    I love the racing too, but I also love the "preparation" & "adjustments" that are made to these immensely "tune able" cars from the state in which they arrive at the circuit, to the state in which they land on the starting grid, which is why I like Foxtel, because a lot of this is covered in their telecast. Practice, Quali, & TT Shootout can also be intriguing IMHO.

    While I haven't watched a single minute this year (because of the cash grab to Foxtel) I will tune in this weekend to watch what is on free to air. I'm sure I'll end up watching almost every minute of it as it is the best race of the year regardless. No idea who's who in the zoo, but I'm sure I'll find someone to barrack for.

    With the BS going on with Holden, should I go for the Blue oval this year...? That's a tough choice...

    They run the Nissan Altimas.
    Rick Kelly / Dale Wood and Andre Heimgartner / Bryce Fullwood.

    I think in their current form, to win they would need Steve Bradbury driving for them.

    I think they've lost a lot of viewers and team marketing $ because of this. Never the less, hopefully its a good Bathurst.

    They've have a few Wins here and there though.

    Weather looks interesting too. Quite damp on Friday and some rain on Saturday. Could make it interesting dialing the cars in properly. Bathurst 2019
