Re: The Poms are copying us!

Nothing new. Funny, they fundamentally established Australia to what it is yet it's the Aussies that they get ideas from. What's happening with them, are they stuck back in the olden days?

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

Agreed Lunatic.....can you tell us why NASCARs are so popular in the US where they could be watching CART, Indy, F1, our V8SC even??? IMO NASCAR is a cure for insomnia :)

Remember Jeff Gordon trying out the Williams F1 car recently.....couldn't drive it for s@#t, whilst JPM had a pretty good go in Gordon's Chevy.

Australia Vs England (the second ashes).

Now THAT I'd like to see! For all is detractors, I reackon the Aussie V8 Supercars put on a really good show. The main downside IMHO is the over enthusiastic stewards who want to destroy the racing.

But yeah, imagine the Brits comming out here for a few races, including Bathurst!

Bring it on!

Jeff Gordon was only 1.3sec slower than Montoya in the Williams F1 on the same day.
