Green Headlights on FPR CAT BA

just wondering, on the FPR website it shows sketches of Lowndes CAT BA with green headlights. But the actual car does not have them.

Have the head lights been removed so as not to offend 00 motorsport or have just not been added yet

it also has Besnard's future BA with blue headlights

personally, i used to think coloured headlights would be good but after looking at the 00 BA with the lights (they look cheap), i think i prefer the regular headlights, the black surrounds just make it look more agressive

also sorry for asking, i know seton will get the next BA, but when??

+ great work by the FPR team and Lowndes to win the race

it just felt so good to see Lowndes in a Ford up front, it just felt right and after years of seeing him down the pack. Seeing him lead the way was mad!!!!!!!!

GO FPR

I actually thought Ritters 00 car looked ace with the green lights on in the rain yesterday. Looks pretty mean to me..

They only look the goods when they are on.

They grabbed my attention,they were the first things I noticed when Ritter was driving in pit lane with everyone around him scuffling in there when the rain fell, He had the light's on and the green glowed,looked really mean and aggressive.Blue and yelow on Lowndes and Seto would look great,dont know what color Besnard should have.

i reckon if they want coloured head lights they should just use coloured globes instead of puting a film on the head lights.

when on = look menacing, when off not so good. coloured bulbs however would resolve that. well done to lowndes, just need to find a bit more down the straight..................

With the lights on, the 00 car looked the best it has all season.

I wish DJR kept a hold of Ritter, he was the quickest of their drivers at Bathurst, and he should be lighting up the track in the yellow terror this year...

i dont know, but seems that HRT still seem to have the speed over the other teams

i thought it was suppoesed to be closer racing or maybe the Ford teams need time to develop the BA

except for SBR, not even FPR have the pace of HRT

remember, the front row for Phillip Island was all HRT

good to see Lowndes won the race but even he said they did not have the pace and this is there Test Track

maybe i'm just being a bit pesemistic, but the if u look at thetop ten in the championship there all Holden

but there is still many more rounds to go........

FPV are so young !!!!!!!!!!!!!!They need time and there are only 24hr in a day its a finite resource.

The facility being built will be the newest state of the art complex and the results are sure to followwith PRODRIVES backing and International motor racing experience.

The best is yet to come from FPV - they must succeed with drivers of Lowndes,Seton and Besnards calibre..

Patience is needed.
