26FPR debuts Falcon Car of the Future for V8 Supercars series

This new racer is being tested in preparation for the 2013 Australian V8 Supercars season.

The guys that make all the traditionally staid staff at NPR cringe whenever they come on the air will be making an appearance on NOVA this week.

Having heard these guys in the past, I'm not sure how much they know
