Q&A PODCAST: Project Blueprint, Privateer’s Dashes, Pace Car sleuthing

WE’RE back and we’re answering your questions on the episode of the V8 Sleuth Podcast for 2023.

A wide range of topics came out of the mailbag this week, including:

  • The last pre-Project Blueprint chassis to compete in the ‘main game’
  • Who was the most successful driver in the Privateer’s Dashes from the late 1990s?
  • Nissan’s Bathurst-winning GT-Rs … or should that be GT-R?
  • The fate of the Gen3 prototypes
  • Holden’s most loyal ATCC/Supercars driver
  • And plenty more!
