Looking forward to seeing the V8s in America in May 2013. When I go to races, I tend to listen to the comms for the safety teams (safety car, rescue/tow truck/etc) as I find them the most interesting (and they have the most details about what's going on!).
I've only ever been to one other V8 race (Bathurst 2010) so I can't answer my own question, thus I'll ask you. When going outside Australia to race i.e. Yas, NZ, etc., does VESC take their own comms gear and operate on the "usual" frequencies they do in Australia, or do they operate on systems that the host track has in place?
This question popped into my mind seeing F1 racing at Texas this weekend. It would appear the Texas track has a radio system that may be unmonitorable (MotoTRBO) and I want to determine if there's any point in me exerting energy on figuring out programming for my scanner come May.
