Gen3 parity argument rages on

PARKED UP PLUS podcast reveals ongoing engine feud following the Beaurepaires Melbourne SuperSprint.

04 April 2023

Ford teams still have engine parity concerns following the Beaurepaires Melbourne SuperSprint at Albert Park.

The support races at the Australian Grand Prix were dominated by Chevrolet Camaros, with Mustang squads complaining they lacked high-speed engine response in racing conditions.

On the latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast, DJR chief David Noble confirms Ford teams met over the weekend to discuss the iniquity, asking Supercars authorities to look further into engine parity. Listen here:

Amid the F1 drama at Albert Park, Supercars had its own issues with the wet race tyre loophole, crash damage, engine fires and shortened races.

Questions have been asked about whether Supercars should continue at the AGP after being downgraded behind new arrivals FIA Formula 2 and Formula 3.

There are fears a revamp of pitlane facilities will further marginalise Supercars, looking at an option for a minimum two-year renewal.

Supercars supremo Shane Howard addresses this and the 2024 calendar on PARKED UP PLUS, as well as finally coming out to deny that drivers have been ‘gagged’ from criticising Gen3.

Also, Triple Eight boss Jamie Whincup continues his criticism of his team’s disqualification from its one-two in the first race at the Newcastle 500.

And PARKED UP PLUS this week reveals that the Gen3 prototypes have been offered for sale, likely already purchased by a collector.

All this and more in the latest episode, presented by motorsport authority Mark Fogarty.
