Comment of the day

Sunday’s Australian V8 Supercar race was a good example of what can go wrong when the racing rules are made too complicated:

It was a fine example of gimmick rules going wrong.

A shortened race, rain etc… – 140-litre fuel drop, time certain. All to fit TV windows and to “spice things up”… sounds familiar.

V8 Supercars is second on my watch list after F1 and I watched it yesterday but have to say it was confusing as hell.
