Thought we needed a V8 Supercar thread for the actual racing. Smile

I watched the first race from Tasmania. Wow, what a show. I might be seeing things, but these new regulations make the cars more oversteery on corner exit’s, and its fun to watch. Those engine sound pure evil – love it.

The racing was fast and furious with a little paint swapping too. The Tasmanian circuit is excellent, the short layout kept things competitive.

I love the half-time break, and a double-file restart to resume. If you want to know why double-file restarts are so great – watch that race. Before the break, the field got a little strung out, after the restart, cars were dive-bombing corners and packs of cars gave great action.

Kudos to V8 Supercars to realising the excitement that double-file restarts offer.

In terms of TV coverage, Premier Sports is miles ahead of what Motors TV ever offered. The quality difference is night-and-day.

Must-watch viewing this weekend: V8 Supercars from the Circuit of Americas in Austin, Texas. All four races will be live tonight and tomorrow night on Motors TV.

The American audience should like V8-supercars. They rudely gurgle like NASCAR cars, have roof's and they race hard just like the Cup Series does.

What a superb race 1 that was. V8 Supercars really puts on an amazing show. There was overtaking and banging throughout the field.
The “national” circuit has its advantages – it kept the field close together whilst not ditching the circuit’s key sections.

It is an impressive crowd considering this is the first visit to USA for the series.

Motors TV had no excuse not to show the Austin races live - Saturday/Sunday night is prime-time TV viewing.
