THE latest episode on Perkins Engineering’s YouTube channel continues a series charting the evolution of the various parts of V8 Supercars over time.
In this episode Jack Perkins compares the rear suspension setups on PE’s 1993 Bathurst 1000-winning Holden Commodore VP, 2003 Holden Commodore VY, and Perkins’ 2015 Gold Coast 600 race-winning Holden Racing Team Commodore VF.
The video highlights just how different the current Car of the Future generation machines are compared to the initial version of Group 3A touring cars from 1993.
