"Bathurst 1000" Bathurst by Tina-Perth
Bathurst Travel Guide: 77 reviews and 259 photos
Having never been a car racing fan, it was with reluctance that I agreed to join my partner Steve on an invitation by Orrcon Racing to attend the Bathurst 1000.
Sooo glad I did! I absolutely loved it. Mind you, we were treated like gold by the terrific team at Orrcon Steel.
We spent our time in the Sponsor's Box (right above the pits). As it happens, I know Larry Perkins from when I sat with him at a dinner when he visited Perth for the races at Barbagello Raceway, so I got to catch up with him whilst in Bathurst.
Larry Perkins is a terrific guy. A real Aussie bloke. You can just tell he's a nice guy by looking at his face.
Larry invited us into his pit and showed Steve and I the computers and how the show runs. It was great, very exciting.
Larry Perkins as you may or may not know is Holden. Orrcon support Mark Larkham who is Ford. You can look up either of them on the internet and receive newsletters if you like.
One of the wonderful things that the Orrcon team did for us was give us all a ride in a helicopter to view Mount Panorama from the air.
A great experience and a totally different perspective on the track.
- Pros:Atmosphere, excitement
- Cons:Nothing really, not even 'Feral Hill'
- In a nutshell:Not just for boys
