Looking forward to seeing these cars out on the track again in 2004.

Does anyone know what drivers will be back and of any new entrants?

Also a calender??

Cheers!

I assume the Non Championship round is recognition that this class may be cannon fodder if the schedule runs over time and needs tightening up??

Yeah that could well be the case, will PROCAR be back at Indy this year?

The cars will apparently be in NZ for a meeting the weekend before and not able to be back in time. That's the current calendar anyway. If the IndyCars arent coming, all sorts of horsetrading may happen

There will hopefully be three different series running for this class of car
1. Aussie racers with AVESCO
2. Futureracers with PROCAR
3. Hybrids and any aussie racers, 600 Legends ect who are disgruntled with the financials of the first two will be hopefully racing as a support for another series. If anyone is interested in a cheaper alternative ie about $450 per round as opposed to around the $2,500 to 5,000 per round please contact me. We are having a test day at Wakefield this weekend.
Regards
Guy Wilson

Yeah I had a look at your website, you quote a Aussie Racer at $44,000 inc GST!! Ive been told they are $38,500 inc GST?? And you say the Aussie Racers lap Wakefield Park in 1:24!! when the lap record for them is a 1:06!! What gives?

Quoting the price that I have been told by people enquiring about my pricing and I took the times of a lap off Racetime.
More than happy to be corrected.
At $38,500 it makes the reported $36,000 per year to lease one look unattractive.

Can anyone shed any light on the reasons why Futureracers were happy to let Aussie Racing Cars compete with them, but Aussie Racing Cars would not let any Futureracers race in their series?

There was a catch - Aussie racers and hybrids could race with them if
1. we changed chassis
2. we changed body
3. we changed engine
and finally if we agreed to change all running gear.
This was for parity reasons. We were informed this when we went to enter the procar series.

No one can race with the aussie racers because this would effect someones back pocket.
