THEY all want a Mount Panorama title to their name, and who could blame them?
Parade has been keeping an eye on the Bathurst 12 Hour field and it is glowing with some pretty big names.
Supercars drivers past and present, including Chaz Mostert, Jamie Whincup, Craig Lowndes, Mark Winterbottom, Shane van Gisbergen, Steve Richards, Mark Skaife and Russell Ingall, are all looking to take on Mount Panorama in February.
The Bathurst track is known as one of the most challenging in the world for drivers, with its twists, turns and inclines, and everyone wants to be able to say they’ve conquered it.
All those high profile drivers have either won the Bathurst 1000 or been on the podium at the end.
Parade understands that the Bathurst 1000 is the race they really want to win, but any title on such a difficult track is nothing to be sniffed at.
The 12 Hour will give them the laps on the track they want and some Mount Panorama glory to their name.
A personal touch this Christmas
THE tree isn’t up yet, but Parade already knows exactly what she is putting on it.
Wanting to bring a little personalisation to her tree this year, Parade has invested money in some new baubles.
Each member of her family had a bauble made in their favourite colour, featuring their name and year of birth in silver glitter.
When December arrives, Parade’s tree will go up with the brand new decorations.
Christmas is about family and the baubles will serve as a reminder of what is important at that time of year.
Support a local performer
BUSKING sessions are continuing at the Mad Season Cafe.
Parade has heard a great local performer will be at the cafe on Saturday for the next session.
Cat Thomas has built up her talent at a few gigs around Bathurst and Lithgow and is trying hard to make a name for herself.
The community can support Ms Thomas by attending the busking session at the William Street cafe on between 11am and 2pm.
