I'd say they'll be racing Holdens.
Holden is dropping their backing....no mention of banning the use of their brand of car ?

Yep. I reckon they'll run the current cars for a while longer, updating where possible.

Heres an investment!

Number 505 Conrod Straight, Bathurst is up for sale, offering motorsports fans a piece of the sacred mountain that goes by the name Panorama.

Yep, for a lazy $2 million you can buy the best seats in the house at the Bathurst 1000 for the next half century, with an uninterrupted view of the fastest slice of blacktop in Australia – the crest of Conrod Straight and into The Chase.

It’s no news that The Mountain is a public road for all but four weekends of the year, making Conrod a part of your daily commute and the Bathurst circuit a relative bitumen moat around your very own castle. It’s the vibe of the thing..

Looks like a wet Bathurst on the cards 4 to 15mm rain tipped for Sunday. That will spice things up nicely. :D

In the words of Neil Crompton....... just add water

Cant wait, I'm in the process of organizing a wifi extender so I can lie in my hammock in the humpy up the back and stream the race to a smart TV.

Bathurst forecast for Sunday -

Chance of any rain: 100%
That'll make for an interesting race.

Forecast for my backyard - Sunny, with high probability of Beer, BBQ ribs, spicy chicken wings, and potato chips  ;D

Today's project is to finish installing the wifi range extender to the outhouse so I can cast foxtel to the TV, and the beer fridge needs to be put in, and I need to find my hammock.

This is the last year with Supercheap as naming rights sponsor, It'll be Repco from 2021- https://au.motorsport.com/v8supercars/news/repco-supercheap-bathurst-1000-sponsor/4859131/
Camaro's to join the field from 2022, with some design rules to be changed for the Gen3 cars in 2022.
Quote
Gen3 will require that all race cars have the same dimensions as the road cars they are based on for all key body components, such as doors, roof, windows and bonnet.
Such components must be interchangeable with that on the respective road car, marking a return to the category’s heritage.

As well as a reduction in aero, and less access to data..... an attempt to put it more back on the skill of the driver.

Walkinshaw would be happy with that.  Was all set to bring on the Camero, but no.   Stopped their remanufacture of the Camero and started work on the Chev Corvette

I'll be there around 7ish... 8am at the worst.

This Bathurst will be the first in close to 40 years,   I won't be taking the day off to watch .. I'll probably catch up with the edited  highlights later ..
For me after last years effort, its gotten to the point of pretty much unwatchable ..

I'll watch the first 5 and the last 10 laps.

I can work the rest out for myself from there.

Once, in a time long ago, I would've watched the whole thing.

Nah, plenty to do in between. (I have a real car with chrome bumpers to play with)

One year, early 90's, we lined the inside of tip truck tipper with black plastic and race tape and filled it with water.
TV was set up on the cab roof with cardboard glare shields around it.
Everyone was nice and pissed and no one got out for a whiz.

End of the day, we cut the plastic and whacked the tipper up.
Small inland tidal wave went down the street.....  :D

Same, watch the shoot out, start of the race until it settles down than tune back in for the end.

I badly need a day off, so I've decided to watch the whole thing.

My back and knee is killing me....
