Since Triple Eight has Holden factory support, could they take over Walkinshaw's HSV operation?

The racing deal and the road car deal have always been completely seperate deals, even in the Brock/HDT days

I fail to see how a racing team could have anything to do with a manufacturing operation.

Without Holden cars manufactured to hot up, it is difficult to know what HSV's future might be.

Holden I'd imagine has no desire for it to just be bolt on hot up bits, this HSV retiring.

Walkinshaw Performance has good form for that sort of thing.

Is there actually a marketing need for a factory-endorsed tuning shop down here in a full import market?

Presumably any go faster parts for Insignia/Commodore with a factory stamp of approval will show up ex-Europe now..

I'd have thought all European-sourced GM products would have OPC/VXR branding on them too.

Upon reflection and what others have said, I can see the logic of HSV re-branding to become Walkinshaw Performance. After this year, they're be no different to other companies like Tekno, Tickford, etc.

Walkinshaw Performance has existed for quite a while already. They planned this out well.

Maybe beforehand, but not going forward I wouldn't imagine, given GM selling their European brands Opel & Vauxhall to PSA.

When does that kick in though?

We already have the new Astra here, with more Euro-GM vehicles (Commodore included), in the offing.
