The Sandown 500 has officialy been demoted to a sprint race. The 500 will now be Phillip Island.

I'm not too sure how I feel about this, I love Sandown... at least it's still in Victoria.

What?! Was that an expected move? I mean, I haven't kept up with the V8 news - as I mentioned in my first post on this thread - so that took me by surprise. But were those of you following the racing also taken by surprise?

Well at least they are named after a animal and rabbits can be fierce, i had to get a tetanus once from a bunny scatch, what can blossoms do, unless you snap off a branch and start smackin' somone with it........ "The brave blossoms"

We should re-name the Wallabies the "Wobbly Wattles"

Good man.
Well it wasn't completey unfounded... but it's mainly centers around the issues Tony Cochrane has with it. I like it. I hope he goes. I don't like him. But the alternative is John Hewson...

Do you think Kevin will win it?

Ha, touche. Though, still - your Super 14 rugby team is named after a flower! Who the hell calls their team the Waratahs? I suppose it does sound kind of neat, but if you know what a waratah is, it's damn hard to take seriously.

And I've always known the Wallabies as the Wannabes.

I've no damn clue who either of those individuals are in your first paragraph. Does this just prove I'm out of it, or are you trying to out-obscure me to get back at my unheard-of music?

I think Kevin will get the majority of the vote, but due to seat distribution, that doesn't guarantee an election victory. I'm a little worried, but hesitantly optimistic.

PS, re "centers": American English = bad English. Centres = good English. (What? I had to get back at your Chisel/Barnsey nitpick. )

Yes it was a suprise, apparently the pits are not good enough anymore and Melborne Racing Club are not forthcoming with the $$ to spend upgrading the track and pits. Tony Cohrane is the V8 supercars chairman.

Never really knew there was an issue, the articles that they have about it really do not pin point the exact problems with the track they just said they needed upgrading.

on the first two counts.

Now with the French!

PS Can we bump Bathurst back a week? That'd really suit my essay-writing schedule much, much better. I'm going to be so fucking dead next weekend it's not funny. RWC quarter-finals AND Bathurst AND a 2,000 word essay to finish. Joy of joys.

It would be grand if they could just put Bathurst in late October, November (There is nothing on at all for us in November!).......Bathurst always falls on our daughter's B'day.....so hubby has to miss her birthday every other year....he is not going to Bathurst this year. I don't mind Bathurst myself but Philamy Park is not a place for young families.

November is just a lost month, really. The rugby's either over or gone to the Northern Hemisphere, there's nothing like Bathurst, and the cricket's yet to fully hit its stride. All that's notable is the Melbourne Cup, but I don't care much for horse racing and that's a meagre couple of minutes anyway.

But first Sunday of October's tradition, so ...
