He should try his hand at Sportscars, the endurance aspect is perfect for someone of his skillset.

Seems to be a bit of a WR refuge.

When you look at Wikipedia there is no mention of a parent.
It is in fact VERY CLEAR that the parent of Walkinshaw Racing is SCOTT CORPORATION P/L. I do not know how you missed it.

That company has other subsidiaries including Chemtrans P/L, Bulktrans P/L and others.

The parent company of Scott Corporation is K & S Freighters P/L which we have all seen their trucks on Australian roads.

Very clear from a likely errant entry on Google?

http://abr.business.gov.au/SearchByA...bn=87104516038

ASIC search is currently down, but no changes to the Walkinshaw Performance ABN since 2014.

I'm here to strongly suggest that Walkinshaw Performance is still owned and controlled by the Walkinshaw family.

With respect we are at cross purposes. I was referring to Walkinshaw Racing. You are referring to Walkinshaw Performance.

In December 1999 Fred Gibson sold Gibson Motorsport to Garry Dumbrell (Paul and Lucas' father). In December 2000 Dumbrell sold the team. It was reported that Gibson had purchased the team back lock, stock and barrel.Drive.com.au 4 January 2001

But as it later transpired, Gibson had only purchased the franchise with the team purchased by Bob Forbes. Gibson's role with the team was as an employee and landlord, but not as team owner. Ford, who were the team's primary sponsor, were kept in the dark about the arrangement and presumably was why they cut their funding and rehoused Lowndes at the end of 2002. Fred Gibson & Noel Watson vs Bob Forbes court action ruling

The Walkinshaw Racing Wikipedia article lists Ryan Walkinshaw as the team principal, with no mention of Scott Corporation. Not sure where google was getting its information, but if you now type 'Walkinshaw racing' into google.com.au, the offending text no longer comes up, so presumably has been fixed.

Correct. I should have remembered that, given my sister worked for Gary at the time.

also add Longhurst and Team Dynamic

So who owns cars, equipment , merchandise, plant, facilities, transporters, and the biggest question,
Who Owns the Drivers names on the Merchandise ?
The Driver, The team, Supercars.

footnote:

I was involved with Junior AFl in QLD for 12 years, when we wanted to buy junior jerseys, we meet a lot of conditions. We could buy some of the clubs, but not all, as the license agreements weren't with the clubs but with AFL
The AFL held rights over some clubs , VFl others

Who owns Who , and who has the rights to a name , a signature , a picture .

old news report

from memory the distance was too great so it was prepared on east coast, So might not work for you Sandgroper

Still the key point is, reckon WR will be for sale soon
we are too busy here in WA trying to keep the Perth Motorplex (Local Drag racing and speedway facility) alive.

So no at this point...........all my funds are being put together for the 2018 Bathurst Push corporate box :O)
