Great videos Roger really enjoyed them plus I learnt heaps, now I'll just have to watch them again to remember all that stuff.

 

I wonder if it all applies on a smaller scale for our 1:32 versions, except of course the rear wing in my case as they tend to all disappear eventually. :D


Cheers

 

Phil

The key factors are........

Racing every 2 weeks.

At least 4 cars per team [nascar have over 10 per team]

Halved car build costs.

Ford and Holden have a small % of car sales in OZ now.

Extremely similar cars built the same. [Most cars now are built by about 2 builders]

 

 

Why do they need [more] manufacturers ?

As long as the grid is full, I don't get it.

 

 

Incidentally, they have not addressed to engine [costs] as yet.

Currently a 2 car team [would have at least] have 7 engines. 2 in cars 2 in trucks 2 in rebuild and 1 on dyno and many more parts.

A huge chunk of dough.
