Whats going to happen next year? (The V8s)

Ford no longer use pushrods, the GT is coming out ... anyone know what is going to happen to the series? (i.e. regulations, what car is going to be used)

BA and VY will be used with same pushrod 5.0lt engines as previous years, though the Holden/Chevs get new heads similar in design to Ford.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

The Commodores also get a new block that is similar to the Ford block. They will also get the Fords front suspension and the BA supercar will get the same pick-up pionts on the rear suspension as the Commodore. (Project Blueprint)

The reason few people are agreeable in conversation is that each is thinking more about what he intends to say than what the others are saying and we never listen when we are eager to speak.

There is no Ford Tickford Racing anymore. GSR (Glenn Seton Racing) will still be sponsored by Ford Credit and is staying a one car team unless more money can be found.
