Question Any plans to beat the monaro 427???

I just finshed watching the Monaro finish one and two in the procar series (that pissed me off in its self) and it got me thinking, is their any plans for ford to design a car to kick the monaro's ass in the procar series? Or is that series not big enough yet?

Very interested.

Cheers
Trav.

Yes I'd love to see say DJR or something to beat it. I hate it, I hate it, I hate that 427 bloody banana car. I would love to see a ford ute do the honors.

Well I am more thinking what PROCAR are going to do about it beign there??? Apparently nothing, its going to be in the 24hr race again. Well this year I ain't watching it. Sorry but those 427 cars (they are NOT monaros) should not be there.

No, mainly because PHR stopped running it than it being outlawed though. Not 100% sure on that one I know if did recieve many parity adjustmenst before finally being forced to run in nations cup instead of GT-performance, I don't pay much attention to the procar series, for something that claims to run cars as they are from the showroom and then adjusts them for parity isn't my personal idea of a good category.

Have you heard that there is a group of guys trying to get one of the GT40 replica's (that are made in Melbourne, can't remember the company name) to enter in the Bathurst 24 hour race later in the year??
