AMS - Mount Panorama - Super V8 - 105% AI race

Jose Ortiz
BATHURST CIRCUIT: Bathurst is a motor racing track located in Bathurst, Australia. It is the home of the Bathurst 12 Hour motor race, held each February, and the Bathurst 1000 motor race, held each October. The track is 6.213 km long. When not used for racing this is a public road.

So what’s different about a Next Gen V8 Supercars car versus a 2012-model V8 Supercar?

Fixed chassis design and specification. All chassis are dimensionally identical, but different accredited vehicle builders can construct them.
Engine mounted 100mm further back and down. Protects engine in case of frontal impact and improves weight distribution.
Increase in wheel and tyre size to 18-inch. Bigger brakes can therefore also be fitted.
Windscreen becomes polycarbonate. It’s 250 times stronger than glass.
Collapsible steering column with collapsible section in engine bay, not in the cabin.
Different transmission, moving to a transaxle, which incorporates the differential and gearbox in one assembly.
Adoption of IRS (Independent Rear Suspension) with control pickup points and a control specification of uprights and wishbones.
Fuel cell moved further forward in the car to protect from rear impacts.
