I tried to watch today's Race 4. My wife came in and said "it's raining - maybe there will be some prangs" but there weren't enough of them to keep me interested.  So I turned it off. As the saying goes "That's motor racing". It's the world's dullest TV sport.

Do you mean the V8 race today? or the scheduled 4th race of the day?

The V8 racing is really good I think, and todays was epic... before half distance was covered there'd been SO MANY things to raise your pulse.

It's a shame the cars are ugly and pre-historic though.

The dirvers are mostly excellent, and the teams run a good enough show, mostly.

I wish we could get Aus GT cars/drivers/teams up to V8 series levels of professionalism... we could blow their 4 doors off.

The V8 race. Boring as batshit - to someone not particularly interested. It's a dreary procession. GP is the same. All IMO of course. :)

I really fail to see your point for TODAYS race... it was great!

But yes, sometimes it can be if you don't know the guys involved or have an "interest" in it.

But TODAY... it was CRAZY!

I had a few long blinks too, and I WAS really into it...

I DID enjoy it, but's just something that happens... it's that 3.30 syndrome I think.... A cadbury creme egg helps... how do you eat yours !

V8 races ARE boring, on TV at least, Bathurst is an all day borefest.
GP is a bit better but it's better to watch the highlights as all the real action can be packed into a few minutes.

as much a sI don't like what V8 supercars "is"... I'll continue to defend todays race.

The rain and shine made it very eciting, there were passes galore, crashes and spins, strategy moves, hi's and low's all round.

It was great.

Lowndes even spun himself around in the pit exit FFs!

edit,, oooh, that glass of red has messt up mi spiiling
