it may be a visual thing but the superutes just seem oversized on most tracks. they obviously have increased ride height compared to the old utes but it's also like they can barely handle getting around themselves (both in terms of speed and handling). such as on the tight courses where there isn't much room for error, they have fewer chances to make passes work which leads to more follow the leader type racing.

latest Enforcer & the Dude episode


some notes:

* - the Kuhmo V8 Touring Cars will not use the Super3 brand in 2020

* - CAMS didn't allow the Super2 + Super3 combined series

* - Supercars will have a fan forum on ideas for the Gen3 cars

--------

Chaz Mostert was on the latest episode of Mighty Car Mods

Stanaway says he's retiring from racing: https://www.instagram.com/p/B5Pm8VHhu1G ... 06evf2m6hg

He doesn't seem to really know what he wants from one moment to the next, so I guess we'll see.

I could see him trying to come back if a top flight ride was up for grabs, but I do wonder if his back injury from earlier this year had anything to do with his retirement

I think he was just over racing in general, ever since his back injury it's been BS after BS from Gravity management (remember them lol?) screwing him over, Aston Martin in WEC screwing over his car, and then Supercars, which you don't go from being the class of the field during the enduros to being a back runner... something else was up. I bet in some ways it's a big relief to finally retire, he was never truly given the right chance to show his talent.

I suppose I should update my avatar which I've had since he was in Formula Ford 10 years ago lol

Richie is without a doubt talented, you don't get the kind of form he had in '17 otherwise. But something's missing, either maturity or the ability to play the team or sponsor game. I hope he gives himself a chance to figure that out and maybe come back one day.

Also, Mostert confirmed at WAU. https://www.speedcafe.com/2019/11/26/mo ... year-deal/

Brodie Kostecki is also going to be an Erebus co-driver (with Anton de Pasquale) next year now that Youlden has retired. Will Brown will be driving with Reynolds instead.

Holden is unsurprisingly killing off the Commodore road car and indeed their sedan/hatchback line in general. They recently committed to supporting the series until the end of 2021 which is supposed to be the last year for the current regulations. Beyond that, who knows.

Holden is going to be selling the new Corvette so they could run that if the rules changed, or maybe the Camaro (but that's only being imported to Australia by a third party atm). Otherwise it doesn't look very good for the series unless they can get some new manufacturers in or keep GM in the series through non-factory supported efforts.

Not surprised, they just culled the production off for the USA as well - the "ZB" will only continue to be sold in China.

If they stay, my bet is that Holden will use whatever GM runs in NASCAR when the new 2021/2022 car comes around, given all of the tie ups lately between VASC and NASCAR.

The same question is going around on what could be used in NASCAR for 2021+ (or) after 2023. GM apparently stopped all of the development work on the 7th generation Camaro, so either they will continue with the 6th, or the nameplate will be no more after 2022/23. Some rumors have even suggested GM moving the Corvette nameplate away from Chevrolet & making it a standalone brand (like what Dodge did with RAM Trucks and the Viper) with other SUV, sedan and high luxury models under the name plate.

Any bets on how soon till all touring and stock car series inevitably start running compact crossovers?

Goddard & J. Kostecki to share the second Matt Stone Racing entry.

Heimgartner's livery. They've actually managed to make the Mustang look alright:

James Golding is unfortunately out of a main game drive. He will be driving with Winterbottom in the enduros.

Tom Randle has surprisingly left Tickford and moved over to Matt White's team in Super2 where he will drive Bryce Fullwood's championship winning car from 2019. I presume that means he will be elsewhere in the enduros. Broc Feeney (the winner of Super3 this year) is going to be replacing Randle in the Tickford Super2 car.
