Ford will always be the enemy


I'd take a nice XT GT all the same though!!!






So then if are not a Ford supporter then you are a supporter of a race car that looks like 4 cylinder FWD car built in a German factory owned by Puegeot/Citreon with a Holden badge stuck on the grill that for a joke GM called it a Commodore.

Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level and beat with experience every time.

Agree, this is tantalising. And weíll also see if the team have the ability to produce a winning car...because thatís what the Mustang is.

This is great for the series.

I'm actually wondering about the Blanchard REC. With the rumour that Slade is leaving BJR and Jack Smith could go to BJR in an REC owned by someone else. I find myself wondering if Blanchard is selling up or moving somewhere else, with Macauley moving to car 14?

Somewhere I read that BJR were looking at running a 4 car squad next year and were looking for a fourth REC.

Even Brad said that 2019 was too soon for Macauley to move from Super2 + Enduros. It looks like he was right, but Macauley will probably continue in the Cooldrive car.

BJR will want two experience drivers in their main team, and there look like being a few cut loose by other teams.

The fourth car is likely to be a customer car.

I think that engine componentry for all V8 Supercar engines is know and available to rival teams.

Data and specialised parts are readily available from USA. The Drag Racing world, and suppliers like Rocket, can provide parts at short notice.

The Kellys already have facilities and competent engine builders to screw it together. It is basically a kit. Ford performance will clearly help. It is an established racing engine type, not the light truck engine they tried with Nissan.

There is also adequate time available before they race next year.

What a bullish response from Adderton. Seamer/technical dept was never going to bow down to him, otherwise we'd have 20 other sponsors making demands.

Does this mean GRM are gone?

I don't think the engines will be a drama for the Kelly's - they're all pretty even and developed, especially in the Ford. All advantageous performance is based around the effectiveness of the spring/shock.
Which Adderton above wants controlled.

They might go, but Gary has always been good at squeezing a few $$$ out of sponsors here and there.

Honestly don't know why Captain Boost doesn't just spend more to develop his uprights if he actually thinks that's what is slowing his team down.

Was brought up on page 37

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

Because captain Boost likes to make it look like he can splash cash, but the reality is he doesnít have the balls to actually dig deep and pay for a race winning team like others. To me, he has effectively railroaded GRM out of the series by buying jig with them and then dumping them.

GRM have said that is it and they are out but yes Garry always finds something. One of the reasons boost changed teams was dollars, GRM are cheaper then WAU plus you get the added attention of Gaz and his antics..


Control uprights from 2021 apparently so itís hardly any point developing new uprights for a season however for the right price I am sure other teams would help them out for a season to keep them in the sport even if they had to jump ship!

Boost boss is always sooking about the team not getting enough exposure for the money, this is just another tanty for attention and publicity. Me, I am hoping he ****s off out of Motorsport altogether but GRM stay.

It appears that GRM are out, or does it? It's really hard to tell with them and their sponsor these days.

I wonder:

If a team hands back it's RECs, can it still enter Wildcard Entries in the enduros including Bathurst?

Looking like a fair bit of REC movement too.
MSR currently lease Bright's, but their two years are up, so they have to buy it, or lease/buy another (cannot lease Bright's anymore).

Enter the sold two KR REC's. TasV8's link suggests Team18 and MSR have bought one each. Where to for Bright's (MSR suggested having 2 cars? Sydney team)?

This would also mean Team18 have a new opening - who goes there?
They say Hazlewood and Slade will definitely be moving on... and Pye isn't confirmed at WAU either.

Every year seems to top the one before.
