I think 52% might be who has had 1 vax shot not both... we shall see

What happens if Bathurst doesnt take place this year?

It would be interesting to know if the tv contract is something along the lines of 12 events- 1 of which must be the Bathurst 1000.
If NSW is still black listed by the rest of Australia and they have to run The Bend 1000 or something that might not be enough to qualify for the tv money.

It remains to be seen if travel will be allowed between NSW & VIC for the October/November schedule to happen so stand by because the fat lady is still singing and optimism is always good.

Surely it must. The insistence of a Bathurst race in the original V8Supercars TV contract is what started the whole Bathurst mess, and Bathurst certainly hasn’t lost popularity in the proceeding 24 years

One assumes many a team sponsorship is dependant on a Bathurst 1000 too

I doubt the casual observers will pay any attention to a Bend 1000, and they make up a slice of the annual Bathurst audience

Victoria in lockdown again, might be Bathurst 1000 without a crowd if we are lucky!

It won't happen unless the teams can travel to NSW after PI, spectators might be able to attend from more remote areas (at the moment) but who knows. I put it in the wishful thinking category. The other problem is all the support personnel for TV and the race having to move from locked down areas to Bathurst, that could even be a bigger challenge.

I can't believe all the conditions there are.

3 rounds in NSW including the final round. This, that, and the other?

It shouldn't be that hard. What for?

No option’: Borders ’shut’ for Christmas
As NSW records the state’s worst day amid the Covid-19 pandemic, experts have given a very grim forecast for the festive season.
Burnet Institute CEO Brendan Crabb told ABC News Breakfast it is likely NSW residents will be stuck in their state until at least Christmas.
He said it was “pretty likely” NSW would be shut off from other states and territories for months to come as a result of the state’s outbreak.
“If the rest of Australia stays with the national policy of zero Covid, there is no option but to shut themselves off as best they can,” he said.
“There is just every likelihood that this is going to continue until the best part of Christmas in this sort of on-off lockdown or lockdown for different regions at different levels.”

so if nsw borders are shut til xmas or beyond where doest that leaves the major events planned for bathurst in november?

Pretty grim reading...
As for Bathurst one would have to start thinking its all up 'that' creek without a paddle.

I think we are way up that particular creek, without a paddle, no outboard motor, no mobile phone, no safety vest, no sunscreen or life jacket.

Covid19, the Chinese Curse that just keeps on wreaking havoc on the world.

It is possible we have seen the last Supercar race for the 2021 title.

Congratulations SVG!

I am responsible for all this, every time we make plans to see our daughter and our grand children this always happens.
