    Next year they go to a common chassis so pretty much any car can be used

    However doors still need to open and real headlights/tailights and grill openings

    Full disclosure: I'm a big time NASCAR fan, so...

    A lot of people stateside assume that V8 Supercar is more production based than NASCAR, probably because they did a better job actually make them look like the cars they're supposed to be. The reality is, they're tube-chassis, purpose-built race cars, just like NASCAR.

    If you want real V8 racing on production cars, you'll need to go Rolex Sport Car series. That's about it, besides your local drag strip or dirt oval!

    This will be the last season that they will be based on factory pressings and a modified factory floorpan. next year will be an tubular common chassis with production panels and composite that will still resemble this years car as they say it's all under the skin.
