Bathurst NSW

The Mount Panorama Circuit, Bathurst, New South Wales may be familiar to you as the venue of the Bathurst 1000. I first saw this track in the late eighties when the Beeb covered this endurance touring car race on Grandstand.

Much like the Chevy/Ford rivalry in the States Bathurst has long been the place where Aussies saw their Ford/Holden loyalties played out, and these V8 muscle cars must be a real handful round Bathurst - I remember it as being bigger, but this onboard Elise lap shows just how snug the place is.

It also demonstrates just how close single-make racing is. Great stuff.

I can't find a listing for the Sportscar show this year, but the Kit Car show is on at Stonleigh

Kit Car 2007 - 6-7th May

I've been a couple of times and there's usually a fair amount of Autojumble, upholstery and carpet folk there... might be worth a look

Cheers, although I'll be in Spain for a big fat gay wedding (not ours before you ask)
