PostSubject: Car swapping and test drives   Thu Apr 25, 2013 6:07 pm

Tuesday saw NASCAR Cup Champion and V8 Supercar driver swap cars at the Circuit of the Americas: http://nascar.speedtv.com/article/cup-kurt-busch-enjoys-first-ride-in-australian-v8-supercar/
It is an intriguing comparison. On a road course, the Cup car would dwarf the V8 Supercar on the straightaways due to the power advantage (600 bhp v 850 + bhp), but, the V8 Supercar is lighter and has more downforce – therefore the latter would close up in corners.

Personally: I love both machines.

Valentino Rossi Rossi also tested a NASCAR, but it was Kyle Busch's Nationwide Toyota at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He ran a laptime that would be good enough to finish inside the top 15 in a practice session:

C’mon, Raikkonen tried a Truck and Nationwide race… Wink
