Saturday 28th March, 2020 - 12:00pm


As the motorsport world pauses amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, delve into the archives and rediscover the biggest stories over the past decade.

These are some of the stories which had us talking, and have gone on to help shape our sport.

On this day in 2015 tempers flared at Symmons Plains Raceway after opening lap contact between Will Davison and James Courtney.

Davison was hit from behind at the hairpin while running third, he was relegated to the rear of the field and eventually recovered to 17th. Courtney maintained that the contact was the concertina effect in play as Chaz Mostert had connected with the year of his car as well.

When speaking to TV after the race Davison remarked, “It was a complete stuff up. He’s telling me to have a cry and that I’ll be right. The arrogance of the bloke is just pathetic. I feel sorry for him.”
