    So apparently theres a huge shitfight going down regarding the race in newcastle.... have a read of the FB page hahahha

    https://www.facebook.com/Newcastle-E...MELINE&fref=nf

    Apparently, the event is gonna cause mental health issues for the kids that live in the area - has to be true because they got a Dr to say so..
    There will be fire risks to the buildings next to the track because if a fire breaks out in one of those buildings Firies wont be able to get to them because of all the concrete barriers and fencing
    And that when the race is on, it will block access to parks and beaches for the residents, linking it to being a fortified earthquake zone...

    Wow.... theres too much to unpack on their FB page... this is gonna take a while...

    news article on kids getting mental health issues: http://www.theherald.com.au/story/44...health/?cs=305

    Protest held last week friday: http://www.theherald.com.au/story/44...cs=305#slide=2

    And the best yet... apparently the destruction has already started because someone - most likely a Supercars fan has vandalised a neighbourhood while the protest was on by cutting their NBN cable and now the suburb is without access to the internet:
    http://www.theherald.com.au/story/44...-nasty/?cs=305

    Looking at the pic of the cut cable and the description of the person who done it, I would say it was just a telstra tech that got called to another job halfway through..... it looks spot on for the typical workmanship from them....

    Most exciting thing there since Silverchair did a thing, and they're having a cry.

    For fuck sake. The tourism industry will peak if/when this occurs. Local businesses should be over the moon. Why is anything Motorsport related considered evil and destructive? Cunts need to get a life, it's a bit of noise for just three fucking days each year. I would've thought the benefits would far outweigh the downsides.

    If the race track plan does end up getting abandoned, I think one good thing that may develop from the situation is the increased push for more permanent off street tracks in nsw.

    I normally hate the idea of street races, but I'm going to go, in protest of the nimbys.

    Fuck them, and their soy latte unicycles.

    Fyi the Tuesday test at EC is open to ARDC members only. They're being pretty anal about it this year no pit access, no hitting up drivers for autographs etc. Soemhting must have happened last year during the test day the general public could attend?

    I suspect the media commitments around a public test soak up too much actual testing time.

    "Whincup called off the summer wedding to his glamorous dancer fiancee which was scheduled to be held at the conclusion of the V8 racing season in early December."

    I love how it's front page news today, but this shit actually went down back in December. Pretty good effort to keep it that quiet for that long.

    V8 Supercar discussion thread

    Taz Douglas confirmed for second seat for LDM but for Clipsal only so far. Looking forward to the weekend to see the beginning of the championship. Plenty of unanswered questions like the pace of McLaughlin in the Penske colours, Tander at GRM and Simona in the Kelly Krate

    Just had Karl Reindler here at the dealership giving training on the New Nissan Pathfinder - will be in the Enduros with Holdsworth - said the Nissan should do very well on the point and shoot circuit like Adelaide but 888 have the form.

    What is Karl Reindler giving training for?

    Always intriguing to see how V8 drivers fulltime/part time pay the bills if they're not up the sharp end and on big coin because not everyone is. I know some do driver training. Blanchard has the family business as does Dale Wood.

    A lot seem to do driver training, customer drive programs for the likes of AMG, Porsche etc and do drive days with Radicals. Also stunt driving for TV commercials and of course driver coaching in categories like GT.

    Reidler works for Nissan doing product training he brought the new Pathfinder in before launch for training for about 2 hours - then up to Shepparton today...he also works with that Steve Pizatti from Top Gear for Audi

    He said he had a paid drive for Bathurst 12 hour with the Ginetta but someone else paid more

    Ripper of a race. Seems surreal seeing a Civic leading the field against a bunch of rear and AWD's.
