You obviously haven't read the latest reports, they were told by supercars to reduce the power of the new engine and the easy fix was a restrictor plate.

Yes, I did indeed read it.

Just my thoughts. right or wrong
Surely the future is Allen teamed with an established lead driver?

ADP has had his chance to be the future of DJR had hasn’t delivered in four years

So which seats are up for grabs at years end

Fords

19 - Payne (lock)
26 - Stanaway / Anton

17 - Allen
11 - Brodie/Waters

6 - Brodie/Waters
56 - Randle ?

25 - Mostert
2 - wood
No change

3 - Love
7 - Courtney ? Davison ?


Chevs
Maybe static, seats up for grabs

23 - slade ? ADP ?
99 - hazelwood ?


I think Brodie holds the keys, DJR?
Given his Coke relationship, Tickford could be a logical home and I think Cam really needs a fresh start. Perhaps spearheading the DJR revival.


seats on the Chev side look more limited with 888 MSR T18 steady. Premiair could be compelling. Who the fk would want to drive for Betty and Barry now?


Interesting times.

Fairly sure Richie will be at Groves for longer than one season! Can't see AdP or anyone else in there unless he bombs.

Is Brodie even going to come back.

I think we have all moved on from him atm. His silence speaks words.

Don't think he can talk much about his situation so he's silent. I know some say he's going to the US but IMO he'll return and would this year if only he could.

So… if the series starts off at Phillip Island in 2025.. how many V8Supercar pilots will need to jump into any other car available (like Taupo) to see what it’s like, not having used it in what feels like forever…

Its gone on too far now, its laughable.
I understand it might be private but considering his "Previous" Fan Base
I would have thought something should have been said.

Time to move on I guess.

DJR need to look at their engineering side. Note the cars were quick in the wet which is usually more forgiving of a poor handling car.

I love the idea

Goes completely against the “brand” that they’ve pushed for 20 years though doesn’t it?

Perhaps V8Supercar believe the ‘Quinn factor’ will make the joint a sold out event like in Taupo…

I think it would easily sell out with QR as the season opener, but even with the Quinn factor it’s still a pretty standard racetrack and won’t be an “event”

Will it satisfy the corporates as a season opener? Can Tony put lights in?

According to the AA Rev Limiter podcast this week, V8Supercar promoted the Taupo event, despite Mr Quinn’s presence & attendance… wonder if they will do so at ‘Quinnsland Rsceway’?

The expected significant new season new driver/new team/new car brand/new sponsor/new team owners should shake some interest from the great unwashed.. and get some backsides trackside.

Perhaps some thought around the format will improve the show also. Have we given up completely on the idea of running in the reverse direction?

Mr Van Leeuwen on his FCTTN podcast on Speedcafe seems to suggest that Mr Kostecki may have 2 options for 2025, besides staying on at Erebus

A reuniting with ‘The Real Thing’ as title sponsor at PremiAir, with Mr Lacroix & co…

…or indeed a seat replacing Mr Davison at DJR. No word whether ‘Things Go Better With Coke’ at DJR when their Shell branding deal is said to be up for review at the end of this season. Presumably Shell/Viva/OTR etc sell a boatload of yummy brown sugar water thru their fuel purveying locations.

Thought it was a given that Kai Allen was the heir apparent for the #17. Unless a vacancy was to arise in #11. But DJR without Penske is a mid-pack team, so why would Kostecki want to go there.

PremiAir would be the more likely option.
