Supercars: Scott Pye “Disappointed” Melbourne Grand Prix Is Going Ahead

Following the news that someone at the Australian Grand Prix Corporation still has some level of common sense amid the coronavirus media apocalypse, and that the Australian F1 Grand Prix will continue with or without toilet paper, one Supercars driver in particular is tonight lamenting what could have been. 

Scott Pye was apparently quietly hoping the Grand Prix would be canned after he heard that Supercars were considering turning the event into some sort of impromptu enduro.

Unfortunately for Pye, the Italians kicked up enough of a fuss to get Scomo involved, and the Grand Prix is going ahead. 

“I’ve already won in the dark at Albert Park once before, so I was pretty keen to have another crack at a night race there” Pye explained, referring to his 2018 win, which only became a night race by accident about 10 laps from the end courtesy of Melbourne’s famously pristine summer nights. 

Pye told The Waterton Sports Chronicle he’s OK with waiting another year to have any chance of winning a race again.
