SUPERCARS - Bathurst !!

Post by Alby on Sun Oct 13, 2013 4:08 pm

The weather down here is crappy today.... perfect for sitting down to pure V8 racing for the day !!!
161 laps of the Mount Panorama circuit up around Andrews way at Bathurst.
I know we've spoken about it before but there's no track this tough on the planet.
It's also a gusty, windy day up there which makes it even harder when up along the mountain part of the track.
This year there are other Manufactures in the mix... Mercedes and Nissan to compliment the Ford and Holdens.
A couple of good stacks so far... 60 odd laps to go...

Sorry guys but I can't stomach the NASCAR çircle racing (cars all look the same) and the little buzz boxes in Britain.


Might even watch the Formula One racing straight after...

Wow !!!
That is the best race I've watched. You had Winterbottom and Wincup racing for 1st then a short gap back to 4 cars battling it out for 3rd. Damn !! what a race.
Winterbottom/Richards Team won a heartstopper.

Not a fan of auto racing at all; feel it is a waste of resources and contributes to keeping the combustion engine and fossil fuels around when the world should have moved past that. And you are right about NASCAR... Driving in a circle and not getting dizzy. Prerequisite is the ability to turn left. Only one in the world that struggles with that is Zoolander.

Not bad when you consider 1-5 seconds between 1st and 4th and over a 1000 klm stint.

Yes indeed.
And Tracy... I do agree in general terms about car racing, but the petrolhead in me allows one guilty pleasure per year with the V8s and that is the Bathurst race. We may even get Mark Webber for the odd one over the next few years as he is retiring from Formula One.

I am addicted to the F1's though... can't help that...
