Post Fuel Crisis Bathurst 1000

After another one of THOSE IRC sessions - the following is offered as a preview of the Bathurst 1000 after the next fuel crisis.

The great race will be renamed the Bob Jane Shoe-ing 1000 Camel Race.

Grid Girls will be dressed in full Yashmaks.

TWR will field 5 camels, with 3 humps for better downforce.

Ozemail will field 2 camels but the leading one will break a leg with 5 laps to go

DJR will field 2 camels which will take each other out at the start of the race and one of the drivers will shitcan how well the camels run.

GSR will field 2 llamas because they were confused with the new rules.

One of the K-Mart camels will get a 5 minute penalty for spilling water in pit lane.

TWR will build a special "long nose" camel for Skaife.

The Prodrive camels will go to court (and lose) about the rights to run camels with 2 seperate liveries, they will then run the most ridiculous livery ever which is a combination of the two liveries on each camel.

The 00 team will complain about rules that were used this year that werent last year when it was a car race.

The FF Pits will be full of whining about the TWR camels having traction control and the fancy nuts on the TWR camels.

Ford and holden will both leave the championship to go to Formula 1 because they dont like the idea of having the same camels.

Mitsubishi will ask for permission to run a rally prepped camel.

People will complain about the irrelevance of running camels and demand the capacity be changed to 5.4 Litres in the ford camels, 5.7 litres on the holden camels

TWR's head genetic engineer will be under scrutiny after comments in the FF pits, but will soon be forgotten after a large envelope is delivered to the investigating officers house.

Peter Brock will come out of retirement (again) in an attempt to win that elusive 10th Bathurst in the 05 Camel complete with Polariser.

I heard a rumour SBR were looking at Saudi Arabia to recruit gun camel riders for the 2003 season.

Australia exports camels to Saudi but call them a different name (goats I think) so they don't think they are an inferior product.

Now that's top quality. Which team would get banned for the camel spitting?

Apparently yet again, Mark Larkham was unluckily biffed from behind by a rogue camel, which consequently resulted in a camel pile-up. Russel Ingall was declared the offender and was denied 2 litres of water at the next pitstop!
