Hang on... You said it was cheaper to run a SARS ute than a 2K cup car... So what are the figures?? Lets have an honest comparison as flying duck seems to know what it costs for a 2k Cup car...

Also interested to know if there is any franchise fee payable to compete in the series and/or if they have the crazy rule that prevents you from using the vehicle you purchased when & where you want to use it

Also intrigued what the "long useful life after racing" involves? As they don't seem to be Rego'd & with their lack of pace I sure as hell can't see them being snapped up to use in other Series' or as club racers after SARS is gone.

Lastly re: the 3hr DNF's, thx for clarifying, all i was going off was the Mylaps results which showed them as DNF's in the 3hr race.
