Lee has done a good job and improved a lot over the course of the year. He deserves to keep his drive.

Should an all new Sydney startup team eventuate, they might be able to pick up cars and a lot pit gear from GRM as a bargain job lot at a good price. Maybe not the best Commodores but there isn't a lot of 888 cars available. The cars could be upgraded with 888 bits.

What about TEKNO which apparently wants to run two cars, but the Salmon connection seems to be a non starter. Are they still in the market for another REC?

Then there is KBR. They have an upgraded 888 spec car available and a second car that could be upgraded.

As I understand it, the Kostecki family are based in WA and the KBR workshop is in Qld. Could they be in line for the new Sydney Team?

888 is also running a brace of pay drivers in Super2. Maybe their families will up the cash input so that that team could upgrade to a second 888 run team, maybe with the families providing the RECs as well as the cars.

We could yet see 26 entries and a few wildcards.

If GRM hadn't dropped out, the REC market would have been very crowded.



There was an article the other day that's been referenced here about the ****fight between Salmon and Webb.





Found it:

it is interesting to note the claim that Jono Webb does not own the REC, so one might wonder just how much of TEKNO he owns and whether the deal will depend on Dad Steve.
quote:
The Webb family and Sydney property developer and racer Rod Salmon are now running rival bids for the deal, when originally they were meant to team up and work together.

A meeting scheduled for Wednesday (November 13) was due to review the plans and make a call on the future of the first Supercars team to be run out of Sydney since 2003.

For the first time since confirming the Team Sydney plan at the Bathurst 1000 – after the news was broken by autoaction.com.au – Supercars is publicly hedging its bets about when the team will be rolled out.

“It (Team Sydney) needs to be done right, that’s the number one priority,” Supercars CEO Sean Seamer told media at the Sandown 500 last weekend.

“It doesn’t have to be done fast, it needs to be done right.”

Right now, the plan is for a two-car team to be based in a temporary facility at Sydney Motorsport Park in 2020 ahead of moving into an all-new headquarters in 2021.

The team is intended to run two Triple Eight Holden Commodore ZBs for James Courtney and an as-yet un-named second driver.

The Webb family was to supply its existing Racing Entitlement Contract (REC) to the deal, while Salmon was to purchase another from among the three Supercars had ‘on the shelf’.

Salmon was never officially named as part of the deal, the official press release issued at Bathurst only referring to Tekno boss Jonathon Webb “finalising agreements with new partners”.

But the Webb and his father – and Tekno REC owner Steve – and Salmon have not pursued their mooted deal.

At Sandown last weekend there were strong rumours the Webbs were going it alone and Salmon was out of the picture.

But sources close to Salmon insist that he remains fully committed to the project, has no interest in aligning with the Webbs and believes he has the legal upper-hand in terms of agreements with parties relevant to the deal.

Those parties include the NSW government – which is tipping in $33 million to develop a motorsport centre of excellence at SMP – the Australian Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) – which runs SMP – and the Confederation of Australian Motorsports (CAMS).

Whoever ends up being Team Sydney, Supercars is clear it must race two cars, meaning the Webbs have one REC to secure or Salmon two. RECS are currently quite cheap, valued at about $200,000 each.

Seamer indicated Wednesday’s meeting was a key milestone for the project.

“We will be reviewing the plan for Team Sydney next Wednesday and be looking to be finalising REC transfers or sale of RECs not long after that,” he said.

“So we are pretty much out of time, we have a view on what the different parties want to do so we are about a week away from a decision and confirmation on that.”

Asked if there was a chance Team Sydney may “fall over”, Seamer replied “not at this stage”.

“Our priority is making sure that we get the chance to work through the business plans and making sure everything is planning to be executed at the highest possible level given the importance to Supercars as a category, as a sport and for the NSW government as well,” he said.

Seamer explained there were a number of urgent priorities that had to be resolved.

“There are certain things that need to be done in the next week in terms of REC transfer and driver market. What the building is going to look like etcetera, less important.

“But getting the REC sorted out and getting the drivers sorted out and making sure the NSW government is happy with the plan and making sure the ARDC is happy with the plan, that’s the priority for the next couple of weeks.”

Webb was taciturn when approached about the future of Team Sydney by Auto Action.

“Nothing has changed from my point of view,” he said.

“You (media) can assume what you want to assume, as you have all done to date anyway. I am not making any comment on it.”

Truck Assist are announcing some "exciting news" on Trackside this arvo, perhaps Lee's new sponsor?

edit: on further thoughts - i think it'll just be confirmation that Le Brocq will be off to Tickford next year carrying the Truck Assist sponsorship with him

With the rumours of LeBroque heading to Tickford is it an earned drive through talent or more so a paid drive?. I’m genuinely asking here as I haven’t seen that much of him to know how good/bad he is.

I would have preferred Tom Randle to have worked his way through.

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

Sponsorship is a bit out of left field. Wonder if Le Brocq is wanted by Bottle-O or has another partner? Is Le Brocq a sure thing or could we see a shock switch to Randle at the 11th following a strong enduro cup campaign?

I stand corrected, he lost his sponsor unless they step up to 2 cars but i doubt that.
