    Default Is it a disease - or what?

    Having stepped back from some physical involvement (scrutineering) this year, and having pretty well given up on F1 and Supercars since they went to Foxtel a couple of years ago, I find myself today in the somewhat crazy position of following 3 events from my home - luckily it's raining in Perth.

    1. Watching replay of last night's Canadian F1 Qualifying on my newly subscribed Kayo.
    2. Just starting to watch TCR on SBS right now. Loving TCR.
    3. Following my son & grandson racing RC cars in the Victorian State Titles in Mildura, on LiveRC, a free online live coverage of RC racing worldwide. (Latest result, qualy finished, grandson 2nd, son 3rd in qualifying, ready for finals, which is a best 2 of 3 format).

    I am enjoying the Kayo coverage of F1, I like to watch qualifying, but couldn't face a 2am start, and Kayo just holds it as a full replay. Renewed my interest.

    Just can't leave it alone!

    Yes I think you have an addiction, not sure how you fix it, maybe watch more motor sport so you don't get the shakes.

    Don't tell anyone but I think you are not alone, I have the same symptoms

    You have to draw the line somewhere! Phew - so I'm not as crazy as I thought.

    Hmm? Like watching every minute of the Indianapolis 500 last week? Shhh!

    Taking it to the next level, with my new-found interest in the new TCR series, I have today booked flights and accommodation in Melbourne for the weekend of 21/22 September to attend the Sandown Park Shannons Nationals round.

    Plus a few days either side for my wife and I to spend a little holiday time mainly in the CBD area. Planning to use the train to & from Sandown, I don't intend to hire a car. Will I be able to survive the carless experience?

    The obsession continues.

    Cheers.

    When I was last in Melbourne I found the best thing to was park the car at Docklands in the multi storey car park and catch the free tram around the CBD, other wise parking cost a fortune and you are always watching the clock for when the meter runs out.

    I think you will be fine. Melbourne public transport seems to work well most of the time.

    You can even take one of the old green trams for a ride around the city loop for free, worth a ride to go back in time and have a look around the inner workings of Melbourne.
