The MSCA have done it again, Sandown sprint is on the same day as Bathurst , I seem to recall the last few years have been like this. I'm such a big fan of this race I will have to stay home, even though They have a TV out at the track, it's not the same, you always miss stuff happening.

Solution, record the 1000, watch the start, then the hourly update, each hour, then the last few laps!
The rest is one taxi after another!

I'm with Jason.
Watch hourly updates.
Safety car will be out within last 30 laps and it'll be a sprint finish anyway!

Why watch other drivers have fun when you can be doing it yourself? I'm planning on giving my zed a run that day...

I'm with Gordo, to me it seems silly to schedule a sprint meet for car enthusiasts when Bathurst is on. Besides it's only Sandown, two quarter mile straights with a left/right/left at the end.  ;D

Nice one Gareth,  two straights and a few corners, kinda sums up a race track.
I was going to do this one , but when I found out the date couldn't put pen to paper.
I'm just one of those guys that just has to watch the hole race, totally captivated , and don't want to miss one lap.
Bathurst is once a year.  And sprints in Victoria well come around lots.
