Winner is 🤔

So let me get this right
A Ford Mustang (America car) won Australian Bathurst 1000 🤔
I guess the good old days of Aussie Ford vs Holden muscle cars are a thing of the past

Comments

A V8 Supercar chassis with a plastic, distorted body that that vaguely resembles a Mustang won the Bathurst 1000.
If it had been a real Mustang it wouldn't have gone the distance.
I also miss the days of production cars and Group C. The young blokes don't know what they missed.
I don't even bother to watch the Supercars.
I'd rather watch the support races.

Old is good.

my thoughts,
So far removed from the days where the saying of "Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday" was true. I lost all interest years ago.
A lot of respect for the guys who back in the day literally drove their road registered car to Bathurst. Raced, and drove back home the next day

The Mini that won Bathurst was an Australian built Cooper S, a much different car to the English one.

The Jaguar was UK built, as were the Sierras, while the Nissan GTRs were Japanese.

Yes, the Aussie Mini was a much better car.

1275cc engine standard, oil cooler standard, twin tanks standard, wind-up windows, stronger body.

The Aussie BMC engineers made a lot small improvements to the basic car over the original English design, not just to the Cooper S, but the whole Mini range.

Thankyou Dr Terry, I wasn’t aware there were difference. Good to see Aussie ingenuity, rather than just be offered what the Poms served up to us at the time.

I for one think that unfortunately for Scott that he & the team should be stripped of the Bathurst win.
Without a doubt Fabian backed up that field & allowed Scott & Jamie to shoot off in the distance thus making it a two car race & knowing full well that there were four cars behind Fabian that were fueled to the end & they would have jumped Whincup & Scott thus making 5th & 6th at best at the restart.
1 did Fabian cheat by backing up the field? Well yes it certainly appears so!
2, did Scott & team DJR make a personal gain thus making winning the race much easier because of Fabins actions? Most definitely!
