Perkins lack of pace tends to suggest something is wrong with Dragon Racing VFs.

The Dragon chassis made their debut in 2013... meaning they are 5 seasons old in build. Even if they haven't run every single weekend in that time, that is the spec they are effectively frozen at.

One chassis, presumably Ms Gracie's, is also the Premat-Courtney Phillip Island crunch car from a few years ago.

Is the engine deal over there as good as GRM's WP lease deal for latest spec units, likely similar to their main game cars? Or are the engines older?

And with Mr Klein self funding Mr Perkins' car, and Ms Gracie apparently barely covering the costs of her Caltex unit, its not a wonder there is no development push

Just because it looks shiny with a pretty sticker job over it does not mean it is the best tool in the shed...

Did you read my post above? They are 5 years old in spec

Todd Hazelwood runs a 2016-spec 888 car, a championship winning spec no less. As does Mr Dumbrell.

Mr Perkins is said to be climbing aboard the #98.

Not a bad idea, but only part of the solution...

He had pretty much a livery completed and ready to go on his car for the year. Which was an FGX, but pretty sure a budget shortfall or sponsorship issues stopped it before clipsal
