one five five should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
How about this for a wacky thought.

The Muscle Car Masters need rejuvenating according to some on here

The Virgin Australia Supercars Championship round at Sydney Motorsport Park has struggled for a crowd for over ten years.

Why not combine the two of them?

Run the event in it's current August date. Make is the Supercars Heritage event.

Have a Supercars race on Saturday arvo and Sunday arvo, bring back the Touring Car Masters, and have Group C/A, Group Na/b/c, Heritage Hot Laps, Master Blasts etc.. through the rest of the day as the support races. You can even keep the Production Car enduro, maybe run it just on the Saturday night though.

Supercars and the ARDC would have to work together and co-promote though....is that possible?

I'd be for the event, but I think you have far too many classes to get through.

Prior form isn't promising.

Can you see Supercars agreeing to this and thereby admitting they need us to help them survive and not look desperate? Also all other categories that are used to high profile positioning at MCM would now be kicked to the back of Bourke which wouldn't make many of us very happy as we know Historic racing is healthier than Supercars is at the moment. Some might say that Supercars should almost be the support category not the rest of us.

Should happen in the same year as Supercars become part of the card at Phillip Island Historics helping them draw a crowd at another circuit where numbers at Supercar rounds have been on the low side for most of the past 20 years.
The big losers out of this would be the competitors in other classes at MCM and people who might want 2 meetings to attend.

Careful, you will be locked up as radical, and designated as a rebel, and will come under the watch list of ppl against Supercars
The Cyber police will trace you and you will be banned from attending motorsport.

But agree with you
