    The second round of 2016 Brazilian Stock V8 Chmpionship shows the new Chevrolet body.

    It's awesome... Lets wait for a new mod for Automobilista! LOL

    Looks nice. I also like that there is some black on Barrichello's car to offset all that aqua green.

    The old Chevrolet body is slower then Peugeot body in top speed. The aerodynamics form os Peugeot is better. But they changed it with new Cruze body.

    Lookin' very good. Must admit that I was a bit surprised about the Chevrolet chassis change after Curitiba season opener. For sure as you said the main reason was because of the performance. The Cruze base is more aggressive, first moment when I saw it the front reminds me at the Camaro. :)
    Unfortunately it is very difficult to follow the series here in Europe because of massive information lag.

    Hopefully we will see this new Cruze model at some point in AMS.
    Greetings Jan

    Now, if anyone can point me towards a stream with English comms I'd be a very grateful chap :)

    Sounds interesting and confirmed my oberservations of the races there. In first race Fraga catched easily Wilson and Barrichello at the main straight and in second race Valdeno can't catch Nunes on the straights even he was braking very late. For sure P2P playing always a role.

    It seems that the 408 Chassis from Peugeot is running fantastic, but the Chevy is looking better. :)
    The main thing that I can't understand why only the competitive Cimed Racing Team is running the Peugeot.
    All the other strong teams like RedBull Racing or Eurofarma running the Chevrolet Chassis.

    Anyway, will be interesting for next races.
