are the V8 supercars loosing touch with the original idea of v8 racing,
Ulitimatly we have something that is neither holden or ford origin, powered by a powerplant that neither manufacturer still produces, essentially nascar blocks.
end of the day these race cars are so far removed from what is on the road and avalible in the showrooms. these cars do not carry the factory wheelbase, are a collaboration of both manufacturers..
but on the otherside of the coin, it is the penultimate race league in the country, every other county, at its top level of racing, is made up of cars that would have a 20km/20 min warranty driven on normal roads.. take it for what it is, big v8 going quick and doing what is loved.. just a shame to see the production car raped so badly in the aid of advertising.
there is no holden or ford left other than the heart, and you need to question why a 5.0 litre is still running. official comments have been things like to keep running costs down and the like.. bugger running costs have you seen the bill to create and maintain a team not even a front running team, sell the house, wife and kids and then some..
let me know what you think.
befiend or abuse me either way give me some feed back...
