20 laps to go in the 2005 Bathurst 1000

141 of 161 laps completed and a yellow flag has bunched the top drivers up again in a sprint to the finish. This race has had a lot of crashes, this is the 7th yellow flag.
There has been a deal of controversy regarding the wearing (or not wearing of balaclavas). At the moment Murphy, Whincup, Kelly and Skaife are all up there with a chance. Ambrose is right behind them and is my pick. He has already been penalised twice, once with a drive through, and once with putting a balaclava on. In my opinion, even though this is a requirement for both safety and insurance purposes, penalising drivers with stop go penalties etc is ridiculous. Take it out of the points they win instead.
I hope Ambrose wins anyway.
