Not sure what Brighty was trying to do there.

Brown could come back up and get a podium yet! O'Keeffe looks safe in front.

Bright was just reminding people why no-one wants him in their team anymore.

Can't have a younger, faster driver in front of him, can he...

Cracking race, great drive from Brown.

Until they get their own event at Bathurst one day, I'd like to see them join the 12 Hour card and run on the Friday/Saturday.

We're all here, we're the Bathurst boys; and you can't hear Richo above the noise...

A reminder guys if you want to discuss what's happening you'll need to either get a spoiler tag added to this thread or do a spoiler thread for each meeting.

Been horrible all weekend. If there is a queue of 10 cars with a battle at the front and a battle at the back they'll focus on the car alone in the middle.

Yesterday's race start had them focusing on the Renault mid pack cruising by itself...

Thats the most exciting racing ive watched trackside in years. Pure close hard racing.

Even watching the guys charge from the back of the grid added to overall spectacle of the racing. You dont see that often in bigger series around the world nowadays. Reminds me of late 90s early 00ss v8 racing

well that was an interesting weekend at the Island!

crowd wise they did well! (especially with the very under-average schedule and pathetic 60 car TOTAL grid for the weekend)... personal assessment can only lead me to think it was for the TCR guys... the other 3 have been around for some time and the public has not turned out to see them...

on track... oh lordy!! the TCRs put on a show that made you forget they had a low number on the grid... highly recommend you seeing them if they are in your neighborhood... Porsche put on a show as always with a good grid... f4s had a few battles but was mostly what you expect from them... GT was disappointing having 3 hours with such a small number of cars...

monster crash at the start of the final TCR crash will have pics coming as my magnet was working well.

Considering the bland schedule (Porsche and GT), it was pretty good to be there.

F4 don't like from the pov of numbers and how its inclusion has divided that level of racing. Otherwise I think they're alright.

13 GTs for a 3 hour? What to the spectators do to deserve that punishment???

I think for next year they'll have a long think about what the support classes will be.

As far as the bottom line in concerned, it's miles off equalling supercars. But you can't ignore the attendance it did generate.

There have been heaps of SN meets that have been just as quiet as a track day. If SN had the Saturday attendance last weekend for the last 14 years on Sundays, they'd have been stoked.

agreed re the crowd JR... to have the front straight fence lined with cars was a great result for the first TCR round and if they can continue that momentum it will be a good thing...

but they really do need to get a half decent program happening again or folk will not bother coming for just one category.
