    2014 V8 Supercars - Discussion

    So what's all this then?

    First off: VOLVO!





    Driven by Robert Dahlgren (?) and Scott McLaughlin (!) .... Look pretty, but they don't look like top 10ers yet. Their test times however around the 20th position. Probably enough to beat out the Mercedes team though.

    Perhaps more importantly, Will Davison was punted to the Mercedes team so Chaz Mostert could take over the second FPR car. He's sure to win a race or two, but I'll be more interested in seeing what Davison can do for Erebus.

    Also, my boy Russell Ingall, for some reason, is no longer retiring and is driving for a crappy single car team. I'm not very hopeful. Then again, he was quickest in testing at Sydney. Weird not seeing him in a Supercheap car.




    Season begins next week at Adelaide!

    Schedule changes:

    - They're not coming to COTA this year, but apparently will return in 2015.
    - Eastern Creek is back on the schedule!

    V8 Supercars seems to be shrinking. Only 25 entries this year: 11 Holdens, 6 Fords, 4 Nissans, 2 Mercedes, 2 Ovlovs. At least it's not mostly Holdens again.

    The Clipsal 500 creates an interesting situation for us Adelaideans as it's on during our Festival of Arts and its even more popular Fringe Festival. For one confusing week you get all the hipsters and bogans all congregating on the same area of the parklands in the eastern end of the city. It's quite a site

    I'm picking Volvo to be a dark horse,GRM are no fools and with the polestar backing,I think they may surprise a few bogans this year.Also Nissan are looking a bit better this year.

    That Volvo should just be handed the championship because of sexy looks.

    Well, it certainly is Clipsal 500 week - can tell by the heavy traffic and loud bogans around town.

    Actually I saw the Norton Nissan team's truck coming into town down the freeway - that was pretty cool. Big truck!!
