Ok ok ok may be I was wrong in what I said and appologise for singling out Mat, the M3 "F1 MAT" has nothing to do with stockcar racing and yes drivers of course have a life and can do as they please however to rant on about having to spend £1200 before you go racing next year and that it is ridiculous is a bit much when that is what some drivers spent to start this season on Hoosiers! So now you have all done moaning bout my negative comment I notice none of you picked up on the positive ideas I had like drivers advertising their stock tyres for others to buy but then your all English and thats what you do isn't it, MOAN! Surely the panic buying of the Big Hard Boss was to blame for the reason why after only a month their use was restricted, was the reason for the bulk buy quite selfish in that I'm allrite I have my big Boss's! Anyway another posting stated that 21 will be buying a new tyre for every final in the 10 shoutout rounds, surely that demonstrates why the BSCDA are trying a different tyre does it not when they obviously don't last very long? The shock and short notice statement, well I have witnessed tyre testing going on at meetings for over a year, at alot of meetings this year cars have started from the back of the grid and I have seen people in yellow vests checking cars on the track straight after a race. When I asked at the beging of the season what was happening I was told they were carrying on from last year and that at the AGM last November everyone was told August 2009 would see a decision made as to the way they would go for 2010. This being correct then surely drivers wouldn't have a stock pile of tyres? You have got to ask yourself when is a good time to change, the answer is never, its like telling your girlfriend you want out, never a good time to say that is there. All I am getting at is why, without having run the tyres yet is everyone negative about the change, were in England and they are going to be using a house hold name and could capitalise from it. As fans we should be giving our support to the drivers and the committee's who have spent a long time trying their best and obviously believe that what they are trying is GOOD for the sport.
