Safe driving

My bus driver tonight was the spitting image of Mrs Crabtree, right down to the hair. And she had the attitude to match; swearing and shouting at other drivers, hitting the horn constantly... it's the first time I've ever felt a bit apprehensive on public transport. It didn't help that it was raining too.

Could have been worse - it could have been foggy as well. Just look at what the drivers had to contend with at Mt Panorama, Bathurst, today, in the first practice session for Sunday's race:

Another view, this time of Moffat's car with a Team Vodafone car in hot pursuit across the top of the mountain:

More rain is predicted for tomorrow and Saturday, but race day is supposed to be fine. I hope they got that right.
