The MGs seem to be struggling a bit?!

Brilliant drive by Goff in race 1 though.

Just proves its down to the driver rather than the car in most cases.

Well Goff has Platos car, Jordan Tordoffs car by the sounds of it. It is squeaky bum time I think.

Bit of a mixed bag today at the season opener, but some solid points scored. Shame for Plato having that puncture but also the same for Jordan too.

Very disappointed by Rob Austin for cheating the reverse draw though, I liked Rob but have lost some respect for him for that, I accept that he apologized but still got promoted by Alan Gow after the kerfuffle, I still think he should have been penalized for it, i.e his ball taken out of the second draw for cheating in the first place.

It was a blatant cheat no doubt about it.

Very pleased with Goffs start though to the season.

It was a pleasantly surprising start in the end. Just one podium in the first 3 races but joint leaders of both manufacturers and drivers championships.

EDIT - just checked and MG are actually 5 points clear in the manufacturer standings! Not bad considering that that now includes Honda, BMW and Infiniti.

Excellent days racing and even got sunburnt!
Seems like the rules are nearly sorted, awarding consistency.
Goff was superb, raced like a champ. Jordan had a turbo problem from qualifying and the car never ran well after that. Still, top in both the main points tables can't be bad!
