[iV8SC12R21] SuperCheap Auto Bathurst 1000 - 4-7 October (WITH POLL!!)

Ladies and gentlemen...

....there are some treasures in this world that cannot be bought, taken or sold.

They must be earned!

One of these such treasures is the 2012 SuperCheap Auto Bathurst 1000, held on the famous Mount Panorama racing circuit, right here in Australia.

There are 29 potential threats, 58 pilots on a mission to earn this treasure.

These are well funded, well trained, highly motivated individuals, brought together from all walks to life for this common goal, this uncommon adventure.

Some have earned it before, some many times, some yet to taste that success, some who never will.

This is a mission that demands military precision.

There is no room for error. 99% is simply not good enough any more.

Such is the 2012 SuperCheap Bathurst 1000 - The Power to Polarise.

The place where reputations are made. Or lost.

The place where you see genuine action sequences without any special effects. Where you get to feel emotion that isnt manufactured.

You have come to the right place.

Boogidy Boogidy Boogidy... lets get on with the show.

The world is watching!

Supprised the see sbr leading the poll so far.I'd rate the two 888, Percat/Tander and even the FPR cars over them.

Anyway, we're counting the sleeps till we leave- load the trailer & do the
bearings this weekend.

just pointing out (its the last one on the list) that CLowndes is leading at this stage with 9, but SBR is second ahead of Jamie and GT and FPR

I guess one day SBR will go OK at Bathurst but apart from 1998 they have never had a car that could go the distance at pace. Next year could well be a change, but I seriously doubt SBR will have a car this year that won't eat its front tyres, and I'm betting FPR will have the pace to run at the front but somehow manage to cock it up.

My heart is saying DJR, but my mouse hand keeps hovering over 888.

SBR cars have always shown speed over a lap but have never had speed through a stint to win the big race.

This was the year Rusty won the championship too, clearly that BA had the speed everywhere but was too hard on its front tyres.

Ambose was leading when he was asked to add a balaclava

he was in 3rd when him and murphy came together, just a few meters behind the leaders.

they had the car that could go the distance at pace

also from 2006-2008 they ended up on the podium

Podium at Bathurst means you hung in there but didn't have pace to pass at the end when it matters. BJR have had more podiums than just about anybody else, who here thinks Brighty or Fabs might win?

Its not impossible, but I'm not sure how likely it is.

HRT, they seem to only care about Bathurst..

Though outside my team, i hope BJR do well or win. Have come close and would be great to see them win

Yeah, don't know.

I'd say the top 5 will feature T8, HRT, BJR, FPR or GRM. In no particular order, and I'd say a second T8 car will take the place of one of the others.

Hope that makes sence, because honestly, it could be anyone's day.

#23 all the way

Reality is, it's between 888 (insert large gap here), FPR & HRT with SBR on the fringe.
Everyone else is making up minor places and numbers.

Is Bathurst being telecast in full HD on 7mate this year. After watch the Sandown telecast today, didn't see anything mentioned about this. Although wasn't paying that much attention.

My tip for victory, Lowndes and Luff for T8.
