I'm sorry for saying it, but I completely hate and oppose the V8 Supercar format, and the cars which they race. Since when the hell have Holden or Ford sold a 5 litre V8 (which are nearly the same). Next thing you know it'll be a NASCAR clone with shells shaped a bit like the cars which they actually sell.
**** I miss Group A, instead of banning all other manufacturers and making it a closed series why not try and improve on the quality of Australian cars? It makes Australians look like sore losers, just because we couldn't build a car to match the mighty GT-R.
These days the reality is that the Ford I6 Turbo's are better than their V8s, but we insist on keeping this relic series alive
EDIT Off topic: And just to think, the VN was set to feature the Nissan RB30/ET motors until Nissan put the price up (Buick nearly wasn't ready, which is why the series 1 was so rough). The RB30ET which was better than the VL V8... what kind of crazy world would we live in if they dropped the 5.0L all together or made a good enough deal to get the RB26DETT in some form of super Commodore.
X3 in agreeance with that. I liked it better when they handled more like our bog stock commodores and even prior to my time some of the old footage of buckets of water on the rotors to cool them off. bring back 'real cars' .Agreed totally omega.....I was bought up on a diet of group C/group A....personally I havnt been interested at all since the early 90s.....
I watch bathurst every year just as a tradition now....
Sorry to say champ,but you missed the boat a long time ago......they havnt raced a holden commodore since the early 90s....
Not quite sure if you get it.....they couldnt slow the holdens down because holden dont race,the fords arent in front because the fords dont race either...which also means they cant be getting cocky because they do not exist......What we have is a nascar style scene..... purpose built racecars built to go around corners(not one corner like nascar)that have the basic(and I mean basic)sillhoette of the passenger cars they are "supposed" to resemble....thats whats crap
its not a holden any more
they have had to slow all the holdens down now all the fords are in front and the ford ****s r getting cocky
i also only watch bathurst as a tradition
even though fords win that too now
