Bathurst Time Again

It was that one time of the year - The Great Race. The Bathurst 1000 at Mt Panorama. I awoke early to get some things done before the race started at 8am. Excellent time to start on a Sunday morning. Sit back and relax for the next six and a half hours.

Some of that time was spent playing racing cars with Yu-Jin, hide and seek with the same kid, bit of sleep, hanging out of the washing and bringing in of the washing. That last bit nearly ruined my day. Kangaroos normally jump in a forward motion but while I was bringing the washing in one kangaroo entered the race track, got hit by Jim Richards, and started doing a few spins. Managed to catch it on the news on another station.

It was a good race until the last hour as Fords were leading for most of that time. Damn safety car was called out which allowed a Holden to lead, that of Greg Murphy, and he held on and drove beautifully to win, again.

It was bad enough that a Holden won but Murphy is a bloody Kiwi. Aaagh. Fords finished in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th. What a bugger.
