V8 Supercars Australia To Discuss Manufacturer Cap After Volvo Signs On
Published June 18, 2013
DOWN THE ROAD: In Brisbane, Andrew Maclean reported V8 Supercars "may be forced to ditch its V8 roots by the end of the decade as car makers continue to move away from large-capacity engines." Skaife said that the sport "is currently evaluating its long-term future to remain as relevant to the car-buying public as possible and build on its ability to attract new manufacturers to the sport." He "did not discount the probability" the sport would eventually have to undergo one of the most significant shake-ups since it ditched the global Group A rules in '93 to form V8 Supercars. Skaife said, "We cannot lose the customer appeal that our sport has generated and at no point can we move away from the spectacle we have" (BRISBANE TIMES, 6/17).
