I would have thought that having a Mustang in the current Supercar series was a bit of a waste.
I did read that Ford said that they could only commit to one racing category in Australia and that was V8SC
However blind Freddy could have seen that it would not look anything like a Mustang once it got wrapped around the control chassis
Ford could have developed a Mondeo Supercar which would have been more appropriate fit wise, I daresay the body shape would also lend itself more favourably for aero.
Ford should have considered using V8SC to promote the the whole Ford brand as a supporter of motorsport, now they have locked in a model that doesn't really need help to sell at the expense of the lineup because the days of having a road registerable mass produced car that is close to what's being raced are long gone.

Free to air tv is headed into extinction, for any live sport.  Foxtel too, if they don't watch out.

Paid subscription streaming is the future, like it or not.
The next round of media rights for ALL sports is going to become very different to what we have now.
The likes of Amazon, Netflix, etc have the money nowadays.

People have been predicting the demise of 5 litre Supercars for 26 years....
Until someone comes up with and implements something better, I'm happy to keep watching.

i'm happy to not bother watching sport anymore, versus being forced to pay for it...i used to watch the V8's all the time, now I rarely if ever watch it (Bathurst sort of, but other races on free to air rarely)....i used to watch NRL all the time, last year I watched very little of it and didn't watch a single SOO match....i used to watch Australian cricket matches all the time, now I rarely watch them either.....won't bother me if it's the way of the future the way my sports viewing habits have gone.

What’s with all the negativity?

Some people like it, some don’t. Some people happily fork out for Pay Tv, some don’t.

Each to their own I say.

I'll likely be building a carport for our caravan in the backyard this weekend, so doubt I'll watch it...if I wasn't building the carport then I'd be away camping with mates that are going away

Each to their own. I remember the dark old days of FTA touring cars.  Waiting until 10pm Sunday night to see a 1 hour replay on channel 7.
Then when it became live, every man and his dog sooked up over the amount of ads every ten minutes.

There's more AFL and NRL games shown live on FTA TV, than pre Foxtel deals.

I might watch it for the novelty of the new Mustang, but that will be it as I'd rather watch Motorcycle racing as it's a bit more thrilling than watching single file racing.

Thats the biggest failing with car racing - the real lack of cut and thrust passing - its just follow the leader... Look at Gold Coast race, the 'highlights' on the news that try and make it exciting fail miserably! It almost comes down to someone dropping their rattle gun in the pits to change positions.
example (for car racing people, this is called close racing with passing  ;D)

Obviously never watched a formula ford or formula V (mosquito) at a state round...………...you can throw a tea towel over the front 10 cars and all 10 would lead at some point in their 5 laps.

If you want to see real cut throat racing, go to a state round...…….sports sedans thru to pedal cars, it's all there and 30 to 40 races in a weekend, way better value that the supersnorers………...

Every year we get people with the view that supercars are sh!t and going to slowly die and theres no over taking etc etc which is fine, everyone is entitled to their opinion of course.

But I am one of those that does pay for Fox so I can see the races and I enjoy the racing and find a lot of the races to have plenty of action. So bring it on this weekend, cant wait.

But that neither are the so called "premier" class of racing in Aussie are they that gets all the $$ for some reason!

formula vee slipstreaming and cornering has always been something awesome to watch just a shame the are so fragile when they tap each others wheels damaging steering etc. i reckon they would be pretty $$$ to keep going for a season with spares you'd need to have with you

Awesome race that Bird.

Supercars needs more manufacturers other than Ford, Holden(soon to be Opel) and Nissan, British touring cars is much better racing I reckon.

even though they are only 250s, 20 laps of that is  8) 8) 8)  less than a second covering the first 14 riders and less than a tenth splitting the top five

I reckon if anyone in supertaxi's passed another car they'd get black flagged  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Foxtel coverage has started, Dunlop boys out for practice. Talking with Ash Walsh, they asked what advice did he give the young pommie lass who is debuting in the skies today. He replied try Tim Tams and Vegemite, they're awesome!  :D :cup:

Turns seven and eight already claimed victims, Jordan Boyce and Ash Walsh, ouch!
