Another good article, but Chris Lambton ... or Chris Lambden?
Saw 2 F5000 events back in the 70's - great stuff. First time was at Sandown in 1976 or 77, along with a round of the ATCC. Was on a staff training trip over from WA and this timing was perfect! Second was back in WA, in 1979 the AGP was held at Wanneroo Raceway, the first big time F5000 race held in WA.

Love the idea of a summer series, just like the old Tasman days :)

*Edited. Thanks for pointing that out. (It's what happens when you're operating on minimal sleep. ;)

Thanks James, nice pics. Your pics pretty much spell out that I should ignore the naysayers that bag SMP in the other forums and comments spots. Wasn't going to happen this year, but if AGT gets a slot on the bill next year, I might find my way up from Melbourne.

Good stuff James.
The disqualification of the Twigg/D'Alberto & G.Taylor/Denyer cars at SMP flew under the radar a bit as far as chat on the subject, possibly because people thought it was straight forward and fair, didn't know about it or don't care.
It was a very unlucky and unfortunate set of circumstances which resulted in the correct call according to the rule book, however it was too severe a penalty in my opinion.

Remember Bob Hudson's "The Newcastle Song???"
Maybe only us oldies do, but surely there is still a nine foot tall Hell's Angel in Newcastle that can take care of the haters!

You never let a chance go by to make that joke. [:P]


James, I have to ask. Were the NIMBYs against the event in your spotter guide part of the fig tree mob a few years ago?

I ask this as I had to help my nan move from Newcastle (Sandgate) to Gunnedah a few years back and that was all I heard on 2HD. Fig Trees.

I can't say for sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were. 2 years to cut down a dozen trees. What a ridiculous s**t fight that was.

Great article. Agree with everything you said. I really enjoyed the TenTV coverage. I'm not a fan of street circuits, but (seeing it on TV) it looked to be pretty good. I hope Newcastle sticks with the series. I read during the week that Neil Crompton got a well deserved gong for his commentary work. He's up there with Australia's best sporting commentators.
