Great to see that a survey has shown heaps of support amongst Wellingtonians for holding the V8 Supercar street race here with 71% very positive, 18% slightly positive and only 5% negative.
It wasn’t a fully scientific random poll, being amongst rugby fans only, but still a great level of support.
Talking of motorsports I had to laugh reading yesetrday about how things are going with Michael Laws in Wanganui and specifically his axing extra funding for the local art gallery. All the locals interviewed agreed with him, with one young resident saying how he would never go to an art gallery but would love to have some money for some sort of demolition derby where he can watch cars smash into each other all day. Why not I say!
