Why Do People Drive Backwards Around Mt Panorama Bathurst?

Recommended Posts

I'm in Bathurst working this week and when I'm here I always try to finish the day by driving a lap of the track. As usual today there was drivers going anti clockwise. You can do this no problems but why would you?

Any thoughts on this.

Too many racing sims? LOL I dunno. There is no lane marks but I don't see why not? I mean it is a public road after all is it not?

Its a two way road, with a 60 kph limit.

Tourists turn up, at Murrays corner, and seem to go straight ahead, rather than turn right, at Murrays.

By time they realise, if they do,,,,, its too late, so they keep going.

Funny you should post this.

I was working in Bathurst last Thursday and headed up to McPhillamy for lunch, on the way back down (at less 60) came across old bus converted to a motorhome heading uphill out of Forest Elbow on the wrong side of the road travelling at not much more than walking pace. Feel sorry for anyone who encountered him in the dipper.

 

But yes a two street, and very well signposted as such
