Are you unfamiliar of the concept of class racing?, its to promote close racing, support and promote the local industry,keep costs down and enhance the spectacle. Not only does it make excellent sense but its a widespread and widely supported concept that is used in motor sport worldwide.

Would you also be ignorant enough to dismiss the European Touring car series because they don't allow Ferries?

Well the reason for the racing is like yacht racing of the same class. The Fords and Holdens run same diff and gearbox, lots of rules make for close racing.
Sure some over powered light weight sports car would beat the V8s. paul and gary and enough others that would fit in a phone box would watch it but no one else.
I love Fords I tell my kids its ok to throw rocks at Commodores lol.

BMW were there for a while,they beat the pants off the usual cars,so they banned them.

SUCK IT! :clap

WOO!!! Oh yeah!! (Insert mental yello ('http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Q7FFjUpVLg') here)

Best those heap-o-**** fords could muster was fifth, next one was ninth... so, that makes two in the top ten.

A superior vehicle? I think not.

BTW, this is my future Holden (rebadged as a vaux, but it's just so cool even that doesn't hurt it); http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TPHXVtblWw

Favourite lines; the exhaust sounds like someone torturing a lion through stadium speakers; it does 75mph in first gear, which means that the other gears are just there to decide how angry the police are going to be with you; it doesn't rewrite the rulebook, it just does a dirty big burnout on it.

Yes I have been watching it on TV here ever since it was first shown. Don't think I have missed a race. Before that use to read about it in the Aussie car magazine called Wheels and wondered what all the fuss was about.
