(Newser) – Fans headed to a four-day event that’s a highlight of the Australian auto-racing calendar will only be allowed one case of beer per day—or 36 cans if it’s light beer. “Wine lovers have not escaped the heavy hand of the law either,” the Guardian notes of those bound for the Bathurst 1,000, beginning Thursday, “being restricted to a punitive four liters a day.”
