Holden To Enter Paris-Dakar Rally

"Australian racing legend Peter Brock and former Formula One glamour boy Eddie Irvine could be racing Holden Adventra-bodied prototypes in the 2006 Paris-Dakar Rally if an Australian Teams ambitious plan comes to fruition.
The Gold Coast team, led by chief engineer Rob D'Ercole and designer Tony Cavallaro, want to field two cars in Class T2 (prototype vehicles).
Brock has seen the car and is very keen on driving it
The cars will be tested in the Australian Safari 2005"
Maybe Ford can do a Territory with the CAPA V8 conversion?

Didn't you know that Holden are already taking deposits for the Adventra-based 7.0 litre HRT All-Paw™. It'll be in dealers showrooms early next year so it's a given to race in any event that they see fit. Then, just after the event it'll be, "Oh, we can't build it for what we had originally told the idiots, oops customers, we could do it for. Sorry, it's off. Here's your deposit back, sans interest."

Lol, oh so true. No WAY they will be competing in anything but completely different cars with full-racing components with an Adventura bodyshell.

I was watching Nations Cup the other day, why the hell is the Monaros STILL in there?!?!? I was so glad to see the Lambo win.

T_Terror. Just like the Pajero's and the Touregs don't look anything like what is on the show room floor.
