Australian Classic Cars mag article
I recently read an interesting article in the current Aust Classic Car mag on the possible introduction of racing cars up to 1990 into historic racing, following Group A becoming historic (up to 1992) which I just thought of again with the discussion of recent V8 Supercars vs early Grp A cars in the TCC.
Basically the point was the cars post 1984 Group R are in no-man's land, not competitive in normal competition but not eligible for historic - yet if introduced into historic competition they would dominate against the earlier cars. The focus of discussion was on Formula Ford – the key differences seemed to be inboard suspension and better aero. I can see their point (they were against post-84 FFord in historics) but surely it has to happen at some stage? Mind you the number of classes at historic race meets might start to get (further!) out of hand...
Not to mention other classes, you basically never see them any more - is there any other open wheel classes other than FFord, F3, F2, F4000 operating? Only FFord is very healthy out of that list.
What do people think?
