I noticed these modest chaps have listed their occupations only as racing car drivers:

Haha I know you are just saying that to get me to lash out at you but it won't work.

I'm reformed. Paul showed me the way.


I've gotta go. Planning a church group retreat. You boys continue to debate this topic and I'll check in again later.

Well as constructive as this comment.

Probably as constructive as responding to a comment and focusing on one word of the comment rather than the whole sentence

We were discussing costs of motorsport, suddenly you (and others) hijacked the commentary because of one word.

Maybe the word i should have used was professional, instead of real, but it doesnt change my post.

So you think that the various Tenthers involved with those cars not just as drivers but mechanics, photographers, PR, caterers, truck drivers etc aren't professional?

Give me a break.

FFS

Gentleman drivers, was that not clear to you.

I think most of us are aware of the difference between the two types of racing.

Great so then, so i will change the one offending word in the quote

I think most of us are aware of the difference between the two types of racing. im hoping you are

Thus the GT3 motors are designed as a control item by the manfacturer which is perfect for gentleman racers. Where as engines in professional motorsport are much more open and allow for development by the individual teams, which is why teams chuck away parts and spend money during development. Which was the conversation we were having at the time

Nothing to do with photgraphers, hairdressers, truck drivers etc.

Hence why Supercar engines all have to have the same max power at given rev range?

So Supercar engines are...controlled?
