Question BA at Bathurst?

What do you all reckon the chances of a BA V8 Supercar being unveiled at Bathurst this year? Traditionally teams have launced their new cars for the great race (Lowndsey and Seto released new cars last year). Will the Ford teams launch their new cars (presumably BA) this year, or hold off until next season and use their old cars for the rest of this year? I would love to see a couple of BA's running around this year.

Re: BA at Bathurst?

Ditto.

I'm pretty sure one or two teams hinted at a possible (small) chance of a BA (then AV) being introduced towards the end of the season.

Who knows. I dont believe anything until I see it with my own peepers, nowadays. :-D

The only BA you will see there will be in the car park, or a mock up race car in the Ford tent.

Sorry but it's not possible. The only BA Supercar you'll see at Bathurst is on display, not on the track.

Rules don't let new models appear during the run of the season - they'll be there for next years opener tho ... :)

I wonder how many Ford teams will get the new cars from day 1?

yes they probably wont race this year but might be there as promo vehicles. from what i have heard there is up to 20 BA v8 supercars being put together currently in queensland alone. and i would presume some (or one) of them would be a promo vehicle for cartain queensland teams. i know this because a friend of the family and a few others saw some bonnet's, front fenders, and bumpers being loaded for transport from a brissie ford dealer.
