GM had no option but to pay 888 out, they are breaking the contract not 888.
Roland has also said that it's quite possible some team's will fold under the current economic climate, it's probably the only honest statement he has made about Supercars this year?

It's sadly pretty much a moot point to conduct an AMSCAR type of series under the current restrictions.
In most cases they are saying don't even move within your own state, let alone move across state borders,
and with teams based in more than one state, it's simply unfeasible.

Restrictions would have to be relaxed to the point where border travel would be allowed, and the previous 500 people
gathering relaxed - even if spectators aren't allowed into circuits. Trying to operate a race under a 500 people maximum
rule looks like being very problematic.

Stay within state borders, much shorter season. Which state has the most number of suitable permanent tracks?



If staying within State borders then you are looking at where teams are based rather than what tracks there are?

Victoria I would guess

Bathurst, Newcastle, SMP and we could bring back Homebush and Wakefield.....

Just saw Skaifey on FOX's Sports Saturday discussing the possibility of the summer series.

The other headline... No new manufacturers in 2021.
With the short turnaround between races this year (if any at all), probably means no teams would have the time/staff to get a new program up and running.
I reckon every team will keep running what they have.

But did Ford or Holden or Nissan improve their market share through supercars? No, the exact opposite!

So Ford, Holden & Nissan should pull all TV adds, Newspaper add, radio adds & other sport sponsorship because market share still dropped with them doing those types of Media activity & we have to take your definition of success & pull funding to all media spending in the years market share dropped!!

Are you starting to understand how simplicity your views are now?

They pulled from Motorsport worldwide - all to do with focussing on new energy.
The Australian dealers wanted them to stay!

They didnít pull out of Motorsport worldwide.

For starters Volvo won the 2017 WTCC with their factory team


Pretty odd that the reigning Champion team didn't come back the very next year?
I'd call that pulling out, they just had to wait for contracts to lapse.
They even pulled out of the STCC - their own local touring car championship:

I believe the only link they have to Motorsport is through the WTCR program, running Lynk and Co. cars via Cyan:

Volvo pulling out of Supercars was not a blight on Supercars at all - for the reasons listed above.
They moved to newer innovations which disregarded Motorsport. It was a Motorsport problem, not a Supercars problem.
In fact, I'd say it's the success story of the 21st century so far when compared to Holden now dead, Falcon dead, Nissan out, Erebus' attempt.

Dane had better find another manufacturer to pay his bills for him.


Which should be an easy enough task.



Don't bet on it. Car industry around the world isn't exactly kicking goals, then add the effects of the Corona virus and you could see a world wide recession. Until things settle down purely from a business sense it my be harder than you think



Good opportunity for a savvy manufacturer to take the opportunity to increase their market share by keeping up or even increasing their promotional spend.


Name me a manufacturer that increased their market share as a result of being in Supercars.....


Volvo.
