Re: this is why restrictors are hurting IPRA!

going back a bit and reading a number of comments and a few people have referenced xr6t's as a car that would be good to see on the grid but it cannot be done easily or cheap due to capacity multiplier. If it was to be allowed as a 4.0ltr effectively making it 6.8ltr what controlling method is most ...

Re: IPRA The future in Australian Motorsport

the only thing that costs more in IP is the tyres? Tyres that commonly last a whole season, that's a cost of less than $3.00 per lap. Which is probably way less than you spend on fuel Cheers Gary Never let the truth get in the way of a good story. You know the guy you are arguing with runs a high p...

Re: IPRA The future in Australian Motorsport

you'd be surprised most front running ip cars are more than competitive in sports sedans and in rays case very easily challenging for podiums (state level not national). Look at pi for example where the likes of ray, maitland etc can more than hold there own in SS. Tyres are a similar cost if not ch...

Re: IPRA The future in Australian Motorsport

The support we receive in Victoria from Traction Tyres is fantastic and has been for many years. The A050 is a great tyre. Not sure why people even want to change or are complaining about them? Imagine trying to police the amount of tyres people use over a weekend? Impossible and am not really sure...
