I need to be update this opinion.

I didn't make it to the Bend, too cold when you already have a headcold, but after watching Rd 3 of this series I am officially hooked. Never expected to be either - have never been a fan of the 'smaller' cars, Always prefered the V8s / muscle cars, etc, but the TCR series is definitely entertaining. Looking forward to the next round and will likely head to the Bend for the last one.

So the SBS telecast was terrible on Sunday in particular.
A number of "outs" and bad audio synching for intros and interviews.
The pitlane reporter seems a bit out of her depth too. I recognise her from the last 12hour or 6 hour (?) and recall a few mixups with her interviewing.

The series deserves a better quality of broadcasting already I think....the racing is good, some known names turning up to race, just need to show everyone now without it being clunky.

Hey Mayhem, It has it's good and bad points. Yes you are a fair way back from the circuit. I assume this is all to do with building a new track to FIA regs. there is catch fence all the way from turn 17 to down the front straight.

I'll work my way around the track. the main straight, On Non V8 days you can get to elevated areas above the pits at either end that provide excellent views.

The Front straight grand stand is behind a large catch fence.

The car parking mounds behind turn 1/2 provide a good view of the main straight all the way to turn 5.

The car park mounds from turn 3 to 6 aren't to bad but the way the track elevation works it depends where you are how much track you can see. You are quite close to the track here

The hairpin at turn 6 is not visible, the track drops down and is behind a big dirt mound. so that is disappointing.

You can see the cars from turn 6 up over the rise till they drop away from sight at turn 8. You are fairly close here.

If you walk out the back as far as you can. You can see the cars come over turn 8 through to turn 10, but you are a long way from the circuit here.

The next section you can get to is the 'Bull Pen' at turn 14/15/16. I thought this section would be awesome for viewing, but it is probably the worst. Even though you are close, The cars disappear from view a lot and the entire area is surrounded by catch fence.

You can get close to the circuit along the straight between 16 and 17 Or in the grandstand. The view is unobstructed and their is a 'mini skyline' as the cars come over turn 16 and you can see from 16 all they way to the main straight.

Pretty much the same for the grandstand at 17/18 except you are looking through some catch fence. But you are high and can see over it.

Turn 18 you can't see much due to circuit camber. a big mound or grand stand here would be good as it is currently flat hindering the view.

Thanks mate, it actually sounds better than I gave it credit for. Was wondering if it was ever worth a visit photography wise.

Iím very much enjoying the series as you fight for position out on track. Having a pitstop in short Supercars races has really turned me off the series as when I first got into Supercars in the late 90s they were good short sprints with no pitstop. So TCR reminds me of that time.

Windscreen. The front bit, usually. Rear window is not generally considered a windscreen? From a safety point of view, polycarbonate windows are very difficult to get into in a hurry which is why generally windows other than the front are generally kept as glass. Conversely, there are definite advantages to having a plastic front window which gives better impact resistance.
