Awesome news. Still prefer Adelaide, but this is a solid replacement for the time being.

It's certainly going to have a different feel about it being the first round as opposed to the last. Should hopefully see a little more risk taking.

I'm glad to see them pursuing this as it likely means they will go ahead with the 12 Hour in a local capacity.

Not sure about that, some drivers just try to come out unscathed to get a good start on the year. Only way we’ll see more action is to either have a bigger point difference between positions or cash per placing.

Welcome aboard, Kenny.

Allow me to introduce you:  Kenny is a good hitter on a few sites I frequent to "find" my Supercars fix.  And years ago, he was a regular on an old website run by our good buddy Craig (Wiked), which is now no longer.  A welcome addition to our "new" site.

Mar 4-6 would seem to put to bed early any talk of the F1 labour day weekend in Vic. (the next weekend)

The GP is likely to be 10th April so I reckon Round 3 of both our calendar and F1.

Also means that any covid concerns around that part of the world may have quelled by then. It is pretty bad down that way at the moment.
