I am told the end plates are bigger than they will end up being to evaluate different positions of the wing, with wider adjustment than will be homologated. Makes a lot of sense.

More branding space potential on the side of the wing than on the rest of the car

Here is an interesting question.

Scotty Mac is the team mate slayer. Guys who really can drive have looked average and worse next to him, in cars engineered to his preference.

Will anybody else be able to drive the Mustang?

Just think of the brands Tickford can steal off another team to fill those endplates!

I only hope it looks less dreadful with a proper livery. (Plus a less radical rear wing)

I thought the AU was ugly, but this beats the AU hands down in the ugly dept..

2000cc rules on the other hand, would have allowed for wonderful variety as seen in the BTCC... Instead you just got two weak series -- only 10 professional cars in ATCC, and another 5 or 6 professional cars in Super Touring, then privateers making up the rest...


Nissan, BMW, Toyota, Ford and Holden all competing on equal footing! Wouldn't it have been grand. Such a shame.

While it was amusing how the early 5.0L cars handled and the degree of forcefulness in getting the softly sprung sliding, pitching, rolling uncooperative thing around a circuit -- the modern Supercars sadly handle nowhere near as bad, and is not nearly as amusing.

I didn't know V8 at all back then. But the fact is that V8 became more popular than Supertouring.

Surely they have over-done the low-ness of the headlights and grille. I realise there will be a performance advantage, but surely Supercars could step in and require it look a bit a) better and b) more like the production car?

FormulaFox is heading for a stewards' enquiry!
When you get down to it, the problem here is the EXACT same problem that NASCAR has - the chassis and bodywork rules were designed with big sedans in mind, not sporty coupes. The NASCAR Cup Series Chevy SS, Ford Fusion, and Toyota Camry all looked nice, but once Chevy moved to the Camaro, and now Ford to the Mustang, the exact same things came to be an issue.

But I still say the Supercars chassis allowed them to retain more Mustang-esque curves and gave us a better result than what NASCAR gave us. And while it won't solve ALL of the aesthetic oddness, I feel fairly certain the cars proportions will look far less out of whack once the proper wing endplates are fitted.

(an NHRA Pro Stock style hood bulge might improve the look, as well)

That was my first thought. They can the Mustang, yet bang on about how Toyota could be tempted with a very low roofed Supra.

Camaro, GTR, Supra and any other sporty coupe would all suffer the same fate under the current control chassis.
