A terrific step forward from Supercars introducing a new 3-strike policy to remove offensive behaviour on social media platforms. Read the policy here: bit.ly/SCSocialPolicy

Comment on Facebook

Absolutely...!!😀 A great start to cleaning up the rot and giving their social media page back for the enjoyment of ALL fans. Supercars also need to re-think how they introduce a lot of their posts, as they do incite a lot off negative reaction at times IMHO. We'll see...but at least it's a start. Hopefully it makes life a bit easier for all Supercars related page/group admins too!😁

Supercars should make the ruling that anyone breaching the outlines of their social media policy with offensive or slanderous comments must meet the person face to face that the comments are aimed at and see what happens from there, I wonder if they would be so bold ?

Good news lets hope it works ,but the teams that abused the umpires and DJRTP and Scotty got off free when they should have been fined big time for bringing the sport down, do your job properly supercars and in force your rules to all teams and drivers , you are the ones that let it get out of control, strike one for me

Does it count for texts from team managers from holden.i hope so. Hsv team andretti gonna need a new team owner after febuary

I welcome this and hope it isn’t just laughed off as Supercars trying to control people as some seem to think. Some of the posts last year went quickly from banter to vile name calling and worse. We’re all passionate fans or we wouldn’t be here but there’s a line that should never be crossed!

Great to see some action brought in, to calm down what has been escalating to something that was becoming horrific to witness/read - about time it was reigned in! Hopefully it will make reading about this sport, and support from its fans through comment sections, enjoyable again. I can see some trying to 'test the limits' of it though, to see if they're serious about it - hopefully most will take this seriously.

Good to hear .. it often occurs to me that most of the monkey wrench comments come from people who don't realise that the fan base on the groups page includes younger fans as well .. ... i missed out by 3 people getting some merchandise signed but i didn't run down the drivers or the sport for it yet at the race there are numerous opinions overheard as you walk around the race grounds .. but none as bad as some of the banter on social media where people think they are safe to lash out .. ... scotty is probably one of the better drivers in the competition .. no doubts about tempers flying on track its a natural occurrence known as road rage off the track ... but professional drivers should know better .. it doesnt matter if its a ford or holden .. nissan .. porche .. toyota these drivers do thier best .. myself I've been watching scottys progress since i 1st saw him race in the Volvo.. keep up the good work scotty was great to see you win back to back championships ... i'll be there again next year to see you in Newcastle..

Great idea. Hopefully it applies to team owners and fellow competitors.

In other words, once Holden catches up to Ford after 7 adjustments, you can say "nice job Roland"

I hope Supercars do there bit and not thrash controversial stuff . Sometimes i think they go out of they way to wind up the fans .

It goes both ways. I’m giving the season three rounds to prove its worth watching and if its still like last year then I’m out. The fox subscription can go also.

Here’s to a brilliant year ahead. Champion drivers & team, powerful ponies, edge of your seat racing ❤️💛

Awesome idea..about time..as Mum always said if you haven't got nothing nice to say about people don't say anything ... So many rude and immature comments made about the Drivers and Teams over the years by supposed adults ..

Long over due, hopefully all the teams will adopt a similar stance and action on their own social media pages.

Very good idea, will mean I can use the comments to find either great light hearted messages or actual information, as apposed to "Team name here paying Supercars for this" which seems to be what it mostly has been recently...

How many strikes for a driver posting or saying on TV interviews offensive comments about another driver or team. Could soon run out of drivers, as well as F B fans . LOL🤣🤣🤣🤣

yes great start lets hope they crack down teams and the drivers along with having a think about the clickbait articles they do which incites a lot of stuff. This is a good starting point and lets hope they can make this area more professional

Reynolds and Walkinshaw won't last long in that case. I tweeted a Ford emblem to Ryan and "DJRTP 20 Penrite 0" to Dave and got blocked by both. Thin skinned for sure.

This is great..... some comments are truly terrible and the Ford v Holden thing just needs burying.

About time! I stopped following the Supercar Facebook page sometime ago as I got sick of reading the horrible comments

One of the worse socil media pages to be a part of I've found.. I think the only ones left there are ignorant bullies. So we'll see how that goes...

Fairly irrelevant. Supercars will be dead in three year's time.

Hope they deal it out to Drivers and owners so what happened doesn’t happen again. Hope this isn’t just so Supercars can stop any negative comments against themselves

Long overdue. Hopefully the toxicity in pit lane is also countered.

Some good news from supercars well done

The IndyCar should suit Scott being a gocart on steroids lol. Hope he and Roger Penske help grow and have success with this avenue.😎

Scott's talent and Penske backing, the world is his oyster..or stay at Supercars and become a gone nowhere has been.

Hope you did well in the Indy car and challenge yourself in what ever you want to do mate! Good luck next year in the stang hope you stick around but if you decide not too most will understand.

It's up to you Scotty #BacktoBack #Championships Won Bathurst I wish you all the best whatever your decision is but I hope you stay for another 2 years at least👍🏆🏆

Never want See Scotty leave the Super Cars for at least 2 years . Just want to see him piss of Roland and we know he is the best on the track knock them out Scotty in 2020 👍 And God Bless Rodger Penske

ENJOY Scotty, but make sure u come back to supercars xx

All the best in your life. There is more to the sport than supercars, go and enjoy them mate.

Well done mate you earned this! Congratulations not many driver get this chance.

Why would he stay in a sport that give him so much grief last season was the worst. He is true sportsman Scotty, good luck and enjoy the opportunity.

I selfishly don't want him to leave our shores because the long-suffering Ford fans in Australia have needed a hero like Scotty for a long time. But because I have so much admiration for him, I sincerely hope he kills it over there 👍

While it's great to see him doing this and I wish him all the best, damn it's going to suck not seeing him in the Mustang much longer.

Big things are coming your way Scott! How did it go? Would love to hear all about it. On the other hand, I cant wait for the v8 supercars season to start 😀

What an awesome opportunity for Scott, he’s a very talented guy! Good luck to him, he’s worked hard to get to this point in his career! Would be sad to see him leave Supercars, but who knows what the future holds for him! ❤️🚗💙

Congratulations Scott. From JANDAL to Indy car. It only feels like weeks since you uttered those now famous words.

Demo laps at Bathurst this year!!!

1 more year here then he’s gone sadly for us fans but wish him all the best cheers 🍻

What an excellent opportunity, whether it leads to a position in a US Penske team or not.

Based on the way he personally shouldered the blame for what his team did why would he want to hang around V8 Supercars if another opportunity comes along ?

With his talent was always going to happen good luck to him and he will be sorely missed in the supercars.

Scotty will go and drive for the bow tie next year

A Penske Nascar would get him to the front end of the grid.

Move on scott. You will be victimised by your ability. Holden must win at all cost, because of the bias in the sport

Interesting to see that Indy Car went for the screen option - F1 could have gone that way too but went for the Halo instead.

Keep your options open Scotty. I drove one of them at Las Vegas and got to 150.2mph

Hope we dont lose him from supercars!!

Good luck with the year. Hope you take it to them hard. But with all bullshit that happened last year with the supercars witch hunt i have no interest in watching it this year. Supercars has become a farcical.

2020 will be shell v power year I think this year there be more interesting winner's on the podium let's hope it's more fair.

Hopefully the shell cars get a new livery for this season.

Every time I see a pic of the workshop it looks like you can do surgery in there

Hopefully a different colour scheme this year! Love the old look but a change would be nice

Go Shell and make them look awesome. Can't wait to see the finishing cars 🏆👍😍😀

Any chance of a new Livery - my 1/18 scale collection starting to all look the same.

What pitty you weren't there when we came to the shop after you winning the championship to visit the meusum and buy Some gifts and souvenirs

Go Shell V can’t wait for the year to start Go Ford!!! 🏁🏆

Is that a third one I see in the back?

Love the current colour scheme👍

Love the shop pictures. I think its interesting that most Supercar teams use lifts while your NASCAR counterparts use jackstands.

Gee I would love to be younger and competent enough to work with a race team with a setup like that I would be in heaven

Hopefully you put a lil effort into a new livery 😂

Please get Roland Dane approval signed before trackside.😃

Probably just do a 4th year with the same livery as well... change it up a bit

You must be confident, Scotty still has orange numbers 😂😂

Hope they can build cars quicker than they send souvenirs from the shop

Starting from scratch or last year's chassis? Good luck this year

New livery for 2020 I hope

Time to get the whip out Ryan Story 🤣😂. See you’s at a race track this year 👍👍..

Shell V-Power Racing Team bring on 2020 and unleash those beasts and have another great year.

Bring it on Shell V Power our Champions 👍😁

Let’s hope they can have a clean year this time 🤔

I reckon you would get fired if you spilt some oil in there 😜🤣

Would love to bid but out of my price range now! Would be also nice to luck draw some items, ie for each $1 donated is an entry, so more of us can participate as a whole and feel part of it, with a chance to win!

What would be ideal is if Shell bought the helmet, suit and Scott threw in a pair of socks/shoes to match. Then Shell could auction off a full size Scott replica amoungst their gas stations, who could display it for a year, all proceeds going to charity. Then next year Shell would reauction it etc, etc. O f course Shell could go right over the top and make a "robot Scotty" that could engage with the Shell customers 🙂

Absolutely brilliant effort from Scotty Now Shell V-Power Racing Team unfortunately this helmet is out of the price range of 99% of us dedicated followers of You guys. How about you guys offer a heap of promo gear so that the rest of us can also have an opportunity to contribute to the bushfire appeal and also get some kind of keepsake in the way of Shell Racing gear. ✌️✌️🤘

My donations go to a fodder store here in Adelaide for feed for the live stock and wildlife affected by the Adelaide Hills fire,2020 year of the animals, unless you bring out more championship posters or Bathurst t-shirts

The Greatest Scott McLaughlin🏆🏆I would love the Kiwi Helmet if I had the $$$

Well done for this iniative.People are just wonderful .Well done

How about auctioning off a day at the races with DJR including a HOT LAP at every race this year.

Well Done Scott and well done to all the Australian Sports Men and Women for their Donations. This is why Australia is the best Country in the world. We all help each other when there is a Disaster. 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺

Well done Scott

well done Scott would like to see 888 and drivers do something

When I win Oz lotto tonight I will bid otherwise out of my league. Awesome of Scott to do this ❤❤❤

I challenge other teams/drivers to do the same.

👏👏. Well done 👍.

Wow Scotty is now also a legend off the track as much as he is on it 🙂

Onya Scotty, much appreciated mate. Personally I have been on the frontline fighting these fires since late October and the devastation has to be seen to be believed. Thank you.

Well Done Scott Thank you

Well done Sott, great gesture of support.

This is why you are the champion you are Scotty. Fantastic gesture when we need to pull together as a nation and help each other out.👍

Great gesture. It's out of my realm of possibility but we did donate

Thanks Scott! ❤️

Love your work Scotty

I love to see Roger loan Scott the 2018 one.

How kind of you. Good luck.

Bring on another championship this year it’s been so good as a 50 year ford supporter to finally have you dick and now with Penske enjoying the the long awaited success you and your team deserve, and not forgetting the mastery of scott and Fabian just so proud of them and the team go get em in 2020 👍👍👍

Bring it in 2020 , get good results and win more better than Whincup

40+ years of following DJR & now DJR Penske and all the highs and lows that went with it. I’d be hard pressed to remember when I was happier than with last years results. In 2020 all will start with a clean slate, it won’t be easy but hopefully the momentum has carried over and great results are on the way!

Yes 2019 was awesome, let’s go for the 3 peat and back to back Bathurst and show everyone that the Mustang was just one component because you need a great driver and a great team to be successful and DJRTP have all 3.

three peat would be amazing good luck in beating your goals for 2020 after amazing 2019. regards Brendan & Glenda

Happy New Year Shell V Power Team! Yes 2019 will be hard to beat, but i’m sure with an awesome team like yours we will be unstoppable! 💙🚗🎉🏆❤️

Happy new year to all at Shellvpowerracing, see you in 2020.🎉🎉🎉🍾🍾🍾🏁🏁

Happy new year guys Hope 2020 sees bigger and better success for you both 💛❤️💛❤️

Happy New Year everyone at DJR Team Penske good luck for the coming season. Let the Mustang reign supreme ❤️❤️❤️

There’s not much more to win but it would be good to see a pertek cup lol good Scott , fabs and the rest of team djrtp

Back-to-back, Scotty! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all the Team, here’s hoping for another winning year.

The entire team gave us a fantastic 2019. 2020 we won't complain when you do it all again, thank you.

Hey guys a repeat of 2019 would be GREAT that record breaking top ten for Pole position and then winning the grueling race was SENSATIONAL all the best for 2020 boys and DJ your a LEGEND mate. 👍

Bring It On? Absolutely yes. 2020 will be a big year, bigger than 2019! Happy New Year guys let's go racing! 👍👍👍🚗🚗🚗🏁🏁🏁😎😎😎

Happy new year to the best team around

Looking forward to the new year racing go FORD all the way👍👍👍👍👍👍

Your the kings! You rule! Shell v power >Scott McLaughlin > Fabian Coulthard

Happy New Year

You'd better sandbag it during testing or RedBull will smash you all season. You won nothing after the last "parity" adjustment.

Happy new year, one and all

Happy New Year for 2020 you guys have got this

Happy New Year 🎉🎉

A one, two, plus the teams thanks.

Happy New year 🍾🎆
