    As the Red Bull chief said during the telecast, it helped them too for the same reason. It meant Van Gisbergen wasn’t double stacked pitting. But it wasn’t good look. The following pack absolutely disappeared at Conrod

    In all honesty, not a lot of punters give a flying fart about the result these days. Holden......Ford, marques from an era gone by. The Ford guys are loving it, but at the end of the day, is anybody out there influenced enough by yesterday's result to go out and buy a car because a particular brand won at Bathurst? I highly doubt it.

    Does everyone agree there should be a supercars round through the streets of Parramatta around the Park and maybe the stadium? Would be a neat hybrid street circuit/dedicated track.

    Give them 10 free tickets each. The NIMBYs were actually the best advertisement we could have possibly had for the Newcastle 500. They never shut up about it in the Newcastle Herald and boom 200k people responded.

    The brilliance of the track itself keeps it relevant to fans of motor sports even when the series itself is pretty boring.

    To be fair, what else is there to do in Newcastle?

    Get knicked. The beach, mountain biking, and our women are much better looking than where ever you are from.

    The Lime Scooter 1000 isn't that far away.

    At least the ferry to Stockton is included on a sunday Opal ticket for $2.50. What makes Newcastle women better looking than from anywhere else?

    No you don't get it. I think I've watched well over 6000 laps of Bathurst over the years. It's the evolution to where we are now that makes me not give a flying fart about the outcome.

    Maybe they could teach the Knights something.
