The 'Race That Stops A Nation' should really be Bathurst.

So watching some horses prance around a field for a few minutes equals a public holiday for one state in Australia, but the Bathurst 1000 doesn't. This, I don't understand, which both confuses and angers me.

My suggestion, The Bathurst 1000 should be moved to a Monday, and declared a public holiday, Australia wide.
