mad Double standards

Got this off www.streetcommodores.com.au

A war of words has broken out between Ford and Holden over alleged technical breaches by HRT.

Ford officials have accused V8 officials of double standards after Holden was called to explain an irregularity in Todd Kelly's car at the Surfers Paradise round.

A similar breach from Ford driver and likely series champion Marcos Ambrose in July resulted in a public furore in the immediate aftermath and Ford motorsport manager Stephen Kruk told AAP that it appeared Holden had escaped the same scrutiny.

"We need to understand why the system hasn't dealt with these two issues equally," Kruk said. "Not only has Holden got nearly three weeks to work on their defence, they've got away without any public scrutiny and without any damage to the brand in the way that Ford and Stone Brothers Racing were attacked."

"We had people from Holden like Mark Skaife and Larry Perkins (Castrol Perkins Racing team owner) accusing us of cheating. And what we're equally concerned about is who was able to create an environment of silence for 18 days in this case?"

Re: Double standards

Unfortunately double standards in V8 Supercars is nothing new, but at least Ford are finally standing up for themselves.

Re: Double standards

As Mike said.

Ford have been taking this crap for years while morons like Murph the turd have been twisting it around saying things like "well Mr Ambrose has gotten away with his fair share of things over the years". About time to see Ford doing it bit to make the H mob eat their boots.

Re: Double standards

it is funny they (commo forums) call it inconsistent yet the rule wasn't created until after the Ambrose incident. So the Kelly incident would be the first one since the rule was created?
