Yeah, me too. I would've thought he'd be worth a third rounder.

Very disappointed - he may not quite be LeCras or Kennedy standard, but he was a solid and reliable performer for the most part. He just had a bad year. Hopefully we'll clean up for the rest of our trades.

Was wondering if you were around today or if you'd gone to Mt Panorama.

As I said elsewhere, Bathurst may not be quite what it used to be, but it can still deliver a spectacular crash on lap one. Now looks like the weather's turning bad - hell yes. Bring it on!

Ew, just noticed one of the cars has the Magpies logo on it. Didn't see which car though.

It's probably Jason Bright. He's a Pies supporter.

Luke Youlden just hit the wall on the climb. Holdsworth & Besnard look like they've got it sown up.

this is the i think third or fourth year in a row i haven't been to Bathurst... planning to go up with mates next year. in lieu of the Denny ute muster.

just on that - what exactly do you mean? are you talking about the actual cars, how they're not really Holdens or Fords, has the improvement of the cars been detrimental to the race in your view? it's an interesting point you make...

I think we've discussed before that I miss the days when there were more manufacturers and multiple classes. I can understand removing multiple classes, since the slower cars could be said to clog up the track, but we really need more manufacturers.

Beyond that, I feel like every year, Bathurst looks more and more like any old race circuit rather than a regular road, so I feel like it's lost some charm there. And I may be old enough to remember Bathursts with multiple manufacturers/classes, but I wish I were old enough to have seen the races when the cars were little more than basically off the showroom floor.

It's still the Great Race to me, no question about that, but I'd at least like it to have a bit more flavour than it currently does.

After such an exciting start, today's proceedings haven't really been that exciting, except for the battle between Lowndes and Holdsworth (or was it Besnard in the car when Lowndes finally got past? Forgotten now) and Youlden's encounter with the wall. This won't exactly go down as the most dramatic or topsy-turvy Bathurst in history unless some crazy shit goes down soon.

well history says something will happen in the final hour, but you're right, it won't go down as one that sticks in the mind, in this, the 30th anniversary of Dick & the rock.

that Lowndes/Besnard battle was brilliant though. riveting stuff

Yeah, Lowndes vs Besnard was the one time when I was really riveted and didn't want to move away for any reason. Otherwise I've found myself at the computer (with half an eye on the telly) much more than I expected to be this year.

Thanks to that drive-through, Holdsworth/Besnard now have a shitload of work to do unless they can score a favourable safety car. Speaking of the safety car, Seton/Bargwanna gone just now ...

nice touch with the form finish... payback for '77. but it's not quite the same when Holden outnumbers Ford so greatly.

By this time next year, I'll be surprised if I remember anything from this race other than Coulthard's spectacular early exit.

North did pretty well.

they got rid of dead wood "i kicked eight goals against Geelong once" Hale and picked up McKinley for nothing.

Is it just myself in thinking that Tarrant is a bit of an arsehole?
