None of them seem to interest me anymore, no offence most, not all, seems to just be rubbish, even a few years ago it was better but now meh.

 

the last soundwave i went to was sydney 2013, the one where that idiot let off flares in the crowd

 

 

So does anyone actually follow the V8 Supercars? Even if they're not real Holdens, Fords now Mercs, Volvos and Nissans it's still a lot of fun getting involved in the rivalry.

Holden fans only please. Ford fans get an automatic ban.

 

i'm not a big watcher of car racing, but have always preferred commodores over falcons.
 
i would also love to do this http://www.adrenalin...CFZcjvQod6J0A_w

I used to but Sky moved the coverage to optional satellite sports channels. Which I do not have. I used to be a big fan of Commodores but have since moved into the Volvo camp.

Used to be a big Falcon fan but I more support Lowndes and Van Gisbergen as individual racers now as opposed to the actual manufacturers or even teams.

Nothing will ever beat the Betta Electrical days of Lowndes and Whincup, a controversial opinion but I believe the greatest V8 Supercar team of all time. When they moved on to Vodafone and the FG Falcons it was still cool but didn't have the shock effect that Betta Electrical had.

I used to love Ambrose too, I really support him I the NASCAR now, have actually become a really big fan of NASCAR and probably follow it more than V8 Supercars haha.



On another note Labour have said that if they when the state election down here in Victoria they will take steps towards legalising the usage of medical marijuana.
Opinions?

..i just support whichever car i think looks cooler =)

 

on the legalisation thing, it always seems to be talked about, but nothing comes of it. it would be good if it could be looked at properly

God forbid Australia does something more progressive first than New Zealand does.

I agree, Craig Lowndes was an incredible racer in his hey day.

I recall many races where he was so far ahead that the only obstacle victory would be mechanical failure, in fact i remember a Bathurst his car slowed to a crawl but because he was something like 10 -15 laps in front, it was ridiculous.

Pretty sure they set the Bathurst record in 2003 and it hasn't been beaten since with better cars and such, amazing.

I have an intense dislike for Abbot as much as the next person, but this latest thing is a bit over the top.

This is pure bullsh*t. They're putting fear into people for no reason at all. I'm not going to get started on this.

How so? They obviously have some reason to raise the threat level - not just to scare people... 

 

Rightly so too, with the rapidly deteriorating situation overseas. The threat levels are in place to protect Australia, not to scare people. 

 

Cheers!

The problem is that, in the same breath as announcing the increase in threat level, they've said they have no knowledge of specific threats. And the potential threats we're aware of were already responded to prior to this.

Sandown 500...

Haven't watched a race in maybe 5 years & haven't paid attention to the (new?) teams since Nissan, Volvo & Mercedes entered, so.. I hope a Mercedes wins :p

The media are reporting these threats stating that they are 'immediate' and 'soon' but how do they know these threats are that serve? An ex-troop was approached in the CBD by some apparent Muslims, stating that he should head over "to the Middle East," so he could "blow his f*cking head off." This is the one threat, that has been reported to the public, to spark this concern and put our terror alert on high.

I think, personally, that this threat increase will further provoke extremists to take action to these allocations.

Glad to see this topic is still around.

 

Periodically I re-post this video in Australian hangouts to make sure it's still satire:
