Question Few VYs at AGP

There were only 3 or 4 VYs at AGP, I wonder if this is a strategy by the Holden teams to use their old cars in case of accidents or the VYs are simply not finished yet? There were a lot more BAs.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

Maybe the Ford teams are simply keener to get into the new cars than Holden are ...

More to the point, the VY isn't as good a package as the VX. The teams know this, and u could see it in the races. The double wishbone suspension is causing some troubles, and the VY is chewing through the rear rubber. I think they will suffer a similar fate to the AU, even though they have more downforce on the VY.

Losing my license wasn't the smartest thing i have ever done, but now i can save my ass off and buy a V8!!

Looks like the Holden teams are trying to figure out what all the "extra bits" on the new front suspension do. :-)

hahaha. Yeah I'd say the new teams aren't that pleasure with the new aerodynamic package and suspension package. How does the new engine fair aswell?
