What I think about The Bend Circuit

Everyone with it only being just over 50 days to the V8 Supercars hit the new circuit The Bend Motorsport Park in SA I would give you my thought on it.

You can see a picture of what the track layout will be when the V8 Supercar drivers will be driving around it in just a little under two months time. It’s the first time there is going to be two Supercars events in South Australia in the same year.

the orange outline is the track they will be racing on, it is 4.95 km making it the second longest track behind Bathurst. This is going to be a hard track for the drivers as its a new track and most of them wouldn’t have driven it before. The drivers will do a walk around like they do at every track but they will be looking at the apexes on all the corners where they think the best driving line is and where the best overtaking spots are. I reckon probably one of the best overtaking spots are is the corner into a chicane after the long straight and also the corner coming onto the straight as well.

The Bend Motorsport Park are also trying to win the hosting rights to hold the Australian MotoGP round there if they can, if the Australian MotoGP were to go somewhere else I believe it will go here as it is a very new circuit and I like the GP in Melbourne but I would like to see it at a different track. If it was to host the Australian MotoGP it will give the riders and new track to race on that they haven’t before and give them a different type of race all together.

Do you think this is going to be a good circuit for the drivers and the teams and will it stay for a long time in the supercars series. Also what would be your favourite corner on the track

Until next time

Cricket Australia new broadcast deal

Hey

with the news of the Australian cricket broadcast coming from channel 9 to channel 7 and fox sports I thought it would be good to talk about it

This will be the first time that any form of cricket will be on channel 7 but not the first-time Australian home cricket matches have been on Foxtel. It’s a six-year deal and worth about 1.2 billion dollars with Seven get the right to telecast cricket they have become the only free to air TV network to have the biggest Australian winter sport AFL and the biggest Australian summer sport Cricket. There is also talk that there will be different commentary teams for Foxtel and Channel seven when the men’s tests are on the women’s internationals, the 43 big bash games on Channel seven and all the WBBL. I would like if they had the same teams for Foxtel and Channel seven but Channel seven doesn’t have all the men’s big bash games they only have 43 were as Foxtel will show those 43 but have 16 exclusive big bash matches also with Foxtel you will get all the Men’s T20Is and all the Men’s ODIS so if you want to watch every single cricket match in Australia now you will need to get Foxtel or know some body that has Foxtel and go to there house to watch the matches.

I would like to see if the channel nine Commentary team will come over to channel seven or Foxtel to commentate or will we see a whole new Cricket Commentary team on Foxtel and seven I don’t think we will see Bruce McAvaney commentating on all the matches probably only some of them probably the Adelaide oval matches as he leaves in Adelaide and the Boxing day matches other than that he probably want commentate on any more.

I would like to see Dennis Cometti come out of retirement to at least commentate on one match in Perth as he leaves in Perth.

if you would like to see anybody Commentate I would like to hear you reason behind that person and why you have chosen him or her thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed reading
Until next time
