Hard to top last year at sandown

It will be hard to top last years V8 round at Sandown. This was the greatest round last year and even better if you were there. When the podium came in front of the grandstand all the ford fans inculding myself jumped the fence and got covered in champagne while we chanted FORD FORD FORD. was anyone else on this site there at the podium last year?

I hope Ford repeat their sucess from Sandown last year this year but I have to say that the HRT and K mart cars look to be the quickest down the straights and Sandown is a quick track which doesn't bode well for the Ford teams.:dead:

That can't be right.... The Holden teams want to change the heads on their cars, because Ford has more straight line speed.

Another thing I find annoying is that HRT effectively have 5 cars to gain data from. TWR/HRT x 5 times x 12 test days = 60 test days.

So why hasn't this been addressed or on the other hand, why hasn't a Ford team exploited this either? :oo1:
