    Ryan Walkinshaw sadly had big boots to fill when his dad passed away , unfortunate but not altogether surprising .

    I have to LOL at the prospect of Walkinshaw seeking to use the Brock name. Good luck with that one :lmao:

    Piss supercars off all together, go to GT racing,

    as seeing there'll be no aussie ford or holden,

    might as well give the 'stang and corvette a platform,

    and I'd like to know that I can go buy an Aston, or Corvette that's just raced.

    I agree with these sentiments 100%. I really enjoy the GT class, more than Supercars now.

    The only minor hole in your plan is that GT racing is not commercially viable in Australia as the main game. At best you get the Bathurst 12hr but that seems to be a year on year proposition for sponsorship weather it will run or not.

    I love the British touring car racing, now that a buzz.
