SBR BA on the news

Ten news had footage of the SBR BA testing. Looks sensational with much the same paintjob except the lights are fully covered in yellow. Ingall just said that Ford will now be able to match the commo's.

Ambrose's BA isn't complete, no paintjob is on it, and it only has some aero stuff.

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

Paint job is so on it. I saw it doing laps on the news.

I saw it doing laps on the news as well, and guess what, all they had on the car was the sponsors!!!!!!! The car is not finished yet!!

also note that SBR has updated their logo to BA spec.

Now, as for calls that this car is too plain, consider this, the AU Pirtek car made it onto the podium last year and was one of the most recognisable falcons in the competetion, my guess is that SBR want it to remain recognisble, hence the similar livery.

Also, note that their seems to be a fair amount of sponsors decals missing from this car, particulary the roof and rear quater panels, which means there is a lot of blue showing that would normally be covered up. As this is an unfinished test car (note the missing side skirts, i'd say the livery will be changed slightly and more decals will be added before the Grand Prix.

I only hope SBR change one thing, i hope they break up the yellow on the headlights, there is just too much yellow there.
