I just read the article on V8x and it says that the engines for the Falcon were devoloped by Penske Racing (CART team) and assembled here by Dean Leopold, previously with the Holden Racing Team.
It also says that the car was designed by ex-Formula 1 designer Ralph Bellamy.
It should go alright at Bathurst :cool:

I think this new team will get up to speed very quickly, I recall Howard Marsden saying they (PHR) are the best run racing car organisation in Australia. Now that's fair praise.

Which bank?

Where do they get the money to fund all the Ferraris, Mustang, V8 Falcon, transporters etc?:confused: I heard also they (PHR) are looking to buy or build they're own race track just for testing purposes! :eek: Bud isn't really a popular brand of beer here in Oz so I find it a little strange that they are the major sponser of the team.

Maybe it fell of the back of a truck ;) - Bud is REALLY BIG in America, maybe thats your answer?;)

What better way of trying to launch your bid for higher market share than with one of the best motor racing teams in Australia. PHR are obviously very well financed and very well run so why wouldn't you want to sponsor them.

I think that BUD would be pushing it alot as they see that through car racing they can attract a very large fan base for beer however im not sure that they could really compete about local producers.. but yeah , nothing wrong with putting a little more money into the australian motor industry..:D
