    22. Any interest in V8 Supercars?

      There appears to be a lack of interest in V8 Supercars going by the number of posts of late. Can this be attributed to the doom & gloom being spread about the demise of the Falcon? If this is the case then I'd say V8 Supercars is heading for real trouble.
