I fondly recall the days of the cosworth dfv powered race cars beating the more powerful turbo engines ones in F1. And the less powerful M3's & 635's outperforming their more powerful opposition. I heard the redbull plane competition referred to as motorsport the day. I reckon there wings are more important than their engines. And then there was the ground effect F1 era.

Well. Not too many cars can move forward with wings and no motor.

But anyway. I can barely remember Greg Swann's tenure as CAMS CEO.

Tailem Bend is brilliant track for bikes. Todays SuperSport 300 race was the best race I've seen today, and that includes today's race at Phillip Island.

Well said, Sir. Award yourself a prize for your deep thinking and your humility - and "thank you" to CP for bumping this thread so I got to read journeyman's wise words.

Look man. You can get upset over what I type, or you can make a counter point. I don't hide my opinion. Until you do, I'll just sit here passively at my desk.

edit:

Idk where the TCR thread is. When I read the complaining over the current state of v8s, it just highlights the need for 2lt touring cars. A 2l class following up from super touring would've broken up the endless gimmick and monotony of v8s, which have gone past their used by date 15 years ago.






EDIT:

I'm not that big into the aesthetics of racing cars anymore. Like most things about motorsport, everything's gone downhill since the mid-90s. NOwadays, desiners try too hard to make 'em look "mean", and I rool my eyes when others get excited by it. However these TA2 cars really catch my eye.


These type of racing cars are obviously a caricature of the actual model. But in TA2, it doesn't look unnecessary. The bodies are enhanced, but they look clean. I like them.
