Yeah I was thinking the same thing.

That was crazy though! F1 would be way more interesting if they had it there.

Listening to the car I don't think he cracked 300km/h - I suspect with a bit more practice and some gearing changes for Conrod, he would lop a good 3 seconds off that time.

Surely this is being passed around the table..

 

Melbourne wants to get rid of F1 once their contract finishes..

 

Bring it to Bathurst.. That would be epic.

I reckon a proper attack would drop at least another 8-9 seconds.

I think he said in an interview afterwards the was at least 7 seconds to be had, you could see he wasn't pushing 100% at all of the corners.

^ He said breaking 1:40 would be achievable (or words to that affect)

Yeah as someone said above, full telemetry would be great. I wonder what the top speed and average speed of that run would be?

F1 moving to Bathurst would be incredible, not a fan of the Melbourne 'track'. Make it happen!

Yeah it sounded like it had a lot more to give going down Conrod. It wasnt geared for the track, was it?

 

+1 for seeing the F1s at Bathurst.

I dont think it was geared for max speed down the straights, it also had throttle limited to 80% and it was obvious both drivers weren't going as hard as they could.

I was there watching it on that day, it sounded so good. You could hear the car as it worked its way around the mountain, then come screaming down Conrod. I had never seen or heard a F1 car in person before that, so it was doubly awesome to see one at Mt Panorama.

premier of vic said he doesnt want f1 in melboune any more.

 

maybe we can get barry to get f1 here when its contract expires (few years)?
