I can't believe that I wanted to grow up

Not again, you two are incorrigible. :) :whip2: :whip2: Don't you know there is a time and a place.

 

The guy on the racing line should have had his racing license taken off him.

I would have liked to see a heart monitor on that guy, like you sometimes see in the V8's. Probably would have been off the charts.

I haven't been a follower of motor sport for a long time. We have no TV here, & I've been here for over 20 years.

 

Having had a quick look at a link provided above, I see that Audi, Porsche & the like are involved in the 12 hour. Which is fantastic. Having the GT cars racing will provide far more interest for the viewers, & a good deal more competition than the V8 super heroes are used to in this country.

 

It's great to see cars racing that don't all look the same, like unfortunately the Commodores & Falcons do these days. I mean no offence to those who avidly follow the Oz V8 when I say that, it is just my personal opinion. ;)

 

All in all, great stuff.


I used to be surprised that I was still surprised by my own stupidity, finding it strangely refreshing.

Well I don't now.

I'm over it!

I have to agree with that, also with no offence intended. But it was satisfying to see local V8 hero Craig Lowndes setting the fastest race lap in the Team Aussie Audi R8 though (yes, I know; 'home' advantage and all that).

Nice shots Brendan, but then we'd expect that from you.


Computers. They'll never catch on.
