The roof line still ruins it for me. Well, that and the 2018 facelift.
As @Spacegoat mentions, it's still the roofline being off. That's also why I put those extra o's in too .
I suppose they have a new template to work with in it being a 2-door versus a 4-door, three box sedan.
Hopefully they’ll be able to use some very smart graphics to try & hide that HUGE glass area.
More of them having a new body in an old template. Which is why I called it a Ford Frankenstein Supercar, during the testing and initial camo pictures we saw last month. That roof line isn't going to change because of the current gen regs and while some have echoed the logical thing for VASC to do, it wont happen so this is what we're stuck with until new gen regs come along whenever that is.
Seems like she's got the right attitude. Really hope she can get a deal together (regardless of whatever team it's with) and does well down here.
Yeah, I'm hyped to see if she gets a ride and her progression. Would she accept an Enduro drive so soon?
Sensible & if she has one shot at making it, she's making sure it's done the right way.
Video of Abbie.
A wildcard maybe? I'd prefer to see her with at least a year of S2 under her belt before she gets an enduro drive.
The last thing she needs to do is rush it & blot her copybook.
I just asked her. We'll see if she answers.
A couple of changes for 2019. Knockout qualifying will feature at Symmons Plains, Phillip Island, Barbagallo, Winton, Hidden Valley, Queensland Raceway and The Bend.
And championship points will be introduced for the qualifying sprint races for Sandown.
I just wish for a day when the rulemakers say, it's a race xxx km long, how you do it is up to you. 1st to the flag wins.
We've now got 24 cars in the championship & I wonder how many different strategies the teams would come up with given an open book.
Still have a limit on the number of tyres any single car can use for the weekend but allow them to use either compound in every non-endurance round.
It looks like S2 are moving forward. From Practice through qualifying, teams/drivers get to use their tyre bank as they choose.
Really like the idea of using either tyre compound in every race. I'd even argue for that in the Enduro's as well. Let's mix up the strategies even more.
Begs the question what time would a Supercar do around Bathurst on the sticky rubber & how many laps would they last at full tilt?
I’d expect at least 1.5 - 2.0 seconds off.
Might have worked, as teams dial back negative camber at Bathurst. So, I'm not too sure Dunlop we're confident with that previous SS tyre.
Well, we can scratch one driver off that 4th Tickford seat.
Wouldn't mind seeing Heimgartner or Le Brocq at Tickford. There's more upside with either of those two than Holdsworth.
I’d really love to see the numbers Supercars has for all the configurations of the Altima aero.
I think it would make for a very interesting comparison & especially when compared to the data for the cars that it was running against at the time.
The downforce numbers for the '13 car, would be interesting to compare as well.
Interesting break down of how teamates fared against each other on the Supercars site. (Part 1. Part 2.). Amazing that Lowndes' average qaulifying result was 11/12th. Yet he finished 4th in the Championship. Also shows what a non factor Coulthard vs Scotty.
Coulthard had a better second year, but I think the engineer switch, ruined him. anyway, Scott has blasted every teammate he's had. I think Premat was actually his closest at GRM. He just had too many retirements and Did Not Starts.
Anyway, if Coulthard can't finish top 5 next year, he's done.
When you look at Craig’s career as a whole, he’s always been a better racer than a qualifier.
Something rather handy to have in the later years of his career.
Guess T8 saw this coming
Should work out alright for WAU. Apparently they only got twin spring front dampers this year. (Link)
Hopefully these cost cutting measures might result in more teams being able to compete up the front more often.
Definitely need more of that. Wasn't it a couple years ago, we saw the most different winners in two seasons?
Autosport are reporting that the vacant Tickford seat is set to go to Lee Holdsworth.
If Caruso finds himself without a seat next year, I’d love to see him partner Holdsworth for the Endurance Cup. They worked very well as team mates at GRM from 2008-2011, could only imagine they would drive well together in the same car.
