BobJones should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I wouldn't be surprised to see different layouts and even a night race maybe?

4 rounds at the same venue is proper club racing.

It just amazing to come across all the factors that have to be accounted for to get a complete season.

Has to have x amount of rounds, here, there, and everywhere. Has to finish off in NSW and so forth.

It's professional amateurism.

Yet, people are going to rip into 2litre cars and TCR?

Yeah, good one.

What’s ambitious about it? It’s the easy answer, do a bunch of races in one spot for the sake of satisfying at TV deal.

Never mind the TV viewers will be sick of watching the same cars go around the same tracks for four weeks straight, SMP struggles to get a crowd anyway for one race a year let alone four back-to-back coming out of Covid restrictions.

Bathurst will still be big, but it takes the sting out of the build up if you’re running five times in six weeks and four of them are around the same place with likely the same winners.

Cheapens the sport too.

No one thinks this is ideal but it was the only alternative they were left with.If they don’t complete 5 more events including the Bathurst 1000 they lose up to $30million in TV money.That doesn’t sound like a good idea.
I’m guessing the first and last weekends will be run on the normal circuit with the middle weekends taking a turn on the short and extended circuit.Both of those are lousy for different reasons but probably better than all 4 on the same layout.Also guessing there will be variety in race lengths with 100,200 and 300 kilometre races all likely.Every Saturday will probably have a night race.
Crowds are likely to be capped anyway so spectator numbers aren’t an issue.Agree with some of what you are saying but choosing not to take the tv money and giving up all that tv exposure would be stupid.
By the way there should be 2 of these Creek meetings on 7.Originally the Creek meeting was scheduled to be and a second one will have to be given to them as a replacement for Surfers.
