Shame there probably won't be rain. The really great races at Bathurst are the ones which involve changing between wet and dry tyres. But even something as simple as a rear tyre puncture can produce some very exciting consequences.

Not an easy way to watch it in the US.  There are other means to do so...  Just make sure you use script blockers/ad blockers/ etc.  viprow.me had a link that worked for now.  Sometimes streams pop up on twitch or youtube.  A lot of the support races were on youtube the past few days

One of these clips does feature a roo probably getting killed, or definitely badly injured, so NSFW...

Happy Bathurst Day!

I could have sworn they put up a livestream on youtube for this the last few years, but I can't seem to find anything - the only ones on there have links to less than reputable live streams.  I'm at work tonight and it's probably not a good idea to go to any of those sites. been searching Twitch as well but perhaps those will pop up when the race starts.

and seeing a race at Mount Panorama is on my bucket list. I don't know a ton about the Supercars but any time I come across one of their races, it's always a blast to watch

I took a 7 day trial for the LeMans 24 and quit because the rest of the channel is nothing for me.  I'm not going to try to do it again, because I respect them and stuff.

No big incidents yet in today's race. Aussies of a certain age will get this reference: "These farking cars just keep going around and around and around, it's been so farking boring!"

Just got back from dinner with family so I am glad I didn't miss much.  Too bad this wasn't earlier in the week with some rain.

59 to go.  Only 1 safety car so they are on record pace.

He's not watching the race, he's looking around for a manager to complain to because some bogan buried a slab of VB right on top of his burrow before the race for retrieval on the day.  (It's not that he's bothered at his home being used for beer storage, but Coors Down Under?)

I absolutely love that fans there bury their alcohol before the race and dig it up when they get there. it's part of the reason I want to get there someday

That safety car certainly created some action.  Now we hope for rain for further challenges
 
2021-12-05 12:59:45 AM  
Love Neil Crompton's commentary. Car in the wall, a pile of f-bombs clearly heard over the radio, Neil super calm "There's clearly some frustration inside that garage".
 
2021-12-05 1:00:11 AM  
After a clean 2/3rds a race, things get a bit more action packed and safety cars breed safety cars
 
2021-12-05 1:36:23 AM  
Crunch time about to begin.  Last pit stops (unless there is another safety car).
 
2021-12-05 1:42:12 AM  
Oh wow, safety car after the pit cycle bunches everyone up.

They are going for it, will Mostert or Van Gisbergen make a mistake pushing.
 
2021-12-05 2:23:01 AM  
Crushing issue for Van Gisbergen costs him the podium

That was a fun race at the end.  Had the wildlife interlude and a nice fight toward the end.

Not one of the more sensational Bathurst events but interesting enough. The personalities in the sport don't seem to be as massive as previous generations. I grew up in the days of Brock and Johnston, and in the decades after that the likes of Marcos Ambrose and Greg Murphy (actually pretty much everybody versus Murph) were really memorable.
