    That's more of a proper Mustang shape isn't it, instead of the stretched and squeezed version of today?

    I actually thought we'd see the new shape Mustang and the Camaro this year, but from what i've seen they are still using last years cars.

    Yeah that's correct.

    COVID was a thing for a while and development was pushed off-track, then they actually had a silly idea of introducing them part way through this year, but the ownership of Supercars changed in the off season and more sensible heads prevailed and they will be introduced starting next year.

    Sometimes V8 Aussie fans really look like nascar follower clowns.
    Well said by Jim Richards.

    Yeah that's a classic moment! I remember watching as a 10 year old.

    Also found out Dick Johnson was actually... a dick, I suppose.
    (And someone not knowing motorsport rules, as well).

    The reason for that famous quote from Jim, was due to him learning his good friend Denny Hulme had died during the race, he only found out just before going onto the podium. So you could imagine the emotions he was feeling, even without dealing with the bogans.

    Yeah that was a significant race. The crowd was booing because they don’t understand red flag rules and we’re unhappy about Godzilla taking the win again, while Richards was dealing with a personal loss.

    It was also the final Group A touring car race at Bathurst, because the next year the Australian Touring Car Championship banned the turbos and switched to new Group 3A rules for V8s (the rest is history there), 2.0 L touring cars and normally aspirated 2WD cars from the Group A category.

    Yes, I already got all the info about it.
    Fascinating. Yeah, bogans may be ignorant of rules, but I guess Dick Johnson wanted to stir trouble with his words.
    Ironically enough before Godzilla DJ himself was dominating with a favourable set of rules, I gathered.
