2023 RSC Silly Season

It will come along soon enough... the move to Gen3 will provide movement... in pilots, in engineering resource, in team continuity, in manufacturer swaps potentially... a place to plonk the playtime..

Any teams going to switch from Ford to Chevy? Or are any Holden teams going to choose Ford over Chevy?

Gen3 seems to have been designed specifically around getting the Camaro in and making sure the Mustang looks like a Mustang. Seamer also said only V8s are welcome going forward.

I can’t imagine many manufacturers will be interested because of the “V8 only” rule alone.

It seems like Gen3 was only ever just a cart to get a Camaro in no matter what, even the cost cuts lost out (if you believe the talk)

Development costs will go down, but the parts costings compared to now, are a bit of an unknown. Are the teams making their own, to the prescribed specs, or are they buying them in?

Anything that has been tendered, is to be built to a spec for the teams to buy.

I don't think development budgets will get swiped out completely...other than some of the bespoke parts some of teams might have been making.

Plus sooner or later someone will find part of the car that is free and able to be developed...

It will be interesting in the years to come when both SC and NASCAR work out that when V8's bite the dust and are no longer relevant in the market place both series will have a major problem. Saying "never" nearly always bites you back, the fact that the series is built around two cars one of which seems to have a short term expiry date will present problems in the not too distant future. I know that the motors are not production based but if the series becomes irrelevant due to the equipment used it will die a slow death. Some would say that slow death has already started, I am not sure about that but statements such as Seamer is spouting might accelerate its demise, talk about opening his mouth to change feet!!

Let's hear the business case for that. Just because Toyota US can make it work there does not translate to making it work here. The market for V8 cars in Oz is dead apart from a few bespoke imports from the US and the very few from Europe which are rapidly disappearing.
