Think about FPR.

All the money in the world, great driver line-ups, driving the same manufacturer as the champs at SBR, the engineering expertise of Prodrive...

...and it took them three full seasons to become a race-winning force and championship contenders (barring one freak red-flag Philip Island win Craig Lowndes got in 2003).

And I would think that Erebus have even more on their plate currently than the FPR of 2003 did. Give them a year or two.

Nissan scored a top-five today in their second ever event... that's a very commendable effort.

Sorry Zakspeed... You're right. If I remember correctly Apollo 1 caught fire on the launch pad killing all 3 crew memebers...

Sorry Zakspeed, trying not to be negative. Just trying to provide a little light and shade to the Erebus conversation....

No doubt Mrs Kilimenko has done a tremendous job bringing a 4th manufacturer kicking and screaming to the category... and that should be applauded.... But for me the sport is about results and I personally find it facisnating that a team as solid and consistant as SBR has gone to the back of the field so quickly.... Sure you can blame it on "new cars", but the fact is that the Kellys are doing better with their new car than they did with their old one... so results out of a new car are doable....

FPR took over a GSR outfit that was a shambles, the base they were working from was very very low AND there was no such thing as a standard chassis... In 2002 24th in the Championship was all GSR could muster, in 2003 FPR won the third race they started and thurned that 24th in the Championship into a 5th.....

Erebus starts with an owner with significantly more resource (money) than David Richards, the third best team in the game, a chassis at the same level as everyone else and engine that's been regulated to provide a level of parity and two very very good drivers...

Very commendable..... better than any result from the Kellys in 2012?

I think the strength of the Nissan entries is much more noteworthy.

The Kellys seem to have really put a great team together, including some familiar faces now residing at Braeside.

Goat Boy has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I wonder if SVG saw the writing on the wall before he jumped ship from SBR...

Building three spare cars.

Once they sort out the teething problems with the engine, they should be there abouts.

Nothing so far has given me the impression they are going to tool around as back markers for long.

Phone calls to German must be interesting......

Erebus: The engines are not competitive with the Chevrolet and Ford pushrod V8s.

AMG: Wie kann das sein? Wir sind viel weiter fortgeschritten ist, haben wir eine flache Ebene Kurbel und alle unsere Experten hier in Europa haben daran gearbeitet - wir sind die besten.

Erebus: Don't know what any of that means but we need a broader torque spread and a higher torque curve to get us out of corners better - peak power is OK but torque and flexibility is what we are lacking.

AMG: Wie kann das sein? Hier in Deutschland haben wir alles über Rennmotoren wissen, Mercedes in F1 und Sportwagen gewonnen, rasen wir in GT Serie - wir wissen alles über Macht und nachdem der Motor aufheulen schwer, mehr Macht zu bekommen.

Erebus: Don't know what any of that means but please be reminded that our cars weigh 1500 kilos, have narrow tyres and are only allowed to rev to 7,500 rpm so it is very important to deliver good torque to deal with the weight, go easy on the narrow tyres and work within the rev range. Our opposition are very experienced at this and very good, we will need to work hard to match or beat them.

AMG: Wie kann das sein? Ein Rennwagen, 1500 kg und nur revs wiegt um 7500rpm? Das ist Wahnsinn, wäre es nie in Europa zugelassen werden. Nein, wir sind Mercedes, das beste und wir erbringen müssen Motoren unserem Weg, so dass diejenigen, Kangaroo / Amerikaner den richtigen Weg, Dinge zu tun zu lernen und ändern ihre Regeln zu uns passen.

Sorry, had to be done.
