You obviously haven't read the latest reports, they were told by supercars to reduce the power of the new engine and the easy fix was a restrictor plate.

Yes, I did indeed read it.

Just my thoughts. right or wrong
Surely the future is Allen teamed with an established lead driver?

ADP has had his chance to be the future of DJR had hasn’t delivered in four years

So which seats are up for grabs at years end

Fords

19 - Payne (lock)
26 - Stanaway / Anton

17 - Allen
11 - Brodie/Waters

6 - Brodie/Waters
56 - Randle ?

25 - Mostert
2 - wood
No change

3 - Love
7 - Courtney ? Davison ?


Chevs
Maybe static, seats up for grabs

23 - slade ? ADP ?
99 - hazelwood ?


I think Brodie holds the keys, DJR?
Given his Coke relationship, Tickford could be a logical home and I think Cam really needs a fresh start. Perhaps spearheading the DJR revival.


seats on the Chev side look more limited with 888 MSR T18 steady. Premiair could be compelling. Who the fk would want to drive for Betty and Barry now?


Interesting times.

Fairly sure Richie will be at Groves for longer than one season! Can't see AdP or anyone else in there unless he bombs.

Is Brodie even going to come back.

I think we have all moved on from him atm. His silence speaks words.

Don't think he can talk much about his situation so he's silent. I know some say he's going to the US but IMO he'll return and would this year if only he could.

So… if the series starts off at Phillip Island in 2025.. how many V8Supercar pilots will need to jump into any other car available (like Taupo) to see what it’s like, not having used it in what feels like forever…

Its gone on too far now, its laughable.
I understand it might be private but considering his "Previous" Fan Base
I would have thought something should have been said.

Time to move on I guess.
