man and he's retirement year. He still puts the thing on Paul. You know, he's still throwing in some incredible laps in the east still doing very, very well lucky he's stepping out at the top of his game and I'm sure if Jamie throws head out there, there'd be several things would like him to come and drive their cars and pick up a piece. Scott Gallo has justices of Jamie in his autobiography, rather a lifetime. And he spoke about how Jamie approached his next chapter. Yeah, absolutely. He was not obsessed, but he sort of a challenge. He didn't want to be known as one trick pony. Which is pretty good trick when you're the best driver in 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 die that he couldn't, you know, build that fence over there. So then he'd go and do it. And I think Jamie should be at 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 van gisbergen, Graham, win cap 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 cars, 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 teammate. Gregg lands admires many aspects of the relationship. It was always been the one thing that the stock news grow. 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 to take it into account that it's going to take 5 minutes to get there. So I hate being like to anything and Jamie was always that person or if I can spend an extra extra minute looking at data or doing something like that, I'd rather do that than be in 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 shame. David couchy, Jamie's engineer from 2014 to 2020 said it was the relationships that Triple H 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 the Roland, you know, operates the team, like that's a very big part of why Triple H has been so successful in its 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, 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 what triple-A's today. Ten is now joined the team as a co driver. Wind caps teammate Shane men gisborne. He's now founding at first hand wide triple-A has been so successful and dying all I said to me one day I'll get you in one of my cars. And turned out. We did a we finally got it down to the endurance races. So, yeah, look, it's been a lot of fancier and a lot of fun amongst the full drivers of triple-A. Given the battles that we've had over the journey, roast against Jamie, particularly, you know, the year that I'd run the championship 2007 when it came down to two points between Jamie and myself. The following a couple of years and we were inside when January 1% started battling for opportunity to look through this arm. And then obviously shining came on the scene 2007, you know, right against him that whole time. Scott gullon. He 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 wants it to be the most modern and different and best in Australia. So 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.

"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,.

"Jamie wing cap has picked up his 124th race win in supercars as the greatest of all time comes towards the end of his racing career as a main game driver. He took the win in a race that was stopped because of monsoon or rains at Sydney motor sport park. Yeah, it was fairly turned into. I don't think they get much worse than that in the dark buck taming down. It was quite a decent river across the track at turn four. And ten, one was getting a little bit hey going as well with all the puddles and everything. So it was a matter of just tip it in and hang on. As I said after the rise to the driver and we wanted to keep going. But the team owner and me thought it's a sensible we're coming back next week. You know, we can't tear up 6 or 7 cars and have a grid of about 18 next week, so it was probably I believe it was the right call in the end. The race was marred with a number of yellow flags. But it was a wing cap, who got the win in the pits. He said the track had its moments when it was drivable. He's got wet track the whole way, but actually there was quite a once once four and two got going, then there was actually some dry patches where the cars were sitting on the grid. So you're able to get in a few draw patches, get some momentum when you get to the slippery bits. So it was much easier from the back there but got a good start. When aggressive had a bit of a lunch and a tent too. And yeah, that was a nice feeling, knowing that there's plenty of spry in the dark to be at the front of the pack, obviously the preferred position. Its wing cup second win of the season and potentially his last with just a few races till his retirement after the bathurst 1000 this year. I was in the grade that haven't had a win this year, so I'm not greedy. I got one back in tassie, which is great. And yes, I would steal another one this weekend. So for me, everywhere in every party, I'm trying to turn it like it's my last. So far, there's been two races that Sydney most motor sport park with two different times combinations. We can cap said having to run two compounds in one race, similar to Formula One is his preference. I like the dual compound as long as it's over one one race. Same as F one. I don't like it when cars stack this soft tires and completely rot one rice off for another. You know, I like it like to have it. The same for everyone and every rice. But the qualifying on bit torn on the qualifying, you should have a good set of the fastest tire for every part of qualifying, you know, rather than trying to save through one part to get to the next and whatnot. So you see chase you qualify 14. These 14th, probably not, you know, but he was sort of forced to try to save his tires for the last run. I didn't quite work out for him. So I like to qualify and just know no artificial just try it out fight and then the race bit of strategy to be part of it. I'm a bit of a fan of park for me as well. So what you cast set up that you finish with is what you have to start the race with. But I am a bit more of a purist. And I just think qualifying should be flat out. No strategy. Just the quickest cars at the front. The 5th quickest car is 5th and the tenth grade car is tenth. But then for the right mix of strategy, I want to see what happens. But for somebody on the outside yeah, from the outside, which measures out of ten, you know? And that'll make it exciting. But we're here racing. Everyone's got putting 25 people in their life on the line. And well, there's plenty of people down pit lane as well also doing the same thing. So we're going to make sure that we keep it as cape appear at the same time. Anton deeper squali over the course of the weekend had one race win in race 23. In race 22, he had a mechanical problem that put him from the back of the field, and then in 24, he came home second. And talked about the weather. Yeah, pretty sketchy. Especially once it's safe to car got cold then it really started buckling down and getting pretty wet. Pretty much what Jamie said in me wanted to go again and try and fight for it, but yeah, it was on the verge of being probably two or three corners, most of the trackers are up, but there's two or three that were pretty bad. Just rivers across the track and you kind of become a passenger for part of the corner. So you never want that. Especially restart into that. Something's going to go down for sure. One of the most remarkable performances on Sunday Night at Sydney motor sport park was chaz mustard, who started at the back of the field and drive his way up to third position in atrocious conditions. Yeah, I'd first say the spray for me was actually probably the bestest ever been in that kind of wet weather conditions. I think in a daytime when you have the spray that far back, it's so glaring that you really get kind of white like water that in the eyes. Here, you see the spray, but you can still see the track limits with the yellow lines and stuff like that. So I thought it was pretty good. I think just before the safety cargo called at the end was actually probably perfect timing, more the fact of this voice said, there was a couple of quarters on the track that would just get into dangerous turn one, especially didn't matter what line you picked there, but you felt like you're about to go off in the grass and there was a couple other rhythm for the track as well. So yeah, kudos to supercars are calling that. Obviously the fans in the stands want to see, obviously a fantastic finish, but safety and cars and all that kind of stuff it was a rock called the end of day. On Saturday night at Sydney motor sport park when the weather was a bit more accompanying racing, it was Shane van gisbergen, who took the victory, and he talked about having the two different tire strategies and also made some reference to the dick Johnson racing team where Anton de pasquale had to start from the back and will Davison was starting up towards the front of the field. Yeah, it was a cool cool battle at the start, normally you're driving right around 50% just driving to the top. I thought we were only going to do 5 laps or 6 laps in my case for the hard tire, so we're just flat out everywhere and Montage was done. When I pitted and gauti said, oh, we'll probably keep going because it was a bit of a bit of a gap behind. And yeah, just it hung in there pretty good, like you could just push flat out, whereas when you put the soft on your notes a long way. So yeah, and then when I came out, I was surprised that Jamie wasn't further ahead and just drove up to him slowly and then made sure I had coal tires when I got there. He didn't get any hard running in practice, did you? Did you save them? No, we probably missed the trick there, like, you know, you don't really qualify on them and the guys next door did a good job by running them getting a feel and knowing, same with earbuds, I think did it. So maybe we missed something there, but in the race, the car was pretty speedy on hearts. Thoughts on the two tire format that we've got going on this weekend. The two Thai compound format? Yeah, I thought, before the race said it was going to be we're all put in a box and going to pit early, but it actually was okay. And you know, there was differences in speed and stuff. So it surprised me. But yeah, we'll see what happens in the race tomorrow, once people have figured it out a bit and it's going to be harder, or it might rain, but yeah, it was good just to be competitive. I guess the good DJI car wasn't up front. So we don't know if we're really that fast, but we'll see. What can I be able to watch? Yeah. But you know what I mean? We'll see how fast we are tomorrow because he'll be up front. Davison, who immediately after the race was unhappy with some of his treatment, both out of our chambe and gis Bergen, but by the time the media conference rolled around, it seemed to be all settled. I just yeah, I just asked if he saw me on the outside of one. So I think he just understood him to me. So, yeah, it's never ideal. Try and go side by.

Which which was unheard of for a single con same to to a change that What you've achieved so far at at triple eight Must've exceeded your expectations I dunno no not really just probably had to deliver like i know that In an opportunity and the best team in the in the field. And i have to perform and and do my mom stops. Are you know if i knew if i worked hard enough at my craft and make sure everything was raw that i had every opportunity to be out front and you know i think every year since i've aimed at the same thing in the front front top three every every year and won a lot of right this Yeah the job. You know it was all on may perform so yeah. I've had two different step it up and be better. The laci is of course last year was your say in in being in.

"Was cold rice. I was going to go out with and with interesting yet. You mentioned that about not like macapagal. I remember having a conversation with kenny smith. He hasn't been. Ceo's about drawn and talks about how much is low of the three thirty two is which is ironic. Coast yeah it was horrible And murphy we could hardly hardly drive tie you know. The steering wheel had to be so close to you because it had to be a certain amount of millimeters right from the the highlights scaring what super cloud. And you almost had to stay with your risk so it wasn't too bad but you know when you hit a bump or something you had no strength So i actually ended up running the rack by especially for the woman there. The w theory the ago no issued telling people that are the but didn't have enough arm strength. you know the precision. I had from the extra law and might up the difference but yes certainly. That lay are win win. Aw did it give you any ties. To perhaps one jumping the is far sales and compare the two perhaps. Yeah sure love to love to do that but Always see that very political so i'm not allowed to go and rice though that has been talked about that. Yeah i can't. I'm not allowed to write them I think you know one one night. He cool cool down the stairs. I looked like cobb well whilst we're talking political now you watch the game free on the weekend. Did you take out of that rice. And i wanna fell off from a couple of different angles. What was your immediate gut. Feel when you were watching people are out. you know you saw the saws an impact. Now fathi off the first thing. Was you happy xikai. And then you learn lighter fifty one g and you know he got caught a concoction that yeah it was pretty pretty crazy and then you know. The group chat were anything pitches of talent like a hit. The wool is all the blue knocking toggle lock. It's quite scared. You look at yeah. I'll just thankfully there ought but you know certainly didn't help the championship for now and it was fascinating with the cars and their electronic system how long the officials had to white two. They could be sure that the cow was de energized before they could go on touch. It maxima already jumped out probably before possibly was safe to do so. Yeah yeah. I don't understand complicated systems but i think they've lost that murder as well probably gonna penalty for that down the law and much of the shine. You know that accidents going to have a have a follow on effect to but about the mindset when you watch the to in car cameras and you've been the guy leading being challenged and you've been the guy challenging what was what was joe mindset being that similar situation or when you're in that similar situation i think we're doing the same thing i got a flat out trying to get lead and getting position and You know the the the accident. You know obviously penalized but whether that was enough of the penalty. I'm sure and you know that's obviously a massive point of the debate from both guys you know. I think that a bunch of the writing was awesome. Mac government off sites then was pretty boldy hanging on the outside and lewis was making a dog up inside to get the lead. Think that's awesome and In the end of his louis to who made the mistake. And and i'm the state into the car. Yeah it's It's just hard writing and that south happens and you wanna keep saying that and one thing so sure. People are going to be tuned into hungary to see how it all plays out next time. Yeah exactly makes makes us interested. Doesn't it on the subject of wailers. I mean obviously you had a great battle a last three or four years with cutting mclaughlin And i know that you voiced. You'll certainly disappointed that he wasn't gonna be here but also that you looking forward to seeing how he got his name because your on his his success and how achieving what he is yes. It's awesome and i think i a little bit of a victim of his on success early because you know changed his expectation flock. You know he's been building up and getting further off the grid every time but then you know you got on to a couple of good laughs so you got on it. You know second lucky did at texas and all of a sudden your expectation china but I think for the for the rookie year at being really good you know and you can see all the tracks these gone for the first time. He's getting better throughout the weekend And and you know. I bought a paid in the rice. You stuck in traffic. So i think certainly the thickener is going to be really really good. He only made one mistake. Rally which was detroit And and the first practice but other than that. It's being being awesome to watch and You know following progress. And i are watch those rights as anyway to watch dixie writing so Yeah now having having been in the sights on a few times invading. Do you think that's something down the line that you'd like to try. And do he's gonna have a go. Have a test that leads to start with an indycar. Probably not you know like they do. Some cool writes things but you know some of the some of the right thing. doesn't really interest me too much but yeah like obviously per se. You wanna have a guy but korea was probably not for me. You know i. I really wanna do that fulltime. But i certainly like america. The american style of right thing is is very good. They have a good attitude about it. And you know. I certainly enjoy going rising and and It's always a lot of fun whenever i've right there. The people really cool. So yeah. I'd love to do more and gt stuff. But i don thank god infocomm realizing full well cows. It is the restriction now on on any of it moving. Anyway i mean.

You've been having a great time. Been having some great rices ends of antastic of the nineteen rights is run this year. You've won eleven of them. Some of demonstrably those others you have seen a great competitor and i will actually touch on something that i saw on sunday when cameras. One right sign thing and you came and shuki and congrat- him and i feel that very same thing. I remember all those years ago that you love rising and you don't have to win to enjoy it and that by in your smile on that sunday afternoon last weekend and over is being pretty good this year and like it's been altered to go into every right now on your chance to win as good as anyone but Yeah i found that right three. We're pretty cool. And he got a little bit lucky compared to the risky coal to guy around another lap and worked out with them and We couldn't couldn't make back the song we lost not going to get back in time. Yes i was towing a battle With a little bit rian now they can kinda hot the right around the street track. It was pretty good Yeah certainly enjoyed it one of the things. That seem so overuse. This year is that you have been more than just competitive. You've been the price at the rice strikes with the exception of thailand band and quite obviously because three different drivers in three different things one there. Why is the mustang. So good on time and being good with that we would. Somebody was power on sunday in the nicest lark Got stuck behind cam. The last one. I guy almost a little lucky with his engine but we were right there. Yeah every every right. I think we're pretty much the fastest cop but seventy qualifying little bit week. Sometimes especially in the cold attract. So but yeah. It's the was quite obviously the five hundred. The twin to fifties at towns you'll tame with extremely dominant The following weekend the other team had gone away and worked hotter would say but no other than triple eight had but they got the spade back that they admit because you know those two wins that you had on the opening weekend towns. Were very very sober weekend. Thirty twenty second wings. Yep are great and That's not that's not mobile as we know so we knew that other people were gonna come out stronger. I'm not sure what it was that gap because normally there shouldn't be anything close to thirty pecking got you know. I think we just had it wrought by sit up. So he's good there. And i i'm saying in our in that was to me. That was evidence the next week. Whenever i'm turned up with with foster now and the gap was was normal. You know there wasn't really wants out. Yeah i'm not sure what happened. The first thing we now this is your full change year. Full time in the series. It's extraordinarily thing. Go 'cause you're still a young man and or you might not feel you but before here and it certainly destroying their sought to a you had. What do you think different so much. This she fully autumn. Feel like anything about Yeah certainly i don't feel all like You know there's always something alone or it's still like on improving. So yeah i think i think there's always striving to be better and push push mine limit. settling sibling helps. But you don't i why this year with off about certainly you know we have made some downs with the car and stuff. So it's probably helped. Get the change of engineer from She'd be to David couch he did that. Make a massive difference is You know that. Don't think methods You know certainly miss having should around. He's great most and a and a great friend Yeah with catchy. In spain it's been really good and you know His enthusiasm and how hollywood and is ultimate. It's really cool to see feed that how passionate he is about it and you know You know you got to celebrate victories. When you're going well how much who puts in every week at the shop and away from the track is is pretty. Impressive are yeah. It's been cool cool to be a part of that but in somebody's you know when when i was talking to shippy You know when he was when he was dissolving thinking to result parts for moving you know he he knew chop this year would have been really hard hard to win. You know i think in some ways. There's a little bit gutted That he's not had part of it and until he looks at a bank account. Well we all have to work on the future. Don't oh yeah on aggregate them and that's the reason why why you went there. Yeah i understand that. But let's just start. Greg spot me because you'll say start off very differently because you back into your early. Is that being the wailers and you had. I mean you had the weekend in the rally. Cows they A school and then i Mitsubishi mirage and then we also offers you. You're into a tent say toyota in the new zealand growing free Then you had one of those extraordinary going. I think that anyone's ever had in new zealand that being a pit line stop and then going through the wits. You obviously had made decision to go into that early because they came out to you to join because it was not going to be an international rome rate was going to be new zealand one. You must've enjoyed it enormous. Not just the winning of it but the fact that you were so competitive right from the side of the funny one actually heightened the car It was. I was really caught it to get into a single theater again. I had fond memories of them. And how hard and aggressive you had to draw but in the amount of time of being away which you know it was two thousand seven. When i laugh strove those cards and a ribbing angry beats and you know very lot but now the it's it was a hundred and fifty kilo tibia and ever meet a longer. It felt like driving. A turncoat was super lazy. And you know the hard sabres impressive but you know. It wasn't a role based lock hoped it would be You know you had to draw. But with a lot of technique and quite smoothly it did probably a play into my vantage in some ways. But yeah i wasn't. It wasn't what i hugged. And and i actually struggled to fit in the thing which which is by probably to toll for it But you know. I i had to let break as well. I've never left foot right before a top from apart from rally cars and yeah i Took a long long time to adjust. You know i was really off the pace on the on the pray. Pray tempting but Stuck with it and yeah on the on the early days of the grand prix on the friday or a little bit off as well. But yeah chipped away and then and writing has had had really good pipes but Yeah it was very oakwood could drive and you know. The car was very top the Because of the highlight the gravity ohio. So yeah it was quite different but still still found and to do that mating. It was a lot of young kids than these alem with. Potentially a lot of them in the right. And then as a few of that here. I was in my mind says murphy and chris banda drifts and stop and it.
