Though the V8 Supercar coverage in the gallery isn't what it once was, the crown jewel, the Bathurst 1000, has always had a gallery.

Towards the front of the October 11 edition of Autosport magazine, there is a two-page photospread of drivers coming down through the Esses and the Dipper. In the bottom right corner of there is an AUTOSPORT+ banner with text underneath stating "FOR THE BEST BATHURST PICS ONLINE, CLICK ON AUTOSPORT.COM/GALLERY".

When I read that last week I checked the gallery and couldn't find a Bathurst gallery. Almost a week later, and a week and a half since the race was run and won, there still isn't a gallery. What's going on? Considering its continuing appearance in past years when it has probably been almost the only V8 Supercar gallery, I'd find it a bit surprising anyway to not have one, but to give it a mention early in the mag and then not to appear leaves me rather bewildered... :drunk:
