Bathurst 1000 about time - booze limits...

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,24307543-2,00.html

About time.

Well all the sooks will come out on this one. Why is it, that the greatest tin top race has to be fuelled by beer.

I am glad that they are doing this, more people will attend with out having to put up with BOGAN'S on the Mount.

Why should a select few drunken bums dictate how a majority of people who want to watch the race?

THe Police don't pour beer down your throat.

The media don't pour beer down your throat

I"ve been to Bathurst for twenty years and I drink 2 cartons a day. BFD.

We say it's the greatest motor race yet a small percentage want to make it a ####up.

If you can't attend a race meeting without drinking yourself in a stupor. then don't go.

I love motorsport, but am sick of D/Heads claiming it is thier right to get P###%% and anoy people who want to watch racing.

Sobering thought, due to a minority, we can't take a beer to footy as well.

I remember taking a esky to the "G"

Well come on losers have a howl.

Are we the only country that has to accept you have to be P##### to watch motor sport?

If you don't like it get of the mount.

i agree the ****wits need to be ****ed off but i think 1 carton per person is a little low, i reckon 2 is reasonable.

If you are drinking more than one carton of anything per person per day.... there might be some more issues than a restriction.

24 beers in a day, of any strength, is f'n redicious! I hope those people are NOT on a kidney donor list!

A carton is the only way fo restriction appart from a 6-pack though, so good on them for doing this.

Whats the limit on Spirits?

senna, while i dont have any issues with this. it does mean that you have a camping spot for say ten people, if you two of you go into town you can only bring back 2 slabs. ie just 5 stubbies each, 5 stubbies is hardly a drunk feral, over a day you may not even notice any effect with this person.

so now you have to send down 4 or 5 blokes to get the slabs, plus you cant buy them at the start of the week and take them up there. it does create a big inconvienience for what i obserbed last year, very little gain.

and PS i am not the one getting smashed on the mountain as i sit in tyhe grand stand, where they had even more draconian laws last year. i havent seen wheer they are enforcing the same laws this year at the bottom of the mountain

some you tube

If the people who just finished their 24th can find a designated driver to run into Bathurst to buy more, surely the rules around the RSA would prevent them from taking delivery of yet another slab each for the return journey?

Anyone in Bathurst with a Dingo? Could make a fortune burying grog for desperados.

I can go all race week without a drink (other than coffee). Still manage to have fun. Let's see the boozers manage that!

It's a worry someone drinking 24 heavies in a day.
But I'm more worried about the person drinking 36 lights beers in a day

Peckstar, fair call. But as you may know, if you have 12 beers on site, you drink 12. If you have 12 slabs on site, you'll drink 12 slabs....

Really, it may be an inconvenience, but rules are rules, and eventually we will all get use to it. IE, 7am run to Woolie's liquor with a car full to get your 5 slabs. Let's just hope that we dont have some idiot's trying to buck the rules, or it'll become a dry mountain!

I think we need to look at this like the new curfew's and drink restrictions in some places - we all had the warnings, and sadly a few moron bogans continued to party hard and ruint it for the rest of us - The few have ruined it for the masses. Perhaps some crowd self regulation is in need?

Here's a thought - buy a property on one of the straights, set up a drive-thru bottle shop. The once a yeat takings would be worth it!

How many "hot" water bottles will be going through the gate?

A few years ago when they banned fireworks, I have never in my life seen such a fantastic display of things blowing up... where there is a will, there is a way, and the boys are always up for a challenge
