When the S60 runs against the E Class, against the Altima, against the Insignia and the Mondeo... you could very well be talking about a race in the USA or Germany or the UK as a class here.. except (hopefully) they will retain V8 noise here...
Yeah, that's where my thoughts were going. With the regs probably sticking to a common chassis that have various bodies and engines, there's no reason there couldn't be different cars competing in various regions.

Odds are the manufacturers want 4 pots, but will it tempt the likes of BMW or Mazda to come back.

BMW stated previously they aren't interested unless they can utilise their in-house designed and constructed DTM/GT3 chassis.

Mazda's interest in recent times was very brief. Sadly, the Mazda6 would've made for an absolutely stunning V8Supercar.

V8 Til 2016 Then...

...seems like anything goes.. in body shape (2 door is allowed), engines (V6 seems popular for some reason..)

What are they doing to such a simple class?

It sounds like like they are going to change the engine to suit holden.

Honestly, I'm going to put that down to the writer of the article.

"*Two door coupe GT style car will be excluded with a stipulation the car must have a production model with a back-seat, stopping a takeover from giants like Porsche and Lamborghini."

I wonder if he has ever seen a Porsche (911), because I don't think that rule would exclude them from the series.

How do Nissan, Volvo and Erebus/AMG feel about this?.........they go to a lot of expense to develop V8 engines only to have them canned after a couple of years.

my understanding is that manufactureers have been engaged in this process, this is the direction they want to go

But that doesn't mean that all manufacturers agree with it.

I'd like to see this one explained a bit more and does that mean next year as in 2015? Could we see the Nissans running the GT1 V8 next year?

Quote:
New regulations for the V8 engines will be introduced from next season with relaxed laws making it easier for manufacturers without a V8 product to enter the sport.

Hey here's an idea... lets run with 1.6L turbocharged V6 engines... they can provide the same performance near enough to the current 5 litre V8s from all over the motoring landscapes.. the category can say the manufacturers should discount the price, but everyone knows they will cost 4 times more than current.

And this time, when there is a car change of such an extent, there will be no golden handshake for a reduction in equity position... lets design it so that the smaller teams who cant afford to play can go broke.

I mean, how fast can you afford to go.. when the fan on the hill or watching on the teev cant tell the difference between them anyway

They'll probably all agree with it until they get beaten, then it will be unfair.

They all agreed SuperTouring was fair, except for the RWD BMW, so they came up with some rules that they agreed were definitely fair. And then Audi turned up...
