funny jokes .......................
We have just had the 1st round with the new 60/60 format as well as the 2 100km sprint races.

We learnt a few things from this weekend.

1) If you suffer a set back during the 60/60 race like Lowndes you can't recover at all.
2) Pit stops are dead.

I was personally disappointed by the changes I think it was a stupid move in changing the format, especially taking out pit stops during the Sundays races, having to use 2 different types of compound tyres used to make it exciting you could witness strategies play out. You also lose the team aspect of the racing, drivers no longer have to rely on their pit crew during the race. And the races are too short, only 100km of race distance makes the races feel like they are over before they start it feels like the V8 Supercar decision makers think that the people watch them don't have an attention span long enough to watch a 200km race. 

I would love to hear your thoughts on the new format, let us know what you think in the comments below.
