[QUOTE=old fart;3858825]I suppose it depends upon what the person enjoys.
I appreciate the preparation/presentation of the vehicles, close racing and the ability to lap at a consistent rate rather than crash and bash that some regard as the highlight of a meeting.
In fact my all time favourite is endurance racing as the challenges, strategies and ability of teams to respond in a positive manner to adversity is most enjoyable.

Unfortunately the historic fraternity have been their own worst enemy over the last few years and we are being deprived of seeing and experiencing the fantastic aura of days gone by.
It is hoped that the SMSP Tasman event in December will revisit that glorious era where the spirit of true motor sport began.[/QUOTE
The December meeting you are referring to could be accused of false advertising using the Tasman moniker.A large part of the meeting is Super Sprint and Regularity events while races for PRB Clubman cars also feature.Add in the tiny Group N fields that HSRCA meetings have had for the last 5 years and it is a waste of time for even an enthusiast to attend.The one strong field is likely to be Group S but you only have to wait until February to see a entry twice as good at the 12 Hour.

Could well be - my poor little brain is struggling with it this morning, particularly not knowing where it came from. All good.

Indeed, confirmed. Internet provider Superloop has inked a three-year deal with Adelaide 500 organisers to secure naming rights to the event. I still thought of it and referred to it as the Clipsal this year, after they had left and it was a no (brand) name event. Old habits.....

If you want a celebration of that glorious era, you have missed it. The event that has become known as the "Amaroo Historics"at Wakefield in September is just that meeting. Old cars, racing the way it used to be, and no BS.

And nothing new!

Channel Ten has the rights to the Flemington spring carnival from 2019. The final day, Stakes Day, clashes with the Saturday running of the Supercars at Sandown. Who'll get bumped to Boss?

Possibility of IndyCar returning to the GC in March 2020 probably means that a Supercars race at that meeting would fit in neatly with a Supercars summer series.

Preferably the Supercars races would change to the Superstreet format used at Adelaide and Townsville.

They moved the Gold Coast away from March because as a draw card for interstate visitors it was wiped out by Albert Park.Same would happen again only even worse as Indycar has a much lower profile now and the spec cars they use are visual shockers.Also March is Adelaide and Albert Park for Supercars which are both bigger deals for them than Gold Coast could ever hope to be.
