Tempted to start the old ford/holden debate again but I resist.

If Ford have dumped a team they're shooting themselves in the face. If theres theres a 2:1 ratio its not gonna look good on fords part.

Sadly they will probaly still dominate though :(

Why would Ford want to shoot themselves in the leg again?

It would seem weird now Vodafone stickers would be on a Commodore.

Will that mean that Holden gets Lowndes back?? Would be freakin awesome if they did!

That's where the money will be.

I wonder if this is related to Ford's 'vision' to get away from V8's, which seems to be continuing with putting a 4-pot in the Falcon, and also evidenced by designing the hugely-successful Territory without the need to accomodate an 8.

Wouldn't surprise me in the least if in five years you can't buy a new V8 Ford in Australasia.

Hmm. 4 cylinder Ford and Holden racing at Bathhurst. Bet that will bring in the crowds. But I suspect being ozzys they won't open it up to other makes of cars..

The GTR was a great car and still is. I went to Hamilton this year and i enjoyed it the way it is. Jappas are ok but you still cannot beat the sound of a v8. (My opinion)

Yeah....don't know how Bathurst will work if Ford perseveres with its plan.

But IMO it's inevitable the way the world is going, and Holden will sit back and watch Ford make a success of the idea, and then copy it. HSV are already building hot 4-pot's, so they won't care. Buggered if I know if they sell many! :D

Bathurst might end up a memory. We survived without Brock. Just...

There is no point worrying about running out of petrol, these machines run on biofuel mix. It smells like formaldehyde (Spelling?) when it burns. V8s forever i say. You can jam your 4 pots and ruie burners. (I actually like all cars whatever, old new, any engine size, i just prefer V8s) :)
