Ok, picture this. Someone with pockets bursting with money comes up to you and asks you to run a V8 Supercar team for him- money is no object.

1. You can have any driver.

2. You can have a ford or a holden.

3. You choose where your team is based, and your test tracks. (Under V8 rules, you may choose two in the state in which you are based.)

Who would you choose? Which marque has more potential??

GO MAD PEOPLE!

TOO EASY!!

DRIVER : Glenn Seton

CAR : Ford, of course ... no question!

MY TEAM would be based either here in the Blue Mountains, where I live, or maybe Penrith ... it's close enough to home AND all the services I may need!

I would like for my test tracks to be Bathurst and Oran Park... if Bathurst is an actually possibility ... otherwise Oran Park and Eastern Creek ...

ahhhhh, that would be cool as!! when is this gonna happen, Crash Test??

Good one Crash, but it depends on a few things - If the owner wants to win - nothing else:

Car : Ford

Driver 1 : Craig Lowndes

Driver 2 : Paul Radisich

Driver 3 : Mark Skaiff

I know, 3 drivers - but you said unlimited funds

If it was just a case of picking driver's I liked:

Car 1 : Peter Brock - Holden (think of the merchandising)

Car 2 : Jim Richards - Holden

Car 3 : Craig Lownes - Ford

Car 4 : John Bowe - Ford

and if I can have one more : Possom Bourne - WRX (to cover the wet races) - Its fantasy is'nt it

Must base all teams here in Vic - Phillip Island & Winton

Piece of Cake.

I'd get Nissan to build a V8 Skyline and run that.

Drivers;
Paul Radisich
Craig Lowndes
James Thompson
Matt Neal

and for the enduros i'd get Tommi Makinen, Mika Hakkinen, Kimi Raikkonen and David Coulthard.

I'd run the team in Blacktown, about 10 mins from my place.

And i'd test @ Eastern Creek, and Bathurst.

ohh very hard.


I would choose a Holden but with a Ford as a back up car just incase they start to win races on a regular basis

drivers

1. Martin Brundle (gotta be good in a V8)
2.Craig Lowndes (simply the best)


Base the team here in my home town of Albuey ..(reasonably central) test tracks would be Winton and Phillip Island..winton for handling PI for high speed handling.

for the enduro's i would put Brundle and Lowndes in one car and get young guy's from F holden like....Rick kelly and Christian Murchison to run the other car to gain experience.

and if brundle wont drive the car the choice would be mark Webber

colour scheme ...would be flurecent green ..to blind other drivers ..hehehe.

and big kev (himself) would be my transporter

Money no object? Well, gimme Juan Pablo Montoya and Craig Lowndes - just to show where Clowndes ranks in the scheme of things again. Kinda like F3000, 1997 vintage!!

Colour scheme (most important thing first)
Dark metalic purple, with fluro orange trim.

Car
One of those new Jaguars (not F1 Jag)...Barry Jameson is building one for sport sedans...it'll look sweet

Drivers
Clowndes
Wakefield

Base
QLD- at Darlington Park (what a track!!) and use either QR or Lakeside, or failing that, build my own test track.

Endurance Pairings
Clowndes/Wakefield (win Bathurst by 25 laps)
Brock/Johnson (seniors, some how use time travel to bring them back from 1984)

Good luck getting Amaroo back cause i think it's an old folks home now.

As 4 Johnson and Brock driving together, i don't think u'll get Johnson cause he'll be too busy running DJR, and i heard that Brock is starting a team as well
