    I there is one thing I hate about V8 Supercars, it's the way it's been completely whored-out (forgive the expression) by sponsorship.

    EVERYTHING has a sponsor.

    Like the Pedders Lap Counter, or the fact that this particular round is called "Microsoft Office".
    And how could I forget the Dunlop Safety car. Not just any ordinary safety car, it's a Dunlop safety car.

    The cars aren't so much cars anymore, rather they're just moving billboards with a collage of advertisements on them.

    I truly hope that formula 1 doesn't ever turn out like this.

    Formula one is just this ; front page advert for manufacturers , then sponsorship on top .... all motorsport is going this way (if it isnt there already) thats just the way it is .The tv companies now have to pay a fortune to televise it so they add in there tied sponsorship and we are were we are ...
    This is the world we live in (unfortunately) but as long as the racing is good and he prevalence of free streams (legal) continues the sponsorship is a small price to pay for us the viewers
