Why not let them all in?

Hair-brain thought.

Why not let any rear drive, four door v8 enter. Any vehicle
that suits certain specifications from companies that
manufacture vehicles in Australia can enter. And they only
have to build cars in Australia, the vehicle can be from anywhere in their empire.

Before you shoot me.

The investment required to compete would mean any
underveloped cars, think what Ford and Holden do to
produce a race car ready to tune for the teams, would
simply not qualify within the lap time or come last.

Don't have time right now to finish but have go at that.

Re: Why not let them all in?

here is an interesting bit in todays SMH:

Quote:
Ford is still unhappy about overtures being made by Tony Cochrane, chairman of Avesco, the company which promotes V8 supercar racing, to introduce a third maker into the series.

The car maker, which has opposed the plan since it was first mooted at Bathurst in October, has now suggested it will pull out of the series rather than see the competition expanded to include more makes of cars.

Ford and Holden were unimpressed when Cochrane floated the idea of bringing another make into the series.

Ford Australia president Tom Gorman bluntly restated his company's case last week. "There is a public stance and a private discussion in these matters and we won't put our mind behind someone who we don't think is a credible partner," Gorman said. "He [Cochrane] hasn't picked up the phone to speak to me, and I don't understand what his vision for the future is."

Re: Why not let them all in?

mmm, loose Ford or Holden and all will be lost. Toyota etc have no car out there in Australia that fans can identify with like a Falcon or Commodore. As soon as they address that issue things may change....but I don't see it happening anytime soon. Toyota particularly have the know-how and resources, but don't appear to be serious about launching a V8 Avalon or whatever to the Australian market.

Re: Why not let them all in?

If the others insist on selling FWD cars then let them race their POS. Then that would finally put them ni their place...

Hey!!!!!! They did once with the TT Supra (see avatar/sig), but lost interest again from there.
