Bring back Bathurst with a 24hour race and a LeMans start with categories based on retail price and at least 1000 registrations with a $50k cap. Cars to have the usual roll cages and harnesses but everything stock, gravity fed pump fuel only and let's see which cars are relevant for us in different market segments. Besides demolition derbies between under $15k racing against $45-$50k would be lots more fun and not always forgone conclusions with tyre wear and fuel stops.

PS: Might be a lesser registrations but you want to race and nominate a particular priced model and the scrutineers get to choose one anonymously and regd straight from any dealer showroom and apply the seals to the mechnical components and that's the one you race boyoh. Oh and no comms between pits and driver other than pit boards in pit lane and driver drives by his gauges only and any pre-testing re fuel, brake and tyre stops and do as much running in and wear testing as you like because that's the equipment you'll start with.

There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

Mind you the good old days could certainly produce some rubbish-
Largest Crash in NASCAR History Small | Large

although that clip cuts off a race mechanic with a fag hanging out his mouth furiously working on a car to get it back in the restart.
Now Demetriou and the usual nanny staters won't even let AFL footballers slide to get the ball in case an opponent gets a bruise on their shin. The pussymakers!

This looks good.  1976 season -  Hunt V Lauda.
On a side note, 3 Aussie's on the grid at various stages during the season and the legendary Tyrrell 6 wheeler debuts.

*Rush* - Official Trailer (2013) - Chris Hemsworth Racing Movie


Fingers crossed this is of the 'Grand Prix' and 'Le Mans' standard of racing movie and not Sly Stalones 'Driven' drivel...
Directed by Ron 'Happy Days' Howard.

Yep, been looking forward to this. The preview looks awesome. They've used some original footage too, which is good to see. That's what made "Grand Prix" (epic film) and "Le Mans" so good, strap a camera to the cars and make a film out of it!
A Prost vs. Senna film would be great too!

"the legendary Tyrrell 6 wheeler debuts"

How awesome was that car? What a concept !
Why do people ask "What the hell were you thinking?"
Obviously I was thinking I was going to get away with it and not have to explain it....

My favorite 'real' race car of all time! (I even got a remote control model Tyrrell P34 for christmas in the late 70's, only went straight ahead and reverse left)  I love the outside of the square thinking, this, the Brabham fan car and nearly every dirt speedway and drag car from the 70's.

Looks fantastic, that was one great era of F1 be interesting to see how Howard does it, race movies are not always that successful, le mans is one but for me it's one of my favorite movies. The direction is very unique to that era almost documentry like and the car scenes! there's  some insane period of time when there is no dialogue but just the engines, awesome! Hows that crash scene???


Here for a good time, not a long time!
