NZV8's 2011/12

First round in a few weeks, looks like we have a list of drivers on the NZV8 website now: http://www.nzv8s.co.nz/pages/7/drivers.htm

14 drivers currently sitting there, anyone know if this is likely to be the final number? Andrew Anderson isn't on the site, but the ITM Racing FB page indicates they are ready to go?

That list looks a bit dull to me with less than a handful of really good drivers. The Swift field could be even bigger.

considering how many have jumped ship.. anything over 16 will be a bonus.

from facebook..

The final programme close off is next Wednesday, and the driver list will be put on the website sometime on Thursday. It does include a really competitive lineup!

noticed Matt Lockwood's name is missing from the list.. so it's probably not completed.

will anyone get near this.. in the new Sports GT class?



Carl Hansen’s very quick TVR Tucson has undergone a complete rebuild and upgrade during the past two seasons while it has not been racing. The TVR will be a top competitor in the new Sports GT category during the summer NZ Championship series.

The almost legendary 351ci Rover V8 has been replaced by a 401 cu in custom-built Ford V8 which should produce around 800 hp and will drive through a six-speed Hollinger gearbox, and also have new brakes, suspension parts etc.

As if it was not fast enough already! Oh well, you need to keep moving forward otherwise you will go backward

Interesting, doesn't look half bad either! Still running a carburettor I see, does anyone know the engine spec. for this new car? Same as the old ones, or an update?
I understand the teams running Holden engines were having issues getting suitable blocks, as they have been out of production for many years. And NZV8's insisting on the "DNA" remaining true, so that means Ford and Holden (or maybe GM?) engines one would think?

With even Nascar moving to injection next year (since running carbs from 1949!) there can't be too many new classes of Motorsport persisting with this old technology.

i'm not sure if a decision has been made about what engines the new cars will run. so i'll take a punt and saying they're using a current BNTV8 spec engine.. so they can test the new chassis.
