Now for another spoiler.  https://www.speedcafe.com/2021/12/08/bathurst-1000-attendee-tests-positive-for-covid-19/   
Now we might just have the Covid 1000 to follow the Bathurst 1000.

Parts of Mount Panorama have been listed as venues of concern after an attendee at this year’s Great Race tested positive for COVID-19.

The declaration came from the Western New South Wales Local Health District today, just three days after this year’s Repco Bathurst 1000.

Anyone who attended the event and visited the venues of concern on Saturday and Sunday should monitor for symptoms and get a COVID test and isolate if symptoms develop​.

The McPhillamy Park Campground, The Paddock Campground, Harris Park, Merchandise Alley, National Motor Racing Museum, and Inside Chase viewing area have been listed as concerns.

All attendees at the Bathurst 1000 were required to be double vaccinated.

New South Wales endured a lengthy lockdown before reopening its domestic borders in the lead-up to the Bathurst 1000.

International border restrictions were eased not long before the Great Race, allowing the likes of Matt Campbell, Christopher Mies, Roberto Merhi, and Yoshiaki Katayama to head Down Under.

Western New South Wales Local Health District, Venues of Concern:

I feel the same way. I think the race would be far better if Hamilton had a one point lead. Max has shown since Monza that as long as he has the championship lead (even by countback) he'll happily take them both off the track.

don't forget Sandown had multiple layouts over the years as well as an extended section on the infield on the back straight.

Winton also has 2 versions as does Calder (seems Vic love 2 versions on one track :D )

then Adelaide and GC street circuits both had short and long

bit sad that NT only has the one track!
Yep, same goes for Oran Park, SMP and Bathurst up here! For simplicity's sake I am going to keep the circuits to their most recent or most used layout. As in the world circuits graphic, I will probably include both for Adelaide and the Gold Coast, though.

It's been cool looking up the old Australian Grand Prix circuits. They were mainly either held on public roads or on airfields so it is interesting to look at where they were on Google Maps now.

Here's a little preview. NSW, ACT and Tasmania finished and a few Victorian circuits. Kudos if you can name the largest one without looking it up.

I must say though, they treat it well!

The family went up (without me) a few months ago. Decided to goto the track as a once off to have a look.
Ended up getting a full tour from the GM and a few hats/shirts! He was just stoked about the place. Similar to SMP, they have something on track most days and it gets some decent funding to keep it desirable.

Hit the nail on the head!

I'd avoid adding hillclimbs, as many will be single point to point squiggly lines.

A while ago I came across this cool graphic featuring famous race circuits of the world, drawn to scale:
https://www.carthrottle.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/race-tracks-to-scale-2.jpg

Since then I have wanted to make an Australian version. I wanted to see if anyone on here had any thoughts on which circuits should be included. My current list is below; it includes all circuits that have hosted the Australian Grand Prix and all ATCC and Supercars Championship circuits. The extras which are neither Grand Prix nor ATCC circuits are Catalina, Mount Druitt, Wakefield Park, Morgan Park, Baskerville, Aspendale and Hume Weir.

There are so many more Australian circuits in history (see http://theracingline.net/racingcircuits/Australia/index.html). Does anyone think other circuits deserve to be drawn up? I am also considering whether to include well-known hill climbs, speedways and even places like Lang Lang.

ACT
Canberra

NSW
Amaroo Park
Catalina
Gnoo Blas
Mount Druitt
Mount Panorama
Newcastle
Olympic Park
Oran Park
Sydney Motorsport Park
Wakefield Park
Warwick Farm

NT
Hidden Valley

QLD
Gold Coast
Lakeside
Leyburn
Lowood
Morgan Park
QLD Raceway
Southport
Surfers Paradise
Townsville

SA
Adelaide International
Adelaide Parklands
Lobethal
Mallala
Nuriootpa
Port Wakefield
Tailem Bend
Victor Harbor

TAS
Baskerville
Longford
Symmons Plains

VIC
Albert Park
Aspendale
Calder (w/ Thunderdome)
Hume Weir
Phillip Island (GP circuit)
Phillip Island (road circuit)
Point Cook
Sandown
Winton

WA
Caversham
Narrogin
Wanneroo

Every so often you see a story on getting it back up and running again, unfortunately that is not going to happen.🥲

I never got there when it was running sadly.

I believe they have half buried the race track several years ago when the weir wall needed urgent reinforcing making a Jesus like resurrection impossible.

Repco Supercars Championship / Re: 2021 stats
« Last post by REM on Yesterday at 10:24:39 AM »
Anton's figures for poles, front row starts and even race wins are pretty good for his first year in a new team.
I expect they will be even better next year.

If I were to put money on the Championship winner for next year, it would be him.
I think SVG will still be the man to beat, but I think Anton will be his closest challenger. Throw in Waters if Tickford find some consistency, Mostert and Percat with WAU continuing on an upward trend, and the Erebus guys with their rookie seasons behind them. Along with Feeney, who I think will be fast but inconsistent, and Davison, who will be consistent if not quite as fast, the top nine could be hotly contested.

4 rounds at SMP Tickford's bogey track really killed their progress this year, Waters was 3rd and even JC was in the 10 up till that point, a proper season should suit them and Randle should go alright too.....
