Let’s Bend it
DURING the Supercars season, there are three endurance rounds that are part of the Pirtek series – the Sandown 500, the Bathurst 1000 and the Gold Coast 600.
Why not expand the endurance series to make it a fourround series and have it at The Bend Motorsport Park in South Australia?
The Bend at Tailem Bend is one of the world’s best permanent new motor-racing circuits and it has world-class facilities.
Maybe this event could be called the South Australia 500 and it could be a sister race to the Sandown 500 held in late August.
With the co-operation of The Bend management and the State Government, why not try to get the South Australia 500 up and running for 2019?
This would further add spice to the Supercars’ championship and it would give the fans another annual endurance round to look forward to annually.
A South Australia 500 would get a higher TV audience as it would be shown live on free-to-air TV and it would be a great boost for the Tailem Bend economy.
A South Australia 500 would be easy to implement because The Bend has the circuit and the facilities to cater for such an event. Let’s do it. MALCOLM WEBSTER,

I think the world has gone awry on ethical behaviour, for we as youngsters were taught to respect our elders and all who work in authority.
As I see it the granting of freedoms probably started in the 1970s where authority was diminished.
To put it simply, who really does have authority now to discipline and bring our children up with the ethos of love your neighbour as yourself? RONALD FROMM,

In that time, I cannot recall any mention of privatising – and certainly none in the area that is one of the Government’s major responsibilities – justice, punishment and rehabilitation. You don’t fix problems by pushing them away. Time to rethink. B. MAYFIELD, Camden Park crime to confess in the privacy/ sanctity of the confessional where the priest can then counsel to go to the appropriate authorities as that first step?
Or perhaps even offer to be a support to the person outside of the confessional as they go to the authorities?
In addition, isn’t a confession usually made in anonymity? If so, how can a priest report when they don’t know who is in the confessional? DAWN TURNBULL,
