Biggest motor sport event of the year for this part of the world. 6 hour endurance race. The only reason I will move from the TV is to go to the bathroom. Just think 650 hp Taxi's. Holden = Chevrolet on this side of the world. So it's Ford vs Chev!!!!

I love Ozzie v8's whish we had more coverage and Bathurst is by far one of the cooliest tracks on the planet.

Check out Utube in a few days there should be some coverage by them. Qualifying is on there already.
Yes Bathurst is a real drivers track. Hoping to see 300kph on the back straight this year maybe??? 298kph(186mph) was the fastest speed last year. Yee Haaa!!!!!

Baath-hurst!!!! Not a stupid question. American English is more correct to the way words are spelt.

Try this one then! The driver slows down just as he gets onto Conrod straight because the 2 cars behind him crash.

SPEED stopped showing the Aussie V8 Supercars after 2007 unfortunately (so they could have more time for 'reality' shows like Stinks and Drag Race High :rolleyes:).

Bathhurst used to be clipped to two hours. I burned a couple seasons of coverage to DVD before SPEED dropped it. Sometimes I replay the races on my track video screens while we are racing.
