2008 Australian Sprintcar Title

Parramatta City Raceway is holding the 46th (??) Australian Sprintcar Title this weekend...Dad and I were only going to go for 1 night instead of 3, so we decided to go the final night, which we assumed was the Saturday night (despite Thursday and Friday being washed out). Much to our surprise, Saturday was heat races only!

So, we decided to go again tonight (Sunday) only to have it pour down again, and the night's racing was cancelled! Hurumph!

Rescheduled for the 9th of Feb, can't wait. If Saturday night is anything to go by, I think Garry Brazier will take home the title, despite the fact that I can't stand him, he is a very impressive driver. Sartori was very fast, and 2nd on points at this stage, and Brooke was on a charge too. If I could choose the result, I'd go Robbie Farr, Max Dumesny then Sammy Walsh. Having said that, it'll be Brazier, Tatnell, Madsen 1,2,3.

Took the P&S on Saturday night and got a few good snaps, but I think the 400D will have to come with me next weekend and we'll go for a wander through the pits :) Most of my pics from the night are of Max & Robbie, and some impressive shots of the catch-fence :P
