S5000

Anyone else keen to see this get started this weekend?
I'm stoked Rubinho came over, and he seems to be getting to grips with it:

I am looking forward as well,  I have been keeping an eye on it
You're nearly a good laugh
Almost worth a quick grin
You like the feel of steel
You're hot stuff with a hatpin
And good fun with a handgun

They have an impressive sound.

A big props to GRM for preparing these cars.
Only one retirement, and 8 cars only had their first run on Wednesday. ;)

They sound approximately 1000x better live. Even the TV nowhere near does the sound justice. Even the TCR cars sound heaps better live than on TV.

I reckon the F1 paddock will come out from under its rock when these things line up in Melbourne next year. ;) 8)

Yep, they have a beautifully deep tone.
