    Ep. 370 – Garth Tander (Part 1)

    Garth Tander returns to the V8 Sleuth Podcast powered by Castrol for the first time since Ep. 17 back in 2019 – and he’s added a couple more Bathurst 1000 wins since then!
    This time around he reflects on the sudden and unexpected end to his full-time Supercars career and the part surrounding it that angered him the most, plus how his quick shift to a co-driver role at Triple Eight came about. He hits out at Supercars’ new ‘primary driver must start’ rule at the 2024 endurance races, takes us inside what it was like preparing for the COVID Bathurst 1000 in 2020, and tells the story of how he helped wrangle Shane van Gisbergen for the morning TV interviews after winning the 2022 Bathurst 1000.
    He also opens up about his switch to Grove Racing, how and why it came about, and whether we’ll see him behind the wheel in any categories outside of Supercars this year, and we end the first of our two-part chat going back to his championship-winning season in Formula Ford in 1997, including how he landed backing from Bunnings and a couple of pivotal moments in his campaign.

    Race Control: Craig Baird explains the calls from the Bathurst 500

    Race Control filtered by Ryco: V8 Sleuth’s Aaron Noonan chats with Supercars’ Driving Standards Advisor, Motorsport Australia’s Craig Baird, who explains all the details behind the calls made in Race Control during the latest Repco Supercars Championship round.
    Included in this post-2024 Thrifty Bathurst 500 edition:
    - Why some drivers that lost their fastest laps and some didn’t when the yellow flag came out at Murrays Corner in the final moments of Qualifying for Race 1
    - The Race 2 tangle between Broc Feeney and James Golding at The Chase that resulted in the Red Bull Ampol Racing driver being given a five-second time penalty
    - Why Race Control handled the Cam Waters’ lost wheel situation in Race 1 the way it did
    - Full Course Yellows and why they favoured using a Safety Car at the Bathurst 12 Hour
    - The two Dunlop Series tangles at The Cutting in Race 1 and Race 2, and why they were treated differently

Top stuff

Choppa78 ,

Supercars weekly

10 min episode with 6 minutes of ads or shameless self promotion. Poor form Noones

Regular episodes are great though. Still the same self promotion and ads but spread over an hour, they can be handled.
