Parity review!!!

Just did some quick figures, and based on the rules(HRO supporters will find that hard to understand) I think that the AU will get a Parity adjustment after todays race. Can anyone confirm this.

I believe in Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and that HRT/KMR/TB are all seperate teams.

Who's going to push for it. I would imagine all the top Ford teams are trying to forget about the AU.

What adjustments could be made? The only one that is achievable is the front downforce. Are they going to design and manufacture a new splitter for it.

Actually, due to Fords finishing 123, in the interests of parity all BA Falcons will have a weight penalty of 23.647 tonnes added in order to return the rightful dominance to the HRO.

End transmission.

I doubt it. As far as Ford is concerned the AU is an unpleasant memory. They wouldn't want to put another cent into it.

Bet the BA cops the ruff end of a parity adjustment in time for Bathurst. They'll only be allowed to run 3 wheels.........

XC Fairmont Coupe (sunday cruiser)

There is know way in hell the BA should be given any parity adjustments until the performance of the full specced VY with Aurora donk is well and truly known from a few teams, in particualr the HRO brigade!!!
