    Damn - missed my work by 1 year. I worked on them for a few years up to 1996.

    The 2021 Supercars season is wrapping up this month.

    Starting now we have four consecutive weekends at Eastern Creek with various night races and different formats.

    Following that there is a week break before the Bathurst race week. Tuesday will see the start of support category racing with various classes coming and going over the next five days until the Bathurst 1000 on December 5th.

    COVID obviously brought about this format with a lengthy shut down to racing in Australia across the middle of the year, and I love it.

    Camaro is here - had a track day with one last weekend.
    They are horribly expensive compared to the Mustang. Mustangs are 55k, 65k for v8. Camaro is closer to 90k. 160k for the ZL1

    The Camaro is converted from LHD, the Mustang is manufactured are RHD

    How is this for a state election result:

    When COVID struck the right wing Liberal South Australian government cancelled the Adelaide street race, and later announced that the race would not return. They planned to rip up the parkland section of the circuit where pit lane lies and turn it into a green space.

    State election rolls around and the left wing Labor party candidate promises to reinstate the race should they win. That election was on this weekend and Labor absolutely rolled the Liberals by a huge margin.

    The race hasnít been officially confirmed yet (give it time) but itíll be on this year in December. Woo!
