Bathurst

Who is looking forward to the big race?

I followed the touring cars as a kid and was a Dick Johnson tragic, but I lost interest when he retired and all the cars started looking the same. Drivers were swapping teams between Holden and Ford and I didn’t follow it for decades.

When Dick Johnson joined with Penske, I found myself sucked right back in again and I am to the point now that I love it.

So, grab ya Winny Reds, a stezza with some Acca Dacca on it, ya favourite flanny and GO SCOTTY McLACHLAN!!!

  • I still watch it. But don't really have the interest like I used to. As you say, all the cars are the same now and it used to be a lot more chaotic when it wasn't part of the championship as you had privateers in all sorts of cars lining up for that one race against the pro teams. 

    Plus, I was a Peter Brock fan for so long, followed him from the HDT days, then in his various Mobil 1 Racing cars (Commodore, BMW, Sierra then back to a Commodore, then I started follwing HRT when he joined them in 1993. When HRT folded and merged with Triple 8 Racing, I lost interest in that team and started following David Reynolds, mainly because of his stunner of a missus. 

    • Yes, Ms Reynolds is quite the catch for Dave.

      I am enjoying watching the Mustangs succeed and they are very different looking to the Holdens.

      Man they look awesome and I hope that we see a couple of Mustang drivers on the podium.

      Chaz Mostert is smashing it this year and may be a smokey.

      • Mostert Looks the goods at the moment

        • Farking safety cars!

          Jizzcup / Lowndes will be hard to beat.

           

          • The pussy wagon has driven like the stereotypical woman driver 

            • Haha, yep.

              How good was that race?

              Bloody awesome.

               

              • Bathurst never fails to deliver. And no refereeing controversy. I was on Reynolds all day, and until that last safety car, he was right there. Always love watching Bathurst no matter who wins

  • Race day.

    Bring it on and go Scotty!

  • Scott McLachlan's win is tarnished in my eye's, the tactics emplyoed by team Shell to blatantly hold back the field with their 2nd car during a safety car period robbed Van Gisbergen the opportunity to be in the lead for the final few laps.  He had a 10 secong fuel advantage which means he would have come out in the lead after the final pit stop.

    • LOL nothing compared to the dirty tactics that Red Bull have used over the years.

      SVG did very similar to yesterday, last year.

      What goes around comes around...
