Blueprint what a joke

Whats happened to the blueprint rules !

Ford have complied with there end of the bargain ,but holden it seems make their own rules up. Kelly Racing Team will still have the 18 degree Chev engines and so will PWR until April when they will recieve their Perkins built engines.

Holden asked for a 12 month extension in 2003 because they said parts were hard to get for the aurora engine and they needed more development time,
aswell and were granted a 12 month reprieve.So they have been racing around in hybrid cars (VT, VX, VY ) for the last twelve months and are no further advanced than they were in 2003.

So the last two Bathursts have been won by a hybrid Holden when they should have been full blueprint spec cars.So AVESO or TEGA should lay down the law and say if the Holdens are not full blueprint specs by 2005 then they will recieve a penalty of some kind.

Re: Blueprint what a joke

I agree, they should take the aurora engine, and if it sucks it sucks if it blows up then tough, your problem you had long enough to phase them in. I suppose we should be used to Holden getting their own way anyway, thats hows its been for so long
