RE: Bathurst 1000.
Well done to Tamworth Regional Council for having the courage to cancel this year's Tamworth Country Music Festival due to the COVID risk.
If only Bathurst Regional Council had the same concern for its residents.
Unfortunately, it appears our councillors won't put our health first and cancel the Bathurst 1000 - or at the very least, ban spectators.
We get told rubbish such as it being ultimately the decision for Supercars.
Well, if that's the case, why aren't we paying our rates to them?
It is not too late to stop this madness. You cannot social distance the top of the mountain on race weekend.
The local law enforcement and medical community have spoken out against the race.
It's time for Bathurst Regional Council to get real and grow some kahunas.
