Frosty is saying he gets to drive the Camaro after qualifying. So should get some on track action.
Paddles are better than taking you hand off.
Please don't do it. Just leave the stick in there.
Yeah it's bit of insult to have the American flag on the car. Hopefully after this weekend we won't see that livery whilst testing throughout next year and when there doing demo runs too.Yeah, that was odd(even though I don’t have Foxtel any longer). My wife was a bit annoyed with the USA flag on the bonnet. Could have used the Aussie flag for sure. I mean, not just where the series is based, but the cars are right hand drive.
You can see that flag as a link to the Corvette teams that run IMSA & LeMans. Chevy has a bigger problem on their hands. The street Camaro won't be on sale for another 3 years or so. Then what will GM run? NASCAR will run into the same problem.Yeah, that was odd(even though I don’t have Foxtel any longer). My wife was a bit annoyed with the USA flag on the bonnet.

It’s funny because I’ve seen that motif on thisYou can see that flag as a link to the Corvette teams that run IMSA & LeMans. Chevy has a bigger problem on their hands. The street Camaro won't be on sale for another 3 years or so. Then what will GM run? NASCAR will run into the same problem.
On a more direct note, from the video of the cars on the mountain, either the Camaro is quieter or the driver wasn't giving it the beans. The Mustang sounded loud & raucous, like a racecar should.
It was as @R1600Turbo said, the Camaro was running a muffler while the Mustang wasn't, but why would only one of the two cars running mufflers make the locals happy? They're at the same track.That would explain things. Likely having to use mufflers to make the locals happy.
Funny you posted that because today the Daily Telegraph is reporting that the deal between WAU and Jaguar is apparently back on.
Jaguar is on the verge of making a shock return to Australian Racing with the British racing royalty negotiating to put a V8-F Type on the Supercars grid in 2023.
In a shock move given Kia and Toyota were considered the most likely manufacturers to join Ford and General Motors in the future, the famous British manufacturer is set to reunite with Walkinshaw Andretti United (WAU) – the current day version of the racing team that took them to Bathurst 1000 glory in 1985.
The Daily Telegraph can reveal that Jaguar has already committed to a hand shake deal with WAU and would have already made their intent to reconquer Australia official had it not been for the Covid outbreak.
While the international crisis stalled the deal, sources close to the team claim Jaguar are ready to recommit following the successful unveiling of the Gen 3 Supercars program at Mount Panorama on Friday.
The revelation means that the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro could be racing an F-Type Jaguar in a move that would turn an all-American fight into a global race war.
It will come as no surprise that Walkinshaw Andretti United will be the team to snare Jaguar given Tom Walkinshaw won the British giant a Bathurst 1000 title in 1985.
Walkinshaw almost single-handedly made Jaguar a touring car force in the 1980s after he took the V12 X-JS from the street and turned it into a race conquering touring car.
Now running Walkinshaw Andretti United (WAU), Tom’s son Ryan could follow in his father’s footsteps by turning the V8 Jaguar F-Type into an Australian Supercar.
Currently driving the soon to be redundant Holden Commodore, Ryan would not comment on Jaguar when contacted by The Daily Telegraph.
“We have always been honest and open that we are looking at our options,” Ryan said.
“We haven’t committed to the Camaro even though it looks like an exciting product. We have made no commitment to GM or Ford.”
A $300,000 plus car, a road going F-Type already produces as much power as a V8 Supercar.
