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...

"Hope the Eels win by a huge margin. It's difficult to predict mainly due to the Eels unconvincing form. Depends which Eels team turn up. I'll say Eels by 8 points. Man of Match Gutherson."

"Sharks have shaky defence, hard to see them holding the Eels out for extended periods. Hoping to see an improved effort from the Eels building pressure with a fast start and good line speed, the points will follow. Eels 36-18. MoM Nathan brown."

Game Day Blog - Sharks vs Eels

Well, this is a danger game for our Eels IMO. The Sharks are on a bit of a roll with 3 wins on the trot. The Eels also have won their past 3 games, but haven't exactly been convincing.I thought our opponents in the Bulldogs last week, were probably…

Penrith are the team to beat.

Who watching the Panthers? Boy they are playing fantastic football, big quick outside backs, strong forwards, great in attack & defence. Smashing Canberra 24-0 at half time & Canberra ain’t playing bad, will we be ready for them? Who can stop them?
