Thank you very much for that Audi link.
(ps, group B quattro's ran PDK twin clutches?!?!... That's only new within the last few years become new car tech)
New PB 58.96 seconds - 19/5/13
He really had to work hard to keep that engine 'on the boil' so to speak.
Even under full braking he is twitching the throttle (not for rev matching) keeping the engine alive, and ready to go...

Seeing as thread is about group B goodness....
There has been talk over the past year about DTM and JGTC having discussions around compatible engine regulations, but so far they haven't been able to agree.
If that did happen, VESA getting out of the two-manufacturer mindset is a good step towards future touring car mecca, with the three series having occasional tie-in races. Unfortunately it's likely to remain a pipe dream for the next few years.

I think the racing will be interesting, i woul much rather have seen the JGTC as promised by the 2 clowns building the bunbury race track but hey.

for those who think that cochrans taxis are fast , carrera cup cars achieve faster lap times at most circuits . formula fords are also faster in corners . my biggest complaint about the v-hates is the pitstops all the time . they are always 'saving' fuel and or tyres so it is not racing . more like weirdly short enduro . even motogp , without pitstops , has become a fuel managment exercise so it is not racing either .
Re the Nissan's & V8 Supercars. For those old enough to remember, isnt this just simply going back to a time where they basically rooted the series, by allowing R31's, R32's, Sierra's etc. They then changed everything back to the basic Aussie type V8 series, that then got the crowds back to watch the racing. Seem's nothing was learnt from before, so they're basically going to fuck up an already great breed of racing.
IMO keep the Aussie taxi's as they are, give the others their own series and let the public decide at the gate.
Go back even further Hoddo and some may even remember when they had 1275cc minis late braking past gt ho falcons mid corner oh wait..... that was good racing because the Aussie cars won...... as you were then
Do you remember the good old days before the internet?
when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.
I am happy that nissan has come to the party, It's more money in the sport, another fan base that could be made (they could make their panels similar to a GTR, a 370Z (both would be stretched somewhat) or even the old maxima...
truth is these cars are not Aussie V8's - they are purpose built racecars with no relation to the road cars except for the panels looking similar (still not even close to the road cars in terms of dimensions)
I'll be glad just to see some life put into the outdated series design. Would be nice tosee the racing more like BTCC, that stuff is down right crazy, but with a bit more eveness in the cars so the racing is close!
"insert witty comment here"
Men have motorcycles while women have mensutral cycles, you can't talk to either while they are on it. The women's also has a sound, it goes nag-na-nag-nag-nag, biiiiiitch-bitch-biiiiiiiitch!
they still need pushrods, right? And a live axle?
Maybe allow nissan to dust off the old R32 GTRs and see the supertaxis get an arse whooping again.
