    austrailian V8 supercars.....


    ...what NASCAR should be. if they ran a NASCAR series that was all road courses i would watch it....religiously.

    i was watching it on Speed today. it was an awesome track in new south wales. great M/C track if there werent walls everywhere. LOTS of elevation change. the track map doesnt do it justice. the "Esses" in the back are all downhill

    Bwaaaaaa haaaaa!!! When I first read the thread title, I SOOOO expected like a picture tribute to Mad Max or some shit!

    That being said, I'm with you. I'm almost scared to say it here, but when NAPcar runs the roadcoarse races I try to catch at least a good part of 'em. Other than that though, I find oval racing of *just about* any sort to be more of a joke...

    Those Aussie V-8 cars are cool, and the drivers are halfway insane. By the end of a race, they'll usually have worn out the grass on the inside of most turns because they believe in using all of the track.....and then some.

    Holden Commodore, FTW!

    I like the brake pad changes during the pits.....pretty wild to see 4 tires and a set of pads go in all in under a minute.

    I agree with you on the Nascar road course races. I have been to several Watkins Glen races in NY and they are so much more fun to watch and attend than Loudon or any other oval track for that matter.

    NASCAR roadcourse races are the only ones i watch. its weird that the only 2 cars are the Holdens and the Ford fusions.

    Yep.

    IMO, the OEM Holdens just look better than the GTO's/ G8's we get here....and besides, the G8 doesn't do here what the V8 SC's do in Australia, which adds to the cool-factor of both the Commodores and the Falcons.

    i definitely agree about the looks. pontiac has a knack for making things look horribly gawdy and cheesy.
