If Supercheaps budget were the same, how would going to a single car team where the cost average per car calculates higher, equal a better opportunity or paycheque for Chaz?

is the logic, and i may be wrong, that you get the benefit of being a close customer of Triple 8 giving you the scale.

But i see your point

Because the pilot and his wiggly line watcher can develop their own setups around a brilliant base package, and not have to share setups with any teammates or anyone else....

And... Tekno might get some product ranged in SuperCheap stores..

Or so the story goes

Chaz is set to stay with PRA, don't worry. As far as the person I know working for PRA knows he is contracted to the end of 2019. I was talking with them on Friday about V8s in general and Chaz, Cam and Frosty (from the body language they are getting) all want to stay with PRA. As for Bright, as long as he has experience and money to help PRA (which I believe he has this year, yet is ignored, just like Dale Wood with Erebus) then he can either stay or hire Jacobson/Stanaway for next year

Tekno's gear isn't what you'd normally find at a Supercheap...

Which might be the point... thete is definitely a shift in strategy for Super Retail to be more involved in the fitment business, especially after announcing the Bosch joint venture Here and existing work on replacement of simple consumables at store level.

I think they're up for renewal this year. Pretty sure it was a two year deal. I'd be surprised if they didn't resign given Chaz's performance, not entirely consistent but a lot of that was all PRA cars not being on song

Auto Action today is reporting that Garry Rogers is looking to expand into a four car Supercar team for the main game in 2018, if it happens it will free up 2 extra seats at that team, seeing as Garry is known for giving youngsters a go it might be an avenue for some Super2 drivers
