that 2011 cover looks pretty damn spectacular :P LOL

I do like to keep them and collect a few here and there as opportunities present but the cost to buy and then to ship to Oz will likely prohibit this one.

Sandown this weekend, boys.  I tell you, Aus TCR is worth a watch.  If I am watching it from HERE, you should be watching it from THERE.

well what'd you think? I got drenched!! and then hailed on to top it off at the end of their race...

loading my pics now to see what I got of that last lap t6 slide (when it started I had images in my head of another 86 moment!)

No.  I am waiting patiently for my source to provide it to me.  Maybe by the end of the day here?  ~14 hours behind you.

an even bigger drenching today... I am soaked! got some cool air shots in the final tcr race... keep an eye on my photo page :)

ha! I don't even remember how to post a pic in here... if I ever knew? if anyone wants to help out I found an online pic, nope, I don't even have any pics of my own car that I can think of but if you've seen one Commie, you've seen them all...

Blue 2009 VE Berlina... over 250,000km on the clock and still purring along nice enough.

points is an interesting idea. but then we would end up with a Kelly/Ingall champion trundling around for points.

if they can't build an engine that lasts at 10k revs, limit them to 9 (making up numbers for examples), they either want performance extremes or they don't

thing is, F1 is so stupidly overpriced it is ridiculous and, like SC, nobody has the balls to address it

Disappointed for Dan, and not too impressed with McLarens strategy for him..

yeah a shame to see him just stop at the end so the strategy wouldn't have worked anyway.

but to start 3/4 and end up nowhere again isn't good for them.

Max smashed them regardless.

Lewis did well coming from rear of grid.

these penalties are one hell of a joke... but nobody's laughing.

shame to end under a whole swag of SC laps

Last race was a cracker today

Fitting end for the track, sad to see it go

agree. a shame both Shane and Cam couldn't both take the win. they put on a hell of a show

pretty prejudicial of the media group to not show other views when they were available. they obviously CHOSE to release Will's judicial vision, no reason they couldn't do the same with other cars.
I don't think that vision is available during the broadcast. It's saved to a memory card in the car, and provided to race control after the race, and reviewed by officials over the next few weeks to check for cheating/etc.

It was only available in this case because the car crashed out and the footage was probably only handed over to the broadcast team because it seems like no other camera caught the incident at all. Supercars made a once off decision to release it early.

it remains prejudicial to only show one side of an argument.

disappointed for Will after the pitstop error

Cam put up a hell of a fight

Giz, what can you say... hell of a drive

14
tough luck for James on the start...

and pathetic effort really on this one to not red flag it for the concrete fence repair... lost a quarter of the race already under SC and now race control says they can do their CPS under SC without one lap of green racing.

this is the best we can do?

man I hate that the show is only available to watch on the net... with such crappy service available in metro Melbourne (YES TELSTRA, METRO MELBOURNE!!!!!!) I keep getting lag and haven't even seen the start of this current race properly, only know there are a few damaged cars.

be nice if we could get a half decent net to watch online shows.
