They're racing at Bathurst this weekend. This bit of video is at the bottom of Conrod Straight, just before The Chase, where the cars start braking from 250+ kph to take the first right.



Roll cages. Gotta love them.

Conrod Flightline more like, holy moleeeeee! Checked the news, he was being airlifted out. Fingers crossed for a complete and spreedy recovery.

You might be thinking of Chaz Mostert's crash yesterday. They airlifted him and five marshals to Orange Base Hospital.



This is still just practice. We haven't had the actual race yet.

Jeeeeebus... You all sure know how to disassemble a car down there, wow.

No was Damien Flack I was speaking of, some updated articles were posted.

Our tracks have turns in both directions. :)

Still waiting for the Dubbo GP. :D

and by the looks of it, flameproof body suits!

Still, there wasn't anything left of that but the roll-cage!

Couldn't help being amused by the announcer's, "Goodness gracious!" as the car went over the fence. My own reaction was more like, "Holy FUCK!", but of course you can't say that on TV. :-)

And yes, thank the DOYC for roll cages and flameproof driving gear.
