    Hopefully the Kia rumours are true. We can’t just have a euro Holden and a Mustang out there.

    Camaro might still be there yet, but like the Stang, it isnt really going to look like a Camaro.

    TCR will take over within 10 years I reckon.

    Really a fairytale finish. Send the Falcon off a winner, in the classic Shell #17 colours, just brilliant.

    It's kind of amusing. All these years of running a antiquated Ford/Holden class, now people are hoping Kia joins supercars!

    Those billionaires help each other out.

    The Australian car is gone and thus we should branch out, makes sense.

    As I said earlier, itll be TCR soon enough. More people drive Hyundai I30s than Mustangs, Stingers and Opels together.

    Nah man. It makes sense to phase out of existence.

    After years and years of "It's got to be Ford and Holden" with Nissan, Volvo and MB being merely a token support cast, now you have rusted on supercar fans saying they hoping Kia join. Kia, for whatever else they make, is primarily seen as a small car manufactuerer, which is seen as ghey by those who've diminished tcr and super touring previously.

    So what you're saying is the Touring Car Masters will become our premier racing class. :tearsofjoy:

    Poor Steven Johnson. The spud was finally winning races and now we have Red Bull Toranas and Shell GT’s.

    Just read an article on car advice. They are saying that it is selling well, every one brought in is sold.
    I don’t think anyone can expect it to reason commodore or falcon levels of sales.

    They're really fun cars to drive too, I spoke to a dealer last week and he reckons it's not spilling enough to make a profit but hopes Kia persist.

    Hope it’s going well. The Genesis G70 sport is on my radar when it comes to Aus

    Is that confirmed ??

    It's becoming a thing in motorsport these days, I'm not sure I like it. Skaife and Whincup have mentioned carrying the #1 adds a bit of an intimidatory factor, I'm not sure about that either but I like seeing the 1 on the champions car.

    Especially now as the drivers keep "their" number.
    The trend has been to create a brand around the number.
    **** that! Gimmie that #1 !!!!!

    A lot of NASCAR about that. I do like the idea of creating a brand around the number like NASCAR do.

    Its true, Hamilton does it, Rossi and Marquez do it too.

    Chances are you'll use 'your' number more than the number 1 during your career, so why not use it.

    It got to the point with Supercross and Motocross that the AMA made using the #1 mandatory.

    Stanaway gone after a year.

    Holdsworth and LeBroq rumoured replacements. Davidson and 23Red also moving into the Tickford garage.
