Overtime rates on a Sunday - council workers patch Mt Panorama racing circuit during Bathurst 1000

Bathurst 1000 is an annual event, with months of preparation. It therefore came as a surprise when on lap 60, officials stopped the race for 45 minutes to effect repairs. True to Australian workplace conditions, there were 6 guys watching 2 guys doing the work (it's not like it needs to be done quickly). Note that there is even a guy leaning on a shovel! 

This being Bathurst (where in a previous year, a kangaroo jumped into one of the cars racing), other whimsical incidents of note included the light bar on the medical car flying off at about 120km and a spectator punting a white football onto the track.
