This is the Best Way to Watch a Car Race


An invitation from AMG to watch the Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour on the first weekend in February was just too good to refuse. Who would not enjoy watching this race from the air-conditioned comfort of the Ridges Hotel at Mt Panorama? Plus, catering and parking was thrown in for good measure. The AMG crews were faultless. However, some of the fellow AMG owners were somewhat less so. Talking about needing a healthy dose of reality. Complaining that the Lamborghini Huracan will not fit a set of golf clubs! I hate using this term… but, reality check people!

The trip to the top of the mountain and the turns made me speechless. The speed of the cars defied logic. The best time on the day was MacLaren at 2.01; I think I could just about manage the circuit in 15 minutes without frightening myself stupid.
