Sorry Gando, didnt really answer your Q.. You're right, people have and will continue to drop off as the sport evolves. As Matt already said, the Falcons have already been replaced by the Mustangs, however they're still Fords. Some Aussie Holden fans will not accept Chevy as a replacement.

I've always loved Holdens, (Toranas, Premiers and Monaros are a thing of Beauty) even as a kid, years before I started watching Supercars. I'm willing to accept the change to Chevy and hope they're as competitive as the Mustangs have been, especially this year with the Mustangs taking 1 and 2 in the Championship.

Bathurst week!! The Gen 3s were supposed to be running next year but have been pushed out til 2023, due to Covid.

Fans will be able to watch the official launch of both the Gen3 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Ford Mustang GT live from this year’s Repco Bathurst 1000. Both the Gen3 Camaro and Mustang will be officially unveiled on Friday December 3 at Mount Panorama.
Gen3 cars will carry out on-track exhibitions at events in 2022 before the cars make their racing debut in the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship.

Bathurst week!! I'm tipping my Redbulls, Giz and Tander. I think the Davidson Bros will run well, Chaz and Fabs also, maybe. I wonder how many people the Kostecki Brothers are going to piss off or take out...

I love that Whincup is co driver to Rookie Feeney and Lowndes is driving with Redbulls Super 2 driver, Declan Fraser.
I've swapped my Sunday shift so I can sit with some Grey Goose all day and enjoy the race.

Always makes Qualifying and Top 10 Shootout interesting, guaranteed at least 2 safety cars during the race.
Van Giz doesn't mind the rain. Carn the Redbulls! 💪🏆

And for the last time: Holden owns the Mountain YET AGAIN. Great drive by SVG, Mostert brought it as well and pushed him all the way at the end, but SVG’s too good, too solid. Ford in the bin again at Bathurst.

I've always been a Holden/Chevy boy, and my boy racer days are over now, but the latest Mustangs are pretty beasts...

My favourite interview of the weekend which was done pretty early on in the race when he handed over to his co-driver. You can count the people who arguably know the Mountain better than Murphs on one hand, so when he speaks, people should listen, and with how chaotic that first stint was, he was spot on here. Lucky for all involved everyone settled the **** down.

I did see this interview, at least Stanaway had Murph's experience to help guide him through the madness for them to finish 11th. I also seen a post from Russell Ingall about the absolute vitriol aimed at Zane Goddard. I understand fans being frustrated at what happened but some of the things being posted border on criminal.

Meanwhile, I'm ecstatic with my Triple 8's finishing in the top 8. Some hilarious interviews on the breaky TV mostly with Tander, poor Giz celebrated a bit too hard.

Any F1 fans here? Gotten really back into it over the past few years and pretty pumped for the season to start

I don’t follow it as much with Webby and Ricci gone, but i’ll watch Piastri with great interest.

Michael Schumacher was one of my idols growing up, I always hope for a miracle with his recovery.

Always loved Schumacher. The Netflix documentary on him was great as well.

Piastri is a serious talent and seems very mature and knowledgeable for his age - he will end up better than Webber and even Ricciardo IMO but right now he is in an absolute pig of a Mclaren, the same car that ruined Danny Rics confidence.

He will need to find a seat at one of of the top teams to challenge for podiums and championships because I don't see Mclaren even getting back to the top of the midfield anytime soon.

All he can do is try to beat Lando consistently in Quali and Race and drag that car up into some top 10 finishes and I think he will get some offers eventually for the seasons to come. I think the whole grid knows he is something special and Lando himself is a gun driver.

Alonso and Hamilton will move on eventually so I think there will be opportunities for him - I don't think Sainz at Ferrari is necessarily safe either.
Red Bull isn't an option because they won't want someone to challenge Max.
