yeah V8Supercars is important, and I just hope with the new Ford Factory Team they may just gain back some ground. The HSV domination is not just money, it is connections too. I know a few years ago (and have no reason to think it has changed) that HSV used to use the shock absorber (and other) testing equipment of Arrows (TWR) F1 team. This is valuable testing info.
Maybe Ford can use their Jaguar connection for similar results???
