With the Supercars season over, and after a big night on the bubbly, celebrating Macauley Jones taking out his team mate and subsequently ruining Scotty McLaughlin’s race, Supercars’ squadron of Parity Pelicans took to the skies in the early hours of this morning, bound for St Petersburg, Florida.
The Waterton Chronicle understands the decidedly dusty group were initially making good pace in their mission to get to Florida in time for Sunday’s Indycar race, but ran into a bit of trouble as they crossed the northern tip of New Zealand.
Speaking from the pelican colony on the shores of Lake Macquarie, parity insider Mark Skaife told this reporter the squadron was heading to Florida to “observe” Scotty McLaughlin’s debut in the Indycar series.
“The parity group is heading to Florida just to keep an eye on Scotty.” Skaife explained.
“We had a good result yesterday in preventing him winning Bathurst after last year’s debacle. So we just need to make sure he doesn’t end up winning this one, and our metrics for the year will be on track.” added the seabird.
According to reports, the squadron were having a bit of a rest and a feed at Tutukaka, when a bunch of locals turned up, apparently a bit unimpressed by the Parity Pelicans’ antics over the last few years.
What ensued next is still a bit unclear, but by all accounts the pelicans weren’t keen to stick around and find out if they were resistant to buckshot.
Radioing in from somewhere northeast of New Zealand, Head of Parity, Paulie the Parity Pelican told Neil Crompton he was “fairly confident” the mission to sprinkle his parity dust on Scotty’s Indycar race was still on track.
“We’re not going to let him win.” the giant pelican explained.
