They operate on the basis of at least one story a day. They'll hold back on something if they're expecting a slow tomorrow.

SUPERCARS SET TO CHANGE HANDS
By PAUL GOVER, News Limited
Supercars headquarters in Sydney is preparing the paperwork for a potential sale.
At least three consortiums are believed to be considering a bid that would take the championship away from Archer Capital.

There has been lots of talk about a sale over the past six months involving money men from various locations including Australia and Asia.

Archer is believed to be rationalising its holdings and is already moving on the sale of the two properties which are bundled in the same business division as Supercars.

The private equity company paid $300 million for the rights to Supercars more than five years ago, but subsequent write-downs mean it could accept a bid for a substantially lower figure.

But, as yet, none of the bidders have gone public with their plans.

One of the potential players, according to the Australian Financial Review newspaper, is sports entrepreneur Bart Campbell. He is a transplanted New Zealander who lives in London and has a number of sports properties including the Melbourne Storm rugby league team.

But pitlane chat says there are a number of personality clashes and potential hitches involved in any potential deal, which hinges on the approval of Archer’s supremo, Peter Wiggs.

Teams could also tip the balance on a sale, as they have ‘tag along’ rights which means they have to be offered a payout for their stake that matches any offer to Archer Capital.

Be nice if the facts were straight there..

The business has an enterprise value of $300m, Archer bought a proportion of that, not the whole.

When fundamental errors exist like that, what chance the rest is valid?

To be honest, a search of the interweb showing multiple figures being thrown around in various forms by news outlets, not to mention the write down that apparently occurred recently.

Interesting development

It is understood that Sports and Entertainment Limited, which sold Archer a 65 per cent stake in the business in 2011 for $180 million, has been studying sales documents for V8 and will be one of the parties attending management meetings about the business in UBS offices over the next two weeks.

SEL, a sports promoter that also acts as adviser to personalities such as Melissa Doyle, Shane Warne and George Gregan, did not comment on its level of interest.

SEL will join Fox Sports in pursuing the operation.

As for any possible return of the Black Wiggle.Like everyone else- NOOOO!He makes James Warburton look like the patron saint of motor sports.

Picked fights with other categories, played a major role in killing off our most fabled enduro, messed around our second most fabled enduro.......Made people alot of money though so I guess thats all that matters....

he was a major advocate of FTA though so I guess not all was bad about him

It seems like he's got his hands full with the Gold Coast Suns at the moment though.

Would Newcastle survive a TC return?

So if Fox Sports bought the series, they don't have to pay themselves for the next round of tv rights ?

Dont think TC is part of SEL any more, not mentioned as a director on its website, so its a non issue

on the positive site, brought us the Clipsal 500. made the bathurst 1000 bigger, brought us the townsville event

Just for correction, he helped start a new race in competition to the Bathurst 1000, and this new race in 2016 was bigger than the 1996 Bathurst 1000.... no reason to think the 2016 Bathurst 1000 wouldn't have been as big as the 2016 Supercheap Auto 1000 was though if unfettled... I guess we'll never know?

Good question.... this move would follow in the footsteps of Eurosport who has owned the WTCC since it's rebirth in 2005 (and owned the re-birthed ETCC from 2001 to 2004 that morphed into the WTCC)

I would assume Fox Sports the channel wouldn't be the buyer would it, but Foxtel itself?
