There will be more motor racing excuses this weekend than all the NRL and AFL coaches (and Aus cricket team players) combined can put together.

Be good if they would televise the 12 hour race. Probably more interesting than the two car Supercars series seeing as neither car is Australian anymore.

Neither car is anything remotely close to the production car it draws it's name from. So it's really a case of one race car design team being a bit behind the other. The mustang has been reaching for a few seasons already so no big surprise it's a bit faster than the Camaro to begin with.
I said much the same thing to the drivers group at a press conference once. Brocky himself nearly chewed my head off! Oops. Wasn't the best choice of words..

plenty for each side to complain about now tho, each has different engines like factory so no doubt we will get the u have more cubes, then we can say back that well u have 3 more camshafts... least the Camaro looks better then the ZB

The Mustang guys were whinging the Camaro was quicker, so they did a parity test....Turns out, the Mustang was better than the Camaro so they have done some more upgrades to the Camaro....

So there will be more whinging by the Mustang guys
