If they still run the 5.oL does anyone know why, i thought it had to be a production based engine and seeing as the 5.oL isn't used in any ford anymore how can they still use it.
Because V8 Supercars in no way resemble the real Fords or Holdens on the road - all the cars share similar parts - i find it boring except for Bathurst. I prefer watching production car racing
