Terrible news for motorsport fans in Australia. Spectators at the prestigious Bathurst 1,000 touring car race in New South Wales have been limited to 24 cans of beer each after drunken behaviour marred previous events. Wine-drinkers are only allowed four litres. That's more than five bottles. And please, don't drive. Meanwhile in Minnesota, the aptly named Jerry Johncock, 81, may have his title taken away after winning the 80-84 age division of the Twin Cities Marathon because he accepted a catheter from a spectator (perhaps an Aussie) after 21 miles to help him finish the race. What are the chances of finding such a helpful supporter? But judges think he was taking the piss.
