Supercars: McLaughlin Apologises For Saying What Everyone Was Thinking

Bathurst (get over it) and two-time Supercars Champion Scott McLaughlin has today apologised for daring to say what everyone else was already thinking following another demolition derby effort from Jack Smith at last week’s BP Supercars All Stars Eseries event. 

The incident unfolded after Jack Smith once again apparently decided that, in the absence of actual race pace, the best way to move from the back of the field somewhere a little bit closer to the front is to just go full Forza Xbox styles and punt everyone else off into the wall. 

One of the former Hanson impersonator’s victims was Scott McLaughlin, who for some unknown reason took exception to being randomly turned around and punted into the wall by some kid who’s still trying to work out whether it’s better to go into corners backwards or forwards. 

Head of Supercars Paulie the Parity Pelican said McLaughlin’s comment that “he can’t drive”, while technically true, was “deeply incorrect”. 

“I’m just itching to give Scotty a penalty for something, and this could be it.” Paulie told The Waterton Chronicle. 

“We explained to Scotty that it’s completely unreasonable to expect professional racing drivers to behave like professional racing drivers, and he duly apologised for speaking the truth, and assured us that he would endeavour to avoid doing such things in the future.” the seabird squawked.
