It will never happen again for a whole lot of reasons including the dumb idea that tight restrictive rules save money. I think SC has proven that idea wrong in capital letters. Tight rules result in tiny incremental development steps for large chunks of money. Anyone who complains about the cost of motor racing should go and buy a big yacht and race that, they will soon change their tune very quickly. I have no time for those who complain about the cost of racing at any level, if you can't afford it get out and do something else.
What era of Sports Sedans are you talking about?The ‘70s professional peak for the class?If so I was there for most of it too.The cars were very unreliable by modern standards as people pushed the engineering limits.There were only ever 3-4 front running cars at any one time and the rest of the field were 3-5 seconds/lap slower.Then someone with real engineering smarts -Frank Gardner-came along,read the rules correctly and built a car that totally dominated and in the end destroyed the class.
I liked the class at the time but rose coloured glasses being worn I think.

Of course rose tinted glasses but the ingenuity and off the wall thinking for some of those cars was first class. As for reliability ALL classes of racing suffered from it but these days the cars are simply engineered better because of improvements in equipment. Sports Sedans or that class of car today would be far more reliable simply due to time and development.

You will need to bring plenty of daddy’s cash for the second T8 seat.

Mr Whincup will be providing mentoring services.

Finished building it is probably the best description, how much had Tom Nailard done before Frank took over?

Third seat? Speedcafe are trying to talk up a mystery 3rd REC bidder... why not a Boost/Supercheap/Red Bull Camaro for 2021?

That would make more sense than putting a rookie in place of Whincup.

If Mostert is off contract, surely he is a shoe-in for the 88?

Is there room for Mr De Borre @ 888?

If they wanted Mostert bad enough, I’d say they’d make room?

Feeney Seems to be in the box seat ATM but too young IMHO.
Andre seems to be looking to sign up with KGR
I was also suggesting Cam Waters but would he leave the Oval as the #1 driver?

Watch this space I guess

You mean Tickford's #1 driver? Mr de Pasquale will probably usurp the #1 Ford fella sooner rather than later
