I'm just watching and listening to the Touring Car Masters go thundering around one corner in my lunch break...

Yep. I have to try not to call it Clipsal any more.

I was going to mention that.
They had the best sponsorship deal in Supercars.
Everyone referred to the race as just 'the Çlipsal', not even Supercheap get that with Bathurst.

As a lifetime Holden fan I am pretty upset with the Opel Insignia/Buick Regal GS,  that is one ugly car.

Go Nissan :(

Never thought they'd even try to sell a Commodore hatchback! :o
You're right, beaten into shape with an ugly stick.

Someone mentioned to me last night that with the new circuit at Tailem Bend coming into the season, sponsors aren't exactly lining up for a deal for the Adelaide race. They're playing a waiting game to see what pans out with the new circuit. Makes sense.
