The Dude: Gen3 will not save money

Bathurst winner Paul Morris tells PARKED UP PLUS why he believes Gen3 won’t reach all of its objectives.

30 August 2022

Former Supercars team owner Paul Morris says Gen3 has failed on its goal to reduce costs.
 
The straight-talking Bathurst 1000 co-winner questions the benefits of next year’s switch to the new-look Mustang and all-new Camaro.
 
In the latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast, Morris outlines what he sees as the flaws of Gen3 and claims teams will have to burn the midnight oil and put themselves under major pressure to be ready for the start of next season at the revived Newcastle 500 in early March.

Listen here:

‘The Dude’ tells presenter Mark Fogarty why he believes Gen3 won’t reduce costs as promised amid delays and expected budget blow-outs.
 
While acknowledging that Gen3 will make it across the line for the start of the 2023 season, Morris reckons it will be at great cost and effort for already hard-pressed teams.
 
As a noted young driver ‘whisperer’, he also takes Supercars to task over the sky rocketing cost of driver development in Super2.

 
Morris partnered Chaz Mostert to a dramatic last to first victory in the 2014 Bathurst 1000. He has also completed the Mount Panorama ‘Triple Crown’, winning the Bathurst 12 Hour and Six Hour enduros as well.
 
A respected long-time competitor, Morris is famous for his outspoken comments as co-host of the popular “Enforcer And The Dude” online show.
 
Also on the latest PARKED UP PLUS, Queensland Raceway owner and Triple Eight majority shareholder Tony Quinn is heard for the first time about his horrendous Carrera Cup crash.
 
Amid his recovery, Quinn reveals his racing future, and his hopes for QR’s return to the Supercars championship next year as his Hampton Downs track looms as the logical replacement for Pukekohe to host NZ’s Supercars round from next year.
 
PARKED UP PLUS also exposes the ‘secret’ Supercars wildcard cap and DJR’s boss explains his plan to protect the legacies of Australian touring car racing legends.
