Bathurst - A Lap at Pace
Evidence that we to Bathurst. As advised, we drove around the race circuit at Mt Panorama.
Lap distance: unknown
Race record for V8 Supercar: about 2' 06"
Our time: a bit over 12 minutes
As Ewen wrote, we would crawl up thru the cutting in 1st gear. It's much steeper than it looks on TV.
Across the top is really nice, how to concentrate at 100 miles per hour is amazing.
But the down towards the start of the straight is amazing, tight, steep and I imagine as a car race driver would be so much fun.
Only a couple of other cars about on the track, one of course was a young teenager hoping there would be no police about so he could plant the boot on the straight. There were no around.
We had left Canberra to stay at Cowra, then Bathurst to stay overnight at Rylestone. A nice sleepy town with a great caravan park.
This week will be near Newcastle, visiting family, before heading north again.
Weather has been kind so far, cold overnight, a gentle southerly wind assisting our travels.
Today, very cool, winter has arrived up this way. Apparantly there is snow on the Barrington Tops in the national park.
Anyway, a good week to do nothing. If the weather improves, I might go for a run.
