Silly Season 2023 "Super 2 and 3"
« on: July 04, 2022, 09:22:29 PM »
The new rules have been posted.

Quote
Super2 will be an all-in of the Holden ZB Commodore, Gen2-spec Ford Mustang, VF Commodore, FGX Falcon, and Nissan Altima; the Mercedes E63 AMG and Volvo S60 also remain eligible, not that any have ever been seen in the series.

Furthermore, the Super3 class will remain, for Project Blueprint-spec VE Commodores and FG Falcons.

Quote
Consistent with Burgess’s comments, Super2 teams faced two key issues with respect to a hard changeover to Gen2.

Firstly, the market is tight.

Speedcafe.com understands that many cars which are currently on the race track in VCS (code for the Supercars Championship) have already been sold to collectors and are in fact being leased back from their new owners.

A second reason, perhaps related to the first, is that the asking price for Gen2 cars is believed to still be in the region of several hundred thousand dollars each, a figure which would stretch Super2 teams, especially those which field multiple cars.

This will please 2022 Super 2 teams as they do not need to spend big bucks on an upgrade to 2022 Super 1 cars.

But the current Super 1 cars are superior to the previous Super 1 cars (current Super 2) and some teams will be worried about some sort of performance equalisation.
