champcarman should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
SDS could run one of her old Indycar liveries? I know BJR are not running anything like an Ozemail car though! Look for some legendary old Touring Car stuff?

Wouldn't a natural fit be to try and create a link between SDS's Nissan and Christine Gibson's factory Nissan EXA turbo she raced in 1983 and 1984? I know Caruso did that livery at Bathurst in 2014, but this link would be a good attention getter

The retro Nissan liveries themselves look great. The history behind those liveries is great to racing fans like us.

Did Supercars when they created this concept, think that teams would front with cars painted in JTCC and SCCA colourschemes, though?

I reckon they should paint it up like a fictional Norman Ross livery....

I see it as a celebration.of motorsport history in general. To place too many limitations on what teams can and can't use, would be to the detriment of the concept.

I agree, and it would be cool to see Penske come out with something in the spirit of their old liveries, but I wonder too how a fair whack of the current fanbase, who are probably not as into the history of the series some others, will resonate with car liveries that had nothing to do with Australian motorsport?

Can we expect BTCC Nissan Primera liveries next year now?

In reality though, if you only concentrated on Australian liveries, the concept is dead in a few years....

A couple of potentials for SDS:





Although, they'll probably blow us all away, with the same livery that's been used all year.

I've noticed, obviously, that this weekend is being advertised as "Retro Round", and the TV ads for Bathurst promote it as "Round Eleven", and the ads for SMP a few weeks ago advertised that meeting as "Round Nine"

Are we officially back to calling them "Rounds" again?
