Poor Stu was struggling with the vocal chords at the end there!

What Stu lacks in professionalism he makes up with enthusiasm.

That was a good night. I brought along a friend of over 50 years standing for his first visit to the Speedway. He couldn't believe what he saw. He rang me a couple of days later, saying he was still getting clay dust out of nostrils and his hair. He quoted Donald Rumsfeld when I asked him about his impression of Sprintcar racing: "Shock and awe, mate. Shock and awe."

At the end of that video, you'll see Rev Garry Coleman in the burgundy and grey jacket, who sprinted to Mitch's crashed car, and soon after, Grandpa Sid Moore arrives, and wants to grab the microphone. Stu deflects Sid, showing some professionalism to match his enthusiasm. At the time, Stu was working for Max, and living at the Dumesny's place, which would account for some of his enthusiasm.

Anyhow, I posted that link to show Robbie doing what he does. Maybe it was unintentional, but I don't think so. He would have known Mitch was probably right on his tail, and he would have heard him coming. A slight move to the right, and Mitch was launched. Right front rather than right rear, but same result.

WSS: Has there yet been any telecasts, either TV or on line, of the current World Series Sprints season? I usually get my Winter (here) fix off of the net.

The World Series has moved to paid online streaming this year.

Hopefully the Classic and the Australian Title will be produced as highlights and shown on TV like they have been the past few years.

I wonder if only attracting 6 contracted WSS drivers this year hurt their bank balance enough that they couldn't afford the FTA TV?

Forecast to be 46 at 3pm, 42 at 7pm, 37 at 8, and dropping to 33 sometime after 9pm. That's after 2 or 3 days and nights of similar temperatures. Apart from the track being absolutely baked dry (and I wouldn't like to be the poor bugger trying to curate the track during the day today), that's pretty hot, without having to get into all your fireproof gear and sit next to a red hot, 410 aluminium engine.

I don't remember any meeting at PCR being cancelled because of the heat before either, but I don't remember so many other events being cancelled on the one day due to the heat either. Horse races, all grade cricket, etc. I do remember plenty of nights in the pits being stinking hot, sweaty and dusty, wondering whether I was there because I liked it that much. I wasn't going to go tonight because of the heat before it got cancelled anyway, so perhaps PCR thought lots of others were thinking the same.

It certainly would be extremely uncomfortable, no, make that dangerous, in all your kit.
As sad as it is to see it cancelled, it certainly is the right decision.
Zac I think it would be hotter in a Super that a Sprintcar...

You guys are welcome to that honour - if they were racing tonight.
It's not sad, it's great. I'll spend the evening on a terrace with fans blowing chilled air at us, enjoying a few drinks. Beats being baked in a heatwave getting covered in dust. (I think I'm getting old.)
