Another interesting observation - Polestar were apparently interested in purchasing 2 RECS, rather than going with GRM.

The #888 REC is ex JRR. The Superblack REC went to the Blanchard family, but was PMM prior, from memory.

It is interesting to me that Mr Morris had registered his interest in purchasing a REC, having just offloaded one. Although he only spent a mere 45mins perusing the finer details.

You would presume/hope having just stepped out of ownership of a REC that Mr Morris might already be across the finer details.

Mr Klein was the great hope... didnít translate into a sale however.

Can anyone confirm if the tyre bank is transferred with the REC?

If that were so, then perhaps this would have had an impact on value?

Yes it does, from memory, to a maximum of 64 tyres, in whatever condition and combination of hard/soft the selling REC holder supplies them in..

The part about reducing racing KMs explains something which I've wondered about in recent times. They seem to travel an awfully long way for some events and not spend much time on track.

I recall a team having bugger all testing availability after a swap of REC ownership. Ex-TKR springs to mind, although i thought it was more recent than that.

I am sure some teams at the Winton end of pitlane would prefer to see even less kilometres.

Would that not be because the Super Black Racing REC was sold to John Blanchard, as opposed to the 888/Vortex one which, for memory, was ex TKR/ANZ Bank/FFF one?

Maybe i'm not reading enough into it, but seeing as GRM at the time were racing as "Volvo Polestar Racing", i took the Polestar reference to mean that GRM wanted two more RECs?

Wasn't that Lowndes last year, as the REC had been dormant and therefore had no tyre bank?

No usable tyre bank.

So yes, effectively a pile of tyres only suitable for ride days.
