The one that everyone forgets is my favourite of all, purely because it was built to Supertouring regs and actually competed. The Peugeot 806

It's funny, when Saito debuted his 1000hp Chaser in D1 there wasn't half as big a power war as there has been in FD these past few years. I guess it's just the way things are done in the respective countries. In Japan the emphasis seems to be on mastering car control, whereas in the US the attitude seems to be 'I can't compete with him unless my car is on a par'. Which means everyone is now chasing ridiculous power figures because they feel like they'll get thrashed with a lower power car.
In reality, the only reason people get beaten by high power cars is the initial drag race kills any chance of a decent chase run. Therefore, I think the answer to capping power levels is to stop the drag racing aspect of the sport that I dislike so much.

There's plenty of good fabrication work in this car but why does he still use a dash dodger rollcage? Seems to be a lack of attention to detail.

Oh man, that Rover is incredible. You see the odd modified MG ZT in the UK but I've never seen a Rover done in such a way, awesome!

I'm sure the 288 was never destined for rally. If I'm not mistaken it was built for Group B road racing, much the same as the 959/961 Porsche?

@ComJive Incorrect, salt is used because it lowers the freezing point of water, keeping it liquid until past -5°C.

@KiwiMotoring Because they're separating the saloon/estate and the coupe into the 3 series and 4 series, so we'll likely have 420i, 425d, 430, 435, M4, etc. in the coupe range.

I'd really like to know where the additional 2-300kg have been added over the original Group C car. The only things I can see that would add a lot of extra weight are the non-carbon fibre bodywork and turbos and their ancillaries, but a fair amount of that increase will be negated by the Audi block being lighter. I'm stumped.

As much as I hate seeing money find it's way to grids instead of talent, as long as there are drivers with money lining up, teams will put them in their cars. Increasing costs will always dictate this, so the only other alternative, in F1 at least, is a budget cap, and we all know how controversial that idea is.

Unless he's planning on taking it to Pikes Peak and doing some serious runs, that spoiler is too much. I love the banana wings, inspired by GT2 993's, but this is over the top if you ask me. And that's judging it against other RWB cars haha.

He went for every gap he saw, but, as Martin Brundle said, he rolled the dice once too many times. Without him the race would've been a pretty boring procession, the only other memorable overtakes were Kimi's at the end.

@MatthewScott1 We have loads of cool and interesting cars, Cortina's immediately spring to mind. And we've had plenty of 'muscle' cars too. Capris, SD1's, Aston Martin V8/Virage, even the XJ-C.

I really think that the Euro and US GT series could learn a lot from Super GT. Instead of GT1 cars just being V8 versions of GT3 cars, I'd love to GT500 style cars racing there. Still recognisable as road cars, but a step above, like GT1 was back in the late 90's.

Hahaha, I guess that means no more BDC coverage on here then? What's your reason for having this 'no replicas' policy? Will that spread to replica race cars and unofficial kit cars? Cars with homemade Louis Vuitton or Bride interiors?

How could you use the word stance in an article like this?! Lol. Also, it's no surprise that that Mustang goes faster than Kremer 935s nowadays, seeing as an original Kremer is worth several times what that Mustang is worth. The same reason that Arrows win all the historic F1 races whilst McLarens and Ferraris are nowhere to be seen.

@Mark Reyes Incorrect lol. 2 seconds is a big gain for one team, I agree. There was a 5.2 second difference between first and last in F1 qualifying at the Hungaroring and that's in one of the strictest formulae in motorsport. 2 seconds gain for all that aero seems very, very disappointing over what looks to be pretty basic, tried and tested aero on the Tilton Interiors Evo.
