Other countries run GT3 regs in multiple national championships (until last week's CAMS announcement Australia did too)

Also isn't Supercars classified as an International series, while AGT is a National Championship?

Absolutely nothing to do with CAMS, or national championships. Tony Quinn owns the exclusive rights to running GT3 regulations under the SRO.

They could just adopt GT3 regs for the Supercars Championship, there is no need for them to buy the promotional rights to AGT to saferguard any Gen2 failure
It's a cost and time effective backup plan all the teams just need to do is buy new customer cars over manufacturers or get factory backing (which would be much easier) and it's pretty much good to go

Did the ACO buy the rights off SRO to run their GT3 series, which is in direct competition to SRO's series?

Ratel created the formula, but they are a set of FIA regulations which seem to be freely used elsewhere in the world, why would Quinn get exclusive rights to GT3 regs in Australia?

I was under the impression Ratel gets a cut for the use of GT3.

But anybody who owns the rights to anything in Australia must have a) created what it has the rights to and b) automatically uses that right to the detriment of motorsport in Australia. And causes autism

Having some sort of rights to an Australian TCR series wasn't a bad idea either.

A free to air deal with a TV Network in administration isn't likely to impress potentially buyers.

Not Supercars fault, just unfortunate timing.

As befits the top level of motorsport it the country.

If fact the rules should allow more flexibility in development. Of course all this costs money but I want to see the teams being allowed to pushed the limits of development.

I've said this time and time again, so I'm going to put it in capitals in case some are hard of hearing:

DISCUSS THE SUBJECT, NOT EACH OTHER.

Thank you.

Points may follow. Deletions already are happening.
