Ok, so we know the supertourers are definitely quicker than NZV8's and half the price of V8 supercars, but how do they compare speedwise?  Are they the same or slower or do we need to run a supertourer on Bathurst to know for sure???

When Greg Murphy took his old 2007 V8 Supercar round Hampton Downes when it first opened, he did a 1.04 or 1.05 min

Fastest lap on the same track, from a V8 Supertourer, was 1 min 23 by Fabian Coulthard

So quite a bit of difference

can't wait till Nissan, and the other big manufacturer come back into the V8 Supercars later this year/early next year!

I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.
