Taz this is going to be a really good event
with Drivers of High Calibre and is expected
to achieve a crowd in excess of 200,000.

Combine that with the global T.V. coverage
and it is more popular than F1.

This will not do any of the internationals any
harm so I don't understand your comment.

Love V8's should be fun. I don't think Taz is putting a downer on the series, just that Di Grassi doesn't have a race seat for 2011.

However Commodore you're having a laugh with 200k. That's over double what they cram into Silverstone. Where do you propose they put all these people on the street circuit? Don't fall for the PR B/S

Spot on, it was a comment about the team, nothing to do with the series which I quite honestly no nothing about.

Virgin racing seems to be a graveyard for F1 drivers.

Sure is Taz. Pure V8 Grunt. Alan Gow wants us to come to Silverstone. Might happen now with Derek Warwick seeing he was the founder of 888 who play a big part in the series with Vodaphone.

I think Richard said it was on Motor T.V
whatever that is.

It you go to the top of the page amd click cars
thence slide along to V8s you will get a small snippet of a idea.

We have Andrew Jordon competing in a reality show at the moment for a drive at Bathurst 1000.

Villanaueve competed in the G.C.600 last year. His pride got hurt and decided not to come this year.

commodore. motors tv is one of the sky channels. yes they show v8s but about 10 (?) days after each event. queensland was on last wednesday.(was that 3 days late or 10?)
but as for di grassi. let him have a chance, he may be a better driver of v8s than he is in f1.

Richard Ipswich QLD was on 19/21st August.

De Grassi is with a competant team. The Team
Manager is Bruce Jenkins which should ring a bell.

For Bathurst Richard Lyons will be the Co- Driver for the team.

The rule book says the Same international can not do both Bathurst and Gold Coast.

Motors T.V Website will have the times and dates for the Enduros. They should be close to live with replays.

As with F1 we are working with our T.V arrangements
which at the moment are totally unsatisfactory.
