V8 Supercar Rule Changes for '02

Has anyone read any of the rule changes for this year?
Here is a couple of the more interesting ones.
1. A fuel restrictor plate in the refueling system to achieve an approx. 30sec refuel.
2. All types of pitstops can now be performed under a yellow (safety car period).
3. Points for endurance races will be split over the two drivers of the car in question. ie Win Bathurst 400pts, both drivers will each receive 200 pts.

IMO the piting under a yellow flag will have the biggest impact and I guess we will see some interesting strategies used this year.

Watch out H**den the Fords are finally coming !!!

Crikey that's going to make the pits rather messy at a few rounds. Good idea but I'm glad I won't be working in the pit area!!
