I don't get the no TV thing.

Bathurst costs millions to cover. If the return from advertising isn't there and/or the series organisers won't tip in, there is no incentive for the networks to participate.

Great photos, well done.

That's an incredibly dumb colour scheme on the 458. I thought race cars were meant to stand out, not blend in  :doh:

Damage looks expensive, glad I'm not paying.

correct, but the infrastructure is in place, TV cameras, commentators who understand cars and not having Neil Compton interviewing himself is a bonus.......foxtel need content all they had to do was transmit the event, if Boof heads pay to watch mundine, how many would pay say 20.00 to watch 12 hours of racing.

It's all about money. Just because we're all in raptures about the race, doesn't mean a large enough section of the population would watch it. Less viewers, less advertising.

OTOH...SOMEONE paid to have the coverage.
