Thanks for proving my point. The fact that there would racing and it would be far cheaper with true engine parity will not be seen by fans as a plus. I bet that if it was the other way around, moving from electric to new fangled IC motors with lots of noise the reaction would be the same....why do we have to have all that noise. Electric racing cars might have saved Oran Park & Amaroo, we will never know but just maybe it might have.

I donít see the need to have electric power. Just keep the current engines or have something similar which are cost effective to build. As for the noise, call me old fashioned, but that for me is still part of the attraction of motorsport. Hearing an racing engine either in person or onboard and it does leave an impression, especially the hairs on the back of the neck. Yes we have lost a few tracks to housing and itís unfortunate, but then a new track is usually built not long after

I'm not trying to knock, or attack. The fact that image exists (amongst many) is because of the resistance to change that exists in many areas of life.
A lot of people push back at change, whether that is in the workplace, technology, leisure, sport etc....
Why do we do that? One reason is fear. Another is the reluctance to move from what we are comfortable with.

Underlying this reaction is quite often the fact that we simply don't know what the alternative is like. We have no experience to draw on, so no real comprehension of how good or bad it may be compared to what we already know.

Quite often, those resistant to a change are called 'dinosaurs'. This is typically from someone who hasn't experienced the previous version(s) of the subject matter, so don't have the prior comfort of understanding the pros and cons.

This is seen across a lot of threads in this forum currently.

But, change is good. Moving to something new allows you to learn from, and eliminate the weaknesses of what went in the past. Everything we like about what we have/had, was at some time a change. That change was probably resisted with just as much passion.

The worst thing we can do (IMO) is to accept what is now as being what will survive. If we like what works in 2020, it will inevitably start to lose its appeal over time for others, as things around it move on.

It always strikes me as somewhat odd that a lot of people think that what they are used to will continue indefinitely and never change. Does anyone here think that SC will be the same in 50 years? of course it won't be and won't even exist.

I am entirely used to the lower-pitched sound of the hybrid turbo V6s in Formula One, though watching any old V10 or V8 races remains a shock to the system... I had forgotten they used to sound like that!

In that case, should Supercars be an anachronistic retro series reliving the essence of the 1960's and 1970's and milking that for all it's worth, until such time as the (typically older) fanbase dies off?

To keep Holden fans happy should the ZB Commodore be replaced by the VZ Monaro -- with a battle of retro muscle cars, South Australia's finest Monaro (albeit designed in Victoria) vs Michigan's finest Mustang.
