@Nice One. Why you would cop a disagree is beyond me. Jealousy? The only unfortunate aspect it form portion of the championship. This event if put together properly will be something for others to look at. That is why our series is growing whilst others are diminishing in size.

Well done V8! A venerable who's who of former and current top class drivers. Other so called 'World Class' racing series should stand up and take note of this event, and learn a few things...
