    its a shame tom walkinshaw is a piece of shit, and 90% of the V8 supercar community wish he'd disappear.

    Searched before I posted. Was it maybe the Holden versions and not the Vauxhalls that were posted before?

    Sure, whichever.

    I thought they were already released awhile back as Holdens anyway, and Vauxhall was just getting around to rebadging a version for themselves.

    Actually, the answer I was looking for was...That race that happens every year that all the white trash scum/rednecks watch and think it's exciting :mamoru:

    Well we don't know that much about it. An Aussie OTer sent me a video of an old race from back when the R32 GT-R ran, and it looked great.

    It might not be the most exciting touring car race you guys have, but it's a far sight better than what the rednecks like over here. ;)

    Too be fair, and not just a troll: It is exciting. The track is pretty narrow. It is the number one 'Touring Car' (they changed it to V8 supercars when the jap cars started owning the shitty australian cars too easily) track in Australia.

    I'd love to see NASCAR adopt a similar format to what you guys have for V8 Supercars. I'd not only watch them on tv, but I might actually try to attend a race. :o
