Tony Cockhead, oh Cochrane has come up with another classic Tonyism...

It seems as though he's decided on next years calendar, without consulting anyone...

1stly he wants to go back to the October long weekend, which is fair enough i guess. The problem is that is the same weekend of the NRL/AFL grand finals, thus attendances would be down.

2ndly, in his infinte wisdom he has decided to set a date THE SAME DAY AS THE GOLD COAST INDY!!! But wait for it, it gets better...He then sent a request to Bobby Rahal for Cart to move their date!!!

from AA:
"Bobby's initial reaction is why don't you guys just move, (your date) which is fair enough, if i was in Bobby's position i would ask the same thing. It is a little hard for American's to get their head around the fact that we are a bigger championship in this country."


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-Ah, doesn't the Gold Coast Indy get over 200,000 people, making it bigger than any SCS event, by a good 150,000??
-Ah doesn't channel 10 broadcast the event, if given a choice, Indy would always get priority.
-Ah, who's going to race with you Tony? People like to watch support classes you know, and most of the good ones are scared of the Gold Coast concrete...
-Ah, this isn't super touring that you are trying to **** off Tony, Cart is a million times what V8s are or will ever be.

I think it is time Cochrane sat up and smelt the coffee. If only Cams could step in and do something, but we now all know that Cochrane is the boss of motorsport in the Southern Hemisphere now....I just hope Cams sue the pants off em..

yeah tony does struggle with some of his ideas, sure scs seems to be getting bigger and bigger, but setting dates for races cant be that difficult here in oz (vs f1, cart, they dont worry about bike gp or wsbk)...theres 52 weekends a year tony, work it out.....winton rocks and is in my opinion the best scs race (great weekend in the bush) in victoria, i wont be a happy chappy if this race is lost to an overseas venture.

It's a shame I can't be at home just for this. Crash Test, would you kindly laugh at Cochrane twice as much and give him a DC wave, just for me?

Gladly

If Winton loses its round there would be something wrong....look at how much they have upgraded the place, simply to keep their SCS round...

Nearly 4 years ago this classic thread was started and in 4 years NOTHING has changed with TC or Avesco.

Tony C got rejected. He was having a **** and his hand went to sleep.

Is it just me or does TC seem to think that he speaks for and understands what the average Aussie and the World Wide audience want...

Maybe him and the several shiney bums at Avesco and Tega need to get off them( bums that is ) and mingle amonst the "average Joes" and get the correct information.

Who ever feeds TC his info does so from an ivory tower far far away from any where I know.

If you send suggestions to Avesco you get no reply or some lame excuse as to why that wont work or told that its not what fans want. Send them some critiscism or a highly opinionated letter as to what you think of what they are doing and you get a reply almost immediately and its not usually a nice one.

AVESCO want money and lots of it they want it from teams sponsors and anyone else - they forget that we the average joe are paying good $$$$$ to see their show and buy the merchandise and that some of us have lived and breathed this sport for many many years- possibly longer than Tony has been at SEL / AVESCO and some of us and I am pleased to say all of us here at Ten Tenths for example know what we like, we dont like, and what we want from our racing obsession for our money. Weve all been here long enough and enough about the sport to know what we are on about. I for one have been a fan of Aussie Motorsport and especially Touring Cars etc since I was 5 in 1977. Thats a lot of years and Im only a youngster some others here could give a lot more imput. TONY LISTEN TO THE FANS.

Best news I've read about Tony in years!!! I've been waiting for bathurst to go back to the "REAL" weekend since the 2L race stopped.. Plus it is only up against NRL.. not AFL!! Bring it on!!

Gonya Toolman... surely you could have come up with something more recent!...

I probably wouldn't post something to this extent these days as it seems that Tony C has buttoned off a bit on the volume control, and really doesn't have to tell anyone to stick it anymore. That said, I think the China experience is going to be a bit of an acid test...
