Splish Splash V8 Supercar Bath!

It is often stated by people who do not understand, that motor sport is not really a sport, that all competitors do is drive an engine around in a car all day, around and around in circles. Of course, racing drivers are among some of the fittest athletes on the planet.

And some of the bravest. For example, have a look at some brief wet weather highlights of the most recent V8 Supercars event, held today at Sandown International Raceway:

Many motor sport categories involved in banked oval track racing – (such as NASCAR) – due to higher centrifugal forces, are suspended when it rains. Many road racing series stick it out with wet weather tyres.

Bravery to the extreme.
