Repco Supercars Championship / Re: WAU to race Mustangs
« on: May 19, 2022, 09:01:36 PM »
Would they be in the mind to do more Ford conversions ala what they're doing with the Silverado? Maybe even an eye as the Ford homologation team given there's now a Penske sized hole in the market.

With the Ford announcement that they're bringing the F150 here next year and converting them to RHD and selling through dealers, my money is on Walkinshaw to be the partner in this. Nice tie in, get Ford factory support plus a deal to convert F150s
Walkinshaw will have nothing to do with F150 conversion.  "The F-150 will be remanufactured to right-hand drive by RMA Automotive at a facility in Mickleham, Victoria."

Anyway, you can take Percat and the WAU sponsorship package with you to Ford. We’ll happily keep SVG and Feeny, Brown and Kostecki.
Maybe WAU saw an oppurtuntiy to make some money by using a vehicle that is currently available for sale in Australia and is recognisble by the Australian puplic. The Camoro(which wouldn't be recognisable by most of the Australian general public) is about to become extinct in the car world and is from a company that is is virtually exticnt in Australia.  It appears the only people who(or will be crying} are the GM fan boys who look backwards and not forward like WAU.

Maybe the Camaro might not be economic way to go.  It is a well known fact that at this stage the Camaro will be dropped by GM in 2024.  So the Camaro as a racecar might be around for 2, possibly 3 years.  So whats around after that, at least the Mustang, as a consumer available vehicle, will be around for years to come.

How many of the Supercar drivers are anti vaxxers, I think we are about to find out.

So the lastest date is early December.  Everyone with rose coloured glasses are saying NSW  lockdowns will be finished and sports events can have increased capacity with 80% vaccination rate, probably still with a thousand or two cases daily.  Bathurst will getting ready for a flood of covid cases from when all those spectators flood in from Sydney.  Qld will probably still have it's border locked down solid  with only the most essential people allowed in. Considering the best teams and some others come from Qld, will these teams want to cross the border into NSW.  If they do, and no one in motor racing team could be classed as an essential worker, they will have have to stay in NSW, maybe for a long time, which includes being there over Christmas away from their families, but the show must go on.

Proof of the covid vacinations to attend race events?    SPC and Qantas to make covid vaccinations compulsory to work for them, now event organisers are doing the same. A stert of things to come across Australia for 2022.

Why is the focus on vaxinations and lockdowns. NSW will still be a red zone in November and Qld and Vic will still block movement out of NSW into these states without quarintining.  What team will go to NSW knowingly well they will have to be in hotel quarintine(at $3000 per person for 2 weeks when they move to other states.  Remember these teams are not football teams with all their privileges.

With covid, lockdowns, shut borders and this  https://www.speedcafe.com/2021/08/10/challenge-bathurst-adamant-bathurst-1000-cannot-run-on-new-date/ I think it might end up in the too hard basket for the supercars.

It doesn't matter how you look at NSW will be locked at of the rest of Australia to well after christmas unless they (and the rest of the states as well)can get  up to 80% vaccination rates. Relistically that won't happen due to the number of people having their right not to vaccinate.  The trouble is, do the interstate teams want to go to Bathurst?  If they did, they then could travel freely to the next event in NSW.  Now for every team to be able go to QLD for the last event it will be impossible.  The transporters might be able to clear the borders with the right paperwork, but every member of every team will need to quarintine at a quarintine hotel for $3000 per week per person. Alot of money for the teams to fork out.  Then onced quarintine is finished they can go to Surfers, but sadly to late as the race date was the previous weekend.

Maybe they should just allow people in from Green zones as a way of knocking the heads together of Gvmts
If NSW is still a red zone(which it will be)  why would someone from a green zone want to go there as on their return to the green zone they would need to isolate at a quarantine hotel at their expense for 2 weeks.

Who really believes this will happen with spectators(maybe NSW residents who are not in lockdown).   In the news today the NSW government said there could be rolling lockdowns into 2022.  If this is the case no state will remove the red zone status of NSW until there are no more lockdowns, and even then there needs to be no community cases for for 4 weeks.  The only way interstate visitors will be there are those who are wiling to pay for 2 weeks quarantine on their return.

If they don't hurray up and get the Gen3 on the track GM supports will be supporting a vehicle that is memory sooner than they thought.
 
From motor1.com
Meanwhile, news from the Mustang's long-time rival is even worse. The Chevrolet Camaro logged just 2,792 sales for the same period, representing a deathly 58.2-percent drop compared to last year. To make that live for you, Ford nearly sold as many Mustangs in June alone as Chevy sold Camaros through the entire spring season. Yes, there are rumors that GM will keep the Camaro around until 2026, but sales numbers dwindle with every report that comes out and you know GM executives are aware of it.
