For motor racing fans the Bathurst 1000 is on this Sunday, it's a mad race of 1000km up, down & around a mountain, google up "bathurst hot lap nascar driver" you'll luv it!

Looks like a great time! Never did care for Waltrip but going fast has always been fun. I run a street stocks and IMCA modifieds even late model for a number of years but the v8 supers really look like fun!

The Race starts in about 1hrs(for us) time also got an American Alex Rossi & a Canadian James Hinchcliff paring up together to come & play, their both good racers in their own right but the Bathurst 1000 is something else again.

It was a good nail biter & all boiled down to who had the best fuel strategy as well as a large slice of luck! It's been said that you don't have to be insane to drive in Bathurst, but it sure helps! The USA/CAN. team went about 130 laps before stuffing it up(which isn't hard at Bathurst) but they gained great experience for next year.
