bortall should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I was thinking it would be the upcoming announcement of the Penguin 500 @ Antarctica Raceway.

Very inneresting... Nissan/Infiniti have been murmured, they have motorsport form, and they have some form of motivation if they are gonna spend big bucks to brand Infiniti here, lets not forget V8s are only behind AFL football and cricket for audience size.

If 'this' is the signifigant announcement, my post from earlier stands true. Biggest anticlimax of the sport.

Mr Phelps is a little light on the details, like not even hinting at who might be running Nissan product in 2013...

Its still a bloody big announcement... and helps build the diversity of brands in the sport. Maybe even Peter McKay wont be able to put excrement on every move V8SA make in the future.... Nah...

Actually... if you thought a little longer about tomorrow's game-changer... I wonder if the TBA round later in the season, and perhaps the announcement of a new brand into the sport may be related....

A stop over at Mt Fuji, Suzuka or maybe even a Tokyo street race might also be on the cards. Or not. Maybe its a Seoul street race, or a run on their F1 track

Too many options not enough announcements

We know VESI like to blow things out of the water...but this does sound rather big. Either new brand coming in or a new international race after Abu Dhabi this year

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
so who are the melbourne based teams

HRT have a Holden contract.
KR, an obvious and already discussed team
GRM, a previous link to Chrysler, but that doesnt mean anything
FPR have a Ford contract for next year

it really does have to be Kelly's 4 cars team ready to go
