Without manufacture support, what is Prodrive to do?

The FGX has only been on the track for 3 years!

The series has already confirmed that the FGX Falcon (out of production), Altima (no longer on sale in Australia), Volvo S60 and Mercedes E63 (now an outdated shape) are all permitted until 2020.

Honda Accord with twin-turbo V6 NSX power?

The Accord's cousin the Acura TLX made a tasty looking racer: https://www.autoblog.com/2015/06/26/...lx-gt-racecar/

The homologation, and the manufacturer's approval to use it are seperate things.

Like to see these guys run BMW M4's. They were loosely linked with them a few years back and there drivers seem to like driving for them in other races.....

No I meant prodrive, with Frosty and Chaz appearing for BMW in the 12 hour last year and Chaz is going around again, but like many makes, would BMW want to race Opel's?

Honda race cars do look good though must admit.

I thought BMW made it pretty clear they were not interested?

And that was coming from the mothership in Germany.

ďWe have considered staying, going, changing teams, changing cars, you name it, we have put it on the table,íí Emery said on Thursday.

Walkinshaw/Andretti running Nissan

could we see GM(https://www.citroenracing.com/) not Holden look how close the Triple Eight: Project Sandman Tribute Edition look like CitroŽn

My understanding (I stand to be corrected) was that Peugeot Citroen (PSA) had purchased all of GMs Euro brands ie Vauxhall, Opel, in March 2017 meaning in essence that GM had withdrawn from the European Market completely.
