    It makes watching NASCAR like watching old ladies racing wheelchairs.

    Race from Victoria on Speed now, Bathurst 1000 on next weekend.

    If you've never watched the Aussie V8 Supercars you're missing some good auto racing, those guys kick ass!

    I've watched bits, looks like a fun series. :thumb


    Need to set the DVR for Bathurst--- last time I tried Speed didn't have it in the schedule yet.

    Rumor has it they will be racing in Austin, TX sometime in 2013. I'd probably go to that before F1.

    IMO, this is what racing is all about. Not a NASCAR fan, except for those 2 races per year they have to turn right.

    They are sending these to Texas in 2013, I wonder if they will send the support race cars over as well

    Texas next year?

    Hell yeah!

    I better start planning now.

    If the shitheads hadn't torn out the road course at Talladega they could have run there. :badly

    I'm only about 20 minutes from Talladega and 40 - 45 from Barbers, I like it when they do fun shit close to home. :nod

    made it thru the first 102 laps. then i had to go home. don't have speedchannel at my house but tricked my nascar bud into watching by splaining a holden is a chevy and as long as its beating a ford he'll stay tuned in..

    them vodafone fellers had their sh!t together. i'll find out in the morn if they made it to the end without making a mistake.

    the gold coast in 2 weeks looks like a tighter track. maybe more action..

    Reviving an old thread; fast forward to 2013 - Circuit of the Americas May 17-19.

    I'm tentatively planning riding over from SoCal and need some help/advise on somewhere cheap nearby to stay for a couple of nights while the event is on.

    Any tips/suggestions (I might be sounding wimpy, but this will be a 3k mile round trip for me, so I'd rather not lug camping gear)

    Cheers,
    Jack
