    I will never get over how ridiculous that wing is.

    In that pic, it looks straight off a TIE Fighter.

    :lol:

    And I thought the Altima and ZB wings were huge. The Mustang looks like it's going to blow them out of the water.

    I can't believe they're actually running that wing...

    New Sponsor? :sly: Just peel the livery off this and apply it to the Mustang

    The end plates of the wing just look like a couple of dodgy off cuts. If it was more smooth and had actually shape to it like the ZB wing, the height of it wouldn’t look so bad.

    I hope that’s before they’ve put the signage on the car.

    It’s looking a little bare at the moment.

    Looks darker than previous blues. Almost like the Red Bull blue.

    Guess this all but confirms Heimgartner and Jacobson then. Interesting to see what backing Jacobson has seeing as Mega Fuels are apparently sponsoring WAU.

    Also, shows how ruthless T8 are. :lol:

    :lol: A bit of a no-brainer for T8 to ditch Caruso for Tander.

    :lol::tup:!!

    Expecting this to confirm Richards as Frosty's co-driver.



    Edit: WAU reveal on Monday.

    No trace of purple in that WAU sneak-peek so no Mega Fuels unless they're paying mega bucks for the bonnet :confused:

    Not his own(not husband, haha) fault NISSAN backed him with the all important #23. Also, not his fault they were all crashing into one another, joined at the hip each race.
    He's not my number one pick, but I'd like to know the deal with his sponsorship.

    I really hope it isn’t Mega tbh. They’ve got a level of cheapness about their image, and even through their tumultuous recent history, WAU have always looked like a proper and professional outfit.

    Bit of a shame for Caruso really, always liked him. Would've liked to have seen him get another drive but I guess that shows there's a good young crop coming through to displace him. Or rich.

    If it's Jacobson in the seat, it's been too long. About time he gets to show his talent. He should have been out the same time Lebrocq graduated.

    Advantage being, he's driven the S2 Altima with standard shocks. As a rookie, in the Altima package, I'm not expecting him to be top 15. However, I do hope KR unlock more speed. Heimgartner did pretty good. Maybe Jacobson can get some of that.

    It’s a black and white photo. :p

    I’m also disappointed to see the departure of Michael Caruso. Regardless of stats, I’ve always rated him. He’s a top talent and I’m sure he’ll fit in nicely as Lee Holdsworth’s endurance partner (calling it now). Perhaps there’s a chance he’ll turn up at GRM again for their TCR effort.

    Honestly at first glance, I thought it might have been a camouflage livery for a certain coupe. :lol:

    But yeah, think you could be right. Unless they've changed their colours. Might not be Mega on that bit of the car.

    You were right (but it isn't really a surprise)

    Webber just lapped Mount Panorama in the Porsche. He's said he doesn't want to race on the mountain, though he did strike up a thought with Eric Bana.

    I'm thinking, MW is best friends with Alonzo. Alonso is taking part in all these series around the world. What if he and MW got together and WAU/Zak Brown hooked them up with a VASC for the enduros? If it ever happened, would Alonzo have that much of an influence, to finally get MW to race at Bathurst?

    Short answer: No

    There’s more chance of seeing them team up for the 12hr & that’s very slim at best.

    Neither race is on their radar, but it'd be an awesome team up.
