    According to what I read the car is still going to be run next year and the buyer gets the car after the end of the 2021 season less engine.

      i thought they tried to do this previously?

      as for the lease engine not being the latest and greatest, it would be a poor business model for an engine supplier to not give there customers (erebus was a walkinshaw engine customer) a competitive / latest package.

        I was referring to a engine being leased to someone outside Supercars competition. Doesn’t make much of a difference leasing an older engine for a ex Supercars chassis.
        Sutherland Shires #1 Escort? is that like being the 4th best prostitute in Kazahkstan?

          Yup my bad - end of next year.

          That is a lot of racing and risk but yeah no doubt there is some clauses.

          GRM is taking motorsocks aus to court over Herne. Hope they win, but fuck it's embarrassing.

            loved the dudes quote on social media this morning

            "Broc Feeney .
            Driven for 3 different Supercar Teams .
            Has a super licence because of his SuperCar experience .
            That’s why it’s called a Super licence not a TA2 license '

              I hope they lose, and have to pay costs. Why bother having rules when you can just go to court and get them overturned?

              It's probably posturing more than anything. Realistic odds of getting a court case and resolution in time for the event are somewhat low.

              Agree about embarrassing.

                It's shitty for Everingham to miss out because Baz and Gaz fucked up getting a Superlicence.
                Maybe they should have invested in a wildcard run for Herne before Bathurst.....

                  Crazy idea.. Actually race the kid in the car before entering it in the 1000?

                  Apart from all the stuff he would have learnt from doing that, it probably would have meant the licence application was approved.

                  I love what GR has done over the years, but this isn't his finest hour. I reckon it's pretty ordinary to throw a kid in a car for the 1000 having never raced in one before. If nothing else, Herne would have a much better chance of a good result at Bathurst if he had done a few events before hand.

                      They need to sort things quickly. It should have been the go to motorsport in the pandemic. It's lost a lot of support amongst the communities both inside and outside of car nuts.

                      It needs to be about the cars and racing. Drivers third. That way the most important things, spectators and sponsors will flock in.

                        You get the package that you paid for not necessarily the latest and greatest.

                          Heard Bo Seton was involved in a machining accident on the grapevine today, fucked him up pretty severely if the report I heard is accurate. Unhappy way to celebrate a 55 year anniversary of winning Bathurst!

                                The Juice is loose! Ojeda replaces Herne in GRM wildcard after GRM pulls appeal.
