They did, for a while ... from the article:
"A dabble in GT racing followed in late 2015, running an Aston Martin for two events out of a downsized shop in Ormeau, Queensland, under the new Ross Stone Racing banner."
"It’s a far cry from the 60-strong workforce the Yatala workshop hosted in 2012 before the Erebus takeover. Erebus leased the building from Stone before the team moved to Melbourne at the end of 2015 and, with a short-term tenant recently vacating, the time was right for RSR to move in."

SuperUtes set for Townsville 400 unveil

Will be good to see, hopefully put a few worries to rest (or create more)

If that's entertaining to you it proves that lap times aren't as important as you bang on about constantly.

Well if you go to a race you do indirectly pay for the supports as it's part of the event you're buying a ticket for. That is if you go that is.

Not trolling at all. I've seen you dismiss many peoples thoughts on supercar options due to lack of speed yet here you say these are entertaining.

Clearly the point being, speed isn't directly related to entertainment like you constantly belittle people with.

That's irrelevant as it doesn't matter if the supports are paying to be there or not you still pay to see them via event entry
