    Mandatory caution to close the field up and keep it "exciting"?

    What a bunch of losers!

    There's only so much sport and motorsport you can follow. Without noticing, Jensen Button won the Japanese Super GT series this weekend .Heikki Kovalainen won it in 2016! :eek:

    I’ve been watching the races from 2015 on YouTube. The racing was close. The franse family are killing their own sport.

    At PI atm. The cars are going to have a demo run. They look good up close. Whereas I didn’t think they were that big a deal when looking at pictures of them.

    Of the 3 demo’s I’ve seen so far. They’re just another car on a long straight. But around corners or e even a short straight, they’re pretty good. 58F4966F-0A8D-4D17-B3DD-B600E28F4325.jpeg

    Here’s another pic. They’re just sitting there with no one in attendance. So if you wanted to ask questions about the category, you couldn’t. 77FF1C89-702C-4B88-BCE1-331C31044F16.jpeg

    A few pics from today's Adelaide Motorsport Festival, including Porsche 962s, some older F1 cars, Colin McRaes old Subaru, The Holy Trinity and the new Brabham BT62 hypercar which sounds absolutely insane.

    The white Dodge Demon is apparently the fastest accelerating production car in the world, well sort of production.

    And for those F1 buffs, Sir Jack's 1959 title winning car is amongst the pics. Had a chat to David Brabham, he reckons the new car does the name justice. From what I saw I'm inclined to agree.
