AUSGP: TRT’s Race Week Media Diary

Looking back – the Australian Grand Prix was a big one to be working in the media. Here, the author recounts his weekend at the races, writing stories and capturing the action in what was, at times, a challenging yet rewarding five days... The Plan As always before a big meet, I like to plan things out minute-by-minute; having things mapped out means that I don’t have to think on the fly, I don’t miss out on anything, and I don’t double up on photo angles (too much). The plan before the weekend started is above, although it evolved a

National Motor Racing Museum

It is genuinely one of our favourite places, and right now, it is even better, with the National Motor Racing Museum currently playing host to the Chrysler in Australian Motorsport special exhibition.

Welcome to Bathurst’s Happiest Enduro..

HERE’S the thing about the Bathurst 6 Hour. If the 12-Hour is the International Bathurst and the 1000 is the Big Bathurst, the 6-Hour is the lovable Bathurst. I’d argue no major event in Australia has a paddock so amiable, so chilled and so content and excited to be there as the one assembled this weekend in the Mount Panorama garages.   Yes there’s still a race to be won and yes on Sunday afternoon this race will display all of the same seriousness, intent and theatrics as the ones February or October delivers. And yet now, as teams set
