What you do for Bathurst.

Well we all know the biggest race of the year is this weekend and im sure many of you are heading down to the Mount for weekend. But for those that cant make it what do you do or where do you go to watch the big race??

I personally just like to stay at home where i feel comfortable.

Thumbs up Re: What you do for Bathurst.

It would be cool if FF organised a Bathurst "pub venue" in each capital city, where we could all watch it on the big screen whilst getting stuck
into a few pints of the good old stuff!

Suggestion for Melbourne: One of those pubs in Hawthorn. eg 'The Geebung'

Re: What you do for Bathurst.

I'm stuck at work with no TV, no radio and working the entire time it's on, plus no one will cover my shift.

Spare a thought for me please! I can't stand the fact i'm missing out, I watch it EVERY year without fail.

Re: What you do for Bathurst.
