mad GTP racing at GMC400

Well we had to cop it in the V8Supercars, no we're getting it handed to us in GTP aswell.

Procar are adding weight, and applying a rev limit to the Mustang RA:cussing: :thumbdown

While doing this to the Mustang, they are allowing GTS's rev limit to be raised from 6000rpm, to 6,300rpm.

This is a crock of SH!T. Since when do you have parity in production racing, I want to see the cars for what they are.

Procar - HSV ........... :flame:

That is pathetic, the results of 1 race doesn't show how the rest of the series will pan out. What a very poor move by procar :fmad: :fmad: :fmad: :fmad: :fmad: :fmad:

You got that right DK. I didn't mention that there are also other cars involved in the parity adjustments. This is damn production car racing for ****s sake...can't we leave it at that...

The Turbo cars arnt allowed exhaust mods either, as it increases Turbo Boost above factory levels.

I thought it was a manditory two years wait before a parity adjustment was made. Yeah i am sure it was two years before Tega got off their ass. How many races has the Mustang been to to come up with that conclusion?

1 race, 1/2 of a meet, as the Mustang had engine firing probs in the first race. The second race resulted in the Mustang stomping on the field in such a fashion that it sent Holden bosses crying & screaming to mummy (procar) 'it's not fair!' like spoiled brats. :fmad:

mad

What an absolute Joke, John Bowe wins one god damn race and they think he is going to dominate the series. There is one Mussy in the field and about 5 GTS's so does this mean they want the GTS to fill the spots 1-5 with Bowe in the Mustang 6th.
Typical just like V8 Supercars they cater for Holden because they are said to have the most fans.:mad3:

That is the most disgusting news I have heard of in motor racing in years. The body who manages the sport should be completely ashamed of themselves.

Somebody should find some contact information on the concerned parties that made this ruling and we should tell them what we think of this.

And I was going to start watching the Production series this year - they can forget it now. I want to see what manufacturer has the best package that can perform well on the track. If I want to watch a close and slow race with parity I'll watch the Daewoo Lanos series or commodore cup thanks!!
