At the moment, any money that Ford is putting into V8 Supercars, might as well be put straight into Holden's pockets.
All that Ford has gained from their investment in V8 supercars over the last three years is: Nothing, except making Holden Commodore look good.
If AVESCO keeps supporting Holden dominated competition then I would be glad to see Ford pull the plug altogether. Instad they could run a dozen TS50's and a few XR8's in the GT production class.
I'm sick of this parity crap anyway. Just run production cars, and then see who has the better stret car!
Otherwise AVESCO should introduce a "Sallary Cap" type system, where all teams are given a yearly budget - esuring Fat cats like HRT are on a level playing field.
Mate I'm pissed off too - Had to get that off my chest.
