    I wonder how long Holden will put money into the sport given it's selling 7 Commodores a month atm.

        Well the ZB would still be selling more than the Falcon and Altima did.

            Seriously, WTF is with the super ute shit. The dumbing down of Australian motor racing is complete.

              Market relevance.

              Everyone wanted it, and then they all went "oh fuck, no not this!".

                    They should of not fucked around with a half chassis and just make the cunts a proper silhouette series. No cunts give a fuck about road going shit.

                      They're still mostly road cars.

                      Just have new pick-up points added to the chassis for the control suspension.

                            I've ranted on how this is killing the sport. However, put on your tin foil beanies for this conspiracy theory.

                            ... I do believe it wasn't intended to be a Foxtel only coverage when the contract was signed. I think Fox bought Ten and shoved it into the "We want these only on pay per view" ( AKA - Similar to how they killed One HD as being a sport only channel) If I was a sponsor I'd be mega pissed.

                            Back on topic. I'd like to see Kia throw a couple of chassis at a team and give them their Genesis V8 or the V8 in the US Kia's. Alos anyone know when the Space/King Cab ute/girlytruck series starts?

                              The girlytruck series has already started? Has been running this year, was at Clipsal and was at Winton this round.

                                Re: the coverage, what CH10 shows, is the package they paid for. i.e. fuck-all. They were the only FTA network to lob a bid in for the rights, and low-balled it. Therefore Supercars gives them what they paid for in material, which is the highlights package, and a couple of live events.

                                If you want to whinge to someone, make sure it's Ch10 for being broke tightarses.

                                KIA have stated that they want to be involved, but they don't want to spend any money. Which basically translates to if someone wnats to run KIA Stingers, they're not going to stop them from doing so (under the current rules, the manufacturer needs to give approval to the teams and catagory, before the model can be raced).
