leothedrummer should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
On that sort of note, I wonder how cheaply you could build something to a comparable pace (/reliability?) as a current Supercar if you didn't have the restrictions on weight, capacity, aero, tyre, etc. What would the MARC guys come up with, for example?

The Bathurst 6 Hour, as is, is anything but a fair comparison.

If the ATCC/Supercars Championship changed the rules to the current Australian Production Car regulations next year and Triple 8 rocked up to the Adelaide 500 with a bunch of ZB Commodore's driven by Lowndes, SVG and Whincup, if DJR Team Penske rocked up with Mustangs/Focus' driven by Mclaughlin, Mostert & Winterbottom, if BJR turned up with the currently competitive BMW's etc etc... do you think the "Clipsal" crowd would be much smaller?

You won't get a proper answer until that happens. A 6hr race at Bathurst for a completely seperate racing series is no guide whatsoever

Well, that is a MARC car, and they are circa $250k

Actually thought they were a bit cheaper than that. But anyway, forgot them for a minute. Part I'm actually interested in is realistically speaking, is there ac car that can be built at current Supercars pace for less money?

Pace yes, safety, longevity and serviceability questionable.

NZV8s are cheaper, not that it has done them any good.

UNDER THE SKIN: MARC FORD FOCUS

suggest $230,000 a year ago, but adding GST would be that $250K Mark

MARC cars aren't that far off Supercar speed...and they are built for enduro racing.

I think Supercars aren't quick enough for what they cost in comparison to MARC cars.

Well truthfully not much is. a new ferrari GT3 is about 4seconds quicker (in enduro trim) and triple the price. much more expensive to run as well.

something to be said for the MARC formula. v8 hot hatches?
