Popular pitlane pundit Mark Larkham has delivered his verdict on the title showdown between Brodie Kostecki and Shane van Gisbergen at this weekend’s VAILO Adelaide 500.
Speaking exclusively to the Speedcafe Newscast podcast, Supercars tech expert Larko also demystifies the upcoming Gen3 wind tunnel tests in America.
The loveable larrikin of Supercars’ broadcasts explains in plain language how next month’s expensive off-shore aero trials – and local transient dyno engine measurements – are aimed at ending the Camaro versus Mustang parity debate. Listen here:
As well, Larko outlines who he thinks will win the title battle – and why.
Kostecki goes into the Adelaide 500 leading van Gisbergen by 131 points, with 300 up for grabs in two 250 km races. Kostecki’s Erebus Motorsport and SVG’s Triple Eight are also fighting for the teams’ crown.
But it’s Larko’s insight into Supercars’ big splurge on finally getting Gen3 parity right that is most compelling – and understandable amid so much technical gobbledygook.
A DJR Mustang and a Triple Eight Camaro are already in America, waiting to be forward to the Windshear wind tunnel in North Carolina.
They are scheduled for three days of aero testing starting December 2, overseen by Supercars head of motorsport Adrian Burgess before he moves on.
Larko will feature as usual throughout this weekend’s Adelaide 500 coverage on Fox Sports and Seven.
