    Bathurst is just around the corner. No doubt there will be a few people meeting up at a friends house or heading to the local etc. If you are heading to the local, then have a plan B. If you are heading to a mates house and there's going to be a few of you, then how about playing your own version of Bathurst.

    Each entrant to the race must place a bottle of whiskey (or your choice of spirit) on the table, the car or driver you have chosen must be written on the bottle and must be legible. All bottles are then placed in a straight line.

    As the race starts and progress's, the car who is leading, 888 for example, that bottle is moved to the front of the line, and the process repeated over and over until the race is won. Whoever finally wins Bathurst, claims all the bottles on the table.

    If your car crashes or drops an engine, you can retire from the race and take your bottle off the table. You have the right to consume the contents to drown your sorrows. At this stage, you may discover you have more pit crew, than what you hired.

    Children can do the same version of the game with lollies or chocolates etc.

    @BurnettGroup , being a petrol head Bathurst is one of the holiest days for me (along with Le Mans, and every round of the World Superbike Championship).

    I like the suggested game! :)
