Meanwhile!!! Back in Oz. They are arguing as to whether we should finance this race. Some say that it puts Melbourne on the international sports map and the spin off means big bucks. Like who watches our international horse races and football. Even though they are screened world wide.Others argue that the noise and the cost can not be justified. In this city we cater for every type of sporting event, and you can walk from one to the other. But Eccelstone , or whatever his name is , is getting a lot of flack. A lot of people want to be rid of this event. I think that it is probably worth the expense, and there is a spin off that is worthwhile. We have a huge sports package here and the race is part of it. As for me, not into crowds, the lonely deserted hills beckon and the K and I are one on the twisties.
