Non IPRA people, they didn't know where Damian Milano was from, we all know it's Victoria, they stated that Wayne Alway RX7 was caught up with Ray Hislop in the chase last year when we all know it was Rolf Mammers and wait for this one, it was mentioned during Race 2 that IPRA cars are essentially road registrable cars that can be driven on the road......LOL......but apart from the technical errors, I thought they done alright

Shouldn't have had any mistakes on rules or facts...

Would be good to have someone passionate about the category that knows the people and cars.

I think yoiu will find it was ex-competitor (years ago) Gary O'Brien, not Garry Mennel, he has done the stream for the last couple of years
He was pretty much road reg and Club car days
Contrary to popular opinion, I do have mechanical sympathy, I always feel sorry for the cars I drive.

Pics from the weekend are up. IPRA competitors please ignore the online pricing, I've got a special deal for IPRA - $90 for all your high res images via Dropbox or on USB posted to you.
800+ pics, so have fun browsing - I've tried to get a variety of shots of everyone, but with such a big field it's tricky!

Hey, after watching heaps of the Bathurst footage i think a =D> =D> =D> needs to go out to Scott Willing for how well the WRX did! It looked good on the road and was quite competitive for a LMT at Bathurst. Well done mate.

Scott was very fast. So was Michael King in the Evo. Shows how different tracks highlight the strengths and weaknesses of different cars. The LMT love the climb up the mountain and especially the 4WD LMT make some good ground coming out of The Cutting.
