Bathurst is pretty difficult to access. The teams would have to fly to Sydney, and then they’re looking at a three-hour drive to get to the circuit. Hell, getting across the city could take three hours. I can’t see them going down Parramatta Road, even if it is the most direct route – which means they would have to take the M5, M7 and M4 just to get to the mountains.
When getting to the circuit is a feat of endurance in itself, it’s not exactly a great start.
