Given what's been happening in other sports or civic functions with the Anthem and other traditions this saddens me as its becoming norm now to not risk offending SOMEONE. I do hope SC are not enrolling in the PC brigade? Like the Anthem or not its IS our song at least stand for it don't sing it is ok. I would like though when it is sung by whoever they sing it as it should be not butchered like some try and do.

I actually like our anthem and love hearing, we don't need it played on the grid before every Supercars race though

When I was a kid I remember going to ATCC/V8SC rounds and they would play the anthem and a chaplain's prayer over the PA after all the categories had finished their Sunday morning warmup prior to the first event of the day on the program

That was the perfect way of doing it in my opinion

I think there should be a Welcome to Country at some point during each event.

This is actually something I am surprised they haven't adopted yet.

It would have to be the crappest national anthem going.


Are you kidding?

It's one of the best national anthems in the world.

Have you heard some of the anthems from Asian and Middle Eastern countries - they are truly terrible.

I'm indifferent. Anthems seem suitable when it's two countries competing against each other and both anthems are played beforehand, or only the winner's anthem is played afterwards. For Supercars it feels like more pomp than necessary. Same goes for the excessive size of some of the trophies.

Love how people are complaining about a pastor praying for the safety of the drivers ...... wonder what would happen if the drivers complained are your beliefs?

I will only do it if I can shoot the ones I don't like! Reckon we would need a general elction after my first day!
I don't mind things changing if there is value to be added, but not to appease hostile immigrants! SVG should be allowed to do a skid on some of these decision makers heads!( He does the best skids).

New Commodore Hey! So you used your own money? Would you like to buy a used bridge?
