I read about the Chandra Wildcard for Bathurst and one of the versions includes this:
Quote
“We would like to thank Bruce Stewart and the team at WAU for their support in providing one of their chassis and engines to support this entry.”

I assume that there are a lot of parts that can be used from Chandra's two Super 2 DJR Falcons, but wonder about other parts that will need to be purchased to comply with current Super 1 regs. Brakes will be different. I cant really recall the major mechanical variations.

Maybe all the bits that are purchased and not worn out at Bathurst could be used to  to upgrade one of their Falcons to Mustang for 2023 Super 2.

The latest announcement means that Chandra does not need to upgrade and can run his current Falcons next year in Super2.

Potentially reading too much into it but, could we see Coulthard in the Subway car for at least a round or two?

He posted a slightly cryptic photo of his helmet with the caption "next time I put my helmet on it might look different"...

Simply a new helmet? Or a new car?

I wondered the same thing when I saw it too.

It certainly looked cryptic, but here's our biggest clue yet:

Keen to see what James can do. He's been a standout in the S5000 for the past few years.
Xiberras doesn't seem to be mucking around.

He has the best available equipment. He has the enthusiasm.

We need another team competing for podiums.
