V8 Supercar Racing - Pretty Bad Ass

Got my ass handed to me by the Flu and was down for the count all weekend - Stumbled upon V8 Supercar Racing in Aus at the Adilaide 500 and fuck me swinging if it is not some tits on a taco type racing - BLOWS AWAY ALMS and reminds me of BTC with the passing and such

Fuck I wanna be rich and have cool toys like that - The on board shots and hearing the Trans and shit was just wild - Like that the cars are all pretty much the same vs ALMS where you have like 4-5 different classes on track at the same time

Anyone else catch this shit?

Very cool
Very expensive

It is crazy how there is like 3 or 4 classes racing all at once. I would hate it, the other cars in the way. If one of them crashes into you from a different class.

Mother Of God the Racing in Kiwi Land was AWESOME - 3 Deep into corners with no bumps or shoves - 2 Car dive in Overtakes - I am hooked on this racing - It is like the old GP 125 days of passes and lead changes...

Pukekohe Park is a WILD circuit - Could not find a clip of the 3 deep from race 4 but this is the best "Quality" Vid

It is some good stuff. Been watching it for the last couple years. Love the sound of those motors.

Can I get a Holden in the US?

Head to Head racing it is the best out there followed by the BTC series - I prefer the V8 series due to the "All The Same" type spec of cars

Only drivers with bigger balls are the WRC guys but that is man & machine vs clock

Pontiac sold them as the g8 just before they tanked a couple years ago. by bringing the Holden here, I thought they were finally starting to do things right.

Did they make a GTO in a (4) Door like the Holden Commodore?

That was the Pontiac branded Holden G8.
