The Armor All Auto Show at the V8 Supercars Sydney. Again there were lots of different cars and competition entries, and the usual muscle cars too.
Back at the V8 for 2013 after being away in 2012. It was very hot as usual, and the crowds were a bit thinner than before. A couple of incidents on track this day.
The Armor All Auto Show at the Sydney Telstra 500 showcased customised cars from over 1000 exhibitors. The star of the show was a 1966 Batmobile, although personally I was more excited by one of the motorcycles there. Read on and you’ll see why.
The main event at the Sydney Telstra 500. Hurtling down lanes that were at places only a little more than 2 car widths, I sometimes wondered whether it was wise to sign that indemnity form!
The Carrera Cup is the fastest single-make race in the world, and also the support category I most wanted to see in the V8 Supercars Championship. Making its comeback after missing the last 2 years, the race is comprised of identical Porsche 911 GT3s, which are one of my favorite cars as a kid.
Now in its third year, this was my first Sydney Telstra 500 event. We had a great day for Saturday, but unfortunately it was quite wet on Sunday.
