nafe! should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The event itself imho is perfect. Qualifying should not be cheapened by a tv style shootout and there is just enough practice time for international teams and drivers to learn the track.

However ery year i wish that other manufacturers had as much apparel as nissan did. It was nice to see a ferrari store...which was surprisingly affordable.

I feel that the track could really do with more super screens, especially across the top of the mountain.

Other than those minor gripes the event is perfect!

Got my hopes up when I saw that and asked the kind lass behind the counter surrounded by F1 merch if she had any GT or Clienti Corse stuff. 'We have only have Ferrari' was the answer forthcoming....

'Shrugs'. I give up.

Great to see Bentley and McLaren selling gear, apparently Bentley sold out of shirts on Saturday.

The race itself was great, and that's what we're all there for!
Van Gisbergen is a wasted talent, racing over here. I hope he keeps up a few more of his overseas GT racing commitments this year. The guy is poetry in motion behind the wheel. I dunno whether he was just playing up to the crowd in the last hour of the race, or what, but you get the idea, he could have just put the hammer down at any time to tear off into the distance, as he had done all weekend.
The B12hr merch was again rubbish and massively overpriced.
$75.00 & $55.00 for cheaply made, crap T shirts was ridiculous. They're kidding aren't they? To answer my own question, I suppose they weren't, because there were heaps still on the racks when we walked out, on Sunday afternoon, after the race had finished. I wasn't going to buy one even if they were cheaper. Whoever designs this rubbish needs to have a re-look at the quality, design, fabric and presentation, and maybe check out some of the better, overseas team and race merchandise (not the American stuff), to get an idea.

Agreed on the merch, it looked pretty rank to me and horribly overpriced. For a race that features some of the more exotic brands of cars on this earth, I thought their clothing range hardly embraced that fact.

Is the whole Goodwood type week an actual goer for next year?

With some Huracans on the way to Australia you'd have to think Bathurst would suit them going by their performance on certain circuits

Being basically an Audi R8 LMS with a lot of high end speed they should kill it all Bathurst.

Obviously there are obstacles however I wouldn't mind seeing a twilight or night session on Friday evening (try to mimic Sunday morning start). As a driver/team owner Scudd is this something of interest to you blokes? Or to much risk early in the weekend?
while it would be great for spectators, since the race is only run 20/30 mins in the dark, it's not something that's needed.

not sure how the owners of the properties would feel being locked in/out for longer than what happens already?

they might need to run to BOP first, then see how they go.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
reading there might have been a few BOP related issues With the Huracans over the weekend

That is to do with IMSA and their own parity rules, nothing to do with the SRO BoP that the Bathurst 12hr uses

No longer an issue Scudd. All property owners now have alternate routes to get in and out. Been that way for about 5 years now.

Back in the early days of the 12 hour we had evening sessions. It did help the teams set their lights but it made the day VERY long for teams. It was a good spectacle.

If it were to be reintroduced you would probably only need one session on Friday night to 'bed in' your starting driver.
