Looks like two door, four pot appliances are go!

Going to make for a really dodgy BoF scenario...

Also moves the whole show closer to DTM / SuperGT Class One and carbon tubs are expected to drop in price.

Look who the journo is - explains a fair bit.

One would be fairly confident the journo didnt even write the questions - the whole thing is from the V8SC pr department.

V8SC should stay a 4-door saloon car series.

If they switch to GT's it will be one of the many GT series in the world.

No need to change the chassis and engine rules, although I can imagine the manufacturers want smaller (turbo) engines.

If allowing 2-door cars like Camaro's or Mustang's in makes the series a GT series, then this has been a GT series since the mid-60s!!

It's being renamed anyway. So even if you believe that V8Supercar = 4 doors only, it's a moot point.

Perhaps in 2017 <Insert New Name Here> will have 2 door and 4 door cars. I have my money on the words 'Touring Car' returning to the series title so I think that could work.

2 door coupes, different engine configurations why not just adopt the rules from someone else and make the start up costs cheaper?

Why build something new when there is plenty of options on the world scene already?

What is the cost difference between GT3 and DTM/JGTC?

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
a mustang and a camaro are not "sports cars" so it fits logically into the touring car scene
