V8 Supercar fever grips Hamilton

Well, this weekend is probably one of the biggest and most important in the history of the city of Hamilton. From tomorrow, Hamilton will be hosting the Hamilton 400 as part of the Supercar series. It is unique because the race will be contested on a street circuit. Large parts of Hamilton have been cordoned off to construct the street circuit. The event has been limited to 55 000 ticket holders per day. Yes, indeed - 55 000!

This photo is of a chequered flag, one of hundreds that have gone up around Hamilton as part of the city's marketing of the event.

I wonder if this event will be shown on television around the world? If so then there is a chance that I can see it here in SW Ohio where I live in Brookville, Ohio.

I also liked your post yesterday.
