The proof of the pudding is in the eating.

Media fluff pieces should not be considered anecdotal evidence that one car will do this, and t'other that...

Indeed, if Commodore retains the unfair advantage it gained after the unprecedented and unwarranted Pukekohe upgrade package (with an outrageous 7 wins out of 9, despite Ford having all the best teams), it will be very upsetting for Ford supporters.

Might need to lay off the crack pipe dude.

If you look up irrational hyperbole in the dictionary, it should link to this post.

I wonder if they'll have review like they did for the commodore last year?

Really?? Team ( singular ) maybe, and that's arguable, but definitely not teams plural. Also, have you only watched the last 2 years? You might want to check out the last 10 years and see who was regularly at the pointy end of the field

It wasn't actually illegal when fitted, but was removed when the rulemakers threatened to ban it, citing it was against the spirit of the rules.

"external ballast" is banned

Oh we just had a REALLY HEAVY exhaust

Not ballast, honest.

Perfectly normal in motor racing. You seemed displeased by DJR Team Penske's entirely acceptable interpretation of the rules.

Recall the "double diffuser" where a slot was not a slot if not visible "when viewed directly from below", and thereby complying to the regulations to the letter.

Hence not technically illegal, but against the spirit of the rules.
Not the first time a loophole has been exploited, won't be the last time.

Curiously, Supercars has a "spirit of the rules" clause whereas Formula One resolutely does not.
