While the Championship seems to be getting stronger and stronger what do you guys reakon about other manufactuers entering the championship? Personally I dont have a problem with it, as long as there RWD V8's, and have a production based model thats for sale in Australia (no one off racing models).
It will bring more people to races, which means better racing and more money. And with others joining, it could potentailly become a more international event. Thats just my view anyway.
Won't need to worry about a third party entering the sport as Avesco are doing a good enough JOB of shifting the entire series off shore any way.
When are Ford or Holden going to stand up grow a back bone and stop this crap with Avesco withdrawing from races in each state.
Yeah its NZ one year, no WA the next. Then it will be some Asian country the year after, no Darwin next and so on. But back to the point. I dont mind that Toyota or even Mitsubishi come into V8s as I don't feel they will win or have much experience to get very far anyway. If your scared of them coming in for beeing to competitive then look at it on the bright side, the more competitive they are the more competitive FORD will have to be. Hence thier Product should be better.

I think that Toyota and Mitsubishi lack the key ingredient that both Ford and Holden have and that is FANS. I personally think that AVESCO won't get any more fans along to the races than they currently have and also if either of these manufacturers started winning I could see TV audiences and spectators dropping off.
If its not broke don't fix.
If Avesco do have the asia market in mind I think there will be enought support for both Toyota and Mitsubishi. Actually they would probably only have to hold two round to equal the attendance of several of our rounds.
